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.

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!

Mr & Mrs Milton, 14th February 2017

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!

Anna and Aaron xx, 12th February 2017

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.

Cat & Kevin Ledger, 4th February 2017

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.

Mr & Mrs Ledger (Mother & Father of the Groom),

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!

Frances & Arthur, 2nd January 2017


Just a quick note to say thank you so much for making our wedding day so special, and a total triumph! We had an absolutely fantastic day, it really couldn’t have gone any better, and you were great at smoothing out all the little niggles that popped up during the day.

Please thank all the staff for us- from those that showed us round, the people that helped us at the planning meetings, the staff there on the morning and all those working during the event, everyone was so well informed, polite and nice! It really made everything run so smoothly on the day, and added to how calm and relaxed we felt through the whole day.

Thanks also to the chef and all his team, the food was absolutely superb, and our guests certainly thought so too.

We couldn’t recommend you guys highly enough, and will certainly be spreading the word about what an amazing venue South Farm is, with a fabulous team.

Thanks again, all the very best to everyone at South Farm for a great 2017!

Pippa & Mark, 29th December 2016

I was a guest at Hayley & Will’s wedding reception at South Farm and I just wanted to say what a wonderful venue you have there.

The place itself, the food, the facilities, the great staff all made our celebrations really amazing. Thank you so much.

Pearl (Wedding Guest), 28th December 2016

I am writing to pass on our thanks for all the hard work that South Farm did to make our day as a family a very special occasion. Many would say that this is no more than should be expected when you pay for a service, but it is often the case that the ‘sell’ isn’t matched by the ‘delivery’. Whilst we said our thanks and goodbyes when we left, we wanted to tell you that we think that you have an excellent team.

From the outset we felt very comfortable with the people that we met, starting with Philip. The conversation about our wedding which was booked at quite short notice was warm and relaxed. Despite having seen a couple of other venues, we were drawn to South Farm from the outset; I don’t think that there was any doubt for either of us that yours was going to be the venue – apart from us trusting people that clearly do this everyday to help us make it happen.

We hadn’t really thought too much about the day itself until the tasting evening hosted by James and other members of the team. My goodness, I don’t think either of us have ever eaten so much! It was all so good, and our guests would have been happy with anything that you had served. Our expectations were surpassed, and having had people who weren’t at the wedding telling us about the food from people who were – well, it must be more than Wedding Day politeness!

We have had small dealings with many of your team, all of which do you an enormous credit. Special thanks must however go to Alli. We could not have done it without her, she did a wonderful job in supporting the planning – I am not sure that she got anything off us right first time, or even on time, but she was exceptionally patient and accommodating of us! On the day itself her presence and support were invaluable. Having not wanted the big wedding party she was a calm steadying hand throughout the day for us which was very reassuring. It is quite a skill to be able to blend into the background and be on hand when needed, she certainly struck the right balance for us. I still don’t know what she said to our daughter Violet before Vicki came down the aisle. Violet had been looking forward to the wedding as if it was her own, but lost a bit of her confidence at her crucial moment! Whatever was said, she bounced down the aisle with an uncontainable smile!

It was a thoroughly enjoyable day. Regardless of your beautiful venue and location, it wouldn’t have been a success without your very attentive team – the big reason we chose you in the first place.

Thanks from both of us!

Mike and Vicki, 27th December 2016

Dear Becky,

Thank you for making our day so special. You made planning the event easy when we live so far away. We had an amazing day as did all of our guests. It is a day we will never forget.

Kay & Charlotte, 22nd December 2016

We are just back from our honeymoon and wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at south farm for making our wedding such a special day! We have had so many comments from our guests on how lovely the venue was, how incredible the food was and how smoothly the day ran. Huge thanks in particular to Becky and Alli for being amazing throughout all the planning and to James and the whole team who worked so hard on the day. It was really perfect and we enjoyed it so much!

Jessica & Edward, 3rd December 2016

I wanted to send a big thank you all for the marvellous day you gave us for my daughter’s wedding. We appreciated the happy faces and excellent service every single one of you provided, it was excellent!

Rachel (Mother of the Bride),

Charlie and I just wanted to say a big thank you for helping make our day so special. South Farm was everything we’d hoped it would be and more. We are still on a high!

Please pass on our thanks to Helen who was so helpful and helped the day run so smoothly.

Thank you!

Victoria and Charlie, 28th November 2016

We absolutely couldn’t have wished for a better wedding reception than South Farm. All our family and friends are still commenting on how amazing the venue was and how little they noticed the staff – which is a great thing. The staff on the night were truly amazing and I would love to personally thank every single one of them. We really can’t think of a bad thing to feedback on, it was so special.

Thank you again for being so accommodating and personable to us as a couple. We will be recommending your venue to any newlyweds!

Charlotte and Michael, 20th November 2016

Thank you again to you Becky, Alli and all of the staff at South Farm! Our wedding day was perfect and ran without a hitch! We had the best time!

Thanks again for helping to create a magical wedding day for us!

Jo & Adam, 19th November 2016

We had an absolutely perfect wedding day, completely faultless from start to finish. South farm is a very special place and we were privileged to get married there, it is worth every penny. You and the rest of the team have been a pleasure to deal with since our first visit, you all work so hard and have made us feel like the only ones getting married there this year! Please pass our thanks to Helen who helped the day to run so smoothly! We have also had some lovely comments from our guests, particularly on the food and service.

Harriet & Jonny, 18th November 2016

To James and all the staff at South Farm,

Words cannot begin to describe our gratitude for the way in which our wedding has been handled from start to finish by all at South Farm; from the always polite and friendly replies to my never ending emails, the guys who helped us to set up and the amazing food and service our guests received on the day.

We have had so many compliments from friends and family on what a great day our wedding was – this was made possible by James and his team, their professionalism ensured that the vision for our day was executed perfectly (better than I ever imagined).

We found a few of our suppliers through your recommendations and this in itself is a testament to how well you “do weddings”, as they were just as fantastic as yourselves.

It really was our best day ever and we cannot thank you enough.

We picked South Farm as Busters sister Tuesday got married here also, I am now a “Dean” and Buster has a very large family, so we will definitely be recommending to the rest of them 🙂

Thank You again for making our dream wedding a reality!

