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.


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

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, 8th March 2019

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


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!



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 😘


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)

Thanks to you & all of your staff the day went off amazingly & a thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all!         

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.

Once again, many thanks!!

Best wishes,

Don Simpson (Father of Bride), 19th January 2019

Dear Emily & the South Farm team,

Just a quick email to say THANK YOU so much for all of your help on Saturday. We had the best day ever, even better than either of us could have ever wished for.

The day went past seamlessly and without any issue whatsoever. All of our guests commented about how amazing South Farm was as a venue & also how good the food was – the evening kebabs in particular went down a treat after quite a few beers/wines were consumed!

Also, a huge thank you/shout out to your supplier list. We got DJ Gary, Origins Florist & the amazing Tom Halliday off this. All were fantastic and we can’t stop looking through the photos.

I can’t thank you guys enough – keep on doing what you all do so well!!

Lots & of love

Katie & Josh, 29th December 2018

To the entire South Farm team,

Thank you so much for making our wedding the best day of our lives. From the moment we decided to have our wedding at South Farm, we have been nothing but blown away by the level of service and friendliness shown by all members of the team.

The organisation on the lead up to the day was effortless and handled with such professionalism. This made our preparations so much easier and stress free, allowing us to enjoy every minute of it.

The day itself ran like clockwork, we can only put down to the fantastic staff, and in particular, our Event Manager, Summer. She was extremely helpful and managed the whole event without any issue. We really cannot sing all your praises enough.

The venue and business run like a well-oiled machine and we will be recommending you to everyone and anyone we can.

Thanks again,

Lian and Dan x, 8th December 2018

Good morning Helen,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did on Friday to ensure our special day was a huge success. Nothing was too much trouble and you always checked with us and put our minds at ease. The entire team working at South Farm on Friday were just fantastic. We had the time of our lives and now want to do it all over again.

Once again thank you so very much for everything.

Kirstie & Lee xx, 30th November 2018


Thanks so much and thanks for making the day so special. The venue was absolutely amazing and all the staff, especially Emily were fantastic. The day literally couldn’t have gone better and all the guests were saying how great the food and venue were.

All the best,

Phil & Iona, 24th November 2018

Hi Alli,

We just wanted to say thank you for everything you did to make our day so special yesterday, we honestly had the best day of our lives. From just making sure I was ok in the morning, telling me where I needed to be throughout the day to seamlessly taking cards out of my hand as I was speaking to guests and putting them away, you were amazing! Honestly can’t thank you enough for making the day run so smoothly.

Thank you so much

James and Rachel, 9th November 2018

Hello South Farm,

Donald and I would like to say a massive thank you for making our wedding day so special.

Helga was wonderful, making sure the day ran smoothly, and keeping so calm!

We had a fair few very small children at our wedding, and anybody in a similar situation, I cannot recommend South Farm enough. There are so many great suggestions on their suppliers’ page on how to keep small children occupied and happy, and their food options are stunning. Our young guests had so much fun visiting all the animals, and loved the food.

The whole day was perfect. And South Farm was 100% the right, and best choice, for our wedding!

Felicity and Donald, 7th November 2018

Russ and I wanted to thank you all so very much for letting us use your perfect venue.

Our day was so lovely – everything we hoped for. You have such attention to detail. All of your staff are excellent.

Thank you Emily for looking after us so well – you made it so easy for us. You were wonderful – professional, but always friendly and kind. Especially when I presented you with 4 very, very last-minute drop outs!!!

With love to you all and Emily, 

Sue and Russ xx, 28th October 2018

Hi South Farm,

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at South Farm for making Sarah and Adam’s wedding day such an incredible celebration.

Sarah and Adam knew they wanted their wedding to be at your venue on their visit day. However, they decided look at  one other venue  just in case. Don’t know why they did that! Sarah was not interested in the other place at all. Her Dad commented to her as we left the other venue, “South Farm is just you Sarah. It’s higgledy piggledy” by which he meant it was quirky! So glad we then went ahead and booked you!

The venue looked stunning so many guests commented on this. The food was exceptional especially the scotch eggs which we hear are now on the menu. It’s so important to feed your guests well and you did that for us.

Sarah and Adam and her sibling’s favourite moment was visiting the pigs. It made their day especially when the bride got pig poo all over her hand.

Please pass on our sincerest gratitude to all your staff. You have an amazing team! Everyone I have spoken to at South Farm did their best to accommodate our requests and sorted everything calmly, efficiently and swiftly.

