Testimonials

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.

I hope this finds you well after last night!

Nick and I just wanted to write to say a huge thank you to you, Helga and everyone else who was involved in the organisation and running of the tasting last night as we know it must have taken a huge amount of planning and effort on the day! Everyone was so helpful and friendly and we had a really lovely evening – it has made us so much more excited (if possible) for our actual wedding day! All the food was delicious and I was hugely appreciative of the provisions you made for me as a vegetarian!  Thank you so much!

I hope the next two evenings go just as well for you.

Thank again and best wishes,

Emma

Menu Tasting – Emma Spooner & Nick Churchill, 26th February 2020

We just wanted to send a message to say a huge thank you to everyone involved with yesterday’s food tasting. It was the most perfect evening, which made us feel even more lucky to have our wedding at South Farm. From the elegant setting, to the friendly and warm welcome and of course the exquisite tasting and beautifully presented food, the whole evening was magical, so we can’t imagine how much more amazing it will be on our special day.

We could see how much effort had gone into the evening, so we would appreciate it if you could pass on our thanks to everyone involved.

Best Wishes

Jess & Gerry

Menu Tasting – Jess & Gerry,

We had the most special day. The venue is amazing and the staff from the start of our process, up to and including our big day were faultless. First class all the way!

Aysen Mehmet & Rob Luker, 16th February 2020

Hi Summer,

Thank you so much for everything you done for both myself and David on our wedding day. I don’t think the day would have gone as smoothly if it wasn’t for you.

You were there for anything either of us needed and even our guests requests.

Our day was as perfect as we imagined, the venue is absolutely beautiful. Everything just ran like clockwork, would also like to thank all of the staff as they were all so polite and helpful.

Most of our guests had told us that was the best wedding they’ve ever been to.

Thanks again for everything, I will be recommending South Farm to anyone I know who gets engaged in the future.

A slightly belated thank you for organising an excellent wedding for Emma & George last Saturday. We were very lucky with the weather, which presented South Farm in glorious winter sunshine, and we missed the wind and rain that lashed everywhere on the Sunday. All the guests commented on the choice of venue and the quality of the food. It all made for an excellent event with the vast majority of the guests staying to the bitter end.

Our organiser on the day was Emily and she was on top of all aspects. Her dialogue with me kept me fully up to date with everything and even when the speeches over ran their allotted time she was brilliant in getting the room re-organised so that we were soon back on target. All your staff were a credit to your organisation with exactly the right amount of attention to detail, whilst staying in the background and letting us enjoy the day with our guests.

On behalf of Emma, George and both sets of parents thank you very much.

Rebecca & Mark Insole – Brides Revisited Charity Event,

Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the hard work that went into this event. It was our first time back since 2014 and it was so nice to be able to come and have a wonderful dinner and a lovely evening.

Special shout-out to Tom who agreed to recreate my fave wedding pic outside the blue front door, then ended up out there with couple after couple, in the freezing cold! Lovely man! Can’t wait to see the pics.

Thanks again

Sam & Stephen Boyd

Sam & Stephen – Brides Revisited Charity Event,

Hello,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything everyone at South Farm did for our wedding on Friday!

Michelle was so friendly and attentive and really felt part of the wedding party which was lovely. My niece also said a special thank you to her for the cake!

The food also got rave reviews from everyone who came and was delicious!

Thank you to everyone who was involved in the run up to the wedding – Emily and Becky were both great and made everything seem so easy!

I also had a lovely time catching up with Hannah – thanks for letting me in the kitchen!

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a well deserved break.

Thanks again,

Louise and Steve

Louise & Steve Fowler, 20th December 2019

5 stars. From the moment we first looked around to the morning after our wedding, South Farm was incredible.

Special mention to Helen our organiser on the day who made us both feel at ease, as well as making sure every detail was covered.

Communication with South Farm made me feel a little worried initially as you talk to so many different people in the team. But when we met Helen it became clear it wasn’t that no-one was specifically looking after us, it’s that every one of the team is looking after us and the level to which Helen knew what we wanted just showed that.

We got so many compliments on the food, every single contributor from their recommendations was spot on and all the staff were friendly. It was perfect.

Plus there are piglets!

Amy & Peter Richardson, 13th December 2019

My husband and I got married in December at South Farm and we cannot recommend South Farm enough.
Leading up to the big day, they were very professional, responding quickly to any emails I sent and very helpful.
On the day, Emily was fantastic. She kept the day feeling calm, allowing us just to have the best day ever!
The food was AMAZING and all our guests commented on how delicious the food was. We required different meals for some of our wedding guests, which seemed no problem at all for the chefs and were really flexible.
The accommodation was clean, tidy and super convenient for our guests and the breakfast the next day was just as good as the wedding breakfast!

We honestly cannot recommend a venue enough and although perhaps we are slightly bias, our guests all echo our opinions!

