We love when our clients send us feedback, it makes all the effort so worthwhile for our staff and owners alike. Reputations are hard to forge and easy to lose. We are delighted that now, in our tenth year, nearly half of our enquiries are by word of mouth.

You can read our recent Thank You’s below, or take a look back at previous years.

Well where do I start, I have to say the service from start to finish was amazing in every way. They really looked after us and were on top of everything though out. The food was to die for I just wanted more and more. The setting was lovely and just perfect for anyone looking for a beautiful wedding venue. I would like to thank everyone for making the day amazing and thank again for such a lovely day.

Carlie Homer (Wedding Guest), 15th August 2017

As part of a band that played there, for a wedding, I must commend their attention to detail, with a separate dance floor that had automated disco lighting, very good ventilation, and all the necessary accessories to install a sound system.

The staff were all on hand for a smooth running of the day’s activities with an easy and calm disposition.

Having played hundreds of wedding venues I can confirm this was one of the best.

Ian Patrick Harris, 5th August 2017

AMAZING! Supportive, helpful & caring.

Mark Bavington, 4th August 2017

A huge thank you from Hayley Bavkins and I for making our wedding day the best day of our lives and one we will never forget. Special mention to Alli… Amazing, helpful, calm yet forceful with the ushers when needed! We felt as if you were fully committed to us and personally cared that we could relax and enjoy the day. Alli is a fantastic asset to South Farm. Many thanks once again.

Mark & Hayley Bavington,

We got married here on Saturday and had the best day. South Farm run a really slick operation and nothing is too much for them (including sending someone to Royston to get more helium when ours ran out). Special thanks go to Alli, our planner for the day who was amazing. Professional, friendly, calm, she made our day so much easier. Thanks everyone for the best day of our lives and anyone who is thinking about South Farm for their venue just do it, you won’t regret it.

Keith Allen Slater, 29th July 2017

Hi Alli,

We are currently in California on our honeymoon but wanted to thank you again for Saturday.

The whole South Farm team was excellent but you were amazing. You made our day so much easier with your friendly, professional and extremely calm manner. So many people commented on how in control and calm you were.

We fell in love with South Farm the first time we came to look round and you delivered, it was the best day of our lives! We’ll be seeing you again at your open evenings!

Thanks again!

Keith & Sam,

We just wanted to express our absolute gratitude for how hard everyone worked to make our day so perfect.

Thank you!

Best wishes

Stephen & Rachel, 27th July 2017

We had the most beautiful and fantastic wedding day, many thanks to South Farm for; the wonderful venue, the delicious food, and the flawless running of the day! If I could do 10 stars on Facebook I would!

Emily Oliver, 20th July 2017

We got married here on the 17th July 2017…and absolutely loved it!!!

We only looked at two venues and this was the first… The second made us realise it was perfect so why continue looking… We knew it was an amazing venue and the atmosphere would be good but nothing prepared us for how incredible the day would actually be!!

The venue is stunning for us outdoor and nature enthusiasts it’s perfect and helped us created that rustic charm we wanted perfectly… The sun shone for us and we had the wedding we dreamed off. The venue is stunning and looked after with so much care, love and attention to detail… There’s lots of different areas to utilise and wow your guests with…

The staff are so helpful and friendly… Our wedding planner Helga was so lovely and remained calm and helpful no matter what (even if the groom and his men run late due to the difficulties of tieing a bow tie…haha!)

The food from start to finish was delicious from the dinner to the breakfast… It was outstanding and all the guests were complimentary of it!

We just love this place so much and want to relive it already! Highly recommend it! It’s pretty special!

Sally & Peter Conway xx, 17th July 2017

Hello Helga,

We had the bestest day and you were amazing! Can’t thank you enough!

Carmel xx, 13th July 2017

To all at South Farm,

Carol & I want to thank you so much for making the wedding of Julie & Peter such a wonderfully memorable occasion. Everything about the venue was perfect.

