The Best Barn and Farm Wedding Venues in the North West

 

I flipping love barn and farm weddings. I sooooooo wish it had been an option when I was getting married. I’d have leapt at the chance to have such a fun and relaxed wedding venue. I’ve been lucky enough to shoot at some beautiful farm and barn weddings around the North West and I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you here.

The Wellbeing Farm – Lancashire 

I’m totally smitten with this venue. It’s unique, relaxed, surrounded by beautiful countryside and has just the right about of craziness. The venue is home to a sizeable barn which can be used for your ceremony and your wedding breakfast. With hay bales around the edge for guests to lounge on. Outside there’s gorgeous countryside backdrops, quirky spots for pictures and even a couple of resident llamas who don bow-ties for the weddings. You can check out Beckah and Luke’s colourful Wellbeing Farm wedding here.

Browsholme Hall & The Tithe Barn – Lancashire 

This is a venue of two parts! The grand manor house – Browsholme Hall standing in it’s own elegant grounds and the relaxed and rustic Tithe Barn with it’s amazing interior and lovely courtyard area. The great thing is that if you book your wedding at the Tithe Barn you can enjoy all the beautiful grounds at the Hall too as they are a stones throw away from one another. The Ribble Valley countryside is stunning and you can enjoy all the views from this venue. Catriona and Alex tied the knot here and you can see their wedding on the blog.

Owen House Wedding Barn – Cheshire 

This venue is so fun, quirky and relaxed – perfect for Cheshire couples who are looking for something a bit alternative for their big day. I love that there’s a few distinct separate areas to this venue which makes it really easy to photograph at and helps the day run smoothly. A dedicated bridal prep area – a great space with loads of light. A quirky wedding ceremony room with benches and fairy lights. A huge wedding reception room which can be decorated to your style. Beautiful grounds for guests to enjoy the sunshine and a fun barn area with straw bales which makes for amazing pictures. Rebecca and Vin chose Owen House wedding barn for their winter wedding and it was super stylish and beautiful – see it here.

Cote How – Rydal 

I’m always banging on about this venue – it’s one of my favourites in the Lake District. A beautiful setting. A house to use for bridal prep or even the ceremony if you wish and then a smashing party barn for your wedding breakfast and party. You can also hold your wedding ceremony inside or outside of the barn – weather permitting – it is the Lakes after all. What I love most about the venue is the staff who really go to town to look after you. One of my recent Cote How weddings is over on the blog here.