Buster & Emma x

Emma & Buster, 12th November 2016

I cannot fault South Farm one bit – pure professionalism end to end. On the wedding day our wedding organiser (Helen) was so on the ball that she was always one step ahead and followed our plans to the letter. We were expecting great things from South Farm given feedback we had heard from other people, however they actually exceeded our expectations and we genuinely believe our day would not have been the same had we gone elsewhere. Venue and people that work here are truly excellent!

Helen & David, 11th November 2016

Dear South Farm,

Wow, what can we say? THANK YOU to the whole team for making our wedding such an incredible day that has created memories to last a lifetime.

South Farm was actually the first venue we viewed after getting engaged and we fell in love with it – we went on to view a number of other venues but after each one we would say ‘it wasn’t South Farm’. We knew that we had to secure a day with you and it seemed fate that this year the 5th November fell on a Saturday giving us a perfect theme and meant both our birthday’s were celebrated the following week during our honeymoon – and that date was available with you!

There are a number of people we would like to thank from James who we met at our first viewing all the way through to Becky who was our point of contact on the day and everyone in-between. I am sure you hear this a lot but the level of service you offer makes you stand out – some venues we contacted took days to get back to us and one even ignored us altogether! Nothing is too much for the staff, attention to detail was superb and you went to a lot of trouble just to make things happen. There were no problems at all and we were both able to be guests and enjoy our day rather than worry about anything at all.

You really do have a 10 out of 10 venue, 10 out of 10 staff and customer service/experience, 10 out of 10 food/drink….I could go on but I think you get the idea!

It’s a shame I won’t be able to re-live the wedding at South Farm again but I will sing your praises and wish you all the very best for your future growth which I believe is going to last a very long time and give you all great success.

Love Tim and Julie

Julie & Tim, 5th November 2016

We had the most amazing day! It was everything we hoped for and more.

Special thanks to Christine and Becky for their support in the lead up to our big day, and to Helen for her help in the smooth running on the day. The food fantastic too! We couldn’t have picked a better venue for our wedding.

Best Wishes,

Natalie and Simon

Natalie & Simon, 4th November 2016

We have been meaning to drop you an email for weeks now to say THANK YOU to yourself and all the team at South Farm who made Natalie and Simon’s day SO special and enjoyable!

Everyone had a fabulous time and just a pity the day flew by so quickly – we all said we could relive it any time it was just amazing!

So please pass on our thanks to everyone who was involved on the day,

Best regards

Vicki and Andre

Vicki & Andre (Mother & Father of the Bride), 4th November 2016,

Thank you so much for everything!

Martyn and I were married a week ago today and it honestly was the best day of our lives. Everyone at South Farm couldn’t have been more helpful, happy and go out of their way to perfect the little things you wouldn’t think of doing and they do it amazingly!! Alli was our planner for the day and she was amazing! Your venue is truly stunning and the people who work there make it outstanding.

We definitely chose the best venue and will never forget it! Thank you!

Hollie & Martyn Howes

Hollie & Martyn, 3rd November 2016

Dear Becky and all of the amazing staff at South Farm,

We just want to tell you how thankful we are to you all for looking after us on our wedding day.

It was absolutely perfect!

From the moment we arrived all of the staff went out of their way to be helpful and this went on until the moment we left after breakfast the next day.

We both felt completely in safe hands with Alli and Rebecca throughout the whole day, as soon as they introduced themselves I knew they had it all under control. We were so pleased that you opened the outside bar and encouraged guests to be outside as the weather was so amazing (this is something that we had not expected). All of our guests were so impressed by the grounds, food and organisation of the day. We just want to now be a guest at a South Farm wedding it experience it all again (we are encouraging my cousin to get it booked)! I even got to go in with the piglets which was my absolute dream! DJ Gary absolutely nailed it with his evening entertainment!

We cannot thank the South Farm team enough!

Steph and Oli, 29th October 2016

We had a mind-blowingly amazing experience – everything was magical and incredible and I can’t thank you all enough. Many people commented to us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The service was impeccable and we felt like royalty for a day, which was great fun. We were all extremely impressed with the level of service from your staff, the amazing food & drinks, the seamless running of the day and the beautiful rooms. We really thought Chris Jennings was fantastic too and the guests loved him. I wish we could do it all again and be guests at our own wedding to see it from that point of view! 🙂

Helen was fantastic and an absolute super star – it was so nice to have a straight talking level headed person there when required – again I can’t say thank you enough. It all feels like a dream now!

Thank you for making it our best day ever and for making the whole wedding planning experience such a pleasure. I still think the menu tasting day is a close second best day ever – I have never eaten so much amazing food in my life!

Best regards

Caroline & Adam Hickman

Caroline & Adam, 28th October 2016

We recently got married at South Farm in October and we’re so unbelievably happy with our day. To say South farm is a well-oiled machine is an understatement-everyone there is exceedingly supportive in ensuring the bride and groom have the day they want. No request was too much for them, whether it was in the form of answering the many emails prior to the big day to accommodating to last minute changes on the day.

Every guest we had said how polite each member of staff was and how they were very impressed with the food (a few quoted it to be the best food they have eaten at a wedding!) The accommodation was stunning, clean, spacious and had little touches which just made you feel even more special!

I personally would like to pass on the biggest Thank you to all at South Farm who helped tidy up at the end of the evening…it was a wonderful surprise to be able to enjoy breakfast without having to pack and faff around with decorations. I understand that would have taken a while to do so again, thank you.

We would like to pass on a huge personal thanks to Helen who was there for us throughout the day-She ensured we were taken care of throughout-which meant a lot to us.

We wish we could do our day again and we do have South Farm to thank for making our day magical.

Hopefully we can come back soon during your open garden season to relive being in such a wonderful place.

Keep up the amazing work everyone.

Alex and Mark Butterworth xx

Alex & Mark, 24th October 2016

Dear South Farm,

I just want to say a big thank you for the way you organised my grandsons wedding. Everything went off like clockwork. I would also like to thank the chef & staff for all the delicious food, especially the crème brulee, my favourite!

Thank you once again!

Mrs Doleman, 23rd October 2016

I wanted to say a massive thank you to south farm for holding such a perfect wedding for myself and rob. Jane & Rebecca were amazing on the day, and everything ran so smoothly. The day was best day of our lives, and all our guests have commented on how great the venue, staff and food was.

