You are welcome to use your own suppliers. Suppliers must be able to provide public liability insurance and if they bring electrical equipment to the barn this must be PAT tested.
We do have a list of suppliers who have visited the barn before, please contact us for this.
We do not have onsite overnight accommodation however we do have an approved list of local recommended accommodation with a range of price points and styles. Please see our full list of Recommended Hotels.
We have an in house sound system which is compatible with devices that have a headphone socket (eg. mp3 player, tablet, phone or laptop) You are welcome to bring your own playlist to use with this and many guests find it really useful for ceremony music and background music for their reception. You are also welcome to have live music chosen by yourselves or one of our recommended suppliers which include bands and dj’s. For details on our recommended band Buddhalicious please see our blog post ‘the band for all occasions’.
We have a selection of fairy lights, outside lighting and furniture.
