Morning, how is it Monday again?? At least the crazy rain has finally stopped, can we have summer back now please? Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when we went to stay at the lovely Blue Door Barns? The boutique B&B with beams, barn stars and a to die for breakfast? Well there’s a post on that coming soon but for now I’d love to tell you about Blue Door Barns Events, the sister company who create the most incredible weddings. From dreamy venues set in the best British countryside to tying up the little details with a quirky charm, they can do it all with bells {or bunting!} on.

So in short, there isn’t much that the team can’t do. Recently they’ve even built an outdoor tandoor oven to create an authentic Indian dining experience for 200, created a pop up Brazilian rum bar complete with bespoke cocktails, dressed a venue with over 1000 outdoor candles in trees and created a boho-chic style camp site for a festival wedding. How incredible!

There are four beautiful venues to choose from, and quite frankly I think it would be impossible to choose between them all!! 

Beanstalk Country – For couples looking for a relaxed style of wedding amongst the glorious English countryside. You’ll love the prettiness of the unique Beanstalk Country Gardens and Paddocks. There is use of all grounds including an Indian tea tent, Dolly the caravan, paddocks and there is the option for guests to camp {or glamp!}.

Firle Place is nestled at the foot of the South Downs in a charming village. The Private Gardens are perfect for couples looking for an elegant, showstopper of a venue which will wow guests but still with the originality associated with Blue Door Barns Events Weddings. Celebrations start in a beautiful, private walled garden complete with a 16th century thatched dairy cottage for reception drinks. Majestic stone steps or a daisy-strewn wild orchid walkways lead to The South Lawns – a totally private space overlooked by the South Downs. For guests wanting a church wedding, Firle Church is situated next door with a gate leading directly into Firle Place. There is capacity for 200 guests.

– Glynde Place – Perfect for couples looking for old school glamour with the wedding ceremony and reception all in one location. Glynde Place is an Elizabethan stately home set in acres of rolling private parkland overlooking the South Downs.  The ceremony would take place in The Gallery, a large grand room with wood panelled walls with enormous shuttered windows framing the beautiful views. After the ceremony, guests move downstairs into the Long Hall and can spill out onto a gravel terrace and then later into the marquee in the parkland.