Emily couldn’t have done more to guide us through – please thank her from us. Chris Jennings the MC was delightful. The catering was superb – the best hog roast (and crackling) we’ve ever tasted. Of course to cap it all off the weather was glorious. It was the perfect day in every sense.

Once again thank you so much for everything you did on Saturday. It was a wonderfully perfect day which we will never forget.

Yours sincerely,

Dave & Carol Green, 8th July 2017

Dear Emily,

WOW!  Pete and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone at South Farm but especially you, you made the day run seamlessly and everything was perfect.

We can’t tell you how much we enjoyed ourselves and how lovely all the staff were.  Our guests were bowled over by the farm and all the little touches that made it so special, the canapes were delicious and the hog roast was amazing! 

You really did pull out all the stops to make our day perfect and we just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for all your hard work.   

We will see you soon, take care.

With love from


Julie & Pete xx, 8th July 2017,


We had such a lovely day, it was everything we hoped it would be. A big thanks to Helga also as she was great on the day.

Kind regards,

Hannah and Amy, 5th July 2017

Hey Alli,

We are now back from our mini moon & I just wanted to send you a note to say a HUGE thank you from Liam and I.

We had the most amazing day and loved every moment of it. Everything ran so smoothly and I know that doesn’t happen without a brilliant Event Manager – you!!

Thank you for all your hard work on the day & the constant emails in the lead up to it. Even organising the tandem bike with my Dad (I still can’t believe that happened!!).

You have been an absolute star & it was lovely to finally meet you on the day!!

Thanks again,

Chloe, 30th June 2017

Hi Helga,

Greetings from a very rainy Phuket!! 🙂

We had the most wonderful and magical wedding day at South Farm and both want to thank you and all the team for making it so special and run so smoothly!

All of the guests have said how amazing the wedding was and how beautiful the venue, how delicious the food was and how attentive the staff were – lots have also said it was the best wedding they have ever been to! 😀

Honestly, it was just perfect and Jonny and I wish we could do it all over again! 🙂

Best wishes and thanks again for everything – our wedding day was just what we had hoped for and wanted – it was a dream 🙂

Emma and Jonny xx, 18th June 2017

Firstly, on behalf of myself and Veronica, we would like to say a really big thank you to all the team at South Farm, everything was wonderful and the team worked hard on the day to make the girls wedding a very memorable day. All of our guests loved everything. I would really like to say a huge thank you to the kitchen staff also as they worked very hard to produce amazing food in very hot conditions.

Thanks again


Dave Girling, 14th June 2017

To Everyone at South Farm,

A very big thank you from the Garden Committee of the Red Cross for organising a really spectacular evening for us all.

Everything was perfect – the setting, the food and drink, the weather & the music – you’d all worked so hard to put on a wonderful evening for everyone to enjoy. Thank you so much.

Thanks to you all we made £1,600 which is really great and such a help for local causes!


Eleanor Sclater, 13th June 2017

To the finest squadron of organisers ever assembled,

Whilst I’m sure and hope, that you superheroes are bombarded with thank you messages on an almost hourly basis, I just wanted to take a moment for Sarah and I to extend our gratitude.

I was tempted to describe South Farm and the amazing folks who work there as a well-oiled machine, but that strips away all the beautiful human qualities that are in your business at its core.

The way you all made my wife (YES!) and I feel so so special is a sentiment I’ll never be able to properly communicate.

Every single email or phone request we sent you, of which there were probably thousands, were dealt with the level of  kindness I’d expect from an old friend. You coped with the challenging personalities of my family in a way we are yet to master!

Last Saturday we felt like the venue had been built for us, and we would be the only people to ever marry there.

A key message our guests relayed to us (who also all felt like rock stars) was that the tone of the venue was just perfect. You tread the line between elegant, relaxed and yet welcoming so magnificently, in fact almost as well as my wife!

I want all of you to win the lottery, so you get to feel the same rush of magic that we felt as a South Farm Bride and Groom.

I’d just recommend one small change to your setup if I may be so bold. Please alter your tag line from “Distinctly Different” to “Head and Shoulders Above Anywhere Else on the Entire Planet.”