I would especially like to say a big thank you to Alli the wedding planner. She made the day absolutely perfect!


Kathryn and Andy Clarkson (Bride’s Parents), 27th October 2018

If you’re thinking of getting married don’t look anywhere else just go ahead and book South Farm. Our daughter was married there on Saturday 27 October 2018.

The venue is stunning! All our guests were blown away by how pretty it looked and the fantastic food! The staff were amazing, especially Alli the Event Manager. She looked after us all and went beyond our expectations!

We had the perfect day at the perfect venue. Sarah and Adam’s love just shone through. They knew South Farm was their venue the first time they saw it. I didn’t want to leave the morning after the wedding just wish I could live there!! ?     

Kathryn Clarkson (Mother of Bride),

All the team at South Farm,

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

Helga, thank you so so much for making our day run so smoothly. It really was the most perfect day. We wouldn’t change a single thing. It was AMAZING!

Love from,

Leonard & Hayley Piper, 25th October 2018

Dear Emily and all of the South Farm team,

Thank you for all of your help on our big day. It was more perfect than we ever imagined. You made everything run seamlessly, we couldn’t have asked for more.

All of our guests loved the venue, especially the food. We even lucked out with the weather 🙂 

Love from,

Becca & Jamie, 20th October 2018

Dear South Farm,

Thank you so much for everything you did for us with planning our big day. You guys were amazing!


Lora & Gareth, 19th October 2018

To Becky, Alli, Emily & all of the fabulous people working so hard at South Farm!

Where to begin?! From the very first time we visited South Farm we knew this was the place we needed to get married, not only because of the beautiful estate and immaculate gardens but because of the people… You guys! Over the years we’ve heard so many glowing reviews about South Farm weddings & I am so happy that we can now add ours to the list! You completely exceeded our expectations from the planning process (Alli, Emily & Becky, you are saints! You put up with sooo many emails, phone calls and nonsensical messages from me!) to the wedding day itself WE HAD THE MOST AMAZING DAY!!!!!

We’re both quite shy people, so we’re thrilled that the amazing venue & high level of service South Farm provides outshone us on the day! We’re still hearing so many stories & glowing reviews from our guests!

LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING! You thought of things before we did & then some!

It was everything we wanted, could have wished for & more!

We can’t thank you enough for giving us the most amazing wedding day & in turn memories that we will treasure for a very long time.

With love & many thanks,

Xx Annalisa & Matthew xx, 13th October 2018

Hi Becky!

I hope you are well 🙂

Now that we are fully back at work & our honeymoon is a distant memory… I just want to say a huge thank you for essentially creating our wedding day!

You ran the day so smoothly & was such a calming presence to have nearby! Thank you so much for sorting of the little things, like getting my Dad his buttonhole!! & I’m sure many other things that I wasn’t even aware of!

You were complimented so highly by my friends and family; the resounding comment from the day was how smoothly everything ran, which I know is down to you and your team, so thank you a million times. You’ve given us the best memory of such a great day.

Thank you so much for being apart & helping make our wedding day so very very very special & something we will never forget.

Lots of love,

Annalisa & Matthew xx,

Hi Becky,

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU on behalf of my husband (that’s weird) and I, and actually from all of our guests too, for the most amazingly perfect day we had on Friday! 

All staff at South Farm are excellent!  We thoroughly enjoyed our day and our guests were amazed by the venue, food, staff and how well everything was run.  It was such a privilege to share with them, something that we have planned for the past (almost) 2 years, with your help.  It goes without saying that we wanted to do it all over again when we woke up on Saturday and would not change 1 thing, not even the weather…  Even though we’d had our hearts set on getting married outside, I’m so pleased we didn’t; when I walked down the aisle I whispered to my Dad ‘YES!  This is exactly how I pictured it all to look.’ 

Helen – Thank you so much for being there for us all day, and making sure we had everything we wanted and more 🙂 Your attention to detail, yet relaxed attitude really did make us feel so comfortable and fully let us experience the day, as we knew you had everything under control…  Even when we changed a few things on the morning.  Thank you for putting up with us, and our guests! 

The kitchen staff – I’m so sorry I didn’t get names.  Thank you for keeping me relaxed before I headed down the aisle, and the lovely ‘congratulations’ as we walked back through your prep time as husband and wife.  I can only imagine how easy it would be to continue working on our amazing meal, it was such a cute touch for you to acknowledge us.  All we can say about the food is WOW!  The compliments from every single one of our guests have been amazing, please keep doing what you’re doing!  The food was simply perfect! 

