A rainbow inspired Christmas wedding at the Barn at Avington

Do you LOVE Christmas so much that having a Christmas wedding would be a dream come true? And how about combining that with a rainbow theme and a festival vibe? If this sounds like a winning idea to you, then here’s a little bit of Christmas wedding inspiration for you. Although be warned, you may need your sunglasses!

Unlike many other rural wedding barn venues in Hampshire which are typically old and rustic, The Barn at Avington is a new industrial barn, offering a clean bright space for you to style in any way you like. There’s also a lot of outdoor space, including an outdoor ceremony area and a glamping site, as well as 5 star accommodation for up to 12 people. With a blank canvas like that, I was extremely excited to hear about the transformation The Barn’s wedding stylist and coordinator, Beth Allen, had in mind for our styled shoot in early September, and she certainly took me by surprise as she had planned an on-trend rainbow-inspired Christmas wedding shoot!

Along with a friendly band of local wedding suppliers we put together a colourful set, which I am delightedly proud to say has just been featured on the Mr & Mrs Unique blog – a blog which celebrates colourful, quirky and creative weddings.

Here are just a few of my favourite shots from the wedding shoot.

For added inspiration and to find out all about how the shoot came together, click here to read our featured blog post on Unique Rebels Union.

So, what do you think? Will you be embracing this rainbow Christmas trend?

A MASSIVE thank you to all the wedding suppliers who were an amazing team to work with, as well as our 2 models.
