Hi Christine,

Please pass on our thanks to the whole South Farm team, especially the kitchen and Emily.

Our expectations were exceeded. South Farm is clearly a world class venue!!!

Thanks again,

Matt & Laura, 21st July 2018

Hello,

Thank you to everyone so SO much for making our day effortless, seamless and just more amazing than we could have ever imagined.

Huge thank you and well done, especially to Summer for being so smiley all day and ensuring everything was coordinated perfectly. (Apologies for bombarding you with questions when we first met). But also thank you to everyone who helped us in the planning stages along the way and everyone behind the scenes who are integral to the efficiency of the place.

Ben and I cannot fault any part of the way South Farm operate. Both of us cannot stop gushing about the brilliance and beauty of the place. We’re even considering a vow renewal in the future back with you guys!! Such a beautiful and really well-run venue. It was just perfect for us both having hectic lives, we never felt that it was a chore to organise our wedding through you.

Kind Regards,

Alison and Ben (Mr & Mrs Attwood), 19th July 2018

Good morning,

Thank you so much for making Alison and Ben’s wedding so very special and unique. Summer, their Event Manager, ensured everything ran smoothly, nothing was too much trouble for her to sort out for us. Thank you so much Summer for all you did for us. All the staff were brilliant and helped make the day so very special. We could not have asked for a more personalized service. I will certainly be recommending South Farm to anyone I know who is looking for a wedding venue.

Thank you,

Debbie Pilgrim (Alison’s Mum),

Dear Summer and South Farm,

I want to say a heartfelt thank you to all at South Farm for making our wedding day (and all the planning before that) so special. It has been an absolute pleasure from open days to show-rounds to tasting and the actual day – Kohei and I have enjoyed it so much. All the little touches you do that make it special are wonderful, and nothing felt like too much trouble. Please convey a special thank you to Helen our Event Manager for how she helped us on the day. Our guests have all commented on how fantastic South Farm and the food was, and we couldn’t agree more.

Claire and Kohei, 6th July 2018

I wanted to say a big thank you to all of the team at South Farm. We had such a perfect day and we are so thankful to all of you for making our dreams for the day a reality. You have all been so friendly, professional and supportive throughout the whole process – from planning, to the day itself. We both felt so relaxed and were able to focus on enjoying the day because we felt confident in your abilities to help the day run smoothly. Helga did an incredible job as being our Event Manager, she went above and beyond to make sure that we were both well looked after. We wouldn’t change a single thing about our wedding day and we were so thankful that we were able to have it at your beautiful venue! I don’t think we will ever stop telling everyone how amazing South Farm is!

Debbie & Scott, 25th June 2018

We want to say an enormous thank you for our most perfect wedding on Saturday. Everything was incredible and more than we could have hoped for.

Extra special thanks though must go to Emily, whose calm management of the day was flawless.

All of our guests commented on the beauty of the venue, the competence of the staff, the deliciousness of (all!) the food and the overall experience of the day.

So thank you,

Karen and Chris Fry(!) x, 16th June 2018

Thank you so much for the most amazing day (best day of our lives) everything about the day was perfect and I cannot thank you all enough! We’ve both received messages saying ‘best wedding I’ve ever been too’ and that is mostly down to your hard work and determination to make it personal and perfect! A special thanks to Summer for the day everyone kept saying how organized and lovely you were!

All our love

Katie and Jon xx, 15th June 2018

Thank you to all at South Farm – every member of staff we met treated us and our guests like royalty and made the day even better than we had hoped!

Thank you again,

Mark & Ginny Smith, 2nd June 2018

Dear Emily,

How can we thank you for all your help & guidance with our wedding? Thanks to you, we had the most amazing day which was even better than we had hoped! Nothing was too much trouble and every detail was covered. Thank you again for everything that you did.

With gratitude,

Mark & Ginny Smith x,

Everybody told me what a chilled and relaxed bride I was. MOST of that was down to how wonderful South Farm is. Aside from making some choices, we didn’t have to do much! Our day was managed by Emily who was so lovely and kind and everything went smoothly and without a hitch (apart from one minor hiccup which is hilarious with hindsight and fixed the minute I realised what I had done!).

It is a wonderful venue full of natural beauty and ALL the staff seem happy to be there and to help you, even though your big day is just one wedding in a week of weddings.

If I could, I would get married there again!

Rosemarie Parks-Connolly, 30th May 2018

Hi Summer,

Thank you very much, on behalf of myself and Dave we want to thank Sarah and Becky and the whole team for making our wedding the most wonderful day. All of the planners/information and spreadsheets that were provided really helped us in the build-up and Becky was great at responding quickly to all of my questions and ran the day perfectly. Sarah was lovely and really made us feel at ease and couldn’t do enough for us. A few of my friends have actually said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been too and that is definitely down to the venue and all of your organisational skills and the lovely staff.