The waiting and bar staff – Thank you for your speedy service with smiles, and for putting up with all of our guests.  I hope none of them were too annoying, or got too much in your way. This should include the lovely lady who was with us at breakfast, nothing was too much trouble and she seemed genuinely happy for us 🙂

I know I will have forgotten someone to thank so please just thank everyone involved at South Farm, it truly was the BEST DAY EVER and we will be forever grateful for the work put in to keeping this venue as it is.  When we booked Lee Smith, our magician who I know you all know well, he said to us that he’s convinced South Farm is run by magic elves and I have to say, it definitely feels that way!

Everything from the welcome we received on Thursday when arriving for set up, to the efficiency of turning the barn around, to coming back to the Bridal Suite to a bottle of bubbly and a card…  There are no words and I don’t know how to really show our gratitude, it was everything we imagined it would be and more, from start to finish 🙂

Thank you, thank you, thank you!


Love from Mr and Mrs Davison x, 12th October 2018

I would like to say a personal thank you to Summer who did such a great job looking after all of us and making sure we were all where we should be! Which at times I’m sure was difficult. Summer handled everyone with patience, calm and professionalism even when cornered by inebriated bridesmaids!

Thank you again for making Emma and Pete’s day one to remember.

Kind regards


Lisa Houghton, 7th October 2018

Hi Summer,

We had an incredible wedding day, thank you so much to everyone at South Farm for making the day so perfect.

All our guests commented on how lovely South Farm is, and the staff were fantastic both in the lead up and on our wedding day. It really was the perfect venue with the perfect setting for our day, and even the weather co-operated!

Everyone says something will go wrong on the day but we were so lucky nothing did and it’s all because of how great the team are. The day ran so smoothly and it was so nice and relaxed, everything we dreamed of, so please pass on our massive thanks to all of the team for everything they did for us!

Thanks you again for providing us with such an amazing wedding day we shall never forget.

Kind regards,

Ellie & Matt, 5th October 2018

What can we say! A magnificent day was had by all!

Thank you all so much for the constant chasing we needed, the professionalism of ALL South Farm staff, the friendly hard working waiters/waitresses, domestic staff, kitchen chefs and staff and all of you busy bees working so tirelessly in the office getting things just right!

You nailed it 100%, special thanks to Helen who was a dream coordinator!

We love everything South Farm is, the surroundings the animals, the flora and fauna, its vibe is what we love!

Thank you again stars!

Kindest regards,

Leila and Lee Harris xx, 28th September 2018

So we got married 23rd September 2018. I cannot recommend this place enough! Totally worked like clockwork everything and everyone was looked after and the day went so smoothly. I loved every single minute the best day ever

Rebecca Scott, 23rd September 2018

Hi South Farm

I just wanted to send a massive thank you to everyone at South Farm.

Having chosen South Farm as our venue we had high expectations and you exceeded them in every way.

Emily was absolutely fantastic on the day as was every member of staff, so professional, friendly and helpful.

We were made to feel like it was our home for 24 hours and the day was just perfect (despite the weather!)

Breakfast the next morning was such a lovely way to finish and I was so impressed how hard your team worked not only during the day and evening but after the wedding tidying everything into the horse barn making Sunday morning nice and relaxing and a great way to finish.

So many of our guests commented how fantastic the venue was, like us I am sure everyone who was there will have no hesitation recommending South Farm.

Please share this with Emily and all your team who helped to make Saturday 22nd September the most amazing day we could have wished for!

Once again,

Thank You x

Terry Hawthorn (Bride’s Father), 22nd September 2018

Dear Emily,

Just wanted to say THANK YOU!

You have been absolutely amazing over the past few months and we feel truly honoured to be able to work with you on our wedding.

South Farm is an amazing venue in itself, but it is the superb staff that make it shine. Wishing you lots of success in the future 🙂 

Maggie & Simon, 17th September 2018

To all at South Farm (and especially Emily who ran our day so perfectly)

Thank you SO much! We can’t put into words how over the moon we are with how the wedding day went. Every element was just as we imagined and more! And South Farm looked so stunning! Me, Steve and all of our guests were so very happy. There’s not a single photo where me and Steve don’t have the biggest grins! Compliments also to the Chefs! The vegan food was divine and everyone loved it!


