Suppliers

At Chapel Barn, we want to help you plan exactly the event that you want. Think of the barn as a blank canvas to use for you and your ideas.

If you need help with any aspect of your event, we know some fantastic people and companies that we can recommend. There is absolutely no obligation to use any of them, we would just like to let you know about some reliable local people and services we have personally worked with.

Wedding Planning & Wedding Day Management
We know that most couples like to do as much of the planning and organising themselves but sometimes a helping hand is just what’s needed when there’s so much to do.

We can help you plan the whole day or just certain elements by using our wealth of experience in DIY weddings and contacts with quirky and unique suppliers.

Our Wedding Day Management Service means you can enjoy your big day without having to think about what’s going on behind the scenes.

We will co-ordinate the entire day for you, making sure suppliers arrive on time, caterers are ready and the day runs to plan, ensuring every element comes together with style and efficiency. Please contact us for more information on how we can help you plan your perfect wedding at Chapel Barn