Huge amounts of love all of your team,

Jules & Sarah, 10th June 2017

As Mum of the Groom I can’t say a big enough “Thank You” for the wonderful wedding we attended on 10th June 2017 at South Farm.

Everything was perfection: the weather, the ceremony, the music, the food, the entertainment, the general atmosphere….

Your staff were stunning! Efficient, friendly, helpful (I lost jewellery which was found), cheerful and smiling; nothing was too much trouble.

Your venue was breath-taking in the sunny weather. The little ones loved the animals and the older ones could sit in peace if required without being left out of anything.

Everyone who attended had the highest praise for the day.

What more could we ask?!

I am only sorry I have no more children left to get married!

All good wishes,

Jill M Hepple, 10th June 2017,

To all the wonderful staff at South Farm,

We just wanted to drop you an email after our wedding day on Friday to say what an absolutely incredible day we had. The best of our lives! We are very grateful to South Farm for everything – for the amazing pre-wedding communication, seamless on the day running of the event, delicious wedding food, wonderful thoughtful staff working on the day as well as the lovely, never intrusive, Jane managing the event! We had so many comments about the beautiful venue, food and flow of the day.

Thank you so so so so very much!

With best wishes,

Charlotte and Tim, 26th May 2017

We got married at South Farm in May 2017 and really cannot recommend the venue more highly. The thing we particularly loved about South Farm is how intimate our wedding felt despite the grounds very comfortably being able to cater for our 120+ guests with its extensive beautiful gardens and stunning barns!

The communication in the lead up to the day was 5*, we felt like we were sending millions of questions but nothing phased South Farm and they responded so quickly. The food was exceptional and the South Farm chefs were great at accommodating our menu request of personalised pies (thank you!).

A particularly big thank you to Alli for showing us around initially and for all her helping on email on the lead up to the day and also to the lovely Jane who was our Event Manager, so calm and helpful. You truly helped us to have the best day of our lives and make many happy memories!

Thank you.

Charlotte & Tim,


I will write to you, but for now I just want to say a big thank you (although I’m not sure it’s enough!)

Our dream for our wedding was to have a relaxing, stress free, fun & memorable day with our closest family & friends.

So many people told us on the run up to our wedding that it was unrealistic & would inevitably end up stressful & with a load of hick ups that we couldn’t foresee. However thankfully they were wrong.

Thanks to you & the whole team, for Dan & I Wednesday was absolutely perfect. We wouldn’t change a single moment & I know how hard you must have worked because I didn’t have to do a single thing! You (and Chris!) had everything sorted and we couldn’t thank you more.

Like I say I will write but as we are off on our honeymoon it won’t be for a few weeks and I didn’t want you to think we weren’t really really grateful because we are!

Love Emma xxx, 24th May 2017

When we first looked around South Farm it was a bleak windy November day but even then we could tell we had found something special. The venue itself is stunning and received so many compliments from our friends and family. The staff have been so helpful in helping our wedding day run as smoothly as it did and we honestly from the bottom of our hearts know we made the right choice coming here. Thank you!

Hannah Taylor, 22nd May 2017

Hello Emily,

We wanted to say to you and the entire team who helped with our wedding yesterday a heartfelt thank you.The venue itself had the most amazing comments from guests and everyone has been so helpful! The service and friendliness of everyone yesterday made it for us the magical day it was so thank you x

Hannah Lucas, 22nd May 2017,

Hi Helga

Thank you so much to yourself and the whole team for giving us such a wonderful wedding day! It was more than we could have ever imagined and that was down to you and the venue.

We have received countless compliments on the venue – it really doesn’t compare to anywhere else!

Thanks again,

Amanda & Jack, 20th May 2017

Hi Summer & Becky,

Thanks again for a wonderful day.

We thought that the whole day ran like clockwork. The staff were super friendly, not invasive at all and they made it a real pleasure. The staff also seemed to be really enjoying the service which transmits so positively to the guests. Everyone said how wonderful the food was, too!