Thank you to all the team at South Farm

Kayleigh & Tom Smith, 12th December 2019

We had our beautiful wedding here on Thursday. Francesca and I enjoyed it so much and Michelle and Helga were on top form.

Francesca & Kathy, 21st November 2019

Hi Summer,

Thanks so much for your message and sorry for our late reply, we are just back from our honeymoon in Cyprus!

It would be impossible for us to tell you how perfect everything was on the day, we were both a bit anxious in the days leading up to it but we needn’t have been, Jane took excellent care of us and honestly it was better than we ever could have hoped! Loads of our guests said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to, everyone said the food was absolutely amazing, and we really couldn’t have been more thrilled with everything so thank you so much to the whole team, particularly Jane and Emily as well who helped a lot with the planning and was brilliant in the lead up to the day. And to you Summer who showed us around when we first came to visit you just over a year ago and you helped us make the excellent decision to have our wedding at South Farm!.

Sending all our very best to the team and we hope to be able to visit South Farm again in future!

Kind regards

Emily and Thomas xxx

Emily & Thomas, 16th November 2019

My daughter, Eve Landon (now Dolling ?) got married at your beautiful venue on 9th November this year. I would just like to say how fabulous her day was ? I can’t fault anything. Summer was absolutely amazing, friendly, professional, understanding and totally on top of everything. I don’t know what we’d have done without her! Chris, the MC, was a delight and ensured the day ran smoothly, as well as winning the hearts of us and our guests ? I could gush on about many things, including the food and accommodation but I’d end up writing a novel ? Suffice to say, we are so happy that we chose South Farm to host our celebrations ? ???

Many thanks

Alison Landon, 9th November 2019

Dear Summer and the South Farm Team,

We wanted to thank you for making our Wedding Day so special.

The planning of the day was made so much easier because of all you did – your lovely and speedy responses to all of our enquiries in the buildup made it that much less stressful for us.

The day itself was perfect and we wanted to especially thank Summer for making everything run so smoothly and particularly for staying later to assist in the evening.

We will never forget our special day at South Farm.

Thank you again

Ash & Eve,

5 star rating!!! South Farm is the most incredible wedding venue. My husband and I got married earlier this month and would highly recommend. The staff were amazing, from the beginning of planning to the execution on the day. Everything ran smoothly and was very organised, all details were covered making the process of planning as stress free as possible. The food was also wonderful, we had lots of comments from our guests saying how much they enjoyed it. The staff made us feel very special and catered to all of our needs. They went above and beyond our expectations for a wedding venue. We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding there. We were in discussion with a few of the team at the venue, all of which were great. Summer was our wedding planner on the day and was wonderful!!

Emily & Edward Chapman, 1st November 2019

On behalf of myself and my new HUSBAND, I’d just like to say a massive thank you to you and the whole team at South Farm. The day could not have gone better and we couldn’t imagine celebrating anywhere else. From day one, the experience has been an absolute pleasure and given the short timeline we were working with, we were pleasantly surprised at how easy the whole planning process felt!

Myself and Iain were so happy with how the day went- a bonus was that we got lucky with the weather and had the magical experience of our dream outdoor ceremony! All the guests have talked about is how the venue was so stunning and how great the food was (we’ve even had a couple of carnivores consider a plant based diet going forward!)

Honestly we could go on…

Again a big thanks to all those we worked closely with including James, Emily and of course Becky who on the day ran a slick military operation and of course this will all be reflected in our online reviews too.

Take care and best wishes,

Steph and Iain

Steph & Iain, 20th October 2019

Dear All,

My new wife and I just want to say a very big thank you to Emily and all of you at South Farm you really made our day very special and enjoyed by everyone who attended. Everything went very smoothly without problems.

Best regards

Mark & Ronnie Hagger, 19th October 2019

Dear Summer,

Happy New Year to you and the team at South Farm! We hope you all had a lovely holiday period.

We would like to express our appreciation for everything the team at South Farm have done for us. We couldn’t have wished for anything more, as you had met and promptly exceeded all our expectations. Everything was handled with great professionalism and warmth. Our guests have all expressed how impressed they were by the venue, the food, the staff and the atmosphere. Even to this day people are still commenting on the amazing buffet spread and the romance of South Farm. A special mention to yourself, Summer, for being with us from our first show around, through to the final moments of the big day, and for always having the kindest nature.

Mr. and Mrs. Darnell-Anderson, 17th October 2019

Dear Phillip & Team,

We wanted to thank you so much for an absolutely perfect day we had on the 9th October 2019 for our son Nick and Laura’s wedding. Everyone throughout enjoyed themselves and we all agree that the venue, food and most of all the staff were all fabulous. We will be recommending the farm as it was fantastic in every way.

King Regards,

Chris & Karen Garrett.

Chris & Karen Garrett, 9th October 2019

To Helga, Emily, Christine and the whole team at South Farm,

Phil and I want to say a huge thank you to everyone at South Farm for giving us the most perfect wedding day we could have wished for.

