21 Idyllic Barn Wedding Venues

In recent years we have witnessed a notable rise in the popularity of idyllic, barn wedding venues, so much so that barns are now the most popular type of wedding venue in the UK.  It is unsurprising really given the romanticism of celebrating a wedding in a 300 year old, lovingly converted barn with impressive vaulted ceiling, exposed oak beams and magnificent brick-work.

Subsequently, we have seen dozens of disused or dilapidated old barns being tastefully renovated for the wedding market. And whilst many barn owners have focused on appealing to couples in search of the perfect rustic-styled wedding, there are plenty of conversions that have succeeded in fusing the traditional, boho-rustic wedding vibe with a contemporary and luxury-elegant-chic style that many in the mainstream so desire.

With the sheer variety of barns available, no longer are barn wedding venues the sole and exclusive domain of the bohemian bride and off-beat groom! Today we introduce you to our handpicked selection of 21 of the most idyllic and charming barns in the UK.
