Located among gently rolling hills and lush countryside, just 60 miles outside Boston, lies Fern Hill Barn by Wedgewood Weddings. This intimate event space transports you to a peaceful country paradise that feels worlds away yet remains conveniently close to city amenities. As you meander along winding backroads blanketed with lush greenery, prepare to be captivated when this delightful locale comes into view.
Old-World Charm Meets Modern Convenience
Turning off the main road, you coast up a sloping drive lined with mature trees on either side. Rounding a bend, the classic post-and-beam structure of Fern Hill Barn commands attention, exuding welcoming warmth with its fieldstone and wood-clad exterior. Nearby sits a quaint greenhouse and neatly kept cottage, subtle reminders you have escaped busy city life.
Situated on six sprawling acres, the estate envelops you in total privacy. Our convenient central parking lot lies just steps from the venue entrance, eliminating troublesome shuttles. Discover all the modern amenities needed to execute events easily while maintaining the cozy, pastoral ambiance.
Step Inside Natural Splendor
Enter through vintage barn doors to find yourself sheltered within exposed wooden beams reaching overhead. Sunlight streams in from generous windows as your eyes land on the spectacular stone fireplace room. Its double-height ceilings, iron chandeliers, and oak flooring speak to the venue's sophisticated yet comfy New England aesthetic.
The adjacent interior reception hall provides an intimate setting for groups of up to 150 guests. Transform the space with draping, uplighting, and lush florals, or keep décor minimal to let the venue's raw architectural beauty shine. Nearby, a hand-built walnut bar beckons guests to belly up and enjoy regional wines or local craft brews.
Outdoor Festivities Under the Stars
Once the nuptials have commenced, the newly wedded couple has the luxury of selecting between two fantastic reception options. One alternative allows couples to host their celebration amidst nature's breathtaking beauty in an expansive outdoor pavilion. The pavilion boasts an exquisite, pure white canopy woven throughout with the subtle luminescence of strings of delicate lights, and as dusk descends, this produces a simply enchanting ambiance.
The pavilion, situated beneath the evening sky's expanse, presents a compelling contrast, where twinkling stars blend with earthly string lights to cast a heavenly light over the celebrations. Against the tranquility of the encompassing nature and with the striking panorama of a rustic barn, this venue promises an undeniably scenic and memorable backdrop for every unforgettable wedding reception.
Awe-inspiring Ceremony Sites
For your ""I do's"" under open skies, a picturesque outdoor ceremony site awaits just steps from the main venue building yet feels pleasantly remote. Cross through a wooden garden arbor adorned with trailing vines to enter this secluded space, where rows of folding chairs point towards a classic gazebo. You'll glide down the aisle lined with lush gardens on either side before climbing steps to say your vows in the round gazebo or on the grass just before it.
Festooned with flowers and greenery or left elegantly bare, the gazebo's timeless architecture blends harmoniously into the pastoral landscape, an organic, dreamy backdrop for sealing your marriage commitment. Surrounded by trees and flower beds in full summer bloom, this space promises a lush garden oasis while remaining conveniently near your reception.
Multiple Photo Opportunities at Fern Hill Barn
Fern Hill Barn delivers no shortage of swoon-worthy backdrops for couples looking to capture dazzling wedding photos. Newlyweds will discover picturesque photo ops around every corner—from the pondside gazebo dripping with vines to the lush gardens blooming in vibrant colors.
Steal a romantic moment under the woodland arbor at sunset with hazy hills behind you awash in golden light. Creative couples can incorporate chalkboard signs, vintage props, or playful photos amidst the whimsical frog statues dotting the grounds. Whether you prefer natural, organic shots or more playful, artsy photos, Fern Hill Barn offers scenic diversity to match your photographic vision. You'll treasure these images reflecting the countryside beauty surrounding you on your special day for a lifetime.
