Kent Barn Wedding - Inspiration

If you're looking for inspiration for your Kent barn wedding - then look no further than Beth and Glenn's gorgeous day at The Great Barn, Rolvenden. Nestled down a quite country lane, the barn is perfect for couples who are looking to put their own stamp on their wedding day. The Great Barn is a dry hire venue - leaving couples free to choose exactly how they want their wedding to look; from what tables/chairs to have, to where they're going to display their cake.

Beth and Glenn had lots of extra special touches on their wedding day, that made it uniquely theirs. The Heart of Kent Show Choir performed during the evening (the Bride being a member), they had a Gin bath to keep guests entertained, as well as the beautiful VW Beetle - a nod to the Bride's first car.

They opted for trestle tables to add to the rustic look, as well as an abundance of fairy lights and hops. The flowers were kept simple, and seasonal, allowing the stunning barn to really shine. Thinking of all of their guests, there was plenty for the children to do - from soft play equipment, to garden games and even a tipi especially filled with activities to keep them occupied.

Beth wore a beautiful, modern lace dress - accompanied by a stunning flower crown; whilst the groom and groomsmen chose to wear lovely pink-ish suits that were both modern and relaxed. The bridesmaids were in pale green dresses, with a bit of sparkle which caught the August sunlight!

I loved working with Beth and Glenn on their wedding, as they weren't worried about wedding 'norms', and wanted to create a day that truly reflected them and their family. It was such a fun-filled, relaxed day (despite the immense heat that we're just not used to here in the UK!) and it was clear to see how much they were loved by everyone there. They had a huge support network of friends and family who helped, meaning that their special day was also a celebration of those closest to them too!
