At Bateman's Barn we see ourselves as just part of a wider, local community who are on hand to help. We call it the Waveney Wedding Collective

The title reflects the long-term relationships and ongoing partnerships which we're proud to have with many local (and slightly less than local) suppliers. It represents the vast array of tried-and-tested creative and often curious contacts at our fingertips. We think they're people you might like to find out more about. People you'd like to meet. People you would like to part of your special day. 

You can get in touch directly with our wonderful suppliers listed below, or come and meet them at one of Waveney Wedding Collective wedding fairs.


Upcoming Events, Wedding Fairs & Open Days

Take a little time out to come and see us on our little island, tucked away in the rolling landscapes of South Elmham. And feel things for yourself. 


Our lastest evening wedding event was a great success. We showcased what's on offer to entertain your guests after dark with a chance to enjoy a relaxed evening party atmosphere at Bateman’s Barn island wedding venue.
Our venue was enjoyed by guests as we moved from daytime to evening and they had a chance to meet some of the wonderful local businesses who can bring even more wow-factor to your wedding day and evening celebrations. We had live music, a fire pit with marshmallows to enjoy, funky food trucks and tastings, night life photography, well-stocked bar and wine tasting and finale of fireworks.

At our second Waveney Wedding Collective Wedding Fair, we showcased a wide range of lovely Suffolk and Norfolk suppliers from Bungay and beyond. But as well as a selection of respected local businesses like photographers, caterers and florists who can provide those wedding essentials, there’ were little companies with temptingly curious and more quirky offerings to make your wedding all the more individual too.

At Bateman’s Barn, we’d like your wedding to be about you having fun, dreaming big – a real celebration of who you are as a couple, with everything all together just the way you want it to be.

We look forward to meeting you, to introducing you to our trusted suppliers and showing you round our unique historic wedding venue.


Spring Wedding Fair  - Sunday 15th May 2022, 11am - 3pm 
Come and meet some of our wonderful trusted local suppliers and experience our venue in all its spring glory. All welcome. Free entry and parking.



At Bateman's Barn we are privileged to work with a wonderful network of local - and at times, slightly less than local – suppliers who share our values and deliver unique, first class service to our wedding couples.

Pendragon provides a dynamic evening of music and dance from across Europe and beyond. Our very experienced happy band play fiddle, accordion, hurdy-gurdy, French bagpipes and electric bass. Full instructions are given on all dances from our very experienced caller, so complete novices will soon be promenading and stripping the willow with the best of them.

No 'dancing skills' required - everyone can get involved. It's a great way to meet all the other guests and have some fun doing it! Pendragon's big sound, unusual instruments and adventurous tunes are equally enjoyable to those who might want to 'sit this one out' .