Sarah & Rob, 22nd October 2016

As Sarah’s parents we wanted to thank you all once again for such a wonderful wedding day last Saturday. Happily the weather was very kind and we were able to utilise the spectacular gardens at South Farm.  Our guests have been so complimentary about your venue and it could not have been bettered.  Thanks to Jane and her team the wedding ran smoothly, guests being seamlessly guided from one area to another as the day progressed.

The food was wonderful and the evening buffet was the best I have ever experienced, different, tasty and interesting and as much effort put into this as the main wedding breakfast.

We congratulate you all on running such a lovely venue.

A huge thank you to everyone.

Jane and Mike (Mother & Father of the Bride),

We would firstly like to thank James and the South Farm team for such a perfect day. It was more than what we could ever hoped for, James made us feel completely at ease throughout the day and took on any and all requests in his stride. All our guests have commented on how beautiful the venue and how incredible all the staff were. And it was fantastic that the team went out of their way to involve the kids in feeding time. When we receive our photos we will send some your way.

Thank you very much for everything.

Warmest regards

Elizabeth and Luke

Elizabeth & Luke, 16th October 2016

A slightly belated (but heartfelt!) thank you to you all for our wonderful wedding. We had such a fantastic day- the service was faultless & far beyond our expectations!

Alex & Susan, 14th October 2016

To everybody at south farm, Lee and I would like to thank you all for your hard work! We had an amazing day and couldn’t of asked for anything more. All of our guests had a brilliant day and have expressed how professional you all were and smoothly it is run. They all raved about the food too. Thank you again for making our day as special as it was!

Many many thanks!

Jade & Lee, 13th October 2016

To all the wonderful staff at South Farm

I apologise for the delay but would like to say a massive thank you for making my daughter’s wedding day so special. The entire day was beautifully organised and all your staff were so friendly and professional in everything they did. The food was exceptional, the catering and bar staff were superb and the special attention you paid to Lucie when she became over-whelmed by the whole day was outstanding.

I just wish I had more kids; I’d make sure they all got married at South Farm. Needless to say we are recommending South Farm to all our friends.

Keep up the good work!

Barry Williams (father of the bride), 12th October 2016

If you want to get married in an exclusive, beautiful and relaxing place with staff that will bend over backwards for you and make your day run with ease, then South Farm is the place. Mitchell and I cannot thank you enough for making our day perfect. Your venue is amazing and our family and friends could not stop commenting on how great everything was. Your staff are attentive and accomodating. Helen was an absolute star and was there for me at every moment, she could not do enough! You deserve more than 5*. THANK YOU! xxx

Lucie & Mitchell, 12th October 2016,

I thought I would send a quick message to say thank you to all the staff at South Farm. I was the magician performing at Kayleigh and Dave’s wedding and was my first event at your venue.

Everyone I spoke to were both incredibly professional, friendly and helpful and made yesterday one of the best events I’ve worked at in 10 years of performing.

Neil Edwards, 9th October 2016

Dear all at South Farm, especially our lovely event organiser Sophie!

We want to say a humongous THANK YOU from both of us! The day was everything we had imagined and much, much more. The venue is a dream and we have had so many lovely comments about South Farm. As the old saying goes about those who serve “Servants are not meant to be seen or heard, just to be there when needed and only leave the results of their serving”. Your staff where brilliant, they helped set up the day without being seen or heard, it was just done. My interaction with some of the staff was that of compliments about how amazing our wedding was – this reassurance really helped the day be stress free. Sophie, as mentioned in my speech, we can not thank you enough for everything you have done. You were with us from the very beginning to the end, was so friendly and made the organising of our Wedding so seamless.

Naomi & Ben, 8th October 2016

Dear South Farm,

We would just like to say a big ‘Thank You’ for the wonderful wedding we were able to provide for our daughter Naomi and new son-in-law Matthew.  Friends and family had a wonderful day and it is thanks to everyone from the groundsmen to the chef that everything ran like clockwork.

The staff at South Farm were so warm, obliging, friendly and unobtrusive as they worked around the clock to prepare and run things perfectly.  I hope that our appreciation will be passed on to the whole team.

Nigel and Claire White,

Thank you all so much for everything you did to make our day extra special. We really appreciate all the hard work and little touches that made our day perfect!

Mr & Mrs Goody,

To all at South Farm,

Although a little late, we felt we had to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) to express our thanks for such a wonderful day that you gave Sarah and Mike.

Everyone has commented on what a fantastic time they had and it seemed only right to pass the praise on to South Farm.

It seems wrong to thank any one person more than another as everyone on your team was so helpful, friendly, considerate, polite and professional. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble or a problem for them.

Becky was our event’s organiser for the day and she was amazing, she ensured the day went so smoothly anticipating what we needed almost before we realised we needed it ourselves and guided us, what seemed effortlessly, through the day.

Andy was the other member of staff that noticeably helped us out a lot and I think we may have caused him to stay late the night before, thank you Andy.

There is one other member of staff that we would like to say a thank you to…the chef. The food was gorgeous and we really did enjoy it but our extra thank you is for the bit you did “above and beyond” by “knocking up” a little royal icing so as the “bride” managed to stay seated on the wedding cake, thank you. It was the little extra thoughts like that and the care everywhere and from everyone that went to make this day so special. Sarah and Mike both kept saying “I don’t want the day to end”.

We could not recommend you enough. Thank you everyone at South Farm for a truly memorable day.

Kind regards,

Cheryl and Tony

Cheryl & Tony, 5th October 2016

To all at South Farm

The weather was nearly as good as the service my son and daughter in law received from each and every one of your staff.  It amazed me that you never saw any one of them and then ‘magically’ one would materialize at your elbow to help with whatever.  Obviously, and rightfully, they have confidence in their own ability and the product they represent

What a stunning day.  The following day everything was cleared and packaged up for us leaving us to enjoy a breakfast that was every bit as good as the meal the night before.

I would not hesitate to recommend your venue and service in the strongest terms possible.  We trusted you and you delivered beautifully.  Thank you so much!

A J Vincent (groom’s father), 3rd October 2016

Thank you all so much for helping us to have the most amazing day on Sunday 2nd October! It was everything we hoped for and more! Everyone was very complimentary on everything from the venue, to the food and of course the lovely staff! We wanted to say a huge thanks to Ali- She is amazing and a great asset to your incredible team!!

