Chaucer Barn Wedding 

As an award-winning Norfolk Wedding Planner working the East of England, I can honestly say I adore planning and styling beautifully relaxed country weddings at Chaucer Barn in Norfolk.

In case you haven’t stumbled upon this beautiful dry-hire wedding venue before, it’s the perfect space to create a truly personal celebration, especially if you’re looking to host a beautiful wedding garden party!

Today, I want to share R&D’s stunning tipi weekend wedding with you, photographed by the wonderful Joshua Patrick Photography.

The Wedding Ceremony

As R&D had booked Chaucer Barn for an extended weekend wedding, they had a relaxed evening al fresco meal with their loved ones the evening before the wedding. As a small wedding venue in Norfolk, this gorgeous venue also caters for much larger celebrations, so really is the best of both worlds!

On the wedding day, they welcomed guests with a range of beautiful drinks and a stunning grazing table full of delicious treats!

Guests then made their way to the woodland area for a beautifully intimate wedding ceremony with the wonderful Kavolini string quartet providing the music.

After the ceremony, R&D treated their guests to a range of beautiful cocktails and lawn games with a garden party celebration.

A Tipi wedding feast!

Next, the guests headed to a beautiful tipi set up in the grounds of Chaucer Barn. When planning a wedding or garden party in Norfolk, I love using these beautifully versatile structures to help create a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. Don’t worry though, if tipi’s aren’t the right choice for you, there are plenty of different marquee types for weddings available.

Guests enjoyed a sharing platter feast followed by a delicious cake.

Decor was relaxed and rustic, celebrating the English garden party surroundings of Chaucer Barn. As a wedding planner and stylist, I love designing spaces that work in harmony with their surroundings. Freshly picked flowers in vintage bottles looked beautiful on the wooden rustic tables.

The Evening Celebration

After the wedding breakfast, guests made their way to the main barn for a night of dancing and partying! 

With a full glamping village on-site, guests didn’t have very far to wander when the festivities ended.
