Happy New Year, and congratulations if you have just got engaged over the Christmas and New Year period. If you are planning a winter wedding, have you thought about having it in a barn? Maybe not, as typically barns are used for summer weddings, but today we have a truly amazing styled wedding shoot that we are sure will make you consider having your winter wedding in a barn; it’s stunning.

This shoot shows that barns are a great blank canvas and you can make them look incredible. Using the rustic charm of the barn and the natural exposed beams, the team behind this wedding shoot have transformed the space. We adore the frosty palette of metallic that creates an enhancing winter look, the candlelight that gives the barn a romantic glow, and the rustic drinks table (every wedding should have one!).

“The shoot took place at Horseshoes Barn, launched by The House Meadow in 2013. Clare and I wanted to show that a barn wedding doesn’t have to be a summer wedding, and the Horseshoes Barn was the perfect blank canvas for the shoot.

“We thought the barn’s oak timbers would be contrasted beautifully by the soft, romantic, blush pinks, and the pale, frosty palette of metallic and woodland green would be key. We wanted to bring the outside in using the hay bales and foliage, but still keep a warmth about the shoot.

“Our bride, Meg, looked so glamorous and elegant yet effortlessly bohemian, and I love the juxtaposition of the soft petals and cotton balls in the floral crown against the barn’s wood and brick.”
