Everyone remembers the first time they saw the barn - a pretty drive up a winding road through the forest. Suddenly, the vista opens up to reveal the beautiful Slocan River down to your left and the massive, awe inspiring barn sitting peacefully in the middle of the hay fields.
Walking through the huge barn doors into the main floor of the original dairy - you'll be reminded that it doesn't matter if the sun shines or the rain pours on your big day, The Ayrshire is truly an indoor/outdoor event venue.
The main floor of the barn is a weathered, chippy white painted paradise!
Straw bale couches flank the left side of the barn. Original, shiplap, barn board box stalls line the right. Authentic farm yard photo opportunities everywhere you look!.
It's easy to imagine setting up an elegant cocktail bar under the pretty strings of lights that twinkle from the front of the dairy to the back. Let your imagination go wild - the entire place is yours to create the rustic wedding of your dreams!
Follow the lights through the dairy to a beautiful outdoor patio. Picnic tables and pretty umbrellas - cool and shady in the summer - a perfect beer garden! Your guests can rest and visit here while you are busy with your photographer.
But, the the best is yet to come - when you walk up the stairs to the incredibly beautiful hay loft.!
The cathedral-like architecture and the stunningly impressive, 4400sq/ft of historical wood construction, not to mention the 35ft high ceilings, create a one of a kind atmosphere for your event. There's nothing quite like it!
The barn is over 100 years old and is solid and dry - a building to be appreciated and marvelled at. It has charm, character, strength and beauty and will provide an unparalleled backdrop for photos. It is also a barn that housed animals for over a century. These days the barn is event-ready. The rustic elegance of the wedding barn is second to none and when you embrace the age of this incredible building you will not be disappointed!
