It was always my dream to one day get married here
Abbey Farm ticked all the boxes for what we wanted: local, rustic, characterful, boho & BEAUTIFUL! It really was the perfect venue, in fact I had my eye on this venue way before we even got engaged - it was always my dream to one day get married there! Both of us really had our hearts set on getting married in a barn, the fact that this one is only 25 minutes from where we live and just a stones-throw from Woodhall Spa is great. Woodhall Spa is a lovely village that has so much to offer, and the perfect base for our out-of-town friends and family to stay for the weekend of the wedding! When we met Jo and Millie for the first time we knew we'd be in good hands. We really liked the fact that Abbey Farm is run by a small team, it gives you a very personalised and intimate experience that feels nothing like ‘cookie cutter’ wedding package, instead it was very tailored to our needs and wishes. We especially liked that the venue was exclusively ours for the weekend, giving us ample time to set up the day before, and clear after ourselves the day after - no conveyor belt weddings here! Us and our guests loved the laid back vibe of Abbey Farm, the layout is great as you can spend lots of time outdoors, exactly what we wanted for our summer wedding! Jo, Millie & Will are genuinely lovely people who we trusted & enjoyed communicating with. On the day, they were on hand to help with anything & they had fun with us too whilst maintaining utmost professionalism.

Cannot wait to go back!
As a wedding photographer who visits many wedding venues around the UK, I would highly recommend the guys and girls at Abbey Farm Wedding’s. Throughout the time I was photographing the wedding of Andy and Becky, the guys and girls were incredibly organised, making sure everything was as the couple wanted. The outdoor space for the wedding ceremonies is stunning and very unique. The wedding breakfast room is full of character and is a great room for the speeches. I cannot wait to go back to Abbey Farm Wedding’s as it’s very special.

It is just all about YOU as a couple
It's such a beautiful place! Honestly, the wedding was exactly how I dreamed it would be. Jo, Millie and Will were amazing! Nothing was too much trouble for them and their advice was brilliant. It was great to be able to make our wedding vision a reality with no restrictions on food, DJ etc., it is just all about you as a couple. It was DIY but experienced people are there to eb able to help and guide you through the day.
