Shepherd Huts are the new romantic addition to the British wedding

Shepherd Huts romantic addition to British weddings

The new trend for the modern British wedding is both simple and luxurious and it takes the form of a shepherd’s hut. Adding a rural and traditional element to weddings and wedding venues, Blackdown Shepherd Huts have responded to an increase in requests for shepherd huts and have set about creating special for-hire huts that meet all types of wedding needs from bride’s dressing rooms to the ultimate honeymoon hut.

Will Vickery, who owns Blackdown Shepherd Huts in Ilminster, Somerset, says: ‘The demand for huts to be used at weddings has really increased recently. Shepherd huts appear to be bang on trend, probably because they’re beautiful to look at and work well as photo backdrops, as well as being idyllic and private, special and intimate.’

Whether it’s going the whole way and holding the entire day outside or just adding a few special touches, it’s something that can be easily catered for.