From the moment we booked you as our venue we received fantastic service. You were happy to accommodate all of our needs to make the day uniquely ours. You were organised and proactive in the months before the wedding, helping us with our choices at each step and leaving us in no doubt that everything was in hand. The food tasting day we attended was a runner-up for best day of the year!

On the day itself Helga was friendly and professional, and all the staff’s hard work was evident in the fact that everything went perfectly and seamlessly. Friends and family were full of compliments about the venue, food and staff.

We honestly had the best day of our lives and we are so glad we chose South Farm to make it happen.

Please accept a huge thank you from us both, and from our families and friends.

All the best,

Katie & Phil

Mrs & Mrs Clemence-Jackson, 6th October 2019

Dear Christine

My husband and I would like to thank everyone at South Farm for making our daughter’s wedding so special on Sunday.  Thanks to you, everything went perfectly and everyone who attended had a wonderful time. We’d particularly like to thank Helga who ensured that everything went according to plan, and who met every query or request with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt that we were in safe hands and were very well looked after. The food was amazing; it looked beautiful, tasted delicious and was served smoothly and efficiently. The chef and team are to be congratulated on producing such high quality food throughout the day, from the delicious canapés, to the magnificent meal, the lovely truffles and finally the hog roast rolls. There were many compliments!

Thank you so much!

Lynne & Gerald Clemence,

Dear all at South Farm,

It honestly couldn’t have been any better. We are incredibly grateful for the work of all staff on the day – especially Summer who was a total delight and kept us calm down and relaxed throughout! 🙂

Special shout-outs to Emily & Becky who were fantastic as we booked and planned the day – just exceptional pros 🙂 Love always!

Katherine & Ben Selby, 29th September 2019

Dear South Farm!

We just wanted to message to thank everybody at South Farm for the most amazing and wonderful wedding day! From the very first time we saw South Farm we fell in love, it was everything we were looking for in a wedding venue! The staff were amazing every step of the way and made the wedding planning experience smooth, stress-free and very enjoyable! We loved all of it from the amazing menu tasting, to the pre-planning meeting to of course the big day itself! My personal highlight were the piglets of course!

All of our guests absolutely loved the venue and thought it was amazing! They thought everything was so personal and we had a lovely sunny day so they got to see all the beautiful gardens!

Becky was our wedding planner on the day and she was amazing! She made the day run so smoothly and we cant thank her enough!

Olli and Emma Sharpe, 8th September 2019

Jane & Team,

Thank you so much for all of your help on the lead up to our wedding day. We truly had the most incredible day & honestly couldn’t have wished for a better venue & team. The food was incredible & the bar staff managed to keep up with our cocktail orders.

Lots of love Mr & Mrs Richards

Mr & Mrs Richards, 29th August 2019

Dearest Emily & The team South Farm,

Thank you for being amazing! It was the most wonderful day and went like clockwork!

Sarah & Nick, 28th August 2019

We’ve just returned back home after attending our Nephews wedding on a very hot day. On behalf of me and my wife we’d like to say thanks. We’ve been to a lot of weddings and were saying to each other this has to be the nicest one we’ve been to. The owners and all the staff should be very proud of what they have created a truly remarkable experience.

Mr & Mrs Walsh

Mr & Mrs Walsh, 26th August 2019

To Helen and everyone at South Farm,

We just wanted to thank you for making our dream wedding come true. We had the most perfect day and it all ran so smoothly. Helen helped us feel so relaxed and calm, even grabbing Josh a banana straight after the ceremony, as nothing was too much to ask. We are so glad we chose South Farm to host our wedding. Thank you for everything … We wish we could do it all over again!

Mr & Mrs Henddrickson,

Dear Helga and all the team at South Farm,

Neil and I wanted to also give massive thanks for our daughter’s wedding on Sunday 25th August 2019. Your calm, friendly and professional help ensured a stunning, spectacular, amazing day that we shall all remember for the rest of our lives.

Kath & Neil Walker, 25th August 2019

Helen, Caio from Italy!

We have spent our first day of honeymoon talking about the wedding and singing your praises! Wow, you were fantastic!

Thanks for making our dream day come true and then some! We were drunk in love (and just drunk) and you made every second perfect!

We’re happy to say the weather in Italy is better than our wedding day!

Thank you so much for everything!

Wow!

Lots of love!

Mr & Mrs Hastings! Xxxxxx

Mr & Mrs Hastings, 16th August 2019

Thank you to everyone at South Farm,

To Jane for discreetly organising us and being kind to Minnie, to Gary the brilliant DJ ( We danced all night), the Chefs for the fantastic food and best breakfast sausages, the housekeepers for our perfect rooms and the gardeners who keep the grounds looking so beautiful and to anyone else working behind the scenes.

