Twilight Weddings

If you want your big day to be that little bit different – relaxed and romantic, without the typical formalities of a traditional wedding – then a Twilight Wedding might be perfect for you.

What is a Twilight Wedding?

A Twilight Wedding is a ceremony that starts much later in the afternoon (somewhere between 4pm and 5pm) and then moves straight into the evening party, offering more informal evening food rather than a traditional sit-down wedding breakfast.  It's a great option if you want to remove the pressure of entertaining your guests for an entire day and save money by reducing food requirements.

What are the Benefits of a Twilight Wedding?

If you are a couple operating on a budget, you might want to consider a Twilight Wedding as they tend to be a cheaper option. Most simply have a drinks and canapé reception after the ceremony followed by buffet-style evening food and dancing.

It dispenses with all the formality of a full wedding day and offers the opportunity to have a shorter day and a longer evening reception, meaning more time partying!

There is also the romance of a twilight kiss to seal the knot – if you are lucky enough to have one of those fabulous winter sunsets!  Here at The Great Barn we offer Twilight Weddings during January, February and November. At this time of year sunset times vary between 4.00pm – 5.30pm so couples also make the most of the darker evenings by making sure there are plenty of fairy lights, sparklers, and enjoy our roaring fires!

A Twilight Wedding is the perfect choice for couples who are looking to get married in winter and want to create something magical. Take a look at some of our fabulous twilight photos to see how gorgeous your Twilight Wedding could be. Click here for our photo gallery and filter to Twilight.
