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.

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, 4th July 2019

I got married on 30th June 2019 and it was honestly the wedding of my dreams.

South farm went above and beyond and I honestly could not recommend them enough. An extra special mention to Summer who made sure everything ran smoothly she was so professional, caring and nothing was too much trouble, I cannot thank you enough! 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!

Our daughter got married at South Farm on Sunday 30th June.

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.

Definitely recommend South Farm 100%, it’s AMAZING!!

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

Emily – thanks so much for all of your help in the lead up. You made me feel so calm and in control.

Summer – thank you so much for all of your help on the day and being so lovely and kind and keeping us on track (as much as you could!)

I want to say a very big thank you to each and every one of you at South Farm.

Sarah and Niall were married on Friday 14th June 2019.

You made it such a wonderful day for everyone.

The weather was perfect and South Farm shone in the sunlight.

Happy memories are the most important things we hold.

Thank you again,

Aileen Hills (Mother of Bride), 14th 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,

Paul and Suzanne, 8th June 2019

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 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

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 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

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

A very special thanks goes to Helen, whose coordination and expertise was professional, caring and was second to none.  Thank you!!

Wishing you all the best for future events.

Kindest regards,

Brian & June Kilby (Bride’s Parents),

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,

We just wanted to say ‘Thank You’ so much for helping us throw our wedding. We had the best & most beautiful day of our lives!! Emily, thank you for making everything feel so effortless and for being there every step of the way!

You guys are all incredible!

 

Love                                                                                                                      

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,
