In the last few years, the popularity of barn wedding venues has really taken off, with many engaged couples falling for the rustic, intimate feel of barns and their surrounding grounds.
In Colchester, you will find an excellent barn wedding venue in the form of Barn Brasserie Great Tey. This exclusive use venue ensures that your special day is a private and uninterrupted affair, with a built-in sense of exclusivity. Another plus point is that Barn Brasserie also boasts a shiny wedding license, which means you are able to host both your civil ceremony and post-wedding celebrations here.
Barn Brasserie has been planning and executing all manner of weddings for over 20 years now, so it is safe to say that it is an expert in its field (pardon the pun). The barn itself is far older however, having being first built in the 16th century and today a grade-II listed timber building, which is also one of the largest thatched barns in the whole of England.
One of Barn Brasserie’s unique selling points is that the venue does not charge couples an additional hire fee, which is something that many similar venues do charge. Barn Brasserie is also refreshingly versatile in its approach to planning big days, and is able to accommodate for standing receptions with Champagne and canapés all the way through to formal sit-down dinners followed by an evening of music and dancing. There is even the option to forgo your traditional wedding breakfast and instead enjoy a spot of afternoon tea on your big day.
The barn is full of character thanks to original wooden beams, a split-level seating arrangement and soft lighting. You can decorate the barn however you want and whatever theme or accents you choose, there’s no denying that Brasserie Barn provides a rustic and romantic back drop for wedding photographs, or even your guests own snaps.