Sam & Steve Walker-Arends, 15th September 2018

To Helen & everyone at South Farm,

We wanted to say a massive ‘Thank You’ for everything that made our wedding day so special <3

We both knew when we first came to view South Farm that we wanted to get married there & everything from the food, to the setting up, to the organisation behind the scenes made the whole day run seamlessly & have the relaxed vibe we both wanted <3

Our guests continue to talk about how beautiful everything was – especially the fab BBQ food & the breakfast with our close friends and family the morning after, it just rounded everything off so well <3

Helen couldn’t do enough for us on the day – thanks especially to her <3

Thanks for the beautiful memories, much love to you all.                                                                                                                                         

Grace & Craig (Mr & Mrs Davis) x, 14th September 2018

Hi Emily,

We just wanted to send you a quick email before shooting off to Canada to say a massive thank you to you and all the staff at South Farm. We have had so many superb comments from our family and friends about the venue and the service but mostly about you and how you controlled the whole event with such precision. It was really impressive and it was noticed by a lot of people.

We really had the best day – even without the outdoor wedding – we couldn’t have hoped for more. You made everything very easy and relaxed for us and we are so grateful.


Chris and Clare xx, 8th September 2018

So sorry for the delay in sending this email; we would just like to thank the whole South Farm team for giving us the most amazing Wedding day!

Everything from start to finish went so perfectly, Summer was so lovely and made everything run so smoothly, everyone commented on the amazing organisation. Even during the planning process we felt a priority with all our needs and questions, we know how many weddings you must be planning daily yet we still felt important!

The food was amazing and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it, we have never had wedding food like it!

We didn’t want the day to end, everything was so beautiful and went more perfect then we had hoped and imagined, we wish we could do it all again!

Thank you for making our wedding day so special and unforgettable!

Best wishes

Georgia and Broc, 6th September 2018

I can’t thank South Farm enough. They provided the most wonderful setting for our special day & I’m so thankful to all the staff that helped along the way – Helga you were amazing! Shout out to Alli & Emily too! Luke & I fell for the venue the first time we ever saw it & I was so sad to leave the morning after. I just hope someone I know chooses to marry there so I have an excuse to go back


Zoe Warburton, 5th September 2018

To Emily & everyone else at South Farm,

Thank you so much for all of your help at our wedding! It all went perfectly despite the rain! Emily, thank you for all of the little touches that made it extra special! Having dessert in the room before bed was brilliant!

I’m so glad we chose South Farm. We will be recommending you to everyone!

Love, Mr & Mrs Baldar xx, 1st September 2018

To Alli and the rest of the team at South Farm,

It’s hard to put into words how much we want to thank everyone involved in making our day so special.

From the beautiful venue to the amazing food, and the super cute piglets, everything was wonderful!

Alli, you were so perfectly helpful and calming, we can’t thank you enough for everything.

And Rob, thank you for working super hard for the whole day!

Our day was perfect from start to finish and we couldn’t be happier.

Love always,


Mr & Mrs Hutcheon,

Hi Sarah & Helen,

I just wanted to email to thank you both so much for all you did for us on our wedding day! You were both brilliant and calmed us down throughout everything. You were both true professionals and did an incredible job, we couldn’t have asked for more!

I’d also like to thank everyone at South Farm, particularly Alli, Emily, Becky and Summer for all their help and answering all of my millions of questions always followed with a smiley face emoji! 🙂

We can’t thank you enough and you are all a credit to South Farm, I’d recommend the venue and service to anyone!

Thanks again

Hannah, 24th August 2018

To Summer & the amazing South Farm team,

Just a little note to say a HUGE thank you for playing such an important part in our truly magical day. Everyone at south Farm is so lovely and beyond helpful. The venue is stunning and we honestly had the best day ever! So cliché but totally true too! 🙂 

Summer, thank you for EVERYTHING! You are an absolute star. The day wouldn’t have been the same without you.

We are so beyond grateful! Thank you!

Keep making lots of Bride’s and Groom’s days amazing!

Lots of love,

Kirsty & Alex x x x, 22nd August 2018

Hi Becky,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the whole team at South Farm, we honestly had the best day & everyone is so friendly, organised & efficient! It was just a dream!

Please say the biggest of Thank You’s to Summer who we both love!! She is incredible! Also Jono, who became part of my workforce on Tuesday haha, he was fab, funny & did whatever I needed him to!! 🙂

We can’t thank you all enough!!!


Kirsty and Alex x,

The most amazing experience! Venue, food, helpful staff, cooperation, and all time fantastic day!!! Can’t adequately describe what a marvellous experience the whole thing turned out to be! Professional and entrancing experience. 

