The last few years have seen a huge increase in rustic barn styled weddings. There are some incredible barn venues now operating across the country, or if you're really brave perhaps you're going for a dry-hire barn and doing the full operation yourself!
Regardless of how you're planning it, having a barn wedding means you've chosen a certain aesthetic and theme to the style of your wedding which can make some decisions so much simpler!
For example: as it's a rustic wedding, you may think wildflowers would be better suited to your wedding than formal bouquets. Similarly, rustic wedding cakes with partially iced or nude finishes really compliment the style too.
So with this in mind, we've collated 5 of our TOP picks for rustic wedding entertainment that'll be cherry on top to your perfectly authentic barn wedding!
If you're looking for some light entertainment during your drinks reception or wedding breakfast, than an acoustic singer/guitarist is just the thing!
Stephen is the perfect choice with his soulful & unique voice to accent your boho wedding. Performing acoustic folk, rock, pop and soul - he takes your favourite tunes and makes them entirely his own. We can highly recommend him!

There's no better way to finish off the happiest day of your life than dancing the night away to an amazing party band. When it comes to wedding bands - we have a HUGE selection of outstanding choices, but Jack Five are today's awesome recommendation.
What we love about Jack Five is that they offer two different styles of music - their folky or "Mumford & Sons" style, sees them switch up the standard electric instruments for their acoustic counterparts. You could either choose your preferred style for the whole evening or split the sets! We recommend acoustic/folk for the first set to get your guests up on the floor and electric for the second set when everyone wants to jump around to "Mr Brightside"... the way all great weddings should end!
Check out their video below where the first half is using electric instrument & the second acoustic!

With a traditional band of fiddlers, accordion, flute, drums & bagpipes he will organise and lead your guests through dances that no one would want to miss out on.
