10 of the Best Barn Wedding Venues in Somerset & Wiltshire

Somerset rustic barn wedding

Are you looking for the perfect barn wedding venue?

In need of some barnspiration? Then look no further!

In my opinion, Somerset & Wiltshire offer some of the best choices in the south of England for barn wedding venues. As a Wiltshire & Somerset Wedding Photographer, I’ve been fortunate to photograph many beautiful barn weddings throughout the south west.

Why a barn wedding? There are many reasons why a barn venue could suit your wedding and celebrations; such as versatility, rural locations and a DIY friendly approach. With options of organising your own catering with food trucks, to on site glamping and partying into the early hours! You really can put your own stamp on it. If it’s a Summer wedding you’re planning, a barn venue often leans well to indoor and outdoor options for ceremonies and even receptions, too.

For rustic charm, rural beauty and creating a laid back atmosphere; here’s my top picks for a barn wedding in these wonderful counties…

Chalk Barn

Situated in Pewsey, the wonderful Chalk Barn offers 360 degree views over the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. The barn was purpose built as an entertainment venue and is fully sustainable to run, pretty cool eh? This has to be one of my favourite Wiltshire wedding venues to photograph at. Your outdoor ceremony will be set against the rolling Wiltshire hills. The stylish Barn creates a beautiful setting for evening celebrations where you can party late into the night, there’s no one around!
