When we set out to create Chalk Barn, we wanted to design the ultimate experience for couples from the start to finish of their Wiltshire barn wedding.
Building the barn from scratch on the site of an old cow shed enabled us to do exactly this, tailor-making a magical, modern country venue with flawless service to match the phenomenal views.
Finding the perfect Wiltshire barn wedding venue is no small task, so today we’re taking you behind the scenes of a Chalk Barn wedding. We hope it’ll inspire you to pay us a visit and experience the setting for yourselves.
Arrive in elegance
Every Chalk Barn wedding is made up of emotional moments, great and small, shared or private, and it begins from the moment you turn down the private driveway.
With total peace and exclusivity, you’ll share the journey with your nearest and dearest and perhaps a passing pheasant or two, until you arrive at the luxurious timber-clad entrance to the barn.
Surrounded by rolling rural views, the experience is magical. The perfect preparation for the big moment to come…
Walk down the aisle
Step over the stylish threshold and into the contemporary barn. If you’ve opted for an indoor ceremony, you can make your way through the bar, hidden from view, before beginning your walk down the aisle.
At the other end, the love of your life will await, with the wall-to-wall windows making the most of the stunning country view.
If you’re tying the knot in the garden, your guests will be seated on the infinity lawn while your partner waits in the romantic gazebo.
In total tranquillity, the music will start to play and carry on the breeze. It’s the most enchanting setting in which to get married.
Prepare to party!
You get the use of not one, but five purpose-designed areas for your Wiltshire barn wedding at Chalk Barn.
Let’s start with the main hall, which will be filled with perfectly styled banquet tables ready for your feast. Eat, drink and smile during your wedding breakfast and speeches, before spilling into the garden to enjoy the evening sunshine.
Get competitive with garden games on the infinity lawn. Mingle on the patio and catch up over a cocktail or two. Capture stunning photographs with uninterrupted Wiltshire countryside as your natural backdrop.
As the sun sets, it won’t take long for your guests to discover the chic terrace. In the cast iron fire pit, you can cook up tempting molten marshmallow treats over the crackling flames.
Back inside, the atmospheric bar will be buzzing. Expert mixologists will keep the drinks flowing at your Chalk Barn wedding in the most chic of surrounds. Whether you fancy a bespoke gin bar or a craft beer experience, all manner of liquid indulgences are possible here.
And for those who want to rest their dancing feet, there’s the Loft. A characterful, intimate space on the mezzanine level, your guests can relax beside the log burner. The cleverly positioned window overlooks the dance floor, so they won’t miss any of the action.
