"For me, Sandhole Oak Barn is the perfect venue to celebrate with friends and family! It's a beautiful blank canvas to inject with colour and personality and showcase your story together. From the delightful barn to the exquisite views and lakeside setting, you couldn't find a more memorable place to tie the knot."

The Style

"I love the idea of my day being a day to remember for everyone involved. A day to escape the norm and surround myself with colour, fun, magic, the extravagant and the eccentric! I would take inspiration from Sandhole Oak Barn's country setting and use decorations with an art deco and boho theme to give the day a touch of personality. The neutral colour scheme of the venue means you could pretty much choose any theme or style however!"

The Colour Scheme

"I love bright and vibrant colours, and I think they bring excitement while making a real statement on a wedding day. For me, coordination isn't everything and expressing the celebration of love, life and happiness is what is most important."

The Look

When it comes to the perfect dress, Gemma would opt for something a little bit different that would help create some amazing memories.

"I would definitely go alternative with my dress and break from traditions. Something short, vintage or even a non-white gown would be perfect for creating a statement."

For the bridesmaids and groomsmen, looking and feeling great is key.

"I want them to look and feel fab and I want each outfit to express who they are. I've always been a mix and match kind of girl and I want everyone's look to be unique and individual!"

The Food and Drink

To complement the fun-filled atmosphere, Gemma thinks a wedding breakfast full of comfort food would be ideal. Sandhole Oak Barn's caterers, Top Table, are on-hand to help you whip up the perfect menu to treat your guests!

"Sandhole Oak Barn's stunning, oak-beamed wedding breakfast room is filled with sunlight and comes with amazing views of the countryside, making it a relaxed setting for wining and dining. I would want my dining experience to feel like a home away from home with all my friends and family gathered around the dinner table. A nice lunch and great wine while enjoying each other's company would tick all the boxes."

The Entertainment

"Live music is a must! If I held my ceremony outdoors on the banks of the lake then acoustic music would be the ideal accompaniment. With the sun shining and the cocktails flowing afterwards, I can't think of anything better! When day turns to night, a band playing plenty of 80s pop would certainly get everyone dancing."

Sandhole Oak Barn has the perfect space to host a live band and a dance floor large enough to accommodate plenty of your nearest and dearest.
