Frequently Asked Questions

Can we have our wedding on a weekday?

We're afraid not, we'll only be holding a limited number of wedding events each year which will be held on Saturdays only.

Can we run our own buffet or BBQ?

You will only be allowed to use professional caterers with liability insurance and experience in catering outdoor weddings, they will also need to provide a catering tent or food truck. As with all other suppliers, we'll liaise with whoever you choose for your catering requirements well before your wedding date.

When can we arrive on site and what are the finishing times?

You'll be exclusively hiring the venue all day Saturday with access on Friday from 12pm until 8pm. This will be for a small group of you to come and dress the tables and tipis etc. and to make sure everything is in order for the next day.

If you require early morning access on the Saturday for any finishing touches, that's absolutely fine.

 

All live music (band/singer) must finish at 10.00pm. All other amplified music (DJs/playlists) must finish at 11.00pm but If you choose to use our own silent disco equipment, this will end at midnight. We recommend at least 2 hours of silent disco as your guests will LOVE it! (You can have both a DJ/playlist playing on our sound-system and silent disco at the same time for a super smooth transition).

 

The party will be finished by midnight. You and your guests must have vacated the farm by 12.30am.

On the Sunday you’ll be able to collect any personal belongings/decorations etc. between 9am and 1pm. Alternatively, you could leave your belongings in our secure storage facility and arrange with us to collect them (on a weekday) the following week. Your guests will be required to collect their vehicles from our car park by 12 noon.

 

What kind of entertainment can we have?

When choosing entertainment such as a DJ or a band they must have liability insurance with up to date PAT tested equipment, they will need to be professionals with experience in playing at wedding functions and also have respect/mindfulness regarding volume control and the farmland surroundings. We can help and discuss this with you before booking your entertainment.

Can we bring dogs?

We're dog friendly but unfortunately as we are a working farm we can't have dogs running around the site off lead. However there are dog-minders that can come and babysit your pup for the day or you could have someone bring your pooch just for the ceremony and photos etc.

If this is something you have in mind please discuss with us before booking a minder as we cannot promise to allow dogs on to our site without taking on board every consideration first.

Are there any restrictions not mentioned elsewhere on your website?

 

Only biodegradable confetti allowed.

Bouncy castles and other inflatable equipment that require a generator or petrol fan aren't allowed.

Fireworks aren't allowed but handheld sparklers are fine. 

Can I reserve a date if it's available, even without having looked around the venue first?

Before you can reserve any available date, we'd have had to have met you in person, shown you around the site and made sure your wedding day plans and ideas would work well at our venue.

 

Receiving an invite to a viewing should not be assumed that we are able to host your wedding/reception.

 

Due to only holding a limited number of wedding events each year we can only offer the use of our venue to selected couples, please don't be offended if we feel that your wedding/reception plans would be better suited at another venue that could better accommodate your plans in order to have a wedding celebration perfect for you and your guests.

If you have any other questions, please get in touch!
