Your Bespoke Online Wedding Planner


Planning your wedding can take over your life, in a good way!

There are so many delightful decisions to be made; not long after you’re engaged, you start thinking about the ‘where’ and ‘when’ of your wedding day, then once those are sorted you’ll find there are a squillion other lovely things to think about.
That’s why when you book The Mill Barns for your rustic barn wedding you’ll get access to our completely bespoke, online Wedding Planner. Unlike the wedding planner notebooks you can buy, or the digital downloads available, The Mill 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.
Here’s a brief look at what you’ll discover inside your personalised online Wedding Planner:

What Happens Next?

You’ve chosen your date and booked The Mill Barns as your wedding venue, now what!!?
This is your guide to what happens next; you’ll find a complete rundown of those landmark dates on the run up to your wedding and some helpful pointers on what you should be focused on right now!


Your Key Players

It goes without saying that you two, the future ‘Mr & Mrs’, are without doubt the most important people, without whom there is no wedding…. but there will be a team of people helping bring your wedding day dreams to life.
Who makes up your bridal party, which besties get to be your bridesmaids, will it be one or two Best Men?

How to Make the Venue Your Own

At The Mill Barns Wedding Venue we offer you the flexibility to dress the venue to suit your individual style and wedding theme.
This section of your online Wedding Planner details how to achieve the perfect stress-free venue setup, while you enjoy getting ready for your big day in our amazing bridal suite.

Your No Corkage Drinks

Our online Wedding Planner gives a handy refresher on the three different ways that you can supply your no corkage drinks at The Mill Barns; Sale or Return through The Cellar, Design a Bespoke Drinks Package or Supply Your Own.
You’ll find out when you need to place your drinks order and how to order online, in addition to finding out the best way to supply your own drinks.

Delicious Dining

Your wedding breakfast is such a fabulous part of your wedding day; through your Wedding Planner you’ll discover a whole host of amazing menu ideas and creative dishes to spark your imagination and help you to design your perfect wedding menu.
We’re sure you’ll enjoy your meal, although it can be nice to sneak out inbetween courses to capture a couple of intimate shots of just the two of you.

Your Dream Team

All we wish for you, is that you enjoy your perfect wedding day. Everyone does it differently but whether you’re planning a DIY wedding or seeking wedding suppliers who totally get you and your style you’ll end up with your very own Dream Team.
We’d love it if you used this section of the Wedding Planner to tell us who they are and how they’re helping to bring your vision to life.


Not only will you find out your unique Promotion Code which allows guests to book accommodation onsite for your wedding night; the Wedding Planner also lets you monitor which rooms get booked and which remain available so that you can maximise the onsite accommodation at The Mill Barns.

The Big Day

Your wedding day timings will be unique to you but it’s really useful to have an idea of how your wedding day might flow depending on your ceremony time.
You’ll find three different variations on the Order of The Day and then following your planning meeting we’ll publish your personalised totally bespoke Wedding Day Timings in this section of your private Wedding Planner… exciting!
