Real Winter Wedding Experiences

Nicola and Daniel were on the lookout for a rustic barn with a contemporary, elegant edge… and Bassmead Manor Barns had just that! “We also loved the moat running around the barn,” says Nicola. “It made it feel extra-special and really different to other venues we visited.”

This couple chose a theme to bring the outside in for their winter wedding. The colour scheme was lush greenery with blush pink, cream and hints of gold.



“Our wedding was towards the end of November. With winter just setting in, we wanted to keep the colours muted but add a little glamour.”


A fabulous floral arch of foliage including eucalyptus and rosemary with white and cream roses, hydrangeas and anemones decorated the Rickety Barn and was then brought through to the Moat Barn with a ‘Mr and Mrs Lewis’ sign as a great photo backdrop.

In the evening, a live four-piece band filled the dance floor. Bassmead’s outdoor wood-fired pizza oven provided some tasty treats, with guests dancing, drinking and eating slices of pizza until the last song of the night.

Nicola reflects, “Remember this day is all about you and your groom so make sure to spend as much of the day together. I told Daniel that this was important to me before the wedding day and he remembered and never left my side all day… all of my memories from the wedding include my wonderful new husband, which is amazing!”