Thanks to everyone again!

Lauren & Dave, 28th May 2018

Emily,

Thank you so so much for everything you did on Saturday. It was an incredible day and you did so much to keep it running smoothly despite the delays. Just absolutely perfect.

We are about to take off and we shall write and thank you and all the staff properly but just wanted to let you know how truly grateful we are.

Thank you so so much again. So many people commented on how wonderful you were.

Best wishes,

Rachel (and Hugh), 26th May 2018

We were lucky enough to be married at South Farm on the 25th of May 2018.

From our first viewing we knew we were in the right place, the warmth and care we received towards our wedding made us feel like we were the only wedding they had and made us feel incredibly special. Our Event Manager on the day Summer was superb and went above and beyond to ensure the day was perfect, and it was.

All of our guests commented on the amazing venue, incredible food and relaxed atmosphere; and we can’t compliment the staff enough. The only downside was how quickly the day went, we wish we could do it all over again, and thanks to South Farm, if we did we wouldn’t change a thing.

Thank you!

Chloe and Simon McGuinness, 25th May 2018

Hi Allí

Just had to tell you how fantastic our day was, everything was just perfect, Sarah did an amazing job very calmly and professionally with a beautiful smile, we all loved her.

We all want to thank you for a beautiful day.

Love from,

Eloise, Sam, Alan and Karen, 24th May 2018

To all the staff at South Farm,

We would like to say thank you all for making our wedding day so fantastic, we had such a wonderful day and everything ran smoothly, your organisation and care in making sure everything was just right was outstanding.

A very special thank you to Sarah on the day for being so professional with a beautiful smile and calm manor making us feel so assured that everything was going to go to plan. She is an absolute gem!

Thanks again,

Eloise, Sam, Alan and Karen,

Me and my husband got married here on the 17th May 2018. It was the most perfect day! We couldn’t thank the staff enough they were all amazing and went above and beyond ! The venue was just beautiful! So many lovely comments from our guests at how lovely everything was! And the food was just amazing! This venue and staff are just incredible!! Thank you so much for making our day so special!

Mr and Mrs Palmer xxx, 17th May 2018

My husband Philip and I got married on the 14th of May 2018. I cannot recommend South Farm enough! Our day was so relaxed and felt so intimate and special. The staff were absolutely fantastic throughout the planning process and on the day itself. Our Event Manager on the day, Helen, was so helpful and went out of her way to lend a hand wherever needed. Feedback from our guests was that the venue was beautiful and our overnight guests found the accommodation very peaceful and comfortable. The food was amazing! South Farm was the only wedding venue we visited; as soon as we saw it we just knew it was perfect for us. We didn’t need to look anywhere else!

Thank you so much to all the staff who helped make our day so perfect! We wish we could do it all over again!

Jennie Boyes, 14th May 2018

Hi South Farm!

We just wanted to say Thank You for helping us have a fantastic wedding on Monday! We had an amazing day! So many people commented on how relaxed the day felt, and how beautiful the venue was. Thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special, and thank you to all the brilliant staff who have helped us along the way.

Special thank you also to Helen for managing the day – you were so lovely and ready to lend a hand with anything (like fetching Jennie’s earrings from the Bridal Suite!) You were excellent – thank you for making sure the day ran smoothly.

Best wishes,

Jennie & Philip Boyes (!),

We got married at South Farm on Sunday 13th May. Our day was absolutely perfect. We had both dreamed of an outdoor ceremony and as luck would have it the sun was shining and we got married in the Summer House. The event coordinators were brilliant and couldn’t do enough for us. They made sure that our day ran smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about a single thing. So we could just relax and enjoy our day. All of our guests commented on how beautiful South Farm was and what a lovely time they had. This venue is amazing, the staff are amazing, the food is incredible and accommodation for the bride, groom and guests is beautiful. We would recommend this venue to anyone looking for their perfect day.

Amber Coulson, 13th May 2018

Hi all,

Andrew and I just wanted to express our humongous thanks and appreciation for everything you’ve done for us, in both the build up to the wedding and also on the day. It was genuinely the best day of our lives and that was thanks to the amazing support, planning and creativity of you and the team.

Emily was just wonderful on the day, smiling non-stop and making us feel so relaxed throughout.

Every one of your staff has been there at the end of the phone for us both, and our guests were blown away by the whole venue and attention to detail.

We are forever grateful and we can’t wait to send you some professional photos! Plus come to the next Open day at South farm!

All our love,

Laura & Andrew, 12th May 2018

So yesterday we attended a wedding and I just want to say how much I appreciated the amount of effort that went into my son with his Dairy Free option! Your staff are absolutely incredible and made the whole day fantastic.

