Perfect wedding venue
We had the perfect wedding day at South Farm. Everybody was so organised and attentive, especially our event manager Hayley, which meant we could relax and enjoy the day. The food was incredible with many of our guests commenting it was the best wedding meal they'd ever had. The venue was beautiful with so many locations for photos. We are so pleased with our choice and would highly recommend.

The BEST day of our lives!
Where do we start. Our wedding at South Farm was just simply the best day we could ever have asked for! From start to finish we could not stop smiling! We found South Farm one week day evening scrolling on Bridebook. From the off, we both agreed this was the venue we wanted to see, hoping that we could get married outside in the summerhouse. Funnily enough that weekend was an open day, back in January 2022. Well what can I say, I cried just driving up the drive way, it already felt like it was meant to be. And I can honestly say, I didn't think I would be like that! The staff on this day were all present, warm, welcoming and kind. They would ask if we needed anything or recommend somewhere to visit on site. The venue is absolutely beautiful! All year round - trust me I've been back many a times! Once we head outside to see the summerhouse, I kid you not, we were both emotional. It's like we could just see our wedding day happening in front of our eyes. Now let me explain, neither of us have been the kind of people to think or imagine our wedding until we just decided to look on Bridebook and that we wanted to get married outside. South Farm was our first and last venue we visited!! Once we found out the price packages, cheaper in the week, and our date was available. It was a no brainer! We took our parents back to visit, they all also loved the venue, some emotional as I always was! Once booking the venue, which was exclusively ours on the day, staff were always in contact with us via email. We had everything broken down, price plan, no hidden costs, accommodation, food, drink, recommendations of external suppliers and more. Staff at South Farm could not be more helpful and friendly. Honestly love these guys! Just amazing! Our sit down planning meeting with Emily was fantastic. She made us feel like we knew her forever. It was comfortable, chilled and unique to us. We went through everything and time just passed so quickly. We were never made to feel rushed and we always made to feel special. Our wedding day went smoother than we could have possibly imagined. We had THE BEST DAY!!! Our events manager assigned to us Hayley was a superstar, so chilled, but so on the ball, enabled us to just enjoy every moment with each other and our guests. The staff took care of everything and the chefs were superb! Honestly cannot thank them enough! They really are amazing and we highly recommend South Farm!!! South Farm have regular pop up events open days, and just generally welcome the public to see their beautiful venue. I will literally always go back. Thank you all so much.

An incredible day!
South farm as a venue is absolutely incredible. It’s beautiful, varied and well tended. The flowers and, summer house and animals made it so unique and such a fun place to get married. The food was fantastic, where most wedding food you get can be dry and dull, the food at southfarm was flavoursome, so well cooked and restaurant quality! The staff at the venue are brilliant. They look after you so well, going above and beyond all expectations and we can’t thank them enough for giving us such a fantastic day. All in all we can’t recommend this venue highly enough, 10/10, 5*, perfect!

Truly magical
What can we say about South Farm. It is a truly magical place to get married which is only emphasised by the amazing team that they have there. From the initial meeting where they still made us feel special, with a wedding going on that day, to all the planning and the day itself. They took the stress away from the day. The food is amazing with our guests saying it's the best wedding breakfast they've had. The team at South Farm made our day phenomenal and so special and I could not recommend them enough. Thank you xx

Fantastic wedding experience
We absolutely loved our wedding at South Farm! We were completely blown away by South Farm's professionalism and flexibility throughout, from the first show-round to the post-wedding communications (which spanned a period of 2 years!). Many of our guests commented on how smoothly the day went, and the food was absolutely delicious! We highly recommend South Farm!

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at South Farm?

Each and every wedding held here at South Farm is special and unique - we couldn't possibly choose! However there are so many special moments to share from weddings... we love the moments the bride shares with her bridesmaids before she walks down the aisle. The moment the groom sees his bride is always a favourite and we love the famous South Farm rose petal confetti shower after the ceremony! We recently had a couple choose a song during their ceremony rather than a reading and all their guests joined them in a lovely rendition of ‘Stand By Me’ - such a special moment with everyone singing their hearts out! And another firm favourite is when couples venture into our barnyard and have pictures with our super-cute little piglets! We also had a bride choosing to arrive to the ceremony on our Tuk Tuk, her father’s face was a picture of delight when he realised he was getting a spin on an authentic Thai Tuk Tuk before giving his daughter away!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy your special day! At South Farm you will have a dedicated Event Manager who will look after you and your guests on your Wedding Day meaning you can relax and just enjoy yourselves!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We have seen so many lovely ideas from a Vintage Fairground Carousel in our Courtyard to Duck Herding in the Gardens! All our couples are very welcome to bring their own ideas and add their own unique touches. We've had bouncy castles, festival-themed weddings, helicopters landing and couples bringing their dog to be ring-bearer or their own horse for post-ceremony photos!

Describe South Farm in 5 adjectives

Stunning, Unique, Secluded, Rustic, Boho

Where’s the best photo spot at South Farm?

There are so many to choose from! The Bridge over the pond is a favourite, so is the driveway lined with cherry trees and lit up with fairy lights. The lovely blue front door of the main house is a perfect spot for confetti photographs and the Steam Engine is great for pictures too! We also love it when our couples have the photograph taken with our farm animals - piglets shots are the cutest!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at South Farm?

Yes! Though we are very discreet so our lips are sealed!

What’s your favourite canapé?

All of them are mini-morsels of deliciousness! If we had to choose a favourite it would be between the Smoked Salmon Cone with Agruvar & Cucumber and Chilli & Orange Chicken Liver Pate served on roundels of Olive Oil Fried Bread but it's a tough choice and there are so many other delicious South Farm canapés we couldn't possibly choose just one!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

A sparkler photo in the courtyard followed by wedding cake and prosecco in the bridal suite for the happy couple!!

What is South Farm most unique feature?

We have a team of very talented chefs and all our catering is in-house. Our own smallholding supplies nearly all our vegetables, herbs, fruit, eggs and pork whatever the season. We grow literally hundreds of vegetable varieties, with passion and care. It’s the key to our ultra-fresh, seasonal and organic wedding food menus. Couples can choose from a formal three course served menu or any one of a number of buffets including a sumptuous Fusion Feast, a Hog Roast like no other you ever tasted, a Hot Buffet with a great choice of menu options or the time honoured BBQ. Plus delicious salads of every variety. Prefer something else? That’s no trouble at all… Our chefs love to create new dishes so if you are looking for something that’s not on our standard menus just talk to us – we are very happy to be creative if you have your heart set on something special! Our range of ethnic dishes is extensive and meets all tastes and budgets and all our wedding food is cooked to the moment and beautifully presented. We also offer complimentary Menu Tasting evenings to our couples who book a bespoke wedding. This is an opportunity for couples to see, taste and rate over 30 of our signature dishes and is a hugely helpful for couples choosing their menu for their big day.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We strive to offer faultless exacting service paired with a warm, genuine and flexible approach ensuring couples are able to realise their dreams for the most important day of their lives in a beautifully unique and secluded setting. Critical to our ethos, is our desire to achieve all this within a family-run, home-grown, eco-friendly environment. We aim to be as self-sufficient as absolutely possible with home-grown, seasonal food, grown using organic principles, headlining our delicious wedding breakfast menus, all lovingly created by our in house team of chefs and ensuring that the most important meal of our couples’ lives is a truly exceptional one.
