Emmie from Sussex barns

Please Tell us about yourself –

I’m from a creative background and love helping brides and grooms create their perfect day! I am truly passionate about what I do, no wedding is ever the same here and I thrive off seeing everything coming together. It’s an utter delight! I’m a hopeless romantic too and am forever grateful to be in a job where I am surrounded by happiness.

Your business 


How long you been in business?

Since the millennium 

What made you want to set up your business?

Sussex Barn was set up by the owners and after having family parties at the barn in the early days, they decided it would make a great venue!

What’s the best part of your job?

Seeing brides and grooms so happy.It’s wonderful seeing all the planning come together!

What’s the worst part of your job?

Occasionally I have to miss out on my own friends and family’s weddings, it’s tough.

What’s the weirdest request you’ve ever had from a client?

To change the chandelier light bulbs from white to purple (There are over 200 in the barn!) In the end we opted for a purple lighting film, which we placed over the side lights.It was really effective!

What’s been your favourite ever wedding you’ve worked on/at?

Tough question, they have all been an absolute delight! One that brings to mind is from a few years ago, which fell on Halloween.The wedding party celebrated the day after the wedding with the most spectacular Halloween party, it was quite a weekend and enormous fun.The costumes were amazing! Many of the guests were from the creative industry, so they went ALL out!!

Best piece of advice to offer to those getting married

The more suppliers you have the more expensive things will become and the larger it will be to manage.

You – lets have some fun

 Where do you call home?
The beach, I feel completely relaxed and happy there. Although my actual home is tucked away on a hill amongst a beautiful wood. I’m extremely lucky to live here in North Norfolk with the beach a stone’s throw away.

Favourite shop?
Nelle DK,Drove Orchards, Thornham. It’s a Danish clothing company with the most exquisite garments. If you’re looking for something different, you’ll find it there! The shoes are define and I guarantee everyone will ask where you got them from. 
Favourite restaurant?
20 North Street, Burnham Market.
Favourite Film?
The Lion King, it’s a Disney classic which I’ll never tire of.
Cocktail/Drink of Choice?
Campari and Soda with a twist of orange on ice. I drink this when I’m on holiday in Italy. It reminds me of my Grandma who was a wonderful human, it was one of her favourite drinks…although she had hers with a glacier cherry on the side!