As parents who live in Scotland hundreds of miles from our daughter, South Farm was a perfect choice of venue. We keep being told it was the best wedding ever. A huge thank you for a day we will always remember for the rest of our lives. It was very special

Anne Marie & Richard Wild

Amy and Richard, 12th August 2019

We got married at South Farm on the 11th August 2019. From the initial show round two years previous we knew this was our wedding venue. The run up to the wedding with the planning meeting and wedding planner document made it so easy to communicate everything we needed for our day, and on the day everything was in place just as we wanted. The whole day ran just as planned and our event manager Emily did an amazing job at making sure everything was alright all the way through.

Emily Bundock-Hitch & Gary Hitch, 11th August 2019

To the South Farm team,

We just wanted to thank you for being the venue for our special day on the 11th August 2019. The smiles on the bride and grooms faces show how much they enjoyed their big bad and that is what is important. Everything on the day was dealt with efficiently and promptly due to your hard work, planning and attention to detail. We know that delivering an experience like this requires so much hard work behind the scenes by an army of people, from the front of house, Chefs, Event Managers, kitchen potters and cleaners and those working in the early hours of the morning to clean and set tables. We want to thank each and every member of the South Farm team because we know it is a team effort. However we would like to single out one person for a special mention, our event manager Emily. She was outstanding and was always there making sure everything ran smoothly but never in the way. She was there to show us around South Farm two years ago when we were looking for venues and it was fitting that she was the event manager on our big day. Thank you Emily.

We have so many wonderful memories of our wedding day which will last a lifetime. We entrusted you with our dreams for a perfect wedding and you didn’t let us down.

Thank you so much Gary Hitch, Emily Bundock-Hitch, Gary Bundock & Sandra Bundock

Emily & Gary,

From starting off looking around the venue, to the actual wedding day, we received exceptional service, organisation and support with planning our big day.

The venue is absolutely stunning, and lived up to everything we envisioned and could have hoped for. We have had countless comments from our guests praising South Farm, in particular, how you have so many lovely areas for guests to disperse into, and how incredibly delicious all of the food was!
We would also like to thank Helga for being with us for our day and making sure everything ran smoothly. She was professional, knowledgeable, calming, friendly and an absolute godsend, ensuring that everything was taken care of so that we could just take in and enjoy the day!

Thank you again,

Olivia & Max Stephenson-Pope, 5th August 2019

To all the team at South Farm,

Thank you so much for making our big day on the 28th July so amazing!

When we chose South Farm as our venue we both knew we were guaranteed a wonderful day, and we were not let down.

Helga – you were brilliant in ensuring our day ran smoothly, thank you so much for keeping us calm and ensuring our Ushers and Bridesmaids kept on task and everyone was where they were supposed to be.

Alexandra and Becky – Thank you for your excellent help and care in each and every stage of our planning, and for always being available on email regardless of the time of day. We felt confident knowing that whatever requirements we submitted in our final plan would be carried out to the letter.

Finally, please send our thanks to the chefs and kitchen staff who prepared such wonderful food; also the waiting and bar staff who set up the barn and served our guests with such elegance and professionalism.

Best wishes

Lydia & Blaine, 28th July 2019

Thank you, Mel & Jono

Mel & Jono, 4th July 2019

Jono and I wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to all the team and to Summer for leading our whole day on Thursday – we couldn’t have been happier with how our wedding went and we are still on a high from it. You have been absolutely fabulous. We are on honeymoon for a week so will touch base with you on our return but had to send this quickly just to pass on our massive thanks and gratitude for what you have all done.

Summer – you were just incredible on the day – so calm and collected and thank you for keeping me in the loop all day with everything. You were a star. Thanks for being 120% excellent we are so, so pleased.

Will be in touch once we get back from our holiday.

Lots of love,

Mel and Jono xxx,

We fell in love with South Farm the very first time we visited it and we had the most beautiful, fun, and perfect wedding there. We were extremely lucky with the weather and had the most stunning setting for an outdoors wedding. You will honestly not find a better venue or place to get married than South Farm, we could not recommend it more!
The venue is a magic, special and completely unique, you have to visit to completely understand it. We have had so many compliments from all our guests on how much they loved the venue, the food and they had such a great time!
The food is really exquisite, organic and local, and South Farm is very flexible to adapt to what you really want. The food, just like the service, couldn’t be better. We had some challenges with some guests´s diet requirements and as Spanish I wanted to have some Spanish food too. South Farm were more than happy to help us and follow some of the recipes I provided. My family complimented this, and were surprised it was really good!
The staff is warm, friendly and they put a great amount of effort and thought into everything, means we didn’t feel at all stressed! On the day Helga, our events manager, was more than amazing. She flitted about in the background and was always one step ahead of us. Thank you for being super fantastic! Thanks as well to Emily and Alexandra for making the organisation really easy and for coordinating all since day one and reply all our questions so efficiently.

We absolutely loved having our big day at South Farm and couldn’t be happier looking back on it. I wish we could do it all over again.

Also thanks to Emily and Alli for replying to my endless emails!

You will honestly not find a better venue or place to get married than South Farm – the food, staff and setting are just out of this world!

