Built and run to be as eco-friendly as possible, the wedding barns have been carefully restored to create the perfect setting for a romantic civil ceremony and wedding reception.
Set in luscious landscaped gardens with hidden courtyards and a terrace bar, you and your guests can enjoy a real piece of paradise.
The Threshing Barn
A magnificent space for a wedding reception and party, the Threshing Barn exudes countryside opulence with exposed wooden beams and original features. Offering plenty of flexibility for all sizes and styles of wedding reception, it is the perfect backdrop for your evening celebrations.
The Dairy Barn – Ceremony Room
Fully licensed for all civil ceremonies and partnerships, The Dairy Barn has a serene and tranquil ambiance with simple but romantic styling to complement all wedding day themes. An idyllic setting to exchange your vows; the barn can also be used later in the day as another reception space for you and your guests.
The Secret Garden
Nestled in a peaceful spot between our alpaca’s field and the flint walls of the Dairy Barn is our outdoor wedding ceremony garden. Lined with elegant concrete benches and surrounded by beautiful borders, the sweeping 50-foot aisle leads to a sheltered pagoda where you will exchange your vows.
The Milking Parlour – Bridal Suite
Located in its own private courtyard with rose garden and water feature, the bridal suite provides a calm and relaxing space for you to use throughout your special day. The log-fire, luxurious interiors and thoughtful touches also make it a welcoming place to retire at the end of an unforgettable evening with a glass of sparkle. You can also look forward to a freshly prepared Roots breakfast hamper the next morning.
Mama Lou – Shepherd’s Hut
Set in our alpaca’s grazing field with its own festoon-lit private pathway and garden, our Mama Lou Shepherd’s Hut has been immaculately restored to create a sumptuous and unique retreat. Equipped with everything you could need, you can enjoy a feeling of complete rural escapism as you curl up in front of the fire and listen to the sounds of the countryside. In the fridge you’ll find a bottle of chilled prosecco as well as fresh juice and milk for your morning coffee to accompany your Roots breakfast delivery.
The Collecting Yard and Gardens
Surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and picture-perfect hideaways including our resident alpaca’s field, Southend Barns provides a romantic haven all year round. The central courtyard offers a safe and sociable area where you can also find the all-weather Collecting Yard complete with terrace bar, sheltered alfresco seating and roaring fire pit.
Our glorious countryside setting boasts plenty of picturesque backdrops for photos and as evening falls the gardens are romantically lit to create an enchanting evening experience.