Lots of love,

Mr & Mrs Watts xxxx

Mr & Mrs Watts xxxx, 2nd October 2016

To all at South Farm, from the new Mr and Mrs Gannon, we wholeheartedly thank you for giving us a day to remember and cherish. From the moment we came for a site visit, to the minute we packed up the final box and said our goodbyes the morning after our big day – we received nothing but amazing, attentive service, support and advice and we could not have asked for more from a wedding venue. Your staff, your food, your grounds, your venue – all are first class and all our guests commented on how lovely it was. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone, and I only hope that all future couples are blessed with the same when they marry at South Farm. Thank you so much for giving us a great first day to married life

Mr & Mrs Gannon, 29th September 2016

Dear Becky and staff,

We just wanted to express our thanks to you and all the staff at South Farm for the fantastic service we received at the wedding of our daughter Karen to Nick, last Sunday 25th September.

Everything ran like clockwork, the quality of the food, the helpfulness of the staff and the fabulous venue itself made the day so memorable and one we will always cherish.

We cannot praise you enough, and the high quality of all the South Farm staff was reiterated by every one of our guests both on the day and subsequently.

We will not hesitate to recommend South Farm to anyone who is planning a wedding in the foreseeable future and very much look forward to revisiting you again as guest (and possibly hosts again) sometime soon.

Once again, please accept our most sincere and warmest thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Linda & Barry (Mother and Father of the Bride), 25th September 2016

I was going to email to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone at South Farm. We had the most amazing day on Sunday and it was very much down to you all. All our guests are still raving about how beautiful the venue was and how great the food was! The staff couldn’t do enough for us and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Becky, you were incredible – on top of everything, informing us where necessary but working tirelessly to ensure we didn’t need to worry about any of the details.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends and family and we really hope we’ll be a guest at a South Farm wedding in the near future.

Thank you again.

Karen & Nick,

We just wanted to email to say a huge thank you to everyone at South Farm who helped to make our dream wedding come true! We have had a crazy year planning the day and staff at South Farm really helped to make this easier. Thank you to Becky, Ali and Letty who always replied promptly to our emails and answered all our (many) questions while trying to organise the day. And of course thank you to Sophie, out event manager on the day, who worked hard to ensure everything went to plan. We had the most amazing day, and South Farm really was our dream venue. So many guests have said that it was the best venue they have been to. We have many happy memories there now and secretly hope that someone else gets married there we know so we can come back! We are currently enjoying our honeymoon and can’t wait to see our picture and video so we can relive the day!

Jess & Julien xxxx, 11th September 2016

Hi Sophie,

Firstly – thank you so so so much for helping to make our wedding day so wonderful. The whole process was an absolute joy, we both loved all the planning and preparation leading up to the day and everyone at South Farm was so incredibly helpful. Thank you for answering all our questions so promptly and being so patient!

The day could not have gone better! Helen was wonderful – so kind and organised, the rain did not matter one bit, the food was delicious and every single person commented on how beautiful South Farm is and how amazing the service was!

We knew from the start South Farm was the perfect place for us to get married and the day proved it. Matt and I could not have wished for a more perfect wedding.

Thank you again!

Emma & Matt x, 10th September 2016

We just wanted to say a massive thankyou to everyone for making our day so special and run so smooth all of our guests commented on the venue and food and staff saying how great it was, Jane in particular you were amazing yesterday even down to my pre ceremony panic when my handbag and purse were missing!

Annaleigh & josh, 3rd September 2016

We had an absolutely amazing day and loved every minute of it.

Helen was great on the day, even down to her putting Emma’s boots on for her as neither of us could bend over in our dresses. She kept us all to schedule without feeling intrusive.

All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and we were very lucky with the weather.

Thanks again.

Emma & Helen, 2nd September 2016

Thank you so much. We had the best day ever, even though it was a bit of a blur! All the staff at South Farm were great, and everything went soo well on the day. Our only wish would have been that the day lasted twice as long!

Thanks again.

Mark & Jo, 29th August 2016

Hi Sophie,

Thank you so much for everything you did for us and all the staff as well!! It was truly amazing, our family and friends are still talking about it and how they loved it! It was so special and you guys had a big part to play in that! We could never thank you enough!

We had the Wedding of our dreams because of your fabulous venue and flawless service!

Sophie you are incredible! And an amazing asset to South Farm!

All our thanks and love.

Naomi & Ben, 25th August 2016

Good Morning Sophie

You were the most perfect wedding planner for us – calm, organised and so friendly. It felt like every detail you’d thought about and checked to ensure all our guests were well looked after. We truly believe that without you it would’ve been different. Our guests commented on how incredibly lucky we were to have had such lovely staff from South Farm looking after us – and we agree. Thank you to you Sophie.

We would also like to say our appreciation for every member of the staffing team at South Farm. We had the wedding of our dreams and we wouldn’t change a single thing. The food was amazing…I’m convinced our guests will be talking about it for a long time (and using it for comparison in other places haha!).


Mr and Mrs Astarita xxxx, 21st August 2016


To you & all the staff at South Farm,

Thank you all so very much for the brilliant day you helped us create for our wedding. We couldn’t have done it without you. Every one of our guests complimented the venue.

Thank you again.

Kelly & Steve, 19th August 2016

The wedding was perfect! Such a happy day and so many great memories. We can’t thank you all enough.

Lois & Lexi, 15th August 2016

Hi Sophie,

We had a great day. Thank you so much for your organisation skills and ensuring everyone was in the right place at the right time and eating the right food.

Please pass on our thanks to all of the staff. The venue, the food and the accommodation was excellent and you even had the weather to perfection!

We will certainly recommend South Farm.


We had an absolutely fantastic day, as did our guests who are still buzzing about it. The food was excellent and we were thrilled with how the kitchen took our requests into account. Please do thank them again for us.

Mark, 14th August 2016

Thank you for everything Sophie. Helen and the team were phenomenal and we couldn’t have asked for a better day!

I couldn’t have imagined getting married anywhere else and you were all a dream to work with from start to finish.

Many thanks again.

Laura, 10th August 2016

I just wanted to say a huge, tremendous thank you to South Farm for making my wedding day on 10th August such an amazing day.

Everything went to plan, the sun was shining and the vegan food was fantastic. Thank you to your chef and staff for arranging it. It was lovely to show our friends and family that it’s not all about lentils and carrot sticks!

South Farm really does have a magical aura about it, I can’t quite put my finger on what it is, but I just love the place. My only regret is that I can’t do whole day all over again!

