The Barns is a beautiful, rustic wedding venue in Faxfleet set up by Farmers, Kate and Ed three years ago.

Lightowler began working with The Barns in 2021. The team provides regular deep cleaning services in:

  • the ceremony barn
  • busy bar area
  • toilet facilities
  • and outside firepit and dining area

We spoke to The Barns Founder, Kate, about how the business has been affected over the last 18 months, its return to normal and the impact Lightowler has had.

Tell us a little about how The Barns was affected by the pandemic

We set up The Barns around three years ago. Once word began to spread, we became incredibly busy, booking up the venue years in advance. Following the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown, the business, which had risen to become a hugely popular venue for discerning couples, had to close.

What followed was a devastating 18 months, which was the same for everyone across the weddings industry.

Thankfully, we’re now able to start providing The Barns as a venue again. We’ve picked up where we left off and are now putting on three times as many ceremonies as before. It has, and will continue to be, a busy summer as we make every couple’s big day special.

How did you hear about Lightowler?

Lightowler has a great reputation, so we already knew about its services. We were actually due to start working with the team in 2020 but had to pause due to lockdown restrictions forcing us to close. So here we are in 2021, now working together.

Why did you decide to start using Lightowler’s services?

Even before COVID, we had grown at such a pace that we could no longer rely on our family and a team of local cleaners. We knew we needed a reliable, professional business to help maintain our high standards.

Of course, this has become even more important as we exit lockdown. We want our guests to feel as safe as possible, and part of that is ensuring that every space is spotlessly clean. Lightowler helps us achieve that.

How frequently is Lightowler visiting?

At the moment, Lightowler sends a team to visit the morning straight after an event in preparation for setting up the next.

What do the team from Lightowler do during their time with you?

They clean absolutely everything! We have a busy bar area, a ceremony barn, toilet facilities and an outdoor fire pit and dining area. The team deep clean all these spaces.

How has working with the Lightowler team gone so far?

They are brilliant. They’ve been reliable, friendly, professional and the space has been spotless after they leave, which is of course the main thing! For us, reliability and knowing that we’ll be ready to get set up in time for the next wedding is so important. It’s a particularly busy time so having Lightowler as a resource is incredibly important for the business.