Maureen Williams,

I don’t know how to sum up our experience of South Farm in such a short post, BUT I’ll try… We had the best day EVER, and loved every moment! South Farm runs like clockwork, they have dedicated, fun and friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble! Becky sold the venue to us instantly with her professional, knowledgeable and friendly manner. Emily helped with our planning process and kept things fun whilst sorting the smaller, finer details and Summer was honestly the perfect wedding coordinator! We didn’t make it easy for her, we had a LOT going on but she stayed bubbly, and professional throughout and ensured i didn’t need to worry! Also Jono who was and probably always is behind the scenes needs a shout out, he helped with a lot of the set up and was funny, helpful and organised! We love you all and can’t thank you enough!!!

Kirsty Jones,

We celebrated our big day on Monday 6th August 2018. When we first visited South Farm we knew no other venue could compare. We looked at a few but nothing came close. Since the day we booked to the day of the wedding and even after South Farm have been fantastic. The staff have been amazing and at every step of the way they’ve been informative, easy to deal with just basically perfect. The day went without a hitch and pretty much every guest comment on how lovely South Farm was. It’s also worth considering their recommended suppliers as they have such great knowledge of the venue and they definitely helped make the day what it was! A BIG Thank You South Farm for helping us make some amazing memories! 

Dan Bryan ? ? ?, 6th August 2018

We had THE most amazing day at South Farm, nothing was too much trouble, our wedding coordinator Alli was amazing and we just had such a magical time. The food is amazing… we had lamb and it was divine. We wish we could come back and do it all over again!!!!


Emily Gill, 5th August 2018

I attended my Brother’s wedding at South Farm on the 29th July and it was beautiful. The venue itself, the accommodation, the food and the setting were faultless. We would highly recommend this as a wedding venue x

Bryony Black, 29th July 2018

Dear Summer

We had a lovely wedding at South Farm – Emily was excellent & made everything run really smoothly – one of our guests even asked for availability for their wedding!!

Many thanks once again,

Love Sarah, 28th July 2018

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


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

To all of the wonderful staff at South Farm,

Thank you for making our day so special. We had an absolute blast! Couldn’t have picked a better venue.

Lots of Love,

Sam & Jem xxx, 5th July 2018

My husband and I got married at South farm on July 1st this year and we couldn’t have asked for a better venue! The day went without flaw from start to finish and it was the best day of our lives! The staff (especially Becky) are incredible and we are still receiving compliments from our guests about the day. We couldn’t have made a better choice in picking South farm and would highly recommend it to anybody considering booking their wedding there!


Sofa Paz Wright, 1st 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


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.

To the South Farm team,

THANK YOU!! We would like to thank you all for our beautiful wedding at South Farm on 18th May 2018.

The day was absolutely perfect, and this was down to all of the brilliant staff – especially our Event Manager, Summer. Thank you for helping to make our wedding an amazing and stress-free experience. It was so reassuring to know that every little details was covered and everything ran seamlessly. Many of our guests commented on how they loved the venue – the beautiful gardens and stunning food!

Thank you again!


Tom & Joanne Young xx, 18th May 2018

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


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,

Emily & all at South Farm!

Just a little note to say the BIGGEST thank you for making our day so special! We appreciate all of the hard work, thought and effort that you put in.

Emily we couldn’t have wished for a better person to manage the day, you made us feel so at ease and we had so many people comment on how lovely & helpful you were!

Thanks so so much,

Kieran & Becky xxx, 26th April 2018

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 Emily and the South Farm team,

We can’t begin to thank you enough for giving us the most incredible wedding day! As soon as we drove down the fairy light lit drive we knew that South Farm was the venue for us, you just get that amazing gut feeling when you’re there that just couldn’t be beaten, and the incredible barns and grounds help as well!

Emily, you were amazing! We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us from answering all our many questions to making sure we were all set with our timings, and making everything run like clockwork on the day! We were so calm and didn’t have to worry about a thing and that was all down to you, so thank you so so much! You were so lovely from the start and made us feel completely at ease and we were so happy when it was you running our actual wedding day.

We had the most perfect day! So a MASSIVE thank you to every single person at South Farm who made the day possible and helped it run like clockwork! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day at such an incredibly beautiful venue!

You really are one of a kind and we can’t wait for a day when we can hopefully come back as wedding guests!!

Thank you again!

Hannah & Ross Clarke xxx, 13th April 2018

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,
