Stephen & Louise's Wedding

Day of the wedding

Well the day has finally arrived and we are so looking forward to sharing this special day with you!

We are aware that we haven’t booked the easiest of dates… the May bank holiday weekend! …so we thought we would include some important information.

The ceremony will start at 15:30pm so we ask guests to arrive for 15:00pm.

There will be a three course wedding breakfast after the ceremony, this will not take place until approx. 17:45pm.

At the venue itself, there will be plenty of parking so do not worry if you are driving, the entrance is sign posted so you shouldn’t miss it. It is a narrow road and the entrance does suddenly appear on your right very quickly so be careful.

If it decides to rain Crabbs Barn have assured us they will be fully prepared and will guide the guests inside to a designated area.

The reception will finish about midnight by which point there we are sure there will be some sore dancing feet.

Please be aware that it is a cash bar only.

It is fairly easy to get to; for those travelling north bound of the A12, it is situated right off the A12 at junction 23. It is the first turning on the left and should be signposted…it is literally just a few seconds off the A12 so be careful not to miss it. There is now a sign in place to look out for.

For those travelling south bound of the A12 it will be junction 24 signposted Kelevdon, just follow the route

Most sat nav’s will take you directly to the venue.

Like most roads on bank holiday weekend you can never predict the traffic! We are aware that some of you are travelling quite far and we are extremely grateful, so we have left a list of a few hotels in the area. Again due to bank holiday weekend, it may be worth looking up availability in advance.

Wedding Gifts

All we ask for is your presence on our wedding day, but if you would like to give us a gift, then a small donation that we could put towards our home would be greatfully received.
