Ceremonies are held in the Garden Wedding Room, with ambient lighting, red carpet treatment, and a stage provided by the on-site team. Lisa and Philip are also happy to organise flowers that match your colour scheme and they use fresh foliage from the farm for an added wild and whimsical aesthetic.

My dream wedding made a reality

We got married at Bridle & Groom in August, and I cannot put into words how incredible Lisa, Phil and their team are. They were so helpful every step of the way, no detail was missed. They helped guide us with decisions we were struggling on, and helped bring our personalities to our wedding to make it unique to us. They made our wedding so fun, unique and perfect for us. She even went above and beyond to help incorporate some incredibly sentimental and emotional belongings in a beautiful way. I will recommend them to anyone and everyone who needs a venue! I still feel the flutters when I think of how perfect our wedding was. Thank you both x

But best not Forget the Chef Helen cooked up a storm for our wedding breakfast and they even made our Cake and Bouquets. We would highly recommend this beautiful venue to anyone wanting a country wedding.