Carisha Victoria Goundry, 10th May 2018

Hi Summer,

Thank you very much😁

I thought the wedding was amazing!! The venue is outstanding, I’m so relieved the weather was as good as it was, as it enabled us to get married in the beautiful garden, and for everyone to enjoy the venue to it’s fullest. The children (and adults) loved the animals, having the animals onsite really adds to the venues charm and interest.

I’m so grateful to Alli for being a wonderful Event Manager. She could obviously tell how nervous and emotional I was, her kind words and relaxed manner really helped me to calm down (a bit….). I hear she was also amazing helping Rob before the ceremony. Therefore please could you pass on a massive thank you to Allii from the both of us!!!

We don’t think South Farm could have done anything to improve the day, it really was wonderful! I just wish we could string the wedding out for more than a day.

Maybe if I’m lucky I’ll be invited to someone else’s wedding at South Farm😁

Many thanks to all of the staff who made our day so seamless and unforgettable.

All the best

Jo,

This is a fantastic venue, although off the beaten track, set in its own grounds, the effort has been made to blend the new with the Tudor buildings. The barn makes an excellent indoor area. Great friendly staff. Even despite the very warm weather.

Peter McMahon (Wedding Guest), 6th May 2018

Hi all,

Well what can I say – thank you all and all of your team SO much for our incredible day on Sunday.

It honestly was absolutely perfect. We could not have asked for a better day. So many people told us it was the best wedding they’d ever been to and certainly the most amazing venue.

All of your team has been amazing throughout the entire planning process and on the day Helga and everyone were perfect – organising us and keeping the day on track but with a very light touch so it never felt stressful. Please pass on my thanks to Helga for looking after us on the day.

The only thing we are sad about is that we don’t get to come to South Farm anymore!

Thank you all again for everything.

Lots of love

Kat and James xxx,

My dear Emily, I don’t know how to begin thanking you for what you did for us on our wedding day!

You beautiful lady, you were absolutely incredible, just so all-over-everything, so efficient, so lovely, you knew EVERYTHING that was going on, you were just absolutely amazing. You’re one of these people that we will probably not meet again (sob) but you played an enormous part on the best day of our lives – we can’t thank you enough.

You worked your absolute socks off, were so calm, patient, ruthlessly efficient, respectful, talented, went above and beyond, and just an absolute joy. People are still telling us how amazing you were, you are such a credit to South Farm and I can’t imagine you not being a part of the day.

We’re still waiting for the official photos (and going to send you a proper thank you card with them on) but I couldn’t wait any longer to email you. I would hate for you to think we’d forgotten what you’d done for us, or that we weren’t happy.

We will never forget you and what you did for us.

Love Laura and John xxx, 5th May 2018

We got married on 28th April and it was an amazing day! South Farm is the most beautiful venue and everything ran perfectly! All the staff were great! Wish we could do it all over again!

Chloe Woodhams xx, 28th April 2018

To everyone at South Farm,

You guys are incredible. We had the BEST day on Friday, even despite the awful weather. We cannot thank you enough for all you did to make our day so special, we could not fault any part of it. The set up was faultless, the food was beautiful and the organisation was so well thought out, you run the whole place like a well-oiled machine!

A special thank you to Emily Chester, for our planning meeting and answering my endless questions in the lead up to the day, you were such a pleasure. And Summer, our amazing event manager on the day, you were everything we could’ve asked for!

We will never get over our amazing day, South Farm is such an incredible place, it will always mean so much to us.

Thank you for everything,

Abby & Matt – Mr & Mrs Laing xxx, 27th April 2018

We got married at South Farm on 27/04/2018 and it was perfect. The staff were completely faultless in every aspect of the day and during the whole planning process. A big thank you to Summer, our Event Manager on the day, you were amazing! And to Emily C for making the lead up really easy and for answering all my questions so efficiently. The day ran so smoothly, with so many lovely little touches, from someone waiting at every door with an umbrella (it didn’t stop raining!) to finding slices of our dessert in our mini fridge in the Bridal Suite after having missed out during dinner. We’ve had so many comments from guests about the incredible food (including the delicious breakfast!) and the accommodation both at South Farm and Fen Bridge. South Farm is such a special venue, and will always hold such amazing memories for us. Would recommend to anyone. What I wouldn’t give to do it all again!

Abby Rose Laing,

Thank you

We had a fantastic day, thanks to all at South Farm specially the office staff that helped me with organisation,

Best regards

Jerry & Rose, 20th April 2018

I was guest at wedding just yesterday. It was such a wonderful day I just wanted to add something from a guest’s perspective – the venue was really special and the food was amazing. Staff were great and the whole day felt so relaxed and friendly. Just wish we’d stayed the night in a gypsy caravan!