Overall we absolutely loved it, as did all of our guests, and I can’t thank you enough for all of your support in making it such a magical occasion.

We’d recommend South Farm to absolutely anyone.

Best wishes,

Rafi & Sophie, 14th May 2017

My son, Rafi, got married at South Farm last Sunday 14th. It was an amazing occasion made extra special by the fact that every aspect of the venue was perfect, the setting, the food, and the attention to detail. Becky was simply wonderful, everything was done perfectly and without any fuss. Thank you so much.

Sara Cooper (Groom’s Mother), 14th May 2017,

Dear South Farm,

Thank you so much for helping to make our day really special! Everyone was great from start to finish, but especially Alli, who ran the wedding day seamlessly, as if it was her own! Nothing was too much of an ask, and she accommodated all of our last minute requests. You guys truly were amazing and we were so lucky to have all of your help!


Adam & Becca, 7th May 2017

I have been meaning to review for a while – we just received a 1st anniversary card from South farm which is a lovely touch and reminds us of the fantastic job everyone played on the day. South Farm is such a beautiful and peaceful venue with amazing food, super friendly staff and friendly animals! We couldn’t recommend South Farm more x

Louise Jenkins, 6th May 2017

We got married at south farm on the 6th of May and would absolutely recommend the venue a million times over. From our first look round, through every step of the planning (thanks Emily and Alli) to the day itself (thanks Letty!) everyone was incredible helpful, and helped us create a perfect day, just exactly how we wanted it.

The team were happy to help make any of our requests happen, answered my many, many questions and helped us every step of the way meaning the whole planning process wasn’t at all stressful. The day itself ran perfectly but in the most natural and relaxed way. Thank you everyone at South Farm, we have so many special memories to treasure for years to come.

Alice Gregory, 6th May 2017,

Hi Helga,

We had the most brilliant day thank you so much – Terri was incredible and all staff on the day were so attentive. We couldn’t have hoped for a better day!

Best wishes,

Josie, 29th April 2017

Hi Alli,

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for yesterday. We had the best day and both you and Helga were so helpful and made it so easy for us. South Farm is an unbelievable venue and everyone absolutely loved everything about it.

Elliot & Hayley, 26th April 2017

Hi Summer,

Thank you so much for your email.

The day exceeded all our expectations and there was absolutely nothing we would change. You guys are awesome!

Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and how friendly and helpful the staff were, so thank you to everyone there for making it so perfect!

Sue x, 22nd April 2017

Hi Helen & Alli,

I just wanted to thank you both and the whole team at South Farm!

We had a brilliant day, thanks Helen for your patience and hard work during the day! Everything ran smoothly and everyone had an excellent time thanks to your hard work!

Alli, thanks also for all your help during the build up! That helped a lot to make sure everything went well.

Craig and I (and all of our guests) had such a memorable day. All of you staff were brilliant and all of our guests commented on how good the venue was!

Thank you!

Clare & Craig, 14th April 2017

Hello South Farm,

Jay and I would like to thank you for a wonderful day – it was absolutely perfect and ran so smoothly. All staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and professional, especially Helga who was super calm and kept me relaxed most importantly in the morning! There was always someone nearby to help when needed but didn’t intrude.

We were fortunate enough to have nice enough weather for the ceremony to be outside which we were so pleased about and the setting was just stunning. The umbrellas and blankets were a lovely touch and thank you for the bottle of bubbly in our bridal suite.

The food was delicious and timed perfectly to tie in with having the speeches first. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone and neither would any of our guests – they couldn’t speak highly enough of the venue or team!

Thank you for answering our many questions in the lead up to the day and for allowing us to visit when we needed and stay/set up the night before which was such a treat for myself, my sister, mum and auntie and meant I could look forward to the day even more the night before!

Finally, all of the suppliers (recommended by you or not) were wonderful – I will be emailing them all personally but would like you to know that we were 100% happy with them all including those from your website.

I will get round to leaving a lovely review on your Facebook page very soon as I’m sure some family and friends will too!

