Great Barn Devon Weddings – Sarah & David

Sarah and David were married at The Great Barn earlier this year. This lovely couple chose simple, but colourful accents to really bring their wedding theme together. Bright blue bridesmaids and cheery sunflowers, plus lots of fun and games in the garden before the wedding breakfast. Captured beautifully by Fiona Walsh. They made full use of the grounds and garden and even our twinkly festoon lighting when the night drew in. What a wonderful day!

Great Barn Devon Weddings – Lauren & Jon

We are so excited to share this wedding with you today. Thank you so much Lucy Wallace Photography for sending over these beautiful images of Lauren and Jon, who were married with us this year. Lauren’s dress is absolutely incredible, don’t you agree!

Plenty of laughter, music and dancing was had by all and we ADORE the main image of all the gang together outside the barn doors. This makes us very happy indeed!
