Rustic Barn Wedding
I enjoy weaving elements of your chosen setting into the style of my writing, and these are generally relaxed, and intimate celebrations, with a warm and upbeat tone. Because of my experience in barn weddings, I can also run through things like lighting, acoustics, and the orchestration of the ceremony and those involved, making sure that there is sufficient space for all of the things you have planned. Beware the red brick flooring! As much as I think it is a fabulous feature, and completely charming, it is advisable to warn guests in advance that there will be gaps in the floor so to plan footwear accordingly. . .or hire an aisle runner!

Fabulous Venue
I'm actually a supplier to this venue and it's one of my favorite places to work. Maybe it's because I'm a farmer's daughter so it makes me feel totally at home when I am working in the barn. The staff that run this venue are friendly and welcoming whether guest or supplier which says a lot in itself. If you are after an atmospheric country rustic vibe to your wedding then Gildings is your venue. The barn was lovingly built by family members and extended using trees that fell in the 1987 storm. I love these details and the warmth of the wood. Any floral installation I put up in the barn looks fab against the warmth of the wood. I can highly recommend!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

An extraordinary wedding based on a medieval-style banquet held at Christmas time, with long tables laden with a feast fit for royalty. All beneath the vast oak structure of Gildings Barn, illuminated by twinkling fairy lights. It was just spectacular and will be remembered for ever by everyone who experienced it. An incredible credit to the highly talented and artistic family members of the bride and groom.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Keep the decoration of the barns simple. They are stunning already, and are best complemented with country flowers or greenery and pretty bunting.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Wellington Boots (clean ones!) used as table centre pieces for the floristry decorations!
