Welcome to The Apple Barn and Courtyard at Kent wedding venue The BarnYard

The BarnYard has been busy undertaking a new renovation to the old Farm Shop, which started just as lockdown hit and which has now been fully completed.

Welcome to The Apple Barn and CourtYard, a new and separate wedding area within the grounds of The BarnYard - perfect for Twilight wedding ceremonies and party functions.

This recently renovated and converted Apple Barn with its own integral Courtyard is simply gorgeous – strung with thousands of fairylights spanning the oak rafters inside the barn and festoon lights spanning the skyline above the Courtyard outside the barn – it will be love at first sight!

For couples who wish to have a slightly less extravagant wedding day or are on a stricter budget or just simply prefer a rustic barn venue the venue offers twilight weddings.

With the twilight weddings, you get married later in the day and go straight into an evening party. The timing of these is such that sit down meals, formal speeches, table plan layouts etc are not required and thus removes any headache these could potentially bring to the wedding couple.

The Apple Barn can host twilight wedding ceremonies for up to 100 guests with up to another 100 guests being invited in the evening (200 guests in total). You can have indoor wedding ceremonies within the barn itself or choose to have an outside wedding ceremony in the beautiful Courtyard Gazebo. Decoration is allowed earlier in the day. The in-house DJ company, Apollo Funk Entertainments (www.apollofunk. com) has fitted the barn out with state of the art DJ and lighting equipment, which is available to those who have the DJ inclusive package. The DJ decks and controls are set high above the dance floor situated within a darkened DJ booth which overlooks your guests.

The oak folding chairs match the very rustic wooden trestle tables in the barn, which can be set out inside in a variety of ways as well as outside under the festoon lit skyline for alfresco suppers!

Within the fully enclosed Courtyard sits a pretty oak gazebo for those who do prefer (weather permitting) to have an outside ceremony. There are numerous olive trees planted in terracotta pots dotted around including the grand-daddy olive tree which takes pride of place in this Courtyard. Surrounded by these and the pale orange brickwork of the old barns, you could almost believe you are in Tuscany!
