Wedding Blog

25th May 2019

Sarah-Jane and Philip got married in New York last year and wanted to complete their celebrations with a festival theme wedding in Northumberland at a reception with friends and family at Barn on the Bay.

Festival Wedding Decor

They wanted a festival style vibe which was why they chose the Barn on the Bay as their venue. The farm has beach side camping, teepee glamping and beach cabin huts so everyone can stay together. The reception could be held inside the Cow Shed, with space for the band, the meal, chill out areas and the bar. The venue was decorated with fabulous bunting, wild flowers and hay bails.

Festival Wedding Blessing

The ceremony blessing took place outside in the paddock with hay bails for friends and family. Sarah-Jane and Philip’s chose a hand-fastening blessing overlooking beautiful views of the countryside beyond. The best thing about having a separate reception is that they got to wear their wedding gown and suit for a second time! Sarah-Jane wore a stunning Eliza Jane Howell gown complete with Jenny Packham Shoes and Liberty in Love accessories. Philip chose a very suave Marc Darcy suit.

Festival Wedding Music

A little rain didn’t dampen anyones spirits and in true festival style the party very quickly got started inside the Cow Shed. With the bubbles flowing the barn was filled with chatter and music from the live singer. Outside, the festival vibe continued with the fabulous Scream For Pizza van cooking more pizzas than you can imagine. The speeches where some of the funniest and heart warming speeches I have ever heard! After some tasty food a band played until the sun set. I believe it was then onto the beach to continue the celebrations.

One of the great things about the Cow Shed at Barn on the Bay is that it allows everyone to be part of the party but from different areas of the barn so the atmosphere really felt like a huge party all night. If a Festival theme isn’t your style you can put your own stamp on the venue too.

I wish Sarah-Jane and Philip lots of luck and happiness in their life together as husband and wife.
