08 Jan Venue Focus – High House Barns, Essex
Last month I had the pleasure of taking a look around Highhouse Barns. I met with the lovely Victoria, from Pink Butterfly Weddings for a tour and a chat about this new and exciting venue.
Located not too far from the QE11 bridge in Purfleet the barns have been renovated to accomodate wedding receptions, parties and they are licensed for civil cermeonies. There is a lovely walled garden for photos and the fact that you can have the QE11 bridge in the background in certain shots give the venue a trendy, urban feel, although inside its a lovely barn.
You can bring in all of your own suppliers, although when it comes to catering Victoria has recommended caterers who know the venue, but other than that you have a blank canvas.
For live music, at Essex wedding band One Foot in the Groove we love a barn as the acoustics lend themselves very well to live music. The wood gives a nice warm rounded sound. If you are looking for something slightly different then Highhouse Barn is definately worth a look.