Kind regards

Mr & Mrs Newell :), 12th April 2017


Please pass our heartfelt thanks on to Emily, Helga & the rest of the team for such a fantastic day on Thursday!

Everything ran like clockwork and we didn’t want for a thing.

All of our guests commented on how fantastic the service and venue were.

Many thanks for giving us such a fantastic day!

Lauren & Tom, 6th April 2017

We had 28 kids at our wedding ranging from 3 months to 15 years with mostly 3-4 year olds. The venue was absolutely perfect for this. It had just the right amount of indoor and outdoor space to keep everyone occupied and entertained. We set up the Horse Barn as a kids play area which, with the blinds open between rooms, meant that parents could see their children while still dancing away in the Old barn.

Everything was managed so professionally in the build up to the wedding and the team (notably Emily & Alli) were so accommodating and willing to find ways of making some of my more ‘interesting’ requests happen.

Having the event manager on hand (Becky) just took all the stress of the day away (and using the services of Chris Jennings as the MC certainly helped keep everyone organised). The Tuk Tuk rides for the kids during drinks reception and coffee were inspired and very much appreciated by children and parents alike!

We chose ‘sharing’ food and everyone thought it was amazing – having the ‘carver’ at the table got everyone chatting and giggling. A number of our guests have commented that it was the best wedding they have ever been to (including their own!) – now much of that was down to me (of course!) but the venue was the truly stunning part of the day. I shed a tear driving down the blossom-framed driveway, as did many of my guests.

Thank you South Farm.

Sharon Elliott, 4th April 2017

Hi Becky,

We had a fabulous day on 1st April- the sun was shining so brightly!

You had asked me to provide feedback. I have now had a chance to gather my thoughts and chat to guests and I have some points.

A number of guests have commented on how lovely and organised Emily was. I know she is fairly new, it must be such a tough job to get large groups of people moving in the right places but she seemed to manage it in a calm and very polite way. She also came up with the idea to hang the table plan and this looked really cool, and she did it for us too 🙂 We also had a hilarious moment in the Bridal Suite pre registrars which I am sure wouldn’t have been she will be asked to do often!!

Beau Di was brilliant, he found everything we had misplaced, cake stand etc. He came out to say goodbye and was just so polite and friendly. A great asset.

My bridesmaid Catherine commented on how lovely Sarah was on the morning prep. I also found this on the day I dropped our corkage wine off.

Any additional staff I have missed have always been so quick to respond to emails/ calls from me and always so lovely.

Food- amazing! All of my guests have commented that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Breakfast also fantastic. I wish I had thought to get up earlier though to sort out the hire items and my personal items that were packaged up for me in the horse barn as I could have kept going at that buffet!

Rooms- the recent décor updates were beautifully done. We just wished we could have stayed for longer 🙂

Thanks so much for an awesome day! We loved the venue, the animals, the staff, the food, everything! I knew for a long time I wanted to get married at South Farm, you have a stunning venue. I just now want to be invited back as a guest of someone else!

Lynsey & Dave, 1st April 2017

31.03.2017, what an amazing day we had celebrating our wedding. The sun came out to play which let us have our dream ceremony in the Summer House and allowed a brilliant flow for the guests around the property. We couldn’t have asked for more from the South Farm team. Everyone was excited about the food which was amazing on the day and at breakfast.

Our planner on the day Helen did a great job of being there without being noticed. I think they are taught ninja skills. We could not offer enough praise to South farm. Thank you for making our day the best day ever.

Claire & Stuart, 31st March 2017

Hi Helen,

Claire and I just wanted to thank you for all that you did for us Friday to make our day run smoothly and be a great day. We have had so much positive feedback about South Farm and how well it all went.

From our perspective the day was perfect and you and the team made that happen.

We cannot thank you all enough.

Best wishes,

Claire & Stuart, 31st March 2017,

Alex and I got married at South Farm on the 30th March this year and words cannot express how amazing the day was from start to finish. We actually live in the midlands so our guests were all asking what made us choose it as our venue, but as soon as they all arrived, every single person could see why!

