Catering at Southend Barns

From January 2019 the catering at Southend Barns will be provided by our in-house team, dedicated to making your unique day a memory to treasure forever. Throughout the whole process from your very first viewing to the end of your wedding day, we will be with you every step of the way to answer questions and offer advice. We will provide quality hand-made dishes prepared from the finest ingredients in our fabulous kitchen to suit every taste and dietary requirement. We will offer a wide range of menus and options for your wedding breakfast as we know that every wedding is a totally bespoke event.

Our menu prices for a three-course wedding breakfast start at £57 + VAT per person and we can also provide a barbeque or buffet meal at £58 + VAT per person if you are looking for a more informal wedding breakfast. All the prices include set up of the barn, all tableware white table linen, chilling your drinks and full waitstaff service. Also included is the management and service of your drinks after the ceremony and during the meal.
This gives you the flexibility of providing your own wine and beer for the reception and meal without any additional corkage charges. This inclusive element of corkage finishes at the end of the meal.

For the evening party, there is a reasonably priced bar which serves spirits, wine, beer, lager and soft drinks. Guests can purchase their own drinks or you can put some money behind the bar for them to enjoy.


There are also some extras that you might want to consider. These include canapés to be served during the drinks reception, evening buffets and snacks as well as meals for your suppliers.

Details on different menu options will be made available soon.

Six to eight months before your wedding we will arrange a catering meeting at Southend Barns with our events coordinator where we will discuss and plan your day in detail. We will also send you your Event Day Information Planner confirming all the details discussed. Our event coordinators are available at any time for answering queries, helping you find suppliers and they will, of course, share their best wedding day tips.

One month before your wedding we will ask you to confirm the final number of guests. In the week leading up to your wedding, we will organise a drop off meeting for you to deliver your drinks, table plan, name cards and decorations which we will set up for you on the day.
We can also check your ceremony music and confirm any outstanding arrangements to make sure every detail is covered. Then all you need to do on your wedding day is relax and enjoy yourselves.
