Nick and Anna’s rustic autumn barn wedding


What a feast on the eye this wedding provided at Godwick Great Barn towards the end of October. The lovely Anna and Nick booked Godwick in late spring, leaving just over six months to pull everything together (so don’t listen to all those people who say you can’t pull off a wedding in six months, of course you can!) and my word did Nick and Anna make it work with the help of our talented wedding co-ordinator Penny.

I think autumn is a beautiful time to get married at Godwick. There’s a special feel to the place as the leaves turn, the nights start to draw in and the rustic hues of the countryside and the sun sitting lower in the sky really brings the barn to life.

Nick and Anna got the rustic feel just right creating an easy going, but convivial feel with dining at trestle tables adorned with floral runners, old fashioned named enamel mugs as place holders, copper leaf trees used either side of the ceremony doorway combining beautifully with the glittering fairy lights strung across the barn to create a magical atmosphere. The flowers by local supplier Bramble and Berry were simply stunning, an abundance of wild and natural flowers using the seasons colours to a wonderful effect.

Nick, a general manager at an ad agency, and Anna, a book designer, created something special, but their guiding principles were simple:  “We wanted a down-to-earth, natural, convivial and beautiful autumnal wedding.

“Our wedding at Godwick was perfect. James, Penny and the team were fantastic, planning was made easy and the day couldn’t have been better. A stunning venue and we would thoroughly recommend. If only we could do it all again!”