David and I had a lovely honeymoon touring around Bali for 2 weeks and are now back to earth with a bump.

Hopefully there will be forthcoming events at South Farm so we can see the place again.

Thanks again and hope to see you again sometime in the future.


Hi Becky

Thank you so much for making Sarah and Paul’s wedding so fantastic.  Sarah said part way through the day that she would not change anything and repeated this the following day. High praise.

Please pass in our thanks to James and all your other staff.

You gave us all amazing support and confidence in it all going perfectly.

Graeme & Sue, 6th August 2016

Dear Becky and all the team at South Farm,

We would like to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day even more perfect than we had imagined. We will always have such happy memories of south farm.

Becky, we would like to say a special thank you to you for all of your help on the day. You were a really calming influence in the build up to the ceremony and a big support throughout the day.

Sarah & Paul xx,

To all the team at South Farm,

Thank you to everyone that made our wedding such a happy & special day. All of our guests had a wonderful time & have commented on the fabulous food, venue and staff!

With very best wishes

Julia & Iain, 29th July 2016

It was lovely to have our wedding at South Farm and you made our day very special. Ali was fantastic on the day, we really appreciate all her help. All our guests thought that the venue and wedding was perfect!

Once again thanks!

PS: we wish we could get married again in the same place and repeat all over again 🙂

Gisela & Alan, 28th July 2016

Thank you for helping us organise such an incredible day. The entire team at South Farm were so helpful in the lead up to and on the wedding day, particularly Becky, our events manager who was amazing on the day.

Thank you very much.

Kirsten & Jonny, 25th July 2016

Our wedding was AMAZING!!! However, it did go way too quickly so we’d be happy to come back and do it all over again 🙂 Everyone commented on how wonderful South Farm is and a lot of our friends said they’d wished they’d had it as their wedding venue too. They also absolutely loved the wedding breakfast, especially how nice the feathered beef and pavolva were.

Thank you again for our perfect day. We may be back to see you on one of your open evenings…just for nostalgic reasons 🙂

Louise & Paul, 22nd July 2016

I felt I had to contact you and offer our sincere thanks to all staff for the truly wonderful service you gave at our daughter’s wedding on Thursday.  Everything was perfect, all the staff so attentive, friendly, helpful and efficient.  We were all so impressed and truly grateful.  South Farm will be highly recommended by all our family to any other couples looking for that perfect venue.  The setting is idyllic, the accommodation beautiful and comfortable, the animals adorable and in particular, Pickle was gorgeous !!! Thankyou each and every one of you for helping to make the day fabulous.

Linda & Phil, 21st July 2016

The day itself was amazing, exceeding our already lofty expectation.

The run up to the day with communications and meetings with Sophie and Letty was always a pleasure and incredibly helpful, accommodating and firm when we got carried away. ‎They certainly know their stuff.

We hadn’t met Helen before the day so we’re a little unsure. We had no need to be, she was on it all day, made everything ‎run smoothly and kept her calm throughout. She was just great. The lady on work experience was also wonderful, helping out and giving compliments at just the right times.

The venue was perfect. Kitchen staff extremely helpful and daring with our slightly troublesome cake. The food was declared by all as hands down the best they had ever had at a wedding (some actually left it at ever)!

External Suppliers – some recommended by you

Micky – really good and reasuringly knows the venue and how things run. We just let him get on with it (singing and DJ’ing).

Bella and the Beats – again really good. Filled the dance floor and we’re no trouble at all. Thoroughly recommend.

James Rouse Photographer – his second time at SF. He was beyond brilliant, everyone loved him and stayed way beyond what’s a reasonable time.

Time Bus – did all we asked. Again no problem, accommodating in doing an additional run to take me to the pub.

Thanks so much again.

Helena &‎ Scott, 15th July 2016

Dear Becky,

We really don’t know where to begin to thank you for such a wonderful wedding day for Charlotte and Dan.

From when we first visited South Farm, and fell in love with the unique and beautiful setting, you made us feel so special.

In fact, as I have mentioned numerous times, we felt as if we were the only family about to celebrate at South Farm. Every email and phone call was dealt with such professionalism, warmth and truly inspiring guidance.

On the day, we were so worried about the weather but you took all the uncertainty away from us and made the right decision that the ceremony should be in the barn rather than outside. How right you were and it was absolutely beautiful. As for the food and service, I can’t even begin to tell you how incredible it all was. Matt surpassed himself and the kosher food was the best I have ever tasted at any wedding or event. It was beautifully presented and in such generous quantity. All are guests are in total agreement and the feedback has been amazing! Even my son Jamie and his family who had the Hermolis meal were looked after so courteously too. Your staff were all absolutely brilliant!

The advice you gave me in choosing Dana our florist and Stephanie for the crèche was amazing. You really understood what we needed, interpreting fully our taste and needs. The flowers, settings and Chuppah were beyond amazing and the advice for the crèche meant that all the children had the best time as did their parents. All the extras such as the tents, bouncy castle, games etc were all organised on site with such efficiency too. Breakfast the following morning was delicious. Not only for our family and friends but also for Charlotte and Dan’s friends who were glamping.

You instilled confidence in us that this was going to be the best wedding ever and indeed it was.

So thank you, thank you Becky. We all had the best time!!!

Ilana & David, 11th July 2016

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank the staff at South Farm for making our first visit to South Farm such a pleasant and easy experience.

We work at different venues week-in-week-out, and have done for almost 20 years, and having a helpful and friendly venue really does make all the difference for us and, of course, ultimately, a better time for our mutual client.

From receiving such a quick reply to my email prior to the event, to the helpful assistance for Steve on the day from Andy, your bar manager, plus another younger member of staff, and even the owner of South Farm (sorry, Steve didn’t catch the names of the younger member of staff or the owner), the whole experience has been exceptional.

We really hope we get the opportunity to work at South Farm again in the future!

Until the next time!

Angela- Supplier, 8th July 2016

Hi Sophie and South Farm,

Myself and John would firstly like to thank you and the team at South Farm for being instrumental in the smooth running of the day and providing us with lots of amazing memories.

Please can you pass my thanks to the rest of the team as we have had so many compliments about the whole team including the kitchen on Sunday 3rd July – best quote was “He would give me his third arm if I asked for it” referring to the waiter the next morning at breakfast.

