Barn wedding venues are the hidden gems of the wedding venue world. Sometimes proudly placed on Google, sometimes tucked away where only those in the know can find them. And there are some STUNNING barn wedding venues in the UK. Being the venue geeks that we are, we have done all the leg work for you and have listed over 30 of the most magical barn wedding venues in the land via The List (our carefully curated wedding directory). Best of all, with most listings featuring imagery from our real weddings, you will get a true feel for the venue as a wedding space before narrowing down.

If so, let us give you a rundown of why these characterful buildings make the perfect place for both whispering vows and roaring parties.
5 Reasons to Consider Barn Wedding Venues
Barns are perfectly suited to wildflowers and rustic charm, although don't be fooled into thinking that's the limit. Shimmers of gold and cascading white florals can bring both opulence and glamour to the space too. Therefore, you really are spoilt for choice with how to decorate the neutral backdrop of a barn wedding venue. If you need somewhere to start, go and have a browse through the images under each barn wedding venue on The List and get pinning!
A Dream for Hanging Decor
With trailing flowers, lush foliage, atmospheric lighting, charming bunting, floaty light fabric drapes... The copious beams and ceiling detail found in most barn wedding venues welcome any and all hanging decor. In which case, you might want to also look into wedding stylists (like the wonderfully talented Devine Bride or elegant Knots & Kisses) to make this stage setting dream come true. Alternatively, your venue may have already thought this through with statement chandeliers lining the perfectly symmetrical, photographic ceiling. No extra decor required.
Charming and Functional
Our favourite barn wedding venues have either been built or refurbished with weddings in mind. As a result, you have the character of a barn conversion, along with the comfort of a luxury wedding venue. Including the best quality lighting, sound systems and facilities to really get everyone dancing up a storm by nightfall. Or you could also seriously up the atmospheric ante with decor hire from Not Your Average I Do.
Barn wedding venues often conjure up the visual of rolling hills, manicured gardens, stables and scenic courtyards. While browsing through The List you'll see that all of the barns are equally as beautiful on the outside as they are indoors. All designed for catching the golden light in beautiful grounds for that frame-worthy photo of you and your love.
More often than not, barn wedding venues are set in the world-famous British countryside. By hosting your wedding in a barn, you have the chance to peel everyone away from the busyness of everyday life, creating a romantic escape for both you and your guests. This gives you the opportunity to create a day, or a weekend that will stick in everyone's minds for a lifetime.
