Our couples are always looking for new ideas and inspiration for styling and dressing their wedding or event.  This blog post demonstrates how to enhance a beautiful rustic barn for your special day.

Gildings Barns offers the ultimate romantic wedding venue, and a quiet and beautiful rustic setting for weddings and parties.  The interconnecting traditional oak-framed barns create an enchanting and unique atmosphere, and are ideally laid out to ensure a natural flow of guests on site. The Threshing Barn houses a collection of vintage agricultural tools and equipment, typical of those used in the era in which it was built. The restored horse-drawn farm wagons provide wonderful photo backdrops.  Gildings Barns welcomes enquiries from people looking to hold dignified and beautiful celebrations and other events, fitting for this delightful venue.

Our most popular aesthetic for Barn venue weddings is for a rustic yet luxury feel, and this can be achieved beautifully with the right lighting and props.  The images below show just some of the many options available for styling and dressing this beautiful Barn venue and will provide ideas and inspiration for other rustic Barn venues as well.Entrance drapes and vintage furniture at Gildings Barn SurreyThe beautiful courtyard at Gildings Barns dressed with our white doorway drapes, vintage-style garden furniture with parasols, ornate silver mirror with calligraphied welcome sign and barrel poseur tables.  All make for a beautiful entrance to the main event space for this pretty rustic wedding with a luxury feel.
