The Perfect Venue
Dreaming of a country wedding and an April wedding date, Stacey and Russell were looking for a romantic venue with exclusive use. Curradine Barns ticked every box!
“We were blown away by the beauty and charm of the Granary Barn and we could imagine our wedding day being beautiful there. The staff were fantastic and we loved all the different rooms that would enable the day to flow beautifully.”
Stacey and Russell
Theme of the Day
The happy couple embraced the rustic elements of the venue and its setting, choosing a dusky pink and ivory colour scheme. Simple, pretty décor included personalised wooden signage, log slices, glass jars with tealights and floral bunting.
“We also decorated with wellies filled with gypsophila! The table arrangements were beautiful ivory and pink roses arranged in milk bottles, sitting on log slices alongside jars and tealights.”
“I loved how comfortable I felt in the dress. It had a small amount of sparkle and a flattering neckline. I also had it embellished with a diamante belt.”
“He loved the design of the charcoal grey against the waistcoat with its hint of blue. His outfit looked smart with or without the suit jacket.”
The Wedding Breakfast
Following their romantic ceremony in the Granary Barn, drinks and canapés were served in the bar while a string quartet played.
Moving into the Barley Barn to dine, a fabulous barbecue included burgers, sausages, vegetarian options and an array of delicious salads. Triple chocolate brownies with ice cream was the perfect pudding.
Stacey and Russell danced their first dance to ‘Penny Lover’ by Lionel Richie and a DJ filled the dance floor. A caricature artist proved to be great entertainment for the evening party and the caricatures made excellent favours. When it came to evening dining, wood fired pizza was set to delight, alongside a tantalising sweet cart.
A Favourite Moment…
“We hired singing Waiters from Silver Service Singers. This was fantastic as only we knew about it. After the dessert, one of the singing waiters fell (on purpose) with cutlery and then began singing, getting the guests to join in and even do the conga!”
“Plan your day how you want it, not how other people do. It’s your day so enjoy it. Also take ten minutes with your partner a few times throughout the day just to stand back and observe what’s going on around you and to soak it all in.”
