Sweet detail inspiration

It’s all in the details, or so the saying goes! Soak up some sweet detail inspiration from past weddings at Lower Barns. From beautiful bunting to sassy shoe choices – we love them all!

Naked cakes

If the thought of a traditional fruit cake is the stuff of wedding nightmares for you, pare things back with an on-trend naked cake. These chilled out bakes feature less icing and let the cake do the talking instead. Have yours decorated with beautiful, bright flowers or a smattering of delicious seasonal berries for a personal touch.

Very ‘you’ shoes

Satin white stilettos might be the typical bridal choice, but it doesn’t mean you have to go with the flow. Jazz up your bridal look and pick a pair of shoes that scream you! We love gorgeous sparkly red heels – how cute are bows? Perhaps you’re more of a Converse gal or maybe you prefer to go without! Whatever floats your boat.

Break boring bridal rules

Why stop with shoes? If white isn’t your colour, pick something brighter for your bridal wear instead. We love the matching fringe dress combination above. The clever colour coordination with the groom’s braces and bride’s hairpiece is a beautiful touch, too. If the bridal shops you peruse are full of white, ivory and blush – head elsewhere. The great thing about wearing a colourful wedding dress is you can shop anywhere – from off-the-catwalk couture to charity shops!

Floral crown

Add a touch of boho charm by way of a flower crown. This is the perfect accessory for chilled out, festival vibe gatherings and a great way to inject a little colour if you are going for an otherwise neutral ensemble.

Beautiful bunting

We love our bunting around these parts! It adds an instant splash of colour to proceedings and automatically makes everything feel a little bit more festive. Bunting works well both inside or out, so string some up whether you’re spending the majority of your wedding indoors or al fresco.


We operate a very popular Bring Your Own Booze policy here at Lower Barns – so you can ensure you have your favourite tipple on your big day. Whether you’re into daiquiris or Doom Bar, stock up and enjoy! Our policy is also great for guests, as you can cater to their taste buds too.

Vintage games

What is a wedding without a little old fashioned fun, eh? We love the vintage charm of this Hook A Duck set-up – and it certainly looks like it’s proving a hit with that little guest! Alternatively, why not try giant chess, croquet or a ring toss? Not only will it keep guests entertained, it’s always fun to find out who’s got the fiercest competitive streak!

What sweet details will you add to your day?