It was a perfect day, fantastic venue, great staff & unbelievable food. There was nothing we would have changed as it was the day we all hoped for & more.

Jane Killock (Mother of Bride),

To Helga,

Thank you for all of your help on our special day.

You went above and beyond to ensure our day went perfectly and we honestly can’t thank you enough.

Not only did you make sure everything was running smoothly in the background but you were always on hand to give us advice and answer all of our questions.

All of our guests had a lovely day and commented on how amazing South Farm is.

Thank you again for all of your help and guidance,

Love,

Jade & Kierren Bird x, 26th June 2019

Hi all at South Farm,

We just wanted to take a minute from the craziness which has been our amazing wedding and then straight off to Florida to say the biggest thank you to everyone at South Farm and a really special thank you to Helen who was our Event Manager on Monday!

We have both said so many times that we had just a perfect day and we honestly couldn’t have asked for better! Helen was an absolute wedding angel, who was all over the place, sorting everything and everyone out and just being so calm and in control! It meant we both totally relaxed and had the most amazing day!

We feel like you guys thought of every last little thing, even down to tidying the bridal suite before we went in (because I’m pretty sure it was carnage in there when we left it ?). And we were just amazed at how amazing the garland looked in the Tudor Barn so a big thank you to everyone who sorted that, it sounded like quite a team! But it looked way better than when we put it on the Summerhouse so thank you!! ? Every single member of staff that was around was friendly and super helpful!

I feel like this has been a rather long email and I still don’t feel like we’ve said thank you enough! But I will say thank you one last time for making the most important day of our lives absolutely perfect, it was because of everyone’s hard work that we have the most amazing memories! I know you do lots and lots of weddings but on Monday it really felt like ours was the only one that mattered, it was so obvious that everyone just wanted it to be perfect for us (again special mention to Helen here!) and we are so so grateful for that!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Grace and Guy x, 24th June 2019

To everyone at South Farm,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day more perfect than we could have imagined! Every single member of staff was so polite, helpful and happy and went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly! And of course a million thank you to our event manager Helen! You truly are a wedding angel and we can’t say thank you enough. We really appreciate all the effort put in by everyone! Because of you all we have lovely memories of a perfect day!

Lots of love Grace & Guy

Grace and Guy,

To Alli & the South Farm team,

Thank you so much for all your help in the run up to and on our big day! Everyone was so helpful and Alli made everything on the day so easy and stress free. All our guests are still talking about how beautiful South Farm is, we really did have the most perfect day.

Lydia and Sam, 23rd June 2019

Morning Emily,

I hope you are well on this wet and windy day.

We have been bunkered down at a spa since Saturday, but will sadly return to real life today.

We wanted to say a huge thank you to the whole team at South Farm, and especially yourself for guiding us all through the day.

So many of our guests were amazed by the venue and really loved the food which is the exact reaction we hoped for.

Thanks so much,

Hi Becky,

We wanted to thank you all for giving us an amazing wedding day, we loved every minute of it – all of our guests said what a beautiful place.

We have only this week gone back to work after our honeymoon which was amazing too.

Please thank Emily and everyone, can’t thank you all enough.

We will send a few photos that people have taken as we haven’t got ours yet.

Love to all,

Mr & Mrs Gilbert, 2nd June 2019

We had our dream wedding at South Farm ♥️

This was the first and only venue we visited, need I say anymore. Absolutely everyone and everything was amazing and we cannot recommend South Farm enough.

All of our guests were blow away and we are still receiving compliments!

Everyone who works at South Farm should be so proud to be part of such a well-oiled machine. You made our wedding perfect in every way and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Ashleigh & Dan Smith, 31st May 2019

We had the best day we could possibly ask for at South Farm. The staff, food, everything was just simply amazing. Thank you so much to the whole team ❤

Natalie Moody, 27th May 2019

Hello,

Thank you all so much for making our day as perfect as it was.

The whole team have been amazing from booking the venue all the way to the big day.

The food was amazing and Becky did such a good job making sure everything ran smoothly, I couldn’t have been happier with the day.

Thank you all again,

Natalie and Craig xxx,

Cannot thank Summer and all the staff at South Farm enough. We fell in love with South Farm the very first time we visited and could never have imagined our wedding day to be as perfect as it was. The running of the day was faultless, the food was incredible, the staff so friendly and helpful and Summer was the most helpful and organised event manager on our big day.

We have had so many compliments from all our guests on how much they loved the venue and had such a great time! We were extremely lucky with the weather and the grounds at south farm are so beautiful.

We also took South Farm’s advice and hired DJ Gary for our evening entertainment and can honestly say I have never seen a dance floor so full! Thank you all again we wish we could do it all over and over again!

Love,

Lydia and Jordan x, 25th May 2019

We had such a beautiful day – it exceeded both our expectations and so many of my friends and family commented on how relaxed they felt and how much they enjoyed it. It really was the most beautiful setting and we were so lucky with the weather.

