Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We were working hard to ensure that Crown Hall Farm was ready for our first wedding on 28th August 2021, the porcelain tiled floor in the marquee was nearly complete and our team were working hard. Rachael and Jimmy came to view at the start of July 2021, they had cancelled their wedding in Greece 4 times due to Covid. They asked 'Can we get married here in 2 1/2 weeks time?' As an experienced events company we are used to working to short deadlines so we worked day (and night) to be ready. To add a bit of Greece our caterer put together a bespoke menu with Greek Meze and Greek BBQ. This was our first wedding and under Covid restrictions, we had our risk assessment in place and had carefully considered the organisation of the day. What we couldn't have planned for was the overwhelming positive comments that we received. Despite Covid the couple and their guests had an amazing day and we have been lucky enough to welcome Rachael and Jimmy back to Crown Hall Farm recently as guests at another wedding - this time we could welcome them with open arms!
