Supplier spotlight – Sussex Barn
This month, Emmie from Sussex Barns joins me on my blog to answer my quick-fire ‘get to know you’ questions! I love working at Sussex Barns, it is a beautiful venue with so many amazing places for photos. Being in the middle on know where as well you get the really lovely country feel and the barn is just stunning
I’m totally delighted to introduce Emmie so that she can tell you a little bit more about herself ….
Please Tell us about yourself –
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!!
You’re surrounded by beauty in your job. What do you find beautiful?
Pure and simple LOVE.
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.

Penny from The Little Lending Company. She’s just got it right.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Everything comes together in the end.
You – lets have some fun

If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?
Greed, it’s an ugly and damaging trait.
