How Much Does a Barn Wedding Venue Cost?
Like all wedding venues, the cost of a barn wedding venue can vary greatly depending on a number of different factors. Simon Steel, Managing Director of Bredenbury Court Barns and Dodford Manor Barns offers some insight: "When asked how much does it typically costs to host your wedding in a barn venue, there are two main wedding couple requirements to understand first.
"How many guests would the couple like to attend their wedding day and how many extra evening guests will join later? This enables parameters for a couple’s wedding catering costs to be scoped for the couple’s main wedding celebration meal (aka wedding breakfast) and later evening ‘street food’ style feast.
"Are the couple seeking a weekday or weekend wedding day? The trend to get married on a weekday was already growing pre-pandemic and now just as many, if not more, wedding couples are now seeking weekday weddings, as there is greater work place flexibility and understanding and decreased costs."
Sally Charlesworth, owner of Grange Barn, says: "The cost of hiring a barn wedding venue hugely varies depending on what type of venue you choose and what your venue chooses to include in their venue hire cost.
"For Grange Barn, venue hire ranges between £6,200 and £7,500 for 2024. We include a lot in our venue hire price, such as accommodation for x2 nights."
Why Do Couples Choose to Get Married in Barn Wedding Venues?
In our Hitched National Wedding Survey, a fifth of all surveyed couples had opted to say 'I do' in a barn wedding venue. But what is it about barns that draws couples in?
Sally suggests: "A barn wedding venue offers you a really relaxed setting, perfect for couples looking for a more chilled out and less formal day. Barn venues usually offer couples more flexibility and often have a more personal approach to your wedding day."
Simon has some more ideas: "Barn wedding venues have a more informal feel and are often closely connected with nature and rural surroundings. The element of informality is increasingly sought by couples as we as a society shift to a more ‘casual approach’ to previously formal occasions.
"With everyone increasingly busy in life, the proximity of barn wedding venues to countryside surroundings appeals to wedding couples seeking out their dream wedding venue.
"Barns are quite often also quite ‘unstyled’ with exposed walls, vaulted ceilings leaving a blank canvas that only needs light touches of decoration to have big effect! The simple layouts also enable everyone to celebrate together rather than be divided into separate rooms and outdoor areas."
