When it came to finding the perfect venue for their special day, Kim and Lewis were looking for a beautiful country setting that would provide plenty of space for all their loved ones. When they saw Clock Barn, a charming barn wedding venue in Hampshire, they knew it was the place for them.
“We instantly fell in love with the warm and cosy barn feel of Clock Barn. We loved the long drive down to the venue, it made us feel so far away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. It was a little piece of heaven just for us and our friends and family.” – Kim
To complement the stunning natural beauty of the barn, the happy couple opted for a décor theme of country and shabby chic, with a personal twist to put their own stamp on the place. Many of the decorations were lovingly made by Kim and her mum, including all the table decorations, a seating plan and stationery. They even took care of all the floral arrangements themselves too.
“We picked up all of the flowers from the local supermarket! Gypsophila gave that wonderful country feel while other flowers in pastel shades made the place feel warm and summery.” – Kim
After tying the knot in the breathtaking barn, Kim and Lewis took to the gardens to share drinks and canapés with their nearest and dearest. When it came to the wedding breakfast, the couple started their menu with confit pork and apple spring rolls, grilled rib-eye steak for the main course and a delightful trio of desserts, which featured a decadent brownie, sharp lemon tart and buttery shortbread served with raspberries.

When it came to the evening reception, the sweet treats were in abundance. Kim and Lewis organised a popcorn machine and sweet table and held a ‘wedding bake off’. Lots of their guests brought different cakes so there was plenty of choice for all to enjoy.
The Galloping Gourmet Events Team at Clock Barn pride themselves on helping couples create their perfect wedding day and this was certainly the case for Kim and Lewis. The team were there for them from their very first visit right through until the end of their wedding day, and were a constant source of help and reassurance.
“The Galloping Gourmet team were amazing. They answered all of our questions and made everything so easy. We could just relax and enjoy everything!” – Kim
