Wedding flowers for The Cherry Barn, Rye, East Sussex
Updated: Oct 24, 2022
The Cherry Barn is situated near Peasmarsh on the outskirts of Rye in Sussex. It's a beautifully restored oak-frame 17th-century barn with glorious views across the apple orchards.
There are lots of lovely features which make this venue super special.
You have exclusive 48 dry-hire hour use of the barn which makes decorating it for your wedding easy and less stressful than trying to fit it all into one day. Great for your suppliers!
You also have a blank canvas to make this venue your own special place.
It's especially lovely when the apples are filling the orchard with colour. See the photo above.
Run by Melanie and Stephen, who take great care of this 400-acre farm and wedding venue, your attentive and lovely hosts will take great care of every need for your wedding.
The entrance to your wedding always needs to be very special and what better way to enter than via the bridge.
Imagine lush garlands with pops of floral colour winding through the bridge rail - the perfect spot for photos later, for you and your guests.
Here are some ideas from previous decorations from weddings for The Cherry Barn.
Some of the decorations are ours, and others are ones we have spotted and thought looked great.
We have credited photographers and suppliers where known.
This is definitely the venue for full-on Rustic with a capital R.
Most often chosen - Foliage Swags and Garlands, Wildflowers, Hanging foliage from The Wheel, Mixed vases, Wood slices, foliage runners for trestle tables, or a collection of Jars and bottles filled with dried flowers.
How about a full-on tropical wedding in Sussex - we love this fabulous creation and image by Moody Blooms.
If you would prefer alternatives to the usual - ask us for bespoke ideas specially tailored to you - we love creating new ideas.
Hoops with Birch pole Arches match the existing decorations in the barn.
Pampas and dried eucalyptus aisle decorations. Flowers by Chirpee.
If you fancy something of a statement - ask us to make free-standing designs in dried or fresh flowers for your Ceremony area, they can be moved behind or beside your Top table after the ceremony.
Pretty wild foliage runners and seasonal flower vases. Flowers by Chirpee
Why not try decorated lanterns to hang from the beams - add lanterns to your tables for a cohesive look.
Decorated hoops look great hanging from the beams or the wheel and can also be used to look like entwined rings for the gazebo for your Ceremony.
