What can I say about South Farm…
I visited South Farm just over 3 years ago with the interest of booking it for our wedding and WOW, it is absolutely beautiful, we booked it within the week!
Throughout the planning process, South farm were ever so helpful, answered any questions we had very quickly and thoroughly. The food tasting was organised so well and as a bonus the food tasted AMAZING Our wedding was one of the first to be effected by the Pandemic with our original date being in May 2020. South Farm were so helpful and understanding as we were to them. They really helped us and reassured us everything was going to be ok. We postponed 5 times and every single time they were on the ball and very helpful.
At last, we finally had our wedding day on the 11th June 2021, my event manager was Helen, and oh my goodness it was all organised so well, the day went PERFECTLY all thanks to Helen, making sure everything was ready in the background whilst I could relax and get ready.
Christine, Becky, Emily, Michelle, Hayley and Helen (and others!) thank you so so so much for making our dream wedding a reality. We are so grateful to you for all of your help and support. We hope we can come back and visit soon, South Farm was worth the wait
We just wanted to share a few of our photos from our wedding ceremony on 12 December ..... we feel so lucky and privileged that we were able to get married in these strange times ... especially as we live in a Tier 4 area now.
Our Event Manager Michelle was an absolute star and couldn’t have done anymore to make our day special.
Thanks again for everyone’s help and support on the day.
Speak soon and take care

Matt and I just wanted to pop an email to say how absolutely incredible everything was yesterday. Helen was totally amazing. Very attentive and friendly. Every staff member made a day that was not as planned feel like the most special day ever and we wanted to thank everyone for that too.
The food was amazing and everyone complimented on how tasty it was and well presented.
We would recommend South farm to anyone it is the most magical place on earth.
Love Matt and Charlotte xx
Words cannot express how grateful we are for all the hard work the team at South Farm put into making our wedding day so perfect.From beginning to end, the attention to detail, personal touch, and support was brilliant - we really appreciate everything they did for us.
The venue looked stunning, everything was perfectly on time, the food was absolutely delicious, and every member of the South Farm team was a delight to be around. No request was too much.
We understand this has been a difficult time, but we were impressed by the professionalism and kindness that the whole team have shown us throughout
Special thanks also to the in house DJ - DJ Gary who was totally supportive throughout the process and understanding when we had to scale down our wedding.
We had a really lovely wedding reception at South Farm last Saturday. We initially decided upon this venue for its beautiful outdoor space and the number of guests it could welcome. Of course no one could foresee the Coronavirus situation, but we have been so impressed by South Farm’s response with their packages for smaller weddings. Even with a reception 1/6 of our intended size (and in the rain!) the space was used very well so that the reception still felt lively. The food was outstanding, the staff as welcoming as ever, and some of our friends could still stay over and enjoy a stroll around in the grounds with us in the morning.
Thanks South Farm for showing us that ‘good things come in small packages’!!!
We planned to get married on 29th April at South farm, but due to covid we had to postpone.
South farm were incredible throughout the entire process! They kept us in the loop with everything, and held our hands as our dream of a massive wedding had to be altered.
Our new date was 30th September, planned for 30 people- a huge reduction from the original 150, but we knew that South farm would still make it perfect for us!
Well, just for fun, the government decided to change restrictions again from 28th September and we were left with the predicament of reducing to just 15 people, a near enough impossible option for us as our immediate family is so huge.
We were heart broken at the thought of another set back, and after coming so close this time we didn't really know what options we were left with.
And this is where the real magic of South farm, and how accommodating they are really sets in... amazingly they had availability for us to bring our day forward and get married with 30 people on 25th September.
With their incredible help and support (especially Emily and Helen) we managed to pull together the most beautiful, perfect, and intimate wedding within 2 days!
We're still on a massive wedding day buzz now.
I'd get married here all day every day if I could.
Thank you all so much for giving us the most perfect day.
You really do go above and beyond, especially in these challenging times, you still made us feel like royalty x
As soon as we arrived at South Farm for the initial walk-round we knew it was the place for us, and by the time we left we had fallen in love with it and didn’t need to even look elsewhere.
The staff really are like one big family and every single one of them will do anything to help make your day as special as possible. They are organised, professional, enthusiastic, positive, attentive, efficient and experts in their own areas. They literally are the dream team and from start to finish they all make you feel like yours is the only wedding going on in the world!
The organic food is amazing and is mainly home-grown on-site at South Farm, you are always welcome to look around the smallholding, nothing is hidden away and everything is so well maintained and loved, it really shows. The animals are adorable and it is clear that their welfare comes above anything, which is hugely important to us.
The venue speaks for itself, it is just stunning, inside and out, whatever the season. A huge amount of hard work must go on behind the scenes in keeping everything looking so great but it all feels so natural with effortless countryside beauty.
To summarise, we cannot recommend South Farm highly enough, it’s literally our perfect venue and our wedding day was simply perfect, even in times like these, so thank you all.
We got married at South Farm in August and we can't recommend them enough!
The venue is just so beautiful but it's the team that makes this place special. Nothing is out of the question and they have a truly individual approach.
We loved this personable treatment as having viewed other venues and been to wedding fayres a lot of places felt very formulaic and we didn't want a churned out, identikit 'cookie cutter' wedding, we wanted to get married somewhere that felt like 'us'.
South Farms 'Distinctly Different' motto was perfect for us and we loved sharing ideas with the team about making our day just right for us, from the veggie menu we created, to the decor and the special drinks, everything was exactly how we wanted it.
Whilst this year has been really tough for wedding planning and the industry as a whole South Farm stayed calm and informed keeping us up to date on the changing government restrictions and were prepared and forward thinking with what they could offer throughout.
We had our wedding with 30 people and within all the government guidelines of the time but it was still our perfect big day and we're so glad we went ahead.
Whilst the planning felt fun and easy, the day itself was also a breeze with South Farms event planning team running the event like clockwork without you realising so that you can kick back and just enjoy! A big thank you to Michelle who kept everything running smoothly on our day! I didn't even have chance to feel anxious or panic about anything as it felt like everything was sorted for me!
It was truly special, thank you South Farm!
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!
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.
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.
Louise and Steve
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!
We had our beautiful wedding here on Thursday. Francesca and I enjoyed it so much and Michelle and Helga were on top form.
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!

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
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
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!!
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
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.
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.
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.
Chris & Karen Garrett.
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!
