FARM weddings are a growing trend in 2019. According to research by John Lewis, the number of ceremonies held in barns or on farms has doubled in five years, accounting for one in eight weddings, compared to one in 15 in 2014.

Here's five Scottish farm-themed wedding venues:

The Tattie Barn at Cambo Estate, Kingsbarns, St Andrews, Fife

For most of the year, the Tattie Barn is a working agricultural potato shed but from June until the end of August it transforms into a rustic venue available for hire. It scrubs up well. Decorative features include a vintage Massey Ferguson tractor with a trailer used as a stage for the band.


The Byre At Inchyra, Glencarse, Perthshire

Set in 150 acres of private parkland, the Byre At Inchyra has oodles of space for a ceremony and reception. The venue is packed with thoughtful attention to detail, from old cattle troughs that can be filled with floating candles and flowerheads to the option of creating your own enchanted forest.


Harelaw Farm, Fenwick, Ayrshire

The beautiful 18th-century buildings include the Wedding Byre, with its exposed stone walls and original wooden beams, that can seat up to 160 people. The larger Hay Barn has space for 250 guests complete with stage, dancefloor and light canopy as well as the adjacent "Sow's Ear" bar.


Comrie Croft, Crieff, Perthshire

Laidback and informal is the vibe at this pretty DIY wedding venue. Facilities include a farmhouse and steading (sleeping up to 74), use of the cow shed, barn and a courtyard with two fire pits, barbecue and picnic benches. It is BYOB – so no corkage charges.


Bogbain Farm, Inverness

The homespun charm of Bogbain Farm is hard to beat: admire vintage farm machinery, drink cocktails out of jam jars, dine on a hog roast, get married under a canopy of fairy lights and party on hay bales.
