Enjoy the summer sun

Picture perfect

Summer is a very popular season for Bassmead Manor Barns brides and grooms, not least because the venue is the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor beauty. There are lots of wedding ideas for summer. If the weather is wonderful, you can enjoy the splendour of the gardens and the surrounding fields – many of our most romantic couples photos are shot against the backdrop of the golden wheat fields.

Al fresco drinks and canapés

Summer is the ideal time of year to enjoy a relaxed outdoor wedding reception. Picture you and your guests celebrating with champagne and canapés in the afternoon sun. And when night falls, the gardens are beautifully lit up. Bridge Barn opens directly onto the patio and gardens, meaning that your guests can truly enjoy the best of both worlds. Keep an eye out for the resident peacocks!

Delicious summer foods

Our fantastic luxury wedding caterers, Galloping Gourmet, can create incredible dishes for any season, but for summer, we recommend their delicious barbecue, cooked outside on a real fire burner. Pair juicy meats with fresh, flavourful salads, and finish with classic British desserts such as Eton mess for a wedding breakfast that everyone will love.

A private breakfast

After your wedding night at Dove Cottage bridal suite, you can enjoy your own private continental breakfast as a married couple on a sunlit, east-facing patio. It’ll get your married life off to a wonderful start!
