In this blog post, we show you some of Stressfree | The Venue Transformers’ beautiful work, styling and dressing weddings at Gildings Barns, a rustic wedding barn available for exclusive weekend hire in the beautiful Surrey countryside.

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.

Festoons with paper lanterns adorn the ceiling space and complement the venue’s own fairy light decorations, pinspots to the tables highlight the stunning arrangements provided by Nordic Twigs, and uplighters provide warmth to the walls and overall ambience.  Cut birch trees with pealights bring the outside inside and work beautifully alongside the vertical beam decorations provided by Nordic Twigs.  Photo credits Harriet Bird Photography
