Ideas for theming a farmhouse wedding venue


The beauty of a farmhouse wedding venue is you get the combined wow factor of a historic countryside setting with laid back charm.

With a farmhouse wedding venue, you’re not restricted in the same way you might be with a hotel or stately home. You don’t need to worry about matching their styling, or your hand-crafted décor looking out of place. There are no members of the public getting in the way.

It’s just you, your guests, and the great outdoors! There might be a few chickens and ducks milling about – but they add to the festivities.

Themes for a farmhouse wedding venue

When it comes to styling a farmhouse wedding venue, most themes sit comfortably against the relaxed country backdrop. You can go as luxurious or understated as you like.

Lineham Farm is a completely black canvas wedding venue, meaning the couples who get married here design their perfect wedding around what they love. Our beautiful farmhouse and 120 acres of land are the base of their weekend long celebrations, and they use them how they want to.

We see all sorts of creative and memorable wedding themes from the couples who get married here. See some of the ideas we think work excellently for a farmhouse venue.

Colourful and rustic

The natural tones of a farmhouse wedding venue make it the perfect setting for pops of bright, colourful décor. Colour is great for complimenting rustic surroundings. Décor like wreaths, lanterns and bunting provide contemporary style with a rural twist.



Emily and Jamie’s wedding at Lineham Farm (shot by Ryan Learoyd at Shutter Go Click Photography) was the perfect balance of colour, fun and rustic charm. From the bright bunting to the hanging paper lanterns and jars of wildflowers, the details tied everything together.

We love how they dressed up the climbing wall barn with lighting and a fabric backdrop to elevate the space for the evening.

Woodland wedding

What could be more magical than getting married under a canopy of rustling trees? Woodland is a meaningful and atmospheric setting for your ceremony. The natural world is a theme you can carry through the whole wedding, from the invites and flowers to the table settings and favours. It’s an opportunity to salvage, craft and source sustainable décor.

Country garden

The beauty of an English country garden goes hand in hand with a romantic wedding ceremony. Use the flowers, birds and bees as your inspiration and create an elegant theme for your wedding. Lawn games and an alfresco drinks reception are a welcome addition in the warmer months.





Barn wedding 

A barn wedding invites everyone to take a big breath of country air and get stuck in. With stone walls, wooden beams and natural light as the backdrop, a barn wedding can be whatever you want it to be. Serve a banquet, have a Cèilidh, style it up, or keep it cosy and intimate.




Fabulous festival

Marquee weddings allow you to create the perfect balance of indoor and outdoor celebrations and help you prepare for every eventuality weather wise. Create a festival feel at your wedding with live music, food trucks, drinks stalls and fire pits when the sun goes down.

The beauty of a festival wedding at Lineham Farm is you have the barn, farmhouse, camping pitches and indoor accommodation for 50 guests for the whole weekend.






Traditional charm

With a historic farmhouse wedding venue, traditional charm comes naturally. Delicate whites, florals, paper confetti and a spectacular wedding cake complete the aesthetic. The rolling country hills make the perfect backdrop to any traditional wedding celebration.

Cosy and seasonal

While weddings are more common in the warmer months, there is something magical about a cosy autumn or winter celebration. With rustic decoration and beautiful crisp surroundings, a seasonal wedding is about bringing people together for good times, food, and celebration in a cosy setting.

The sitting room at Lineham Farm is the perfect spot for an intimate ceremony or cosy drinks reception. The roaring fire, wooden beams, comfy sofas and spiral staircase create a warming atmosphere that invites you inside.


Your unique style

You might not have a theme in mind, or maybe it’s something out of the ordinary? Are you animal lovers? Foodies? Globetrotters? Music obsessed? Maybe you prefer the simple life. Your wedding is a celebration of the passions and personalities of you and your partner, and your lives together.

There are so many creative ways to bring your personal style and the things you care about into your wedding day, ranging from the subtle to the sublime. But when you choose a blank canvas wedding venue, you have the freedom to set the tone exactly as you want it. Away from the confines of a package wedding, you focus on the elements that matter most to you and your partner.
