Wedding Entertainment Ideas for a Barn Wedding

With fabulous indoor spaces and glorious gardens, the options for wedding entertainment throughout the year are endless at Mythe Barn. If you’re in the midst of planning your barn wedding, we hope these wedding entertainment ideas will offer a little inspiration.

Music Maestro

Music can be a key element of your day, playing as you walk down the aisle, delighting your guests during the drinks reception and filling the dance floor in the evening. Think about the style of music you would like and whether you’re going to opt for a playlist and DJ or include live music as part of your celebrations. You might, for example, have an acoustic guitarist for your ceremony in the Oak Barn, or a full live band to get the party started in the evening.

On the Lawn

Spring and summer months give you the perfect opportunity to make the most of our beautiful gardens. Garden games are a must, from croquet to giant Jenga or even a spot of archery.

Consider your food and drinks as an element of entertainment too – there’s nothing we love more than a colourful cocktail or gin bar from the talented team at Galloping Gourmet. As you sit for the wedding breakfast, why not surprise your guests with singing waiters and treat them to an exceptional dining experience?

Evening Delights

As day turns to evening, music comes in to its own and your dance floor fills. For a festival themed wedding, or if you like a bit of glitz and glam, a glitter bar could provide extra sparkle to your day.

Guests who step away from the dance floor may like raising the stakes at a casino table or enjoy being mesmerised by a talented close-up magician.

Our delicious evening food options are always visually entertaining. From wood-fired pizza to interactive food stations, they’re not just a treat for the eyes but treat for the taste buds too!

For Younger Guests

If you’re inviting children to share your special day, plan some entertainment for them. You might set up a craft corner with art materials or arrange a special activity pack to entertain them during the wedding breakfast. Of course, they will also be delighted by magicians and other talented performers as well as garden games, bubbles and a kid-friendly menu.
