Q. I had my heart set on a barn venue, however, will it be a warm enough setting should the weather be chilly/snowing?

A. Vicki Lamont says: For the perfect winter wedding, look no further than a barn venue. You'll need a location with atmosphere, beauty and year-round charm, and barns have this in abundance.

Long Furlong Barn has underfloor heating and insulation – something to bear in mind when visiting prospective venues – meaning guests will be toasty whilst enjoying mulled wine or a hot chocolate with a Baileys kick.

Most barn venues offer an outdoor area with outdoor heating, furniture and a bar – what better way to enjoy a warm drink snuggled up with blankets whilst taking in the beautiful views?

At Long Furlong Barn we have a beautiful fairylit courtyard with an Open Barn which offers outdoor heating and seating for you and your guests to enjoy. The rural setting and rustic flare of a barn venue, mixed in with some winter wedding décor, makes for the ultimate romantic, cosy wedding backdrop.
