Recently we had the absolute pleasure of being part of a styled shoot for a new Hampshire wedding venue – The Barn at Avington. As their preferred glamping supplier we cannot wait to tell you more about the venues vibe, style and more about the incredibly talented suppliers they are working with to create weddings that ROCK…
The Barn at Avington is a relaxed and friendly venue, offering a 5* luxury service.
Situated on a working farm near to Winchester, Hampshire it offers a peaceful location. Surrounded by acres of farmland you can stroll through the venue and find deer relaxing in “The Glade” – the secret glamping site. They have transformed the barn into a very chic airy space, a perfect blank canvas to create your own style.
The hampshire venue has such a laid-back feel. And with a limited number of weddings a year the most unique offering is that you can spend a full week at the barn beforehand setting up – giving you time to relax and create the vibe that you want. With our luxury glamping village on site your friends and family can make a long weekend creating more opportunities for fabulous memories. Plus, that much needed recovery time from dancing and laughing the night away!
The venue has a wonderful wedding planner Beth A Weddings who will coordinate the entire day for you. Beth has featured on the well-known wedding blogs Whimsical Wonderland Weddings and Bride and Tonic and says:
“I am for the couples who want to do things their way, I am the wedding planner who loves style, originality and fun (and hates chair covers, uncomfortable dresses you can’t dance in and a generic DJ.) I am the wedding coordinator who will make sure everything runs to schedule, can be found at the top of the highest ladder and promises that everything will look, feel, smell, sound and taste exactly how you dreamt it would. I am the late night crafter, surrounded by material, ribbon, unfinished personal projects and almost finished decorations for the bride who just couldn’t find the decorations she had in her mind”
Beth’s unique approach to wedding planning suits this venue to a T.
Within the wedding package you can select to use the Barn for your ceremony and for guest accommodation, The Cottages and The Glade. Not far from The Glade, is an idyllic stretch of land that offers the perfect space for a hidden glamping village.
Not only are bell tents luxurious they are also an affordable accommodation option, to top that off a glamping village means the bridal party remain together for the length of the celebration AND some, meaning the party needn’t stop! You can all wake up the next day together for a recovery day.
Our Gold furnished bell tents include:
To us those finishing special touches are the name of the game. Options such as heart shaped chalk boards to ensure each guest knows which tent is theirs, colour theming tents including flowers and bunting, internal & external lighting plus festoon lighting around the bell village. And a little pot of jelly beans for that much needed sugar hit post partying!
Glamping is the perfect way to create a festival style boho wedding. Check out what our previous bride and grooms say about glamping at their wedding here.
