What could be a more classic choice for an English wedding than a barn wedding, and with so many beautiful barn wedding venues throughout the UK and in and around in County Antrim we’re sure you will find your perfect choice of barn venue . With their gorgeous rustic feel, stone floors and wooden interiors, barns are perfect for couples who want something relaxed yet romantic. Enjoy the countryside views, beams strewn with fairy lights and bunting and beautiful photo opportunities, all while enjoying modern heating and sound systems. Most barn venues allow 'dry hire' where you have complete freedom to choose your own caterers and suppliers.

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

Barn wedding venues come in all sorts of sizes. Some are perfect for intimate weddings and you can hold each part of the day in the same room. Others are much larger so have multiple rooms for each part of the day.

Barn wedding 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.

Barn Wedding Venues in County Antrim FAQ

How much will I have to pay to hire a barn for my wedding?

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 County Antrim - 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?

The short answer is, no! Whether they’re modern and renovated or traditional and rustic, most barn wedding venues have fully functioning heating systems installed to prevent your guests getting cold if the weather isn’t great. 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 add some blankets in case the evening gets chilly!

Can I have fireworks at my barn wedding?

As some barns in County Antrim are part of farms, they often have restrictions on fireworks to avoid scaring livestock. 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 guest accommodation on site. Some barns in County Antrim may have nearby cottages or B&Bs as part of their grounds, but often you’ll have to travel a little further afield for your rooms. Consider putting on transport or arranging taxis for your guests, and making a weekend in the country out of it.
