Janette and Joshua’s Relaxed Winter Wedding at Clock Barn

Janette and Joshua's real winter wedding at Clock Barn in Hampshire

Janette and Joshua were searching for the perfect venue that would provide a stunning rustic setting as well as the most amazing wedding food and drink. When they set eyes on Clock Barn at the end of its long drive through rolling fields, they knew it was the one for them.

“We were looking for an amazing barn which we most definitely got!” smiles Janette. “We fell in love everywhere!”

Setting the theme

To make their winter wedding a joy for all their guests, the happy couple created a relaxing and homely atmosphere under the exposed beams and vaulted ceiling of the barn. With the help of The Blooming Workshop Janette and Joshua added floral centrepieces to each table as well as small jars of flowers dotted around the barn. The couple made their own chalkboard table names and their fabulous vintage map table plan which matched the theme perfectly. The cosy and inviting feel kept the cold away perfectly!

To celebrate Janette’s Chinese culture, the couple first held a tea ceremony to signify entering a new chapter of life. The beautiful bride then changed from her intricately-detailed red dress into a delicate white gown to exchange vows in the characterful barn.

Food and drink

Incredible wedding food and drink was high on Janette and Joshua’s list and our talented team of caterers at Clock Barn did not disappoint. After tying the knot, the couple celebrated with white peach sangria and ‘cosmo not’ mocktails served with an array of mouth-watering canapés. Wild mushroom tarts, deep-fried Somerset Brie and crispy pork belly went down a real treat with their guests.
