Blessings at The Barns
A wedding blessing is a non-legally binding ceremony and a beautiful way to add a personal aspect to a wedding day and include your closest family and friends. Blessings are becoming increasingly popular in the UK.
For the blessing itself, our restored barn with exposed stonework and wooden beams makes a truly stunning backdrop, enhanced by your own choice of colours and décor with space for between 40 and 85 guests depending on your chosen layout.
Alternatively, as a blessing is not a legal ceremony, our grounds are the perfect location to welcome your family and friends to an alfresco style ceremony in the great outdoors.
A registrar is not required for a blessing ceremony; you may like to choose a close friend or family member to conduct your ceremony adding a beautifully personal touch to your special day. For a more structured blessing, a professional celebrant will offer advice on the structure of your ceremony and help with preparing the words of your blessing working with you to ensure that your special occasion is a success.
If you do choose to have a wedding blessing you will need to also have an official civil wedding ceremony to ensure that the legal formalities are adhered to and to obtain a legally binding marriage certificate.
We will set up the venue for your blessing, including co-ordinating some of the finishing touches provided by either yourselves or your suppliers. Your suppliers and your friends and family members will have access to the venue from 9am on the day of your wedding to add any decorations and personal touches to make the day your own.