Many thanks to you as well Sophie. I couldn’t have done this without your calming presence which is much needed when I am panicking about small little details. I do not believe “no” or “cannot” exists in your dictionary as everything was accommodated and executed efficiently, professionally and adaptable when we overran with picture taking.

As a couple we had a fantastic time and this is with the great help of the lovely venue and everybody at South Farm. Not to say the least the guests were blown away with the grounds, food and efficiency.

We chose two suppliers from your recommended list with no regrets – Julie Cambridge flowers and Gary the DJ who we both thoroughly enjoyed working with. Julie’s flowers were spot on considering what little specification I gave her. We are really pleased to have chosen her from your list of recommended supplier as it was so easy from communication to her non-intrusive setting up in the morning. She listened to my requests and created something beyond my expectations.

DJ Gary’s set up was definitely value for money and proficient at all times. He was much liked by everyone!

Thank you for having us!

Jackie & John, 3rd July 2016

We had a truly magical day…everyone loved South Farm and we were just so pleased to be able to get married outside.

In terms of feedback, we really have been so impressed with the professionalism of your staff…very prompt responses to questions and very patient with my (sometimes protracted!) decision making and our last minute changes (e.g. Using the horse barn when previously not). The quality of the food and service was fantastic! All our guests loved the meal.  All the staff we dealt with were lovely, from the cleaners/gardeners to event managers and happy to help in any way…a credit to south farm. Overall I would say that South Farm is a stunning venue with top class food and service and I would definitely recommend it to any couples in the future. I loved visiting it before our big day from the fabulous tasting session to visiting with the florist and south farm were always very accommodating.

Thank you for all your help and well wishes.

Sarah, 1st July 2016

To Alli & the team,
A huge thank you from me & Matt for everything you did to support us on our big day. You consistently provided top class service & effortlessly (not without effort!) made the whole day glide seamlessly. I received loads of positive feedback from both guests and suppliers- who know too often things aren’t always so pro!

Laura & Matt, 26th June 2016

Hi Sophie

We can’t thank you all at south farm enough for how wonderful our wedding day was.

Helen was fantastic and so were you with the run up to our wedding. We still can’t stop smiling about the whole day. Everything was perfect and all our guests loved it. I will put a post on your Facebook page.

Thanks again

Scott & Kate Quarmby, 24th June 2016

Good Morning to all the wonderful, friendly, professional team at South Farm,

We can’t thank you enough for the fabulous day you arranged for Karen and Steve, everything was so lovely.

We had so many compliments about the venue and food.

It was a shame the heavens opened which stopped guests having a good look around the farm, but at least it stayed dry for the ceremony and photos.

Once again thank you all especially Sophie so much for such a special day for us all.

Many many thanks

Martin & Diane (Karens parents), 23rd June 2016

Hi Sophie

We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding. We had a great day and really appreciate how smoothly everything ran and the efforts of all the staff.

Thanks again

Clare & Ben, 12th June 2016

Hi Sophie,

We cannot thank you and the team enough for making our day so special – you even arranged for the sun to come out on the day!

Feedback from the guests has been brilliant – they all felt that South Farm was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever seen, the bedrooms were stunning (including the new B&B) and the food was absolutely spot on. I’ve seen quite a few instagram photos of the meals on the day!

 Your team have been incredibly accommodating of any changes, meal requests and we appreciate your patience with our questions throughout this process. We also really appreciate the list of your recommended suppliers as we chose our photographer and string quartet from this list which proved to be absolutely fantastic.

 Many Thanks

Rachael, 10th June 2016

To the team at South Farm,

We just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for making our wedding day so perfect. The venue was so stunning it did half of our job for us!

The food was better than we ever imagined and our guests still comment on this when I see them now!

Thank you,

Mr & Mrs Lynch,

We had the best time ever!!!!!!  Everything was amazing and you guys are so organised, Becky was fantastic.

Thanks so much.

Eve, 9th June 2016

We had the most amazing day of our lives, it was flawless, we didn’t worry about a thing and enjoyed every moment!

I want to say a big thank you as follows:

Thank you to you, Alli, Christine and everyone in the office that contributed to make the wedding day perfect with all the planning and support.  You guys deserve a gold medal for the amount of effort you put in to ensuring the day ran smoothly!

A big thank you to Becky who was our event manager on the day, OMG, she was fab!   The amount of weddings Becky has to manage and yet its like it was the first wedding she has done in terms of her excitement, enthusiasm and lovely comments, you can see she is a pro and all my family and friends loved her, thank you Becky!

Please thank all the staff (waiters/waitresses) that were at the reception and wedding breakfast, they were so professional, polite and on the ball, where do you get all these amazing people from!

Please thank the chefs, the food was outstanding!!!!!!  Everyone again commented how amazing it was –  A* rating 🙂

The venue was beautiful, the rooms were so lovely, the grounds were immaculate so thanks to all the cleaning staff and gardeners, I really don’t want to miss anyone out, you can tell I am making up for not having a speech!

Say thanks to the piggies for letting me stroke them, that was a lovely moment!!!

The dance floor brought a bit of magic to the day, so glad you had the extension built!

We are both so happy that we got married at South Farm, it truly is the most beautiful venue, it is the little gem that if you are lucky enough to find, will leave you with the most amazing memories that will last forever, we only wish we could do it all again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you 🌼

Mr & Mrs Knott,

In the end this was the only venue we viewed. One look and we thought, yes this is it. I could just imagine driving up the main drive with fairy lit trees on my wedding day to the main house. The wedding was easy to plan with help at every stage, with advice on little things you may not even think of. The day itself was just magical. Everything was taken care of behind the scenes, even the subtle point in the right direction when walking to the aisle as to which way around the tree! Food was sublime. All our guests commented on how good the food was. Truly magical, special day. I want to do it all again!

Karen & Marc, 8th June 2016

Both Ian and I would like to say a massive thank you to Alli and the whole South Farm team for making the day run so smoothly, it was an utterly amazing day and everyone loved the wedding and South Farm!  Alli was so friendly and was a very welcome addition to the day!  The bottle of fizz left for us in our room was a lovely surprise as well 🙂

 Thank you so so much for helping us have the perfect wedding.

Sarah, 3rd June 2016

Hi Sophie

Thanks again from me to yourself and the rest of the team for making our day perfect! I wouldn’t have changed anything and we had great feedback from everyone regarding the food and venue. We were so lucky with the weather – the next day was crazy!


