Q – We’re having a rustic-themed wedding in a gorgeous barn. Do you have any ideas of how we can style it?
"The joy of a barn is that they are often blank canvases. You don’t have the colour of the carpet, curtains or walls to take into account, meaning you often have infinite freedom when it comes to styling. Here are some of our top styling tips:
"Create an atmosphere with lighting. We love a festoon bulb strung from a beam. Stone walls look great with up-lighters against them and candles are a clever way of creating an intimate and inviting space.
"Use height to your advantage. Barns often have high ceilings and beams on which you can attach decorations. They’re great for hanging flowers, bunting or string lights. You could use draping to create a more glamorous look or cover beams with greenery or floral garlands.
"The un-fussy nature of a barn setting lends itself perfectly to a more opulent table display, even if you want to keep the rustic theme, you can go for a more chic look by bringing in elegant features, such as cut glassware.
"If you have a large barn, create areas of interest, such as a lounge area or interactive zones."
