Chalk Barn is a Wiltshire barn wedding venue that compliments every colour palette – from bright and bold to soft and warm. Our blank canvas venue allows our couples the opportunity to truly tell their story and make their wedding day their own.

In this blog, we’re putting the spotlight on a wedding from the autumn of 2022. This newlywed couple carefully considered every element of their Wiltshire wedding day to ensure their vision of a minimalist and neutral wedding came to fruition. Read on for all the gorgeous and timeless details from their wedding. 

The Ceremony

Opting for an outdoor ceremony, G&J were able to take full advantage of the surrounding countryside and could opt for simple draping and an understated foliage arrangement by Ammi Flowers to decorate the gazebo for their ceremony. The minimalist decor honours the endless landscape at Chalk Barn and compliments the neutral colours of the barn.

The Cake

Lovingly made by the Groom’s mother, this stunning 4-tiered wedding cake was a triumph. Featuring an oversized dried floral arrangement and placed carefully upon a rustic log slice supplied by Chalk Barn, this minimalist wedding cake was the perfect blend of nature and contemporary design.

For the cake lovers amongst us, the cake tasted as good as it looked, with each tier a different flavour. With something to suit every taste, the tiers were chocolate, lemon and elderflower, carrot and white chocolate and raspberry.

The Table Decor

For their barn wedding at Chalk Barn, G&J opted for rustic trestle tables which were left uncovered by a tablecloth for a more contemporary and natural aesthetic. Using glamorous candelabra to draw the eyes upwards, the couple kept the rest of their tabletop decor to a minimum with simple foliage.

For place settings the newlyweds had copper-toned charger plates to match the candelabras, crisp white napkins and romantic name cards complete with a personalised wax stamp.

The Signage

This newlyweds natural and neutral theme carried through to every element of their wedding, including their signage. While their welcome sign was in a stunning pink shade to make more of a statement and set the tone of the wedding, the rest of their signage remained minimalist with white boards, clean and simple fonts and considerate placement.

The Photographer

Stuart Dudleston is a regular choice for couples at Chalk Barn wedding venue and is a natural at beautifully capturing our Wiltshire wedding venue. The earthy and golden edit of the images again align with the neutral aesthetic of G&J’s day. With the gorgeous landscape of Chalk Barn to roam and explore, Stuart has been able to harness the sunlight to make the most of this photo opportunity, and the freedom to move has allowed for relaxed and natural moments from the bride and groom.
