Overwhelmed?  No worries – after booking your date, we’ll go through every detail of your event.  Bring along your suppliers (eg photographer/florist) and we’ll answer their questions as well.  This will be at your Key Meeting with us and we’ll guide as much as you wish.  We’ve organised beautiful weddings for decades but we always remember that yours is unique.  Choose from linen colours, discuss food (including vegetarian guests) – and go through the timing for your day.  We’ll then create your Bespoke Contract, setting out all your details with a handy timing schedule for you, to assist in the smooth running of your perfect day.

Please note:

Pledgdon Barn is a non-smoking venue but outside sand-tubs are provided. Fireworks/floating lanterns are not permitted anywhere.  Confetti only on grassed areas. Inside, we request that only petals, large confetti or larger ‘table sprinkle shapes’ are used but NOT tiny table ‘sprinkle/glitter/beads/crystal’ (can’t be hoovered well) nor ‘canons’/explosive devices which spread contents high onto beams and may incur extra cleaning charges! Similarly, chunky ‘church’-style candles please for stability/safety but no tea-lights placed on cloths. Finally, bubbles are for outside only – they fall over inside and cause slippery mess.  NB DO SUPERVISE CHILDREN eg outside re animals, road, equipment, cars etc.
