Bigstrup Farm is a rustic wedding venue located in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire. Ideal for couples who wish to say 'I do' in an intimate setting, this countryside gem is home to a vintage barn and a charming courtyard garden. You and your significant other are invited to indulge in your dream wedding at this rural getaway.

Venue: Includes access to our lovely 400-year-old tythe barn with a stage area, courtyard garden with a bar, meadow barn and surrounding fields. Previous weddings we have hosted have had drinks and canapes in the courtyard garden before moving into the meadow barn for the wedding breakfast (with a marquee inner lining which gives it the same atmosphere/feel as a marquee) and then having music and dancing in the tythe barn. We're more than happy to work with you on how best to use our space to fit your dream day.

Capacity: The meadow barn comfortably fits 140 guests for a sit-down meal.

Timings: Guests can arrive at the venue from 11 am on the day of your wedding. We ask that all music be stopped by 11 pm and guests leave by midnight.

Bar: We have a fully stocked pay bar, which will be available for service from 12 pm to 11 pm. Corkage will be charged if you wish to bring any of your own drinks.

Catering and suppliers: We're happy to recommend some of the caterers and suppliers who have served at weddings here in the past, but we have no restrictions on who you can use. We have an outbuilding available for caterers to use.

Accommodation: We don't have any on-site accommodation, but there are plenty of hotels and Airbnbs nearby. We'd be happy to share a list of recommendations.

Ceremonies: While we don't have a wedding license, we've had some lovely celebrant-led ceremonies both inside and outside at the farm. We'd be delighted to talk you through the options for this and recommend celebrants.

Garden games: We have some fantastic games that your guests can enjoy in our garden, including Aunt Sally, Corn Hole and Jenga.

Before the event: We're serious about providing a unique setting for a wedding that you can truly make your own. We allow you access to the venue the day before your wedding, so you can do just that.

The next day: We offer the option to book the venue the next day from 12 pm to 6 pm at a discounted rate. This gives you the perfect opportunity to reminisce with your guests on the day before and say goodbye before your honeymoon.

Prices: Our venue hire is a fixed fee for the wedding day from 11 am - 12 pm. This includes access to the venue a day prior to the event, a fully stocked pay bar with bar staff, a fully furnished meadow barn with tables and chairs for the wedding breakfast, and garden games. We're happy to help you with recommendations for caterers/entertainment you would like on the day.

Our venue hire for the day after your wedding covers from 12 pm - 6 pm. This includes access to the venue and a fully stocked pay bar with bar staff.

Excellent & Professional Venue

After attending a wedding at Bigstrup Farm 2 years ago we couldn't think of a better venue for our own special day.
The setting is perfect and as for the high quality of service we received from Will, it was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble.
The setting is beautiful and relaxed and all our guests have commented how excellent everything was
Will, you and your team are so professional and I can't praise you or thank you enough.
Our day was perfect THANAK YOU !!

Rob & Jess’s wedding 24/6/23

Where to start?! Firstly, what a venue, secondly we cannot fault the service we received from Will. We fell in love with the venue from the moment we went down the driveway and knew it was the venue we dreamed of. It felt like home. Will was faultless, nothing was ever an issue and he answered all our questions in timely manor, it felt like working with a friend and when we were stressed, he really put us at ease and made us feel very under control! We will never be able to thank Will enough for his assistance and also giving us the farm to celebrate the best, and most memorable day of our lives. On the day, the bar staff were impeccable. They were friendly, professional and organised. Faultless in fact.
Our guests and suppliers were in awe of the venue, and credited Will and the staff for their hospitality. We would recommend celebrating anyone’s wedding day at Bigstrup Farm. We wish we would do it all over again.
Will and Bigstrup Farm, you’ll always be special to us and I’m sure you will make everyone else’s wedding day be a dream! Thanks again, Jess & Rob xxx

The perfect venue for an incredible day

Will and the team could not have provided a better service throughout all the planning and on our wedding day. The venue is truly beautiful and fitted the relaxed feel we were looking for. The separate areas for dancing, chatting and eating around a courtyard meant no waiting around for rooms to be swapped and allowed our guests to relax along with us but still feel connected, something that is rare in a wedding venue. It is also very family-friendly with lots to entertain the little ones - a pirate ship climbing frame, actual pigs and a play area. We have had so many comments from our guests telling us just how much they loved Bigstrup Farm and we could not agree more.

The team on the day were extremely friendly and professional and helped wherever required to make our day extra special. Will is exceptionally personable and made us both feel extremely relaxed and confident right from our first meeting and it was a pleasure to work with him and the whole Bigstrup team. His communication in the lead up was incredible, answering literally all our questions in record time, photos, recommendations and all. It made the whole process so much easier. He was also open to the few suggestions we had to allow us to make our day our own, including adding some local gin to the bar menu.

