Our Message To You
Following the Prime Minister's Announcement on May 10th 2020
We wanted to offer an update as soon as possible, following the Prime Minister’s address on Sunday 10th May 2020.
Forgive the slight delay but the detailed document supporting his statement wasn’t released until late on 11th May 2020.
The government have set out their ‘steps of adjustments to current measures’, which suggest our earliest possible reopening date is 4th July 2020.
With that in mind and in recognition of the fact that it takes more than just love and kindness to plan the perfect wedding, we have updated our Covid-19 Response Policy accordingly.
Full details of this policy can be viewed by clicking the button below.
Covid-19 Response Policy
Planning Your Wedding During Lockdown
Help is at hand. Our office might be closed but a core team of Wedding Specialists are on hand to help you plan your amazing day. We’re happy to chat and whilst we cannot man the office telephone we can still pick up your voicemails and we’re happy to give you a call back.
Just bear in mind that because we’re working from home, the Caller ID will be withheld. Also please accept our apologies in advance if we’re a little slower than normal getting back to you, most of us have young children at home and have never fully appreciated the primary school teaching staff until now!
Home working will be the norm for many of your wonderful wedding suppliers. We continue to do our best to support the incredible independent wedding suppliers whose passion for weddings and desire to offer you a great service on your wedding day, hasn’t changed.
If your wedding supplier needs our help with anything, don’t hesitate to ping us an email and we’ll get in touch with them directly.
Your Online Wedding Planner
Don’t forget about your online Wedding Planner, unlike the wedding planner notebooks you can buy, or the digital downloads available, The Ashes Barns Wedding Planner is venue specific and contains relevant information about your wedding.
It’s packed full of top tips, landmark dates, supplier recommendations and detailed information about your wedding and what you need to tackle next.

Ideas & Inspiration
We’ve had to take a little time out from Social Media since the Coronavirus Crisis hit and hope that you’ve been missing our Wedding Inspo posts as much as we’ve missed sharing them.
Whilst there are no recent posts, our Facebook and Instagram Accounts hold a massive back-catalogue of divine wedding Inspo and venue highlights for you to browse through.
Our relatively new Pinterest account might also throw up a few inspirational ideas for your wedding wish list.
We often feature Real Weddings and details of new and exciting venue developments on our blog page.
If you see anything you like or have queries about the best time to do something, or how it works, just get in touch!
Your Planning Meeting
We’ve embraced Zoom for our own regular team meetings and we’d love to see your friendly face as we chat though the timings of your big day and get to grips with what’s really important to you on your wedding day.
We’ll ask you loads of questions at your Planning Meeting so that on your wedding day, we know exactly how you want the day to flow and we can get on with making that happen, while you get on with enjoying yourselves!
Planning Meetings will be held once we know your wedding is going ahead.
Please also be reassured that we are not requesting final balances until we know your wedding is able to go ahead in line with government directives.
Sign Up for Zoom
It has been and continues to be, a very challenging time for us all. Every single day, we assess what we can do for our couples and ask ourselves if we can do more.
We hope that you share our optimism for a wonderful future of joyous celebrations. A glass of fizz, raised high, in celebration of your love; that is truly something to look forward to.
Thank you for your patience, your kindness and your understanding; we are here for you and we will continue to work hard and give you our very best, always.