Lots of people commented how great you were at keeping water on offer and refilling water jugs which they valued especially due to the hot weather and they commented on how good you were at the little details e.g. my friend had a tickly cough during the ceremony and someone handed her a glass of water which was exactly what she needed and was very grateful for.

When you all do this day in and day out it might be that occasionally someone could feel fatigued but we both felt like everyone there loved their jobs and treated everything with care and made it all feel so special.

I would wholeheartedly recommend South Farm to anyone and look forward to coming back to visit.

Thank you so much,

Alex and Chris (and Daisy) xxx, 23rd May 2019

Dear Emily,

Thank you so much for everything you and the South Farm Team did for us on our Wedding Day. We really did have the best day ever, and you made sure that it ran seamlessly for us and we are so grateful.

Nicola and James, 18th May 2019

Thank you so much for making our big day run so seamlessly and superbly well.

One of the reasons we choose South Farm is because we could see you are a well-oiled machine and care about all the little details that are so important to things running well. This all proved to be the case on our big day and we were delighted with how it all went with no problems at all.

Our guests were very complimentary of South Farm, the venue itself and the running of the day. People loved the food and we had many compliments about the food with one guest saying it was by far the best wedding food he had ever had.

 

Kasia & James, 3rd May 2019

Hi Christine,

Thanks for your email, and a massive thank you to everyone at South Farm for making our day so special, we absolutely loved it.

The organisation, professionalism and attention to detail was something else and we couldn’t have wished for a better venue to host our wedding celebration.

Mike & Lotty, 27th April 2019

To the wonderful Team at South Fam,

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with such an incredible and memorable wedding! Throughout all our planning stages up until execution of our wedding, the team have been absolutely amazing. We couldn’t have wished for more of a special day.

Best wishes from Lotty & Mike Lewis

Lotty & Mike Lewis,

To all at South Farm,

Thank you so much for everything!

We knew straight away that there was no other venue we wanted to our wedding reception at.

From start to finish you made the whole process exciting and stress free.

Your attention to detail is simply amazing and makes everyone – guests and Bridal Party, feel special.

We’re only sad that we can’t do it all over again, but hope to be back one day as guests.

Lots of love,

Gemma & Mark xxx, 26th April 2019

Attended a wedding here on Easter Monday. A fantastic venue, the day went without a hitch due to the fantastic organisation at the venue. Would recommend. The wedding breakfast was wonderful and catered for all dietary requirements. The gardens were lovely to wonder around during the day.

Maxine Hughes (wedding guest), 22nd April 2019

To everyone at South Farm,

South Farm is such a beautiful venue and we feel privileged to have had our wedding day there. Thank you for helping everything run so smoothly on the day. Thank you also for the fantastic food – everyone said it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had!

Mrs & Mrs Ferrari       , 20th April 2019

Hello South Farm,

Ryan and I would like you all to know how thankful we are to the team at South Farm. Our special day was an absolute dream – all we could have hoped for and more. If we didn’t know any better, we would have thought South Farm had organised the absolute gorgeous weather we had last Thursday too! There really aren’t enough words to express our gratitude to everyone involved in the smooth running of the day, but in particular a HUGE THANKS to Emily who supported us in planning and organising and Summer in her friendly and highly skilled management on the day itself. We really wish we could repeat the day every year!

We will be trying our absolute best to convince any newly engaged friends to book with South Farm so we get to come back! ?

All the best to the phenomenal South Farm team,

Ellise & Ryan, 18th April 2019

We cannot recommend South Farm highly enough! All the way from booking our wedding with them over a year before, up until after our big day their customer service was faultless and they made everything so personal!!

Our day was everything we could ever have dreamt of and the staff were incredible – particularly Helga who ensured everything went to plan and was perfect. The venue speaks for itself – it’s absolutely stunning and so unique.

Memories we will cherish forever thanks to South Farm and all its amazing staff! We can’t thank you enough!

From,

Shauna & Jay Nash, 17th April 2019

Hi Summer,

We had an absolute incredible day and was everything we ever dreamed of! We can’t thank Helga and all the staff enough for all their help and making for such a smooth running of the day. All our guests commented on the beauty of the venue and how amazing all the staff were and we couldn’t agree more! Your customer service has been faultless from the day we booked the wedding with you guys! You have helped us create amazing memories we will cherish forever!

Best Wishes,

Shauna & Jay Nash,

Dear Emily, Summer, Helen, Alli and everyone else at South Farm!!!

Firstly, THANK YOU SO MUCH for such an amazing day back in April! The wedding was absolutely incredible and we are still reeling from the efforts, professionalism, and ease from the South Farm Team on the day! We wouldn’t have changed a single moment and are so grateful to you all for making this special day so special! Helen, you were so awesome and thank you for making our friends and family so welcome!!! They all loved it, and have not stopped talking about the wedding, or South Farm since!

