A NEW UNIQUE COUNTRY WEDDING BARN FULL OF HISTORY & STYLE
Almonry Barn is a brand new wedding venue, and officially opened its doors on 21 December 2012 for viewings and began to take bookings for weddings from April 2013 onwards.
The venue is unlike any other wedding barn as not only does it still retain plenty of historical soul and a picturesque setting, but it also offers a super stylish twist, rustic elegance and quirky vintage design throughout. - Perfect for the style conscious couple.
Almonry Barn is a Scheduled Ancient Monument (the same historical league as the Tower of London) and has been standing for over 800 years. The barn was once part of a beautiful abbey - the ruins of which still stand opposite - and was used by the monks to give alms to passing travellers and pilgrims.
Receptions will take place in the main historic barn – which can comfortably seat 100 guests. In addition there is lovely chic bar area in the original adjoining stable block. The barn is perfectly situated for guests to take welcome drinks on to the outside terrace overlooking the tranquil stream and the Somerset levels, or to have a wander around the apple orchard enjoying views of the abbey and church.
The barn offers two areas in the actual barn for civil partnerships, blessings and vow renewals. The main ceremony area is upstairs in the hayloft and is brimming with personality. The hayloft is full of exposed beams, original stone work and medieval hexes (originally created to ward off evil spirits). A great talking point for guests.
There will only ever be a maximum of 60 weddings a year, making Almonry Barn very exclusive and personal. The venue doesn’t believe in 'conveyor belt weddings' and want to make sure every couple’s day is individual and completely tailored to their needs and requirements.
As well as all the traditional touches, on offer are the services of an in house wedding co-ordinator and stylist - Louise. Louise specialises in wedding styling and she will be on hand to offer advice and help couples create a day that will truly LOOK amazing and like its right out of a wedding magazine.
Unlike most other venues, included in the hire cost is a basic styling package. This includes use of the in house props such as; antique French mirrors, Conran candlesticks, pretty cushions, vintage birdcages, hanging country hearts, Doris the vintage bike and French style lanterns with a vast supply of candles. In addition couples will also have a selection of other styling delights if they so desire.
Almonry Barn truly believes in being flexible and in helping to create a most perfect wedding day that each and every couple deserve.
