6 reasons why we love a barn wedding

As far as wedding venues go, we think we’ve hit the jackpot with The Hall Barns. Tucked away in the most beautiful location in the Midlands, The Hall Barns manages to feel exclusive, cool, relaxed and super-special all at the same time. From our very own glampsite for guests to hang out before and after the big day, to the drop-dead gorgeous panoramic countryside views, it’s the most amazing setting for your wedding. Unsurprisingly, we’re big fans of a barn wedding; here are just 6 reasons why we think barn wedding venues rule!

1. The laid-back vibe

When you opt for a rural wedding venue you set the tone for a beautifully chilled out day. At The Hall Barns we want you and your guests to really make yourselves at home, and enjoy the indoor and outdoor spaces that are exclusively yours for the day. There’s something about a barn wedding that encourages a laid-back vibe – basically anything goes when it comes to personalising your day, and we’re all for it!

2. Perfect for a festival feel

A fancy hotel or manor house can’t quite capture that festival feel in the same way as a barn wedding venue. If you’re dreaming of throwing your own mini-Glastonbury style celebration, a barn wedding is where it’s at. At The Hall Barns you can bring your favourite festival to Leicestershire, with outdoor haybale seating, colourful bunting and – of course – our awesome on-site glamping field complete with fancy glamping pods, as well as plenty of room for your guests to pitch their own tents or camper vans.

3. location, location, location

If you are a country-loving couple, you can’t beat a barn wedding. With gorgeous countryside stretching as far as the eye can see, The Hall Barns is as idyllic as they come. Being surrounded by countryside makes you feel like you’re in your own little world for your wedding day – and the wedding photos are going to look incredible, fact. You may feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, but The Hall Barns is super-easy to get to. It’s less than a 10-minute drive from Loughborough and only half an hour from Leicester, so your guests will have no problems getting there.

4. All the ceremony options

Another thing we love about a barn wedding is how versatile the venue can be, giving you lots of options to create the wedding day you’ve been dreaming of. Fancy saying your ‘I do’s under beautiful exposed timber beams or al-fresco with just knock-out rural views as your backdrop? We’ve got it all covered at The Hall Barns.

5. Dreamy flowers

We are big fans of sustainably-sourced, in-season wedding flowers with a relaxed and romantic vibe. The excellent news is that this pretty aesthetic lends itself really well to a barn wedding setting. From textured bouquets with that ‘just collected these on a skip through a meadow’ feel to beautiful floral arches to dress up the aisle, it all just looks so right at a barn wedding.

6. Food, glorious food

The laid-back atmosphere a quirky barn wedding offers really gives you free rein with your wedding food. We don’t like to blow our own trumpet too much, but at The Hall Barns our food is outstanding. Forget about dull and uninspiring wedding menus, we’re talking indulgent sharing feasts made using the very best local ingredients, to fun evening food like chilli dogs and sourdough pizzas to fuel the party.
