A Garden Party Barn Dance

Situated in the grounds of the family home in Breinton, Herefordshire, Sarah and Jon wanted to create a relaxing country garden party theme for their wedding reception. The marquee was kept clean and simple for their 70 guests with rustic coir matting used as the floor covering with informal rows of trestle tables and wooden folding chairs to seat the guests for the wedding breakfast.

Bunting was suspended from the roof of the marquee along with small yet elegant chandeliers which were used for lighting as the sun began to set. The layout of this marquee complimented the theme perfectly, especially with the use of mismatched crockery. Everything together really set the theme for the day ahead.

To celebrate long into the evening, the adjoining barn to the marquee was used for a dance hall and staging area for the band to perform. We lined the roof with fairy lights as well as use LED uplighters to inject some colour into the space. Creating this area really did give a contrast to the more formal celebrations from earlier in the day and really set the scene for the merriment to follow.

Outside, the surrounding tree line and pond area was illuminated with LED flood lights for guests to enjoy as well as take a break from the dancing inside the barn. The perfect space to enjoy a celebratory drink underneath the stars and raise a toast to the happy couple.

Thank you so much for the amazing marquee and all the fantastic lighting. So many people have commented about the amazing lighting of the barn and pond. It really did make such a big difference and was beyond our expectations.