Catherine Hammond (Wedding Guest), 14th April 2018

Hi South Farm,

Well… what can we say! We cannot thank you enough for such a beautiful stunning day on Saturday. Helga and all the team were simply amazing. Anything we needed was supplied and the attention to detail was impeccable! So many of our guests commented on what a beautiful venue it was, how tasty and elegant the food was, and how brilliant and helpful Helga and all the staff were. People couldn’t believe how we managed to find such a stunning and unique venue… Plus how lucky we were to have the sun shine on us! We can’t thank you enough.

Thank you so so much again!

With love,

Carly and Jay xxx (Mr and Mrs Hammond!!!!),

To Carys & Team,

Wow, what can I say! Thank you for the overall professional & smooth running of our wedding day! From day one your communication was key & constantly made me feel at ease with the planning. Everyone at South Farm went above & beyond to help our wedding and it did not go unnoticed. From setting up the day before to helping guests in their caravans, all of our guests were honestly blown away by the venue’s beauty & customer service. The food was outstanding & the overall venue was perfect! We hope to return to another wedding at South Farm soon!

Thank you again Carys,

Love Katie & Lee Chappell x x, 11th April 2018

My husband Oscar and I got married on 4th April 2018. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and we wish we could relive it over and over again! South Farm and all of their staff made us and our guests feel so welcome, and were nothing short of helpful. Their professionalism guided us through our day smoothly without any hiccups, whilst making our wedding feel intimate, individual and special (especially when a kind member of your staff handed us a drink whilst doing the photos so that we didn’t miss out!) We have only received outstanding compliments on the venue itself, but most importantly the food – which was sublime! We cannot thank you enough for our special day, one that we will never forget!

Eloise Jeakings, 4th April 2018

To the South Farm Team,

We just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank You’ for arranging the perfect wedding day for us. We honestly had the time of our lives… Best day ever!

All our love,

Ruth & Sam Ekins, 18th March 2018

Hello all at South Farm,

We had the most perfect wedding day on Saturday! Everything went exactly as planned and looked amazing!

Here’s a list of thank you’s-

Carys – we both can’t thank you enough for your hard work you did on the day, thank you for running around helping my bridesmaids iron their dresses! You were just great at holding us together, keeping us calm & keeping the day running smoothly!

Becky, Alli & Summer – your correspondence and organisation was a huge help on the run up to the big day & all the little details fell into places perfectly!

The kitchen & bar staff were amazing! All of our guests were made to feel special, no request was too much! After the food tasting event in November Gavin & I couldn’t wait to be back & tuck in to the meal! The food was outstanding, our guests all agreed 😊

The lady who served our breakfast on Sunday was wonderful & accommodating (sorry I missed her name)! She had put a lot of effort in to setting the table, it was just lovely! Really finished off our experience perfectly!

All in all I have only excellent things to say about South Farm 🙂 thank you all for making our big day so perfect!

Best wishes,

Hannah & Gavin, 24th February 2018

Hi Emily,

We both wanted to say a massive thank you to you and everyone at South Farm for everything you did for us on Sunday 🙂 we had the best day and everything went so smoothly with your help. Many guests commented on the venue calling it the best wedding venue they had ever been to and the food was loved by everyone so please pass our thanks on to the chefs!

Good luck for the future and hope to see you again soon 🙂

Dean and Sarah,

Evening Summer,

Thank you very much for your email.

Our day was fantastic, we could not have wished for it to have been more perfect – mainly because of the hard work and effort that the South Farm Team put into it for us – especially Helga on the day, we couldn’t have done it without her!

All of our guests have commented on how amazing the venue was and how much they enjoyed themselves, the food and the music. We could not have asked any more from South Farm, every element of our day was thought of and planned to perfection. I didn’t have any doubts in the smooth running of the day but to actually experience a stress free wedding day because of the hard work put in by the South Farm Team is overwhelming and very much appreciated by myself and Sam. Thanks to you we are able to look back at our special day with nothing but positive memories and happy thoughts.

We shall definitely send over some photos when we receive them from our photographer. We very much look forward to sharing these with you as the beautiful venue made most of the photos as magical as they could be.

Thank you doesn’t seem like a big enough word, we are extremely grateful!

Amy and Sam, 14th February 2018

To all at South Farm,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all at South Farm who made my daughter and Son-in-Law’s wedding such a happy, special and truly memorable occasion.

The setting was lovely, the food exceptional and the running of the day, managed for us by Helga, was flawless. All our guests turned up despite the atrocious weather in the evening and everyone remarked what a lovely time they’d had.

The morning breakfast with our family and friends topped off a wonderful and unforgettable occasion.

Many, many thanks to you all on behalf of Amy and Sam and please pass on my heartfelt thanks to Helga and her team.

Kind regards and best wishes,

Kevin Henson (Father of the Bride),

Dear South Farm Team,

Literally best day of our lives. South Farm were better than we could have ever expected, and we had zero problems with the organisation on the day. Also, as every guest has said, best wedding food they have ever had!!!

Sam Morrow,