Louisa, 30th May 2016

Hi Helen

I just wanted to write to thank you and all the team for all your hard work with our wedding on Friday. We honestly had the most perfect day and can’t thank you all enough for all you did. Everything ran perfectly thanks to you and the food was brilliant, everybody commented on how lovely it all was and what a great venue South Farm is – a lot of people said it was the nicest wedding venue they had ever been to (I am sure you hear that a lot!)

I will send over a few pics when we get them back but thank you again for everything in the run up and on the day. I am so pleased we booked South Farm!

Thanks a lot

Ellie & Matt, 27th May 2016

Thanks for your email, we had an absolutely fantastic day, everything was perfect. Jane in particular was brilliant – very calm, professional and reassuring, nothing was too much trouble. Please pass on our thanks to her. Lots of our guests said what a stunning venue it was and in particular how much they enjoyed the food. 

 Our suppliers were a mix of South Farm recommendations (the Little Cake Kitchen, Izzy Wild, Wedding Letter Hire and the Daisy Cutters) and others (Hannah Mia Photography, Bouquets and Butterflies florist) and they were all excellent. The night before the wedding I stayed at the Old Farm Yard B&B in Melbourn which was lovely and I would also highly recommend it as an excellent accommodation option.

Kind regards,

Claire & Pete, 21st May 2016

Just briefly though – we can’t thank you all enough. I knew we’d found our dream location when we came along to view South Farm back in October last year. The Menu Tasting Event too was off the scale!!! (Upwards I mean!) We’ve been dying for our friends and family to experience South Farm too, needless to say EVERYONE was SO impressed with the location and grounds, the staff, the food/drink, the accommodation and the relaxed yet efficient way the whole place is run. Your attention to detail was terrific, especially towards my dad who wasn’t feeling well on the day. I love the gentle nudges throughout the day that Alli gave us to let us know where/when we needed to be somewhere. Even taking my bouquet out of water in time for my entrance. The tuk tuk was huge fun.

We loved our trip to the Nature Reserve. We were blessed with fantastic weather and May is such a beautiful month too so the gardens and grounds were just wonderful. I love all the various areas both we and our guests could wander into. The Accomodation was brilliant, love the new decor too. Fantastic breakfasts in the morning.

All the staff were friendly and helpful both on the day and during the run up. I can’t believe you do 6 weddings a week sometimes … To us it felt as if we were the only ones and you were just as happy as we were! As I say, the atmosphere you create at South Farm is very unique and special.

I’m desperately thinking of a way we could hire South Farm again! It was a perfect day in every way. We’ve been together nearly 21 years – and it’s been worth the wait!

I’d also like to mention the Florists (Through the Looking Glass), Photographer (Helen Warner) and Hair & Make-up (Denise Lilley). As we were impressed with the whole South Farm ethos we trusted your “Approved” list. Again, all three were fantastic and again added greatly to the build up and enjoyment of the day.

This runs like a speech from the Oscars!!! Hope it doesn’t sound too gushing – but really – I can’t stress enough how fantastic you’ve all been! Lovely meeting James Paxman who showed us around and briefly we met his lovely dad too.

Warmest good wishes,

Alison & Jeremy, 15th May 2016

Thanks so much for your email. We had the most perfect day. It couldn’t have gone any better and our guest and is thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The staff at south farm were absolutely amazing and made our day even more perfect. Jane was fabulous too.

Thanks for all your help and support.

Leanne & Michael, 12th May 2016

Thank you all for your part in making Alison and Chris’ wedding such an enjoyable and stress free occasion. The venue was perfect and food, delicious. Staff were always available but unobtrusive. The day passed too quickly. All of our guests remarked favourable about the venue.

Thank you.

Fiona, 28th April 2016

Dear Alli,

I just wanted to say a brief and sincerely heartfelt, AND HUGE thank you to you and the team from both Sonia and myself.

We extend our greatest thanks to you, for helping to make our wedding day such an enjoyable and unforgettable one for us and for our family and friends too. Your professionalism, organisation and willingness put us at ease, allowing us to enjoy our day completely.

We know of course you do this for a living, but it shows!

Thanks so much,

Charlie & Sonia, 24th April 2016

Thank you for your e-mail.  We had an absolutely fantastic day.  The staff at South Farm did an excellent job.  Special thanks to Letty for all her efforts.

Sam, 23rd April 2016

We had the most incredible day on our wedding and even though we had high expectations because of what we had heard about South Farm before, these were exceeded. It really was the best day and we would appreciate it if you could thank Becky and the whole team working on the day. Particularly highlights were the food and the way Becky helped manage every aspect of the day. It is no surprise that you have won so many awards this year.


Ben & September, 22nd April 2016

To Sophie & everyone at South Farm,

Thank you so much for hosting our Wedding reception. We had the most amazing day! The food was amazing and the staff were fantastic! Sophie was perfect, she knew just when we needed her. If we could do the whole day again we would not change a thing!

Ria & Des, 21st April 2016

Our day was perfect, thank you so much for all of your help! Alli was fantastic on the day, I cannot compliment her enough! All the guests also loved the food – so thank you for all of your efforts making this so delicious!

Thanks again for all of your help and thank you for making my day very special. I have already spoken and recommended South Farm to many of my friends.

Best wishes,

Ali, 20th April 2016

Hi Sophie,

We just wanted to send our sincere thanks to yourself and the whole team at South Farm for helping to make our wedding day such a special, unique and memorable day. Beth and I have thoroughly appreciated the help and support you and the team have given to us throughout the whole  process, with many ‘question’ emails that we’ve sent. Our guests have also commented on the high quality of the food and service from staff, that they received on the wedding day and thoroughly enjoyed the experience being at your venue.

Beth and I also just wanted to highlight to you how fantastic it was to have all of the ‘small details’ thought about by your team, and these certainly made a big difference to our day. Things such as having a high quality bridal suite, dressing gowns and toiletries in the bridal suite, flexibility from staff regarding timings throughout the day and staff being on hand to ask questions throughout the day all made it run so much smoother and helped to make the day as special as it was.

Again, our sincere thanks and appreciation to every single one of your staff. South Farm has definitely become a memorable place in both of our minds as well as our guests.

Yours Sincerely,

Dan & Beth, 17th April 2016

Dear Sophie,

We’d both like to thank you and all the staff for such an excellent and smooth running wedding. You made everything so organised and we’ve had some great feedback so far.

