Why we Love Barn Weddings Decorated with Paper Lanterns

 Barn weddings give a bride and groom the opportunity to really put their stamp on their wedding by creating a breathtaking scene for the day, and, no two barns are the same so every barn wedding is truly unique!

Here’s our top three barn weddings dressed with an array of our hanging paper lanterns…

Rivervale Barn, Yateley, Guildford

Warm fairy lights strung across the width of Rivervale Barn add extra light to this open, airy wedding venue and allows a bridal party to incorporate colours including navy blue into their colour scheme without the dark shade being too over powering.

A mixture of navy blue, baby blue and soft cream paper lanterns have been hung between 50 and 100cm apart directly on the fairy light strings. This paper lantern canopy makes the most of the height of the barn and allows the pretty twinkling lights between the lanterns to really come into their own during the darker hours.

An added feature of Rivervale Barn is that you can hold both your ceremony and wedding reception here – decorate your ceremonial areas with sophisticated, elegant ivory and lace lanterns saving the colour for the celebratory side of the barn. Line the aisle with our laser cut birdcages and flickering candle Buttonlites and if celebrating during the summer months replicate this look outside in the grounds.

Upwaltham Barn, Chichester, West Sussex

Sara and her team at To Have & To Hire Weddings styled Upwaltham Barns with our red and white round paper lanterns creating a cosy countryside vintage feel at this wedding venue near Chichester.

Sara worked with the bride and groom to create an intimate but relaxed setting to celebrate with friends and family.

In a beautiful rustic barn with exposed beams and brickwork it is important not cover up any of the natural and authentic features. Paper lanterns and cotton bunting are an easy, effective way of adding colour to the room in sensitive way. The earthy tones of the brickwork were reflected in the warmth of the red hanging lanterns with hessian flags in the wedding bunting to complement the wooden surroundings.

Sussex Barn, Hellingly, East Sussex

 Strong regal coloured hanging lanterns look fabulous and dramatic at the Sussex Barn.

Crisp white paper lanterns contrast the beams whilst the icicle style fairy lights hung in amongst the lantern canopy draw the eye upwards and add a delicate sparkle to this Sussex wedding venue.

Hanging lanterns at varying heights from exposed wooden beams complements the natural atmosphere at a barn wedding whilst the tulle wrapped around the lower beams is a nod to the more traditional aspects of a big day.

I hope these have inspired all of you blushing brides for your own special wedding day!