I also have to say how wonderfully helpful and supportive you have all been throughout, especially Emily and Alli, and thank you for all of your patience, advice and good humour throughout! Your supplier’s list is incredible, and in using Sarah for Hair and Makeup, Gary for Music, Bea for Photography, and Gray’s Coaches made the day so simple and easy! They are all fantastic at what they do, and we felt so supported throughout! This really is down to your organization and oversight, and is truly impressive…so thank you so much again!

Bea has just sent through the photos from the day and is keen to share them with you too. Please feel free to use any that you would like to, there are some truly stunning photos of the house and buildings! I’m also so happy Bea managed to get so many lovely photos of the little bits and pieces I made for the wedding! I am actually trying to set up a wedding design company, and hope that it will be OK to use some of the photos for my website too. Maybe a bit pie in the sky at this moment, but going for it, and hope to launch in the next few months!

Words can’t describe how wonderful the whole process has been, and how happy Arthur and I are that we chose to get married at South Farm! Sincere thanks to EVERYONE for all of their efforts, and please do pass this on to the incredible team you have!

I feel that I can’t stop saying thank you, and never will…so THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

All the very best,

Reb and Arthur Desbois, 15th April 2019

Dear South Farm,

We cannot thank you enough for helping us to have the most incredible, magical wedding day at your beautiful venue!

Everybody at South Farm was ever so friendly and professional and no question or request was too big of an ask. Our entire planning process was made as straight forward and stress free as possible and we both really enjoyed the experience 🙂

I cannot believe how calm and relaxed I felt on the morning of our wedding, largely due to the meticulous itinerary that South Farm provide. This paved the way for an immensely enjoyable and fuss free day – everything we could have hoped for!

We both made an effort to pop into the kitchen and give our heartfelt thanks to Will, who created a personalised main course for us, please pass on our appreciation once more!

Fabulous setting, food and entertainment – South farm, you were perfect!

Love,

Tom & Sophie Redman x, 12th April 2019

Good evening James,

I am emailing to congratulate you and your team for providing a wonderful venue for our Son, Richard and his new bride Amber. The location and buildings are stunning and efficiently organised.

The food and service of your staff is to be highly commended and Emily provided a friendly but extremely efficient helping hand to the proceedings and no request was too much trouble for her.

We had an amazing day so please pass on our kind thanks to all the staff who made it such a fabulous occasion.

Kind regards

 

Lynn & John Kelly (Groom’s Parents), 6th April 2019

Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone at South Farm for making our wedding day so special. It was just perfect! Wish we could do it all over again. Everything about South Farm is just amazing. Helen was just brilliant on the day taking away all the stress and making sure it all ran smoothly.

Love Mr & Mrs Nolan, 22nd March 2019

Hi,

Martin and I wanted to message to extend a huge thank you to all the amazing team at South Farm for our wedding on the 16 March. We knew the moment we walked round South Farm it was the venue for us, in both the run up to the big day and the big day itself you didn’t disappoint… The day excelled all of our expectations and this wouldn’t have happened without each and every one of you.

We felt incredibly looked after on the day, the food was amazing and no request was too much. I don’t know how you all do it day in day out and still manage to deliver each wedding in the grand scale that you do – speechless.

No words will ever cover how much we would recommend you to anyone and everyone looking to tie the knot.

If you can, enjoy some well-earned rest and thanks again for the memories that will last a lifetime.

Kindest Regards

 

Cara & Martin, 16th March 2019

Dean Helen & all at South Farm,

Thank you all so much for making our day so perfect! It was everything we dreamed of and more!

Helen you did a fantastic job running our day, it was seamless!

Guests commented on the beautiful food, venue and how lovely the staff were!

Thank you all so much,

Love,

Mr & Mrs Norman, 8th March 2019

Dear South Farm,

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to you and your staff for a fantastic wedding on Friday between Colin Norman and Charlotte Winch.  I am Charlotte’s Step-Dad and was helping with the organisation/announcements on the day. Your venue is extremely well run and the events on Friday could not have been better. Your staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and I wanted to say a special thank you to Helen, the Event Manager for the day.  She made the day run very smoothly and I was very disappointed to not thank her personally before she left, so please would you pass on my personal thanks to her.

I’m so glad that Colin and Charlotte chose your venue for their special day. They were so happy with the result – the venue is not only unique, but made the day extra special for them.

Thanks again!

Mike Burchett,

Wonderful in every way – beautiful, fantastic food, superb organisation, very personal and informal, so welcoming and comfortable. A magical place far away from stresses of ordinary life. We absolutely loved South Farm from the first time we arrived in the flower-lined fairy-lit drive, didn’t need to look anywhere else, it was perfect and accommodated all our complex multi-generational requirements without any problems. The tasting evening was one of the best nights out we’ve had! Thoroughly recommend, South Farm is very special.

Sigrid, 2nd March 2019

Hi Summer,

Can we say a huge THANK YOU to you all for making sure our special day was just that. You run such a fabulous and impressive place, every bit was a delight – food, venue, service, accommodation, the whole package. All of our guests commented on how lovely South Farm is, and also how comfortable, easy going, informal and welcoming.

