With the venue being able to accommodate up to 150 guests for a seated dinner and 200 for the evening reception is has quickly become the wedding venue of choice for local couples getting married.

Following on from the success of their inaugural Wedding Inspiration Fair in September, the Winter Wedding Fair has been designed to inspire Brides and Grooms who want to create a winter wonderland themed day for friends and family to remember forever.

Mariella Fleming, owner of Southend Barns, has handpicked wedding suppliers offering high-end and distinctive services. She says ‘the chosen suppliers have all been tried and tested by some of our own wedding couples here at Southend Barns, and will be on hand to showcase their services and answer any questions guests may have’.

The Winter Wedding Fair will cover every wedding aspect, with suppliers being spread across both the Dairy Barn and the Threshing Barn. The plethora of stands will include videographers and photographers, wedding stationers, cake makers, musicians and stylists, to name just a few!

Remembering that the day is all about inspiration, different winter themes will also be explored offering guests a chance to pick up on the latest trends and offer an insight into how they could theme their own big day.