Overall, Bigstrup was instrumental in making our day all we could have dreamed of. If you are looking for a beautiful, friendly, relaxed, family-orientated wedding - look no further. We could not recommend highly enough.

Perfect Wedding Venue

We both fell in love with Bigstrup as soon as we saw it. This beautiful fam was the perfect setting for our wedding reception. During the run up Will was quick to respond to any queries. On the day nothing was too much trouble for the team, staff were all very attentive & helpful and the bar was well stocked! Kids loved the play room, freedom to run around and of course the Pigs! Would highly recommend!!

The perfect countryside wedding

Bigstrup Farm was just the perfect venue for our wedding and we had the best day we could have asked for. We loved the rustic farm setting - the tythe barn was incredible for dancing in the evening and ended up being the perfect wet weather option for our drinks reception when the weather decided to take a turn for the worse! The courtyard garden created such a lovely intimate atmosphere and having the farm animals around was great fun - they certainly provided some extra unexpected entertainment for our guests!

The managers of the venue went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was extra special and helped make me feel at ease on the big day. Communication was excellent and they were always on hand to help with any of our questions and to ensure the set up went smoothly. Would highly recommend the venue to others.

Mrs Jo Greaves

As mother of the groom I wasn't involved with all the financial details. However the venue is idyllic, kept to a very high standard. All the guests were blown away by the beauty of the place. Will was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. The tythe barn is a perfect setting for a rustic, romantic wedding venue. I cannot recommend Bigstrup farm highly enough. Thank you Will.

Perfect countryside venue!

Bigstrup is a perfect countryside venue if you're looking for a low-key venue, where you can add lots of personal touches! We can't thank Will enough for all of his help in the lead up to our wedding weekend and the weekend itself. Will and the team are so lovely and did everything they could to make the day run smoothly.

So may of our guests commented on how beautiful the farm is and how relaxed it was. It was everything we ever imagined and more!

We first contacted Bigstrup 4 months before our planned wedding date, due to being let down by our original venue. We immediately fell in love with the farm. Luckily our original date was available and so we began the planning process with Will. Right from the outset, we received a very professional, understanding and helpful service. Will helped us plan and deliver our perfect day. Nothing was too much to ask, even last minute additions or help needed on the day.

In terms of the venue itself, you genuinely couldn't hope to find a more beautiful location. There are several distinct areas for your guests to enjoy (not to mention photo opportunities!), each unique and wonderful in their own right. We made use of the garden for our ceremony, which worked perfectly for the theme and atmosphere we were going for. The courtyard and bar area are just brilliant - our guests loved it and Susanna the pig was an instant hit with the children that attended. The tythe barn is simply stunning and is perfect for a band or DJ. We chose the latter and found it the perfect space just off the courtyard to dance the night away. Finally, we used the marquee lined second barn for our wedding breakfast. This felt like the perfect intimate setting to enjoy our chosen caterers and of course the speeches etc.

We genuinely can't say enough about Bigstrup. The lovely people, flexibility, inherent atmosphere and the stunning venue itself all made our wedding exactly what we wanted - laid back and fun. It truly exceeded our expectations and we suspect Bigstrup will be booked up years in advance soon - it's the perfect wedding venue with the right people on hand to support you and your guests. Thanks again Will + team!

Absolutely fantastic - highly recommend!

Highly recommend Bigstrup Farm as a wedding venue. The venue is absolutely stunning and the backdrop of the Buckinghamshire countryside is very picturesque.

The variety of event spaces make it the perfect spot to hold a wedding. Many of our guests commented on the beauty and character of the venue, including the old Tythe Barn which is fab for dancing, and the beautiful courtyard and gardens for the drinks reception. The grounds are stunning and provide a wonderful backdrop for photographs, particularly at sunset!

Will and the events team were fantastic to work with. They are highly professional, very accommodating and friendly, and go above and beyond to ensure your wedding day goes exactly as hoped.

Many of our guests shared that they wished that they could have held their wedding at Bigstrup Farm! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful, relaxed and spacious wedding venue. Thank you Will for making our day one that we won't forget! Victoria x

Absolutely Stunning Wedding Venue

We have just had our wedding at Bigstrup and we are all still buzzing from such a magical day...

The attention to detail with the stunning surroundings and court yard garden really blow us away and all our guests!

The most amazing back drops for natural photos too!

The staff working were fantastic and an extra thank you to Will for going above and beyond to make our day perfect!

What we loved most was we were able to tailor make our wedding to make it unique to us without spending a fortune.
Highly recommend!
Thanks again for everything