Helga was an awesome Event Manager, I just did as I was told and all was well, it was so nice being looked after so closely the whole day! We will treasure our memories for ever.

We love South Farm and will miss our (frequent in my case) visits.

Warm wishes to all the team,

Sigrid & Derek,

What a wonderful venue – exceptional food and beautiful surroundings are further enhanced with the immense customer service and friendly approach the South Farm team adopt. They will be guaranteed to make your special day even more special than you can possibly imagine.                                                                        

 

Rosie De Courcy Robinson, 23rd February 2019

Hi,

I just couldn’t let a day go by without thanking everyone for making Annie and Charlie’s wedding such a very special/brilliant day

From when we came to visit you and book, I felt we were in safe hands. Everything was taken care of. On THE day Helen, our Events Manager for the day, was excellent looking after everyone and everything, literally – thank you Helen.

We all certainly enjoyed the whole day – but the comments from our friends have been amazing too. The food – fabulous, setting / venue – brilliant; I could go on. Suffice to say that we will not hesitate to highly recommend your colleagues and venue.

THANK YOU again for making it such a special day for Annie, Charlie and us too!!

Best wishes,

Carole and Steve (Bride’s Parents), 17th February 2019

Hi Emily and team,

Hope you had a good weekend.

We had the perfect day at South Farm for our wedding. We had high expectations from when we first visited, and it surpassed even those. There was no job too small for the excellent team leading up to the day. Your organisation and responsiveness to our many questions and requests made our preparations so much easier.

On the day, our Event Manager, Jane, was extremely professional and fantastic at helping everything run smoothly. We were really impressed that every little detail was taken care of – from liaising with our florist and DJ to thoughtfully saving some canapés for the hungry Bride and Groom!

On the subject of food, the three course meal was a real highlight of the day. Many of our guests, completely unprompted, said that it was the best wedding food that they had ever eaten (and we agree!). Even the breakfast the next day for our overnight guests was delicious!

Thank you for making it a truly special, unforgettable day. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend South Farm to any couples who are looking for a beautiful wedding venue.

Best wishes,

Joe & Katie, 16th February 2019

I honestly don’t know where to start but South Farm is the most amazing venue! Despite all the weddings they hold they are so organised and think of every little thing. Special thanks to Emily and Alli who helped us with the organisation and planning and a huge thank you to Helen our Event Manager on the day for being just so fantastic! The team really are amazing! They go above and beyond to give you the most individual day.                    

Kerrie Howard, 11th February 2019

To Emily & everyone at South Farm,

You guys are all incredible!

Emma & Josh Crane xxx, 9th February 2019

Literally THE best place to hold your wedding.

The venue is stunning and beautiful without having to do anything to it, it’s rustic charm brings something extra special to your day. The added bonus of all the animals just makes this venue so unique- we can’t wait to see our photos with the piglets!

All the staff at the venue are incredible, literally cannot do enough for you.

For our wedding they went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect and ran smoothly due to allergies and pregnancies- literally had nothing to worry about.

Everyone is so friendly and will help in any way you need them to, or will sit back and allow you to just get on with it.

Food was exquisite and all our guests complimented on how good it was.

We couldn’t recommend this venue highly enough!

Gemma Chaffey, 7th February 2019

Hi all,

First of all we just want to say thank you so much for everything you did for us on the run up to the wedding and on the day- you were all amazing!!

You all literally went above and beyond to help with our nut allergy making sure everything was nut free, accepting that you couldn’t serve certain alcohol, changing the food, checking the soaps and lotions, making sure your staff hadn’t eaten nuts- this was literally just amazing and I personally really can’t thank you enough for all of that, you made it so comfortable for me and my sister knowing that she was safe and could just enjoy herself, so thank you.

Thank you for allowing us to do something new that you’d never done before with the shot table when everyone walked in, the way you worked with me to make this how we wanted was just brilliant, it was exactly how we wanted, and thank you to the staff for setting that up, it was perfect!

Helga we wanted to thank you for making our day amazing- you were fantastic on the day!! We literally had to worry about nothing with you running our day, you made it all seam free and problem free. You made sure we always had what we needed, honestly you made the day perfect, so thank you so much.

We had the best day and morning after, so thank you all very much, we absolutely loved our wedding day and was so sad when it was over- we wanted to do it all again!

We couldn’t recommend you enough to other people and I know everyone that came to our wedding said how stunning the venue was.

Thank you so much once again- we had an amazing day and that was all due to you and your amazing team at South Farm ?

Thanks,

Gemma & Lee xx,

Dear Helga,

Just a short note to thank you very much for all of your help & the smooth running of my daughter’s wedding day on the 19th of Jan (Hayley & Joe)

Please pass on a huge thanks to all involved on making my daughter’s wedding day amazing from the kitchen staff, waiting staff & everyone else.
