I wanted to say a huge, huge, HUGE thank you to Rob and all of the team who worked on the day of our wedding on Saturday 25th November at Southend Barns.

You are all absolutely amazing and were literally stars from the word go. I remember feeling awful that I asked Rob to put some flowers on the top table that were not there – he reassured me that it was fine and it was done instantly. When we asked for the music level to be increased at dinner – no problem, it was done. We always knew people would be in good spirits, but I never expected we would be out of our seats, dancing around the tables between meals though! It was my favourite part of the day!

My mum said that at one point so many people were up and out of their seats dancing that staff were walking around not sure where to put the deserts! Mum said they were so incredible professional despite the madness going on around them.

The food – everyone was blown away. Commenting that they’ve never seen so much food at a wedding, never had such tasty food at a wedding. The service at the bar, during dinner and just all night. I cannot thank you enough for being so incredible.

Rob, you truly are a star. You made us feel so comfortable and just got us from the minute we met you. I know we turned up with a hell of a lot of booze on the Thursday and even I was shocked at how little was leftover!  I remember speaking with you Rob, at the end as Paul settled up with you, but neither of us can remember what the overall total was for the bar in the end? I think secretly Paul is hoping we beat your record ha-ha. I know I said it then but thank you Rob, and sorry if I did seem bride-zilla when I asked where the bouquets were J

I’m still on cloud 9 but also incredibly sad it is all over. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the day so effortlessly smooth and successful. You have weddings on every weekend throughout the year; but what is so special about you and the team at SEB is you never made us feel like another number. It was as if we were the only couple to ever marry at SEB – so personal. So thank you again, for being a part of the best day of our lives. I hope that you enjoyed being a part of it as much as we enjoyed having you.

Carly and Paul Hewett – 25th November 2017

Thank you for the most incredible day on Saturday. It was just amazing from beginning to end. Your attention to detail just brought our vision completely to life. Nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff. Rob and Alice we can not thank you enough for keeping everything running smoothly what with the weather and my mum who likes to flap under pressure hehe. You made quick and prompt changes as and when were needed to keep everything smooth and perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and we have had the best experience from the day we booked until we walked away as Mr & Mrs yesterday morning. Our guests were overwhelmed with everything and the complements about the venue and staff were never ending. For us the day was most memorable as every single one of our guests were having the best time.

Thank you so much for everyone’s hard work, skill, attention to detail, kindness and professionalism. We are truly and utterly overwhelmed and words can not describe how thankful and grateful we are.

We both wanted to thank the Field and Fork team so much for such an amazing day on Friday. The organisation was perfect all the way through which made our job very easy and the food was A-Maze-Ing!

We didn’t have to think about anything on the day but enjoying ourselves – and that we did!

All our guests commented on how fabulous the food and service was.


Jane and John Kelly – 6th October 2017

Thank you for helping us have a fantastic wedding and making it so special.  We’ve had so many kind words from family and friends and realise it was such a success because of your input.  We had an amazing day which we will remember forever.



Charlotte and Russ Prior – 10th June 2017

We are only just starting to recover from the big day! We absolutely loved the food, the service and how it all ran. You set the barn up perfectly to how we wanted it. No problems at all, all ran so smoothly like clockwork. All our guests commented on how lovely the food was and attentive the waiting staff were. We are both sad it’s all over now. It was overall the best day ever, thanks for making it so special.

Becky and Phil Bradford – 23rd July 2017

Thank you for helping to make our wedding day perfect.  The service and food were amazing and couldn’t be faulted; everyone loved it!  Special thanks to Rob for looking after us on the day and making sure the bubbles were topped up.  We had a fantastic day so thank you.


Katie and Sam Medcraft – 20th May 2017

Well what can we say.  Thank you to you and your whole team for the delicious food and amazing service we received at our vows on Sunday.  Everyone commented on the food and service and how good they both were.  From the first point of contact up until the day everyone we have come in contact with at F&F have been so lovely and professional.  It certainly puts your mind at ease when arranging an event like this.

Rob worked especially hard and looked after everyone – so thank you for that.

Jo and Adrian Chambers – renewal of vows – 28th May 2017

To the amazing team at Field & Fork; a HUGE thank you to you all for everything you did to make our wedding as fabulous as it was.  Thank you for ensuring everything ran smoothly and for the outstanding service you provided.  So many guests commented on the amazing food and friendly service, not to mention the awesome Cosmos you made up for our welcome drinks!  It truly was a perfect day and we could not have wished for me.


With love from Harriet and Daniel Conrad

Harriet and Daniel Conrad – 16th February 2017

After visiting their fair we chose Southend Barns as the venue for the reception celebrating the wedding of my daughter which took place on the 13th May 2017.  I cannot compliment the team at Southend Barns enough.  The arrangements were expertly marshalled and the food from Field and Fork was excellent. All of the staff were pleasant and efficient, but in particular I would like to thank Rob from Field and Fork who managed the proceedings most effectively.
