Wedding Barns are a classic choice for quintessentially English weddings, as we have so many gorgeous wedding barn venues throughout the UK and in and around in Ayrshire East . With their totally romantic feel, stone floors and wooden beams, barns are perfect for couples who want something relaxed yet romantic. They're set in the beautiful countryside, often decorated by delicate fairylights on the oak beams. They usually always come with fantastic photo opportunities both inside the barn and throughout the grounds. Most wedding barn venues allow 'dry hire' where you have complete freedom to choose your own caterers and suppliers.

Barn venues are a perfect choice if you’ve always dreamed of a countryside wedding, as by their nature they tend to be in beautiful rural areas, with fabulous vistas. As well as lots of peace and tranquility, this means plenty of space for your guests to spread out. As some wedding barns are part of working farms, you may find there are even farmyard animals present on your wedding day!

Barns work for weddings of all sizes, as they come in a range of sizes. Some barns in Ayrshire East have several rooms connected so that you can hold the ceremony and reception in further spaces. Others are smaller and will have everything in one place, so don’t worry if you’re dreaming of an intimate barn wedding.

Wedding barn venues are perfect for you if:

  • You're dreaming of a country wedding
  • You want flexibility when it comes to the reception and ceremony set-up.
  • You want something that works in every season.

Wedding Barn Venues FAQ

To hire a barn wedding venue, how much will I be likely to pay?

Some couples are surprised to find that barns can cost the same as manor house wedding venues. As rustic wedding venues are increasingly in demand, barns are very popular with UK brides, which means that you’ll have to be a little flexible with your wedding date to save some pennies. Consider marrying on a weekday, or in an off-peak season. Barn venues look just as beautiful in early Spring and late Autumn as they do in Summer, so you can afford to pick a season with less competition.

What themes work well at a barn wedding venue?

Classic English garden and vintage wedding themes are ideal for a barn, as the natural textures, stones and woods work perfectly together. However, you shouldn’t feel that you can only have a rustic wedding theme! You can easily throw a glamorous black tie wedding in a barn venue in Ayrshire East - simply hang chandeliers and add plenty of luxurious floral arrangements and candles to your tables. Festival weddings and more casual, colourful themes are also brilliant in barn venues, as the colours really pop.

Won’t a barn venue be cold?

Most barn wedding venues have bee renovated to have an efficient heating system in to keep you and your guests warm even in the winter months! As well as central heating, you may also have the option of fire pits or patio heaters for the outdoor spaces. If you’re having a winter barn wedding, then you should be well taken care of, but you may want to provide blankets in case the evening gets chilly!

Can I have fireworks at my barn wedding?

As some barns in Ayrshire East are part of farms, they often have restrictions on pyrotechnics to avoid scaring animals. This also applies to sky lanterns and non-natural confetti. If you’re dreaming of fireworks at your barn wedding, we recommend filtering your barn venue search by Fireworks Permitted.

What if my guests want to stay over?

Unlike a hotel or manor house wedding venue, barn wedding venues are less likely to have bedrooms available for your guests to stay on site. Some barns in Ayrshire East may have nearby cottages or B&Bs as part of their grounds, but often you’ll have to travel a little further afield for guest accommodation. Consider putting on transport or arranging taxis for your guests, and making a weekend in the country out of it.