The grounds, the buildings, the food, the animals, the ethos. Everything was just what we wanted from a venue and although it was only the second one that we looked at, we knew we didn’t need to look anywhere else.

The comment that keeps coming up again and again is how relaxed the whole day was, and how this atmosphere made the guests enjoy the day even more. This is because the whole team work so well together, seamlessly communicating throughout the whole day making life a dream for the Bride and Groom!

Although all of the staff we have come into contact with have been excellent, Alli was our coordinator on the day and our main point of contact leading up to the wedding. We were both so impressed with her efficiency, professionalism and attention to detail on the day and during all the correspondence beforehand. She is a real credit to the venue.

We would 100% recommend anyone to get married at this fantastic place, no request or alteration is too much.

We are so glad we found it and would love to relive our day all over again!! Thank you South Farm for making our wedding the best day of our lives so far!

Amy Beck, 30th March 2017

To Alli,

Well, where do we even start? You are amazing!!

We were so blown away by how fantastic our wedding day was, and it really wouldn’t have happened without you! From months before you have been a click away; always answering our questions and requests within a day – if not hours. You made all of the planning so easy and exciting which I’m well aware is not always the case!

We were so glad it was you who was our Events Manager. It really just put the cherry on top of our cake. You were absolutely fantastic throughout the entire day, sorting everything out without us even realising it, and always making sure we had a drink to hand!

You just slipped into the background ensuring everything was going smoothly but your hard work and attention to detail did not go unnoticed by Alex and I, or our guests.

Also, thank you so much for accommodation my friend’s Mum and her new born baby – it made her day so much more enjoyable.

South Farm is an incredible venue – a truly well oiled machine. We could not have asked for a better day and are eternally grateful.

Lots of Love,

Amy & Alex xxx,

Incredible venue, staff were magnificent and accommadation was spot on, the food was plentiful and very tasty

I would definitely recommend this as a top wedding venue.

Kevin Barnes (Groom’s Father), 29th March 2017

I was a guest at my Sister’s wedding. What an amazing venue, so beautiful and we all had an amazing day. I also stayed at the farm and the rooms are gorgeous!

Lauren Hayfield (Bride’s Sister),

We got married here on 27th March 2017 and it was absolutely perfect! From the venue, to the food, to the staff, everything was outstanding!

The venue is absolutely beautiful, our two young boys especially liked the pigs and sheep! Everyone on the day commented on how delicious the food was, in the day time and evening. The staff really helped make the day as perfect as it was, excellent customer service skills and they all went that extra mile to accomodate our needs.

Very special thanks to Emily our coordinator for the day, I would have been lost without her! From her keeping me informed with everything that was going on to getting me a glass of water before I walked down the aisle!

Also thanks to Alli for keeping in touch before the big day through email, despite us being difficult to get hold of and the last minute plan changes!

Once again, thank you to all at South Farm, you have made sure we have wonderful memories of our wedding day to treasure forever!

Samantha Elkington, 27th March 2017

We got married here on 26.03.17 and can honestly say it was the best day of our lives! South Farm is an amazing venue and truly did us proud on the day! The day ran so smoothly without a hitch and everyone was so helpful and friendly! The timings of the day was impeccable and the food was outstanding! All our guests keep asking where we found the venue and how delicious the food was! One guest has said that he will be bringing his daughter back to look at the venue!

We only looked at two venues and knew this was the one! All our other venue viewings were then cancelled! If we could, we would do it all over again and that is purely down to the venue and staff that made our day!

We would like to say a special thanks to Alli who was there via email to help organise the day and answer any queries. Helen was our allocated event manager on the day and was truly brilliant. She was so calm, reassuring, organised and professional. She ensured everything was done when it should be and treated us like royalty!

This venue is run like a well-oiled machine and you can tell they are top class in the wedding field. Although they do weddings every day, you are still made to feel as though your wedding day is the most important!

The venue was spotless and the rooms were immaculate. You’d never know there was a wedding held there the day before!