Kind regards

Claire & Dan, 9th April 2016

We had the best day and all the staff at South Farm were brilliant, Jane especially.

It was our perfect day and all our guests were raving about how they loved South Farm!

Thank you so much.

Denise & Stephen, 7th April 2016

Thank you so much! We had a fantastic day and as far as I have heard all the guests did too! Alli was amazing; calmed any nerves at the start and made everything run so smoothly. We didn’t worry about a thing all day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! You have a lot of new fans for your venue and chefs!

Again, thank you so much for an amazing day (including the weather!!) The only tiny blip was the first dance (we completely forgot to give the music to the band). Cannot think of any other improvements at all!


Allie, 2nd April 2016

I just wanted to say that my wedding day would not have been so perfect and magical had we not picked you all. Words cannot describe the amazing job you did.

Helen you were a star catering to everything we needed and looking after the kiddies.

I just wish I could re-live it all.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Katie xx, 1st April 2016

Sophie & everyone else at South Farm,

Our wedding day went so much better than we ever imagined! We can’t thank you enough for guiding us through it all- your calmness throughout kept our worries at bay! South Farm is a dream & we really hope we get a reason to come back one day!

Dan & Sarah x, 31st March 2016

The day was fab – everything was perfect and we both feel very lucky it went like it did!

Thanks again Sophie! I’ll send proper thank you’s soon, but you were perfect and south farm was just our best choice!

Sarah x,

Thank you for congratulating us on our wedding. It was a truly outstanding day and will be in in our memories for years to come. Thank you to all the staff at south farm for really going above and beyond to make our day go off without a hitch.

Once again thanks to all at south farm.

Mr & Mrs Grundy, 20th March 2016

South Farm team,

Thank you so much for giving us the best wedding ever, we could not have asked for more. It was the most amazing day, you really had sorted everything.

Thank you,

Alan and Kari, 19th March 2016

I just wanted to personally say a huge thank you to everyone involved, front of house and behind the scenes in making Kari & Alan’s wedding such a special day.

All your efforts were rewarded in creating a perfect day for both them and all their guests.

Nothing had not been thought of, resulting in a happy and memorable day for everyone.

I wish you every success in the future, you all deserve nothing less.

Thank you again.

Kay (mother of the bride),

Just a quick note to say thank you to everyone for Monday evening.  The dinner went very well, the food was excellent and the service 5 star! Would you please pass my thanks on to everyone involved.

Many thanks & best regards

Cheryl, 14th March 2016

I am the father of Matthew whose wedding to Lucie you hosted at South Farm on Sunday. The (very) happy couple are now several thousand miles away and I thought I must write to you before they are able to do so to say thank-you for making Sunday such a wonderful occasion. The venue is impressive; that is clear from just looking at photographs. But on top of that, the management of the event was first class – everything was in place at the right time, seemingly without fuss or panic. The staff were superb – courteous and helpful without being overbearing.  The accommodation is lovely, the main barn is delightful, the food was delicious and the weather glorious (so happy am I now as I write this I think you may have even had a part to play in that!).

Regrettably in our family there are no new weddings on the cards, but if there were I have no doubt whatsoever that South Farm would top the list of venue choices.

So, thank-you for being central to one of the greatest days of my life. It was perfect. The feedback from everyone at the event was the same – a wonderful occasion in a wonderful setting.

Mr Smith, 13th March 2016

Our wedding day at south farm was perfect, and a huge thank you to all your team and especially Jane who made sure the day ran smoothly and seamless! Everyone I have spoke to have said it was the best wedding venue they have ever been to! Thanks again!

Lucie, 13th March 2016,

We had an absolutely fantastic day and were very impressed with how smoothly everything ran: a clear testament to yourself and the whole South Farm team.

Thank you again for all your hard work!

All the best, x

Sarah & Jim, 12th March 2016

My husband Rory and I had our wedding reception with you on 11th March and we just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you for helping us have an amazing wedding day! Apologies that it’s taken a while for this email – we have just got back from a very nice honeymoon in Thailand so are slowly getting back to everyday married life!

Please pass on our thanks to Alli and the rest of the team. Alli was amazing on the day and everything ran so smoothly! Also, our guests are still talking about how brilliant the food was – especially the warm flowerpot bread! We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and better service. Thank you for helping us have a very special and memorable day.

Thanks again and all the best, x

Laura & Rory, 11th March 2016

Thanks very much, we had an absolutely wonderful day!  Everyone at South Farm was fantastic and we enjoyed the day without any stress 🙂
Everyone said how lovely the venue was.
All the best x

Anna, 5th March 2016

Tom and I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for all your hard work and help in making Friday such a wonderful day for us both! We couldn’t have asked for a better team to run everything, it all went seamlessly and all of our guests were commenting to us all day about how professional and kind the whole team have been. Helen, you were fantastic! Thank you for everything you did, we really appreciated your help. Andy, thank you so much for helping us with our decorations and everything else we asked you!

Please pass our thanks on to all the staff who helped on our big day. Especially the kitchen staff, our wedding breakfast and evening food was thoroughly enjoyed by all! And for helping repair our slightly damaged cake when it arrived, I will be forever grateful!

Kindest regards and best wishes xx

Mr & Mrs Pearson, 4th March 2016

To all at South Farm,

Although a little late, we felt we had to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) to express our thanks for such a wonderful day that you gave Sarah and Mike.

Everyone has commented on what a fantastic time they had and it seemed only right to pass the praise on to South Farm.

It seems wrong to thank any one person more than another as everyone on your team was so helpful, friendly, considerate, polite and professional. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble or a problem for them.

Becky was our event’s organiser for the day and she was amazing, she ensured the day went so smoothly anticipating what we needed almost before we realised we needed it ourselves and guided us, what seemed effortlessly, through the day.

Andy was the other member of staff that noticeably helped us out a lot and I think we may have caused him to stay late the night before, thank you Andy.

There is one other member of staff that we would like to say a thank you to…the chef. The food was gorgeous and we really did enjoy it but our extra thank you is for the bit you did “above and beyond” by “knocking up” a little royal icing so as the “bride” managed to stay seated on the wedding cake, thank you. It was the little extra thoughts like that and the care everywhere and from everyone that went to make this day so special. Sarah and Mike both kept saying “I don’t want the day to end”.

We could not recommend you enough. Thank you everyone at South Farm for a truly memorable day.

Cheryl and Tony, 3rd March 2016
