Five years of Southend Barns

We are excited to announce that 2017 marks five years of blissful weddings at Southend Barns!

Since we first opened our doors in May 2012 we have loved every second of helping to give our brides and grooms the big day they have always dreamed of. Over these last five years we’ve popped 40,000 corks and over 25,000 bottles of champagne have been enjoyed – proof that Southend Barns’ guests sure know how to party!

So to celebrate our anniversary and a fantastic first five years, we are declaring 2017 the summer of love with parties, giveaways, photo shoots and lots more! On Sunday 7th May from 12-4pm, we will be holding our highly-anticipated Summer Wedding Fair with a glorious garden party theme.

Attendees can expect to enjoy all of the delights a summer wedding has to offer including lawn games, English fizz and delicious refreshments from our in-house caterers Field and Fork. We will also have a handpicked selection of wedding suppliers ranging from photographers and florists to stylists and cake makers.

Entry to the event is free and it’s the ideal opportunity to meet with some of the best local suppliers around and have a peek at our beautiful 200-year-old Threshing Barn, our elegant Dairy Barn with its sweeping 22 metre aisle and our luxurious Milking Parlour, which is now a stylish bridal suite. Our expert team will also be on hand throughout the fair to discuss our favourite wedding stories from the past five years and talk through all the wonderful possibilities available for a Southend Barns wedding.

In addition to our Summer Garden Party Fair, we are also excited to be holding a special fifth anniversary photo shoot, to which we will be inviting all of our former brides and grooms. It will be lovely to see the faces that have helped to shape Southend Barns and hear all about the various adventures they have had since becoming partners for life.
