South Farm Open Day – Tuesday 11th June 2019

Our Summer Open Day on Tuesday 11th June was a great success, and even though the rain gently persisted, we were delighted that it didn’t put off our visitors off. Thank you so much to all the 450 guests who visited our wedding venue. 

It was lovely to see our guests exploring our beautiful farmhouse, barns and gardens. Our event team were on hand to chat with couples about their wedding plans and to answer questions, while our waiting staff served homemade ice-cream to our guests. They were helped by our team of talented chefs, who created delicious canapes for guests to sample and enjoy. We also had a street food kebab bar set up in The Tudor Barn to give guests a taste of one of our many diverse and delicious evening food options.

Thanks to Our Splendid Suppliers! 

Big thanks to all our recommended suppliers who were with us on the day. Our amazing confetti pony Jack Brock stole the show with so many of our couples falling in love with him!!  We had great music from the brilliant singer and guitarist, David Foster in The Old Dairy and the awesome DJ Gary was on the decks in the horse barn.