Again would like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the day a truly magical and memorable one! Without you, we wouldn’t have had the day we did! We truly believe no other venue can compare to this!

All our love,

Steve & Katie Thomas x, 26th March 2017

Me and Arron got married here on the 24th March 2017 and we can honestly say that it was one of the most amazing days of our lives.

As soon as we set eyes on this beautiful venue we just knew that it was the place for us. Everything about it is so beautiful and each and every member of staff are truly amazing at what they do. From the moment we booked, contact was spot on, with emails and meetings so we always knew what was happening. On the day we were looked after by Helen who was amazing! She was always making sure we had everything we needed and made sure the day ran smoothly. We really can’t thank her enough for this! The food is just out of this world 🙂 the chefs really do know how to put together the most mouth watering dishes.

So thank you to all of you wonderful people at South Farm who helped make our day special, we really do appreciate it 🙂 xxx

Charlotte Eastman, 24th March 2017

I would recommend this wedding venue to anybody planning their big day. The whole experience from start to finish was exceptional. The venue is stunning, the food was delicious, the staff are professional and slick, the wedding day was absolutely brilliant due to the amazing planning of it all, thanks to both Becky and Alli. We cannot thank you enough for making the day perfect for us! A truly amazing experience.

Libby Hinton, 18th March 2017

Hello again Alli,

Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you, to you and everyone else involved.

That place of yours and the way it works is something to be proud of.

My daughter’s wedding was a pleasure to be part of.

Gary Curshen (Father of the Bride),

Hello Alli,

I cannot thank you enough for yesterday and the whole run up – it was an absolutely brilliant day and even more amazing than expected! Thanks for calming me just before the ceremony too! – I was an emotional wreck walking down the aisle!! – I cannot thank you enough xx


Alli, Helen, Rebecca, Christine, James and the countless others at South Farm – you made our day PERFECT!!

We knew South Farm was our venue from the moment we drove up. You made everything so seamless, perfect and easy for us. Since the wedding, we’ve had so many compliments about how stunning and intimate South Farm is, how delicious the food was (the poached pear was to die for!) and how brilliant and accommodating you were to everyone.

Alli, you’ve spent months answering every single question we have, helping us make decisions and inspiring us when we found ourselves at a loss. Most importantly, you were the swing vote which got me the Jurassic Park theme music playing as we left the ceremony – our guests all LOVED it.

Jane, you made the evening magical by smoothing out every single thing that came up. For anyone planning a wedding, you’ve already made the right decision to consider South Farm as your venue – we’d now encourage you to make the best decision of your lives by booking your big day with them.

Shalini & Vinny, 4th March 2017

Choosing South Farm to be our venue was honestly one of the smartest decisions we’ve made, I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed the day! Our guests were so impressed by everything, and our special thanks to Alli, Helen, Rebecca, James, Christine and the countless others who work so hard for each and every wedding.

Our special thanks also to the chefs, the dishes they create are absolutely amazing, we are still getting compliments about the food. And finally, thanks to your staff serving various food and drink and those who keep the rooms immaculately clean – what a fantastic bunch of friendly and professional individuals.

Best wishes,

Shalini & Vinicius,

Just a quick note to say thank you so very much for the terrific tasting evening! It was a wonderful showcase of the amazing work you do and the whole experience gave us every assurance that we have picked the perfect venue for us.

Your friendly and relaxed approach, while having such a complex event running (and running so smoothly!) was inspiring and a joy to be a part of. I have no doubt our guests will have an equally fantastic time in the Summer!

Thanks a million times to everyone who contributed and made the tasting evening such a delightful experience.

Melanie & Joe, 3rd March 2017

We would like to thank you for such a lovely party, we both really enjoyed it as I am sure everyone did. The food was delicious, excellent service, everything was perfect.

It is such a wonderful venue, I can understand why it is so popular for weddings.

An evening we will both remember for a long time.

Thank you,

Dear Alli & the South Farm Team,

A big ‘Thank You’ for all of your help and hard work making our wedding day the best day of our lives!

