My Fairy Godmother
Where to start with this review!! 🧡 Il start with My “Fairy godmother” Rosie. Absolutely above and beyond expectations from this lady! We had to change our wedding not once but three times during the pandemic. Rosie was our absolute rock. Called all involved moved over the dates reassured Matthew and I on the daily that everything will be ok! I could call this lady at 3am and Rosie would be there! After three long years of waiting. We finally got our perfect PERFECT day! And it’s quite literally all down to Mapperley Farm🫶🏼 The venue…. Such a dreamy place!! Matthew and I tied the knot in the barn. It couldn’t have been more perfect! The sun was shining the court yard was full of happy guest with drinks and canapés. We then had our reception in park view field in tipis we had a tracker ride down with all our friends and family (tractor provided by Mapperley Farm) all involved were recommended by Mapperley farm and We wouldn’t have had it any other way the “dream team” I will forever remember Rosie, Sam and their incredible team for making our wedding our dream I miss you already! Counting down the days for our wedding renewal to do it all over again with you! All our love, The Hutchinson 🧡

More than just a farm
Lucy Wilson Bell recommends Mapperley Farm Events Venue: "More than just a farm! We started our wedding planning journey back in March 2019 looking for a venue for our festival themed wedding. Mapperley farm was our second venue and we immediately fell in love with Park View with there gorgeous intimate ceremony space plus fabulous views from the field. We had to get married here! Rosie and Sam took care of us from the get go and helped us find a lot of our suppliers alongside offering extra bits and pieces we could hire from them that were perfect for our day. We were also one of the unfortunate couples who had to postpone twice due to covid but the transitions of dates were so easy for all parties. In the lead up weeks towards the wedding Rosie walked us through our order of the day including organising the registrar meetings. She really does answer problems you hadn't considered to be a problem before hand. She also had fun plotting some of our silly games we had planned for our guests to do whilst we were away on our photoshoot. Building a festival wedding from the ground up could have been a stressful occasion from setting up the day before and take down after. But honestly Rosie's team were the absolute dream team throughout the weekend. We cannot thank you enough for all that you did. Lucy & Matt xx"

Amazing
Hi Rosie and Sam I know that we thanked you both personally yesterday, but I just wanted to write to you to let you know that we have been inundated with lovely messages about how brilliant the whole weekend was - from the camping on Friday right through to Saturday night! People were just amazed about how magical it was at Mapperley Farm, and it is a day they, and we, will never forget. The photos are starting to come through from guests (not the official ones yet), so I thought I’d send you a few, as you may want to use them in your slideshow when guests visit your site. Thank you so much once again - I feel exhausted but overwhelmed at how wonderful the whole experience was. You are both amazing.
