Long Furlong Barn provides a beautiful rustic setting for weddings with is expansive views of the Sussex countryside and original 19th century features. However if you wish to add a few extra touches to personalise the venue we would highly recommend local venue stylists To Have & To Have and Hire Your Day.
Having styled our Sussex venue for countless events Sara from To Have & To Hire Events and Amanda from Hire Your Day are very well practised in transforming the barn to fulfil a clients wishes. They are able to draw from the style of the wedding venue and the colour theme for the wedding to create initial ideas and they then work through the day from ceremony to reception in order to cover every aspect of the venue styling.
Here is a selection of some of the lovely décor our stylists can provide…
One of the most popular styles of décor Sara and Amanda’s companies provide at Long Furlong Barn is ceiling décor.
This can range from chiffon drapes and coloured paper lanterns strung on fairy lights to origami snowflakes and suspended pom poms.
At the barn couples have candles in rustic carved jars, wooden Mr and Mrs signs and quirky plaques to fill window sills and alcoves.
They have a nac of creating stunning table centre pieces out of just about anything!
Couples can choose from hurricane vases, vintage books, lucky horse shoes, ribbons and pearls, crystal tea light holders, rustic log slices or a combination of everything. They even offer vintage tea sets which make for a delightful afternoon tea.
They have transformed our ceremony room with chiffon draping entwined around the wooden beams and similar chiffon sashes can be draped around chairs.
We have also had isle runners down the central isle as well as Mr & Mrs floor decals which were attached to the glass floor that displays the original grain pit beneath the ceremony room.
For outdoor spaces such as our courtyard, Sara and Amanda can both provide sweet carts, hay bail sofas and festoon lights to name just a few options.
Our venue stylists add a personal touch to all their décor and have come up with some very creative styles of guest books such as their key tag tree. This holds a key and tag for each guest to write a message on and hang on the tree. The tags can then be put in a guest book and Sara and Amanda have even suggested reading one message each month after the wedding.
They have also created guest card holders from vintage post boxes and table plans on antiqued mirror frames. It is these extra touches that personalise a wedding and make the venue unique to each and every couple.