We were blown away by your professionalism, kindness and willingness to go above and beyond – we are truly grateful.

Alli, you were BORN to be a wedding planner and are one of the nicest people we’ve ever met.

All our thanks,

Holly & Will (The Hills), 18th February 2017

It has been an amazing day! Thank you to everyone for all their help. The food was amazing! The staff were brilliant and very helpful to everyone. Big thank you to Emily for being the star of the day!

Dear Becky,

How on earth do we put into words how impressed we are with you and the South Farm team?!

Your unique blend of professionalism and warmth made us look forward to working with you at every stage, and gave us total confidence that the day would be fab. And it was! It surpassed all our (high!) expectations – we had such a wonderful time, and have received so many compliments on the venue over the past few days. All the staff were fabulous (the waiter congratulated us when he came to serve the top table which was so sweet), the whole day was super slick and the relaxed vibe (despite how much hard work was going on behind the scenes) was very impressive.

The food was, as always, amazing. We overhead people saying it was the best kosher food they’d ever tasted. Please also tell Matt that I made sure to try the new recipe lychee ice and it was delicious!!

I’m not sure if we ever told you, but we chose South Farm because of you. There were other venues that were as pretty, but none of them had a Becky 🙂  We most definitely made the right choice. The run up to the big day, and the day itself, were calm and relaxed – we were sure that irrespective of what we were planning, you would make sure the event ran like clockwork and that everyone would have a lovely time. Plus, on a personal level, we think you’re just wonderful (I have a serious competency crush!) – it felt like having another friend at the wedding.

So a huge thank you, to you and your fabulous team!

We’ll miss you!

Very best,

Dear South Farm,

Many thanks to all your staff for helping to make my Son’s wedding day such a happy occasion!

You obviously all work very hard to maintain high standards, and the thought and preparation that went into the day ensured that everything ran smoothly and made it so enjoyable for bride and groom and their guests. The food was delicious, and it worked very well having the fruit pies instead of a wedding cake.

You have a superb wedding venue, and we thought that the addition of the dance floor area (which was in progress when we visited a year ago) was fantastic.

A fabulous and memorable day – thank you.

Dear Alli, Helen and everyone at South Farm,

We can’t thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding day as perfect as it was, we had so much fun! From the first day we came to look around, through the whole planning process and the seamless work of all of the staff on the day, you have been faultless. Special thanks to Alli for answering our numerous questions ahead of the day and making us feel like the only people you were dealing with, even though we’re sure you answer the same questions day in and day out! Also, thank you to Helen for your professional, kind and efficient running of the day, particularly as we know you weren’t feeling well. My parents would also like to pass on their gratitude for upgrading them to a room in the house, which they appreciated very much!

I can’t count the number of our guests who commented on how much they loved South Farm and the food in particular! One guest said the pie was the best dessert she had ever had – not even the best pie..the best dessert! You have really thought of everything to make the day easy, from the music facilities in the Bridal Suite, to the iPad for the lighting in the Horse Barn and the lovely touch of a bottle of fizz waiting in our room at the end of the evening.

Once again, our sincere thanks.

Very best,

Cat & Kevin Ledger,

Dear everyone at South Farm,

Thank you so much for the perfect wedding day. We loved every single second and would not change a single thing.

We knew South Farm was the perfect venue for us the minute we arrived and felt so relaxed leading up to and even on the big day.

All our guests could not believe how smoothly everything ran, how good the food was and how beautiful the venue was.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Dear Becky, James & everyone at South Farm,

Arthur & I would like to thank you all so much for the wonderful experience of getting married at South Farm.  It really is a unique venue and the support and care you provided us since we booked our wedding up to and including the ceremony itself was amazing.  It felt like nothing was too much trouble for you, including collecting the cakes stands on the wedding day itself!  The food was wonderful and I had wanted to go and thank everyone in the kitchen.  Can you please thank them for us.

We wish you all a very happy 2017.

With best wishes

Frances & Arthur, 2nd January 2017
