Go big with the photos

We like to think of The Hall Barns as an ‘anything goes’ kind of wedding venue. Our tucked away, rural location, surrounded by acres of the gorgeous Leicestershire Wolds, provides endless wedding photograph opportunities. For that mega-party, wedding festival feel, get create with your photos. Coloured smoke flares for the win!

Set up camp

There’s something about winding up your wedding day by camping out under the stars. But we’re not talking slumming it under a hastily erected pop-up tent that’s seen better days. Oh no. For your wedding you deserve something a bit special and that’s exactly what The Hall Barns offers. We’ve partnered with Champagne Camping to provide you and your guests with some amazing glamping pods between April and October. There’s also plenty of space for your guests to pitch their own tents or park their camper vans. And if Gran and Grandad aren’t so keen, we have our cosy self-catering Laundry Cottage less than a minute’s walk from The Hall Barns.

Do the speeches your way

What makes festival style weddings so awesome is the freedom to have your day, your way. The Hall Barns is a chilled-out setting where you can really go to town making your wedding as unique as you are as a couple. Throw away with tradition and replace the more formal wedding speeches with relaxed toasts around the campfire. We’ll make sure there are plenty of hay bales and seating for you and your guests to get comfy on.

Unexpected touches rock

A sparkler send-off is such a fun way to work that ‘put your lighters in the air’ feel. After all, you guys are the headliners at this festival wedding and The Hall Barns is your Main Stage. As well as looking great in your photos, it’s a cool way to mark the end of your official wedding celebration before you and your mates head to the campsite for your relaxed after party.

Wear what you want

It goes without saying that you can wear whatever the heck you like for your wedding, but a festival style celebration really does add an extra element of fun to dressing up. From statement sunglasses to personalised denim jackets, get creative and add your own twist to the traditional wedding dress or suit.

Music is key

What’s a festival style wedding without music, hey? At The Hall Barns you and your guests can party the night away under the exposed timber rafters of our beautiful 19th-century barn to the sounds of your favourite band or DJ. We’re really proud of our outdoor space and are pretty sure you’ll love it as much as we do – just imagine chilling in the sun with your new Mr or Mrs and all your guests to the sounds of your fave acoustic musicians. Wedding heaven!

Get creative with your food

Whether you want to hire street food vans to serve up your evening food or love the idea of freshly cooked stone-baked pizzas with your mates, The Hall Barns can make it happen for your festival style wedding. We’ll also make sure the fire pits are lit and there’s plenty of marshmallows and sticks for you to toast as the sun sets.
