Keeping it simple with hay bale ceremony seating and hessian sack covers


Hay bale ceremony seating with hessian covers

Despite the changeable and unpredictable weather in this country the number of couples choosing an outdoor ceremony doesn’t seem to be dampened by the chance of rain. If you get blessed, such as those couples who have been getting hitched in recent weeks, with beautiful blue skies and the sun beaming down, an outdoor ceremony looks pretty special.

Hay or straw bales are the perfect solution for many to how to seat all your guests, but you will need to cover them or risk the wrath of guests who’ve spent your wedding ceremony with an itchy bum!

I really like how simple and rustic these hay bale benches look with a covered of plain hessian tied on with twine. I do think you’d have to check your hessian first as I know some can be rougher than others.

If you’re on the hunt for an outdoor wedding venue, we have a wide range of barns & farms, woodlands, country houses, gardens & meadows, nature reserves and even a beach listed on the directory. And coming soon I’ll be sharing my top tips for sourcing hay bales for wedding seating.
