OK, so we maybe biased, but barn weddings are best, right!?

Did you know that barn weddings are the most popular venue type, according to Hitched’s 2024 wedding survey with over a fifth of couples getting married in a barn and over a quarter having their reception in a barn! So barns are hip and cool!

So if you were undecided about whether to look at barn venues or not… here are five very good reasons to do so!

  1. Rustic Charm: Barn weddings exude a rustic and cosy charm that many couples find irresistible. The weathered wood, exposed beams, and country setting create a warm and inviting ambiance, perfect for a romantic celebration.
  2. Versatile Décor Options: Barns provide a versatile canvas for wedding decor. You can play with various themes, from elegant and vintage to Bohemian or shabby chic. Whether you prefer burlap and lace or floral arrangements and twinkling lights, the rustic backdrop of a barn will enhance any style.
  3. Picturesque Surroundings: Barn venues are often situated in picturesque rural locations, offering stunning views of rolling hills, meadows, or vineyards. The natural beauty of the surroundings provides a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding photos, creating lasting memories of your special day.
  4. Intimate Atmosphere: Barn weddings typically offer a more intimate atmosphere compared with traditional banquet halls or ballrooms. The cosy space encourages mingling and fosters a sense of closeness among guests, making everyone feel part of the happy celebration.
  5. Customisation and Personalisation: Barn venues allow for greater flexibility in terms of customisation and personalisation. You can tailor every aspect of your wedding at Godwick, from the layout and seating arrangements to the menu and entertainment, to reflect your unique style and preferences.

Okay, so we are biased as we are lucky enough to work in one of the finest wedding barns around and this does make us barn fans. However, with the versatility, setting, intimacy and personalisation possibilities of barn venues, it is no surprise that barns are more popular locations to tie the knot than hotels!
