If you’re getting married at Ever After, as well as holding your reception here, you’ve got a few options. Our wedding barn is licensed for your ceremony, providing you & your other half are stood in the barn. It doesn’t matter where your guests are seated (although we can’t have more than 70 people seated in the barn). So, here are your options…

 

Seated Inside

Have you got 70 guests or less? The two of you could stand at the back of the wedding barn and have your guests seated facing forwards. Or, have them seated facing inwards. You could even flip it around the other way and stand under the arch with guests facing outwards. With fewer guests, sometimes it’s better to keep them close together in one space. Plus, it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing because everyone will be under cover!

Seated Outside

On a gorgeous summer day, sitting outside is stunning. The two of you can stand just inside the wedding barn (under the arch) and your guests can soak up the vitamin D whilst watching you tie the knot.

Wet Weather

There, of course, always has to be a plan B for the outside option. In the event of wet weather, we usually do a ‘half and half’ situation. I.e. half your guests inside the wedding barn, half outside, but all still under cover. We have a wet weather awning which we will usually put up the day before if the forecast is bad. Whatever happens, your guests will be kept dry. I promise!

Alternative Ceremony

If you want even more free-rein with your options, you could have a non-legal ceremony. (This would mean getting ‘legally’ married before your wedding day at Ever After). For example, Penny & Pete wanted to have a semi-Jewish ceremony, but at Ever After. They got ‘married’ a few days before their actual wedding and had a celebrant (instead of a registrar) come to Ever After.

This meant they could incorporate Jewish elements (such as the chuppah and smashing of glass), plus they could write their own vows. And, (as in my last blog post) with Zoe & Ben… They had their orchard ceremony followed by a private short legal ceremony.

 

Whatever you decide to do, your wedding day will be marvellous!
