Barn Wedding Venues: West Country Top 10

It comes as no coincidence that barn wedding venues are one, if not the most popular choice of wedding venue styles in the country. Acting as both a blank canvas and a fully decorated wedding venue all at once, barn venues can look just as beautiful decked to the nine's as they do being left to their natural beauty and decorations kept to a minimum. The high ceilings bring grandeur, whilst the exposed brick walls bring that cosy feel that really embraces the family vibe of a wedding. Often found hidden within acres of their own grounds, this often means many barns offer late licenses, no corkage and accomodation on site. Now if that doesn't make your mind go 'tick, tick, tick!' we don't know what will! 

So to celebrate the wonder that is the humble barn, here's our run down of the top 10 barn wedding venues in the West Country.

P.S. Don't forget, if you want to explore barn venues all over the country, you can explore them all here.
