Comments from Paul Martin:
Lains Barn is a magnificent historic barn in a beautiful rural setting near to the historic town of Wantage, Oxfordshire. As well as the majestic hall and gallery, the huge barn doors lead to a lawn area which is perfect for a barbecue. Lains Barn provides an ideal setting for your marriage ceremony, wedding reception and evening celebration.

Lains Barn commands fine views across the Vale of the White Horse, and the main Barn and gallery can hold up to 200 people. In addition there is a glazed and heated cow byre, kitchen, toilets, lighting, heating, space for a bar and plentiful electric sockets. Lains Barn is run by the Vale and Downland Museum, Wantage. Any surplus arising from the hiring fees after covering costs is used to fund improvements at Lains Barn and the Museum.

I enjoyed photographing a wedding at this tastefully restored barn, which conveys a cosy atmosphere. The setting has a distinctly rural feel; the lawns, wooden fences, and suurounding trees provides an idylic backdrop for creative portraiture. Lains Barn is a truly unique venue for wedding photography, and one which I highly recommend.
