We love it 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 sixteenth year, nearly half of our enquiries are by word of mouth.
I cannot fully express just how wonderful our wedding at South Farm was on the 24th July 2021! All of our guests absolutely raved about the beautiful venue, the fantastic service and exquisite food.
Michelle was our event planner for the day and everything was just seamless. Somehow Michelle even made the sun come out!! it really was everything we had dreamed about and more. I would recommend South Farm in a heartbeat
We would recommend this venue in a heartbeat. From the moment we set eyes on South Farm, we knew we had to get married there! The team were absolutely incredible and the day run so smoothly, we didn’t have to think or worry about a thing. Our event manager, Helen, was outstanding even on the hottest day of the year! After such a difficult year for the wedding industry, South Farm still had its magic and has come back even stronger Thank you for the bottom of our hearts.
South Farm is honestly the most amazing wedding venue! My (now) husband and I, live in Dubai and had the fun of not only planning a wedding from abroad, but also during Covid times. However, South Farm made this a piece of cake. From clear and informative communication over email and Zoom calls, to running the wedding day so efficiently and seamlessly. As Chirs said in his speech, "Thank you South Farm. We could have not asked for a better wedding venue." Everyone we have had contact with at South Farm has been extremely professional, helpful and passionate. I would like to say a special thank you to Hayley who ensured our whole day ran smoothly and was always so smiley and welcoming.
Food is a big part of our life and we spend lots of our time hunting down the best places to eat, whether it's a tiny hidden cafe, street food or a Michelin Star Restaurant. For our wedding breakfast, we opted for the Thai Banquet and it was absolutely stunning food. Every dish was mouth-watering with lovely zesty Thai flavours. All our guests commented on the freshness and vibrancy of the food and how refreshing it was to eat something a little less traditional at a wedding. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who works at South Farm. You certainly gave us our dream wedding and Covid did not dampen South Farm's spirits in the slightest.
The farm...wow, wow, wow! We were super lucky that the weather was amazing, however, I fell in love with South Farm on a grey and gloomy January morning. I honestly think the farm would shine on any day of the year. The little pigs were so gorgeous to visit and definitely entertained our smallest guests. In fact, the kids were not seen for most of the day as they were busy exploring the farm!
I would personally like to give a big shout out to our incredible photographer Gavin Hardy! Gav's work speaks for itself. It is more than incredible and I have only seen 2 photographs so far that he has kindly leaked to us. I can't wait to see all the other photos.
To conclude, we had the most incredible wedding day full of fun, love and laughter. Thank you South Farm.
My husband and I can’t recommend South Farm enough!
We knew the moment we visited South Farm for the first time that’s where we wanted to celebrate our wedding reception. The location is stunning, the grounds are expansive, the exclusive venue use is out of this world, the piglets!!!… and other animals melted our hearts.
The staff were professional, supportive and encouraged us throughout, which was very much needed having postponed a full year due to covid. We had expected to have a restriction free wedding, then pot luck our wedding date fell 4 days before the government restrictions were lifted… but the staff at South Farm were amazing, they communicated with us throughout, and on the day helped bring our vision to life. Summer was our co-ordinator on the day and she was fantastic!
Thank you to Summer and the whole team at South Farm.
Having postponed our wedding from 2020 to July this year due to COVID. The emails back and forth and the uncertainty of whether we could have a ‘normal’ wedding, left us with fear and anxiety! However when the day came, none of that mattered!! We had the BEST DAY and the level of service received by the South Farm team was AMAZING. From the moment we arrived and up till leaving, the service was 5 star!!! Our friends and family were so impressed too and the food was BEAUTIFUL!! And a big shout out to Michelle for being such a FUN events manager on the day!! We wish you all the very best for the future!
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
