Blessings

Many couples have held a blessing here within the grounds, in the presence of all their reception guests and led by a humanist celebrant. Popular sites are in the orchard or under the two great oak trees - or wherever the couple feels suits them. This is very personal to each couple and really sets a romantic tone to the wedding celebrations! You also have the option to hold a ceremony at one of the beautiful local churches.

    Nothing short of superb in every element!

    I recently got married at Ridge Farm and the whole team were nothing short of superb! Helpful, friendly, welcoming and highly professional. Huge mention to Rich and his bar team who were just brilliant and Ellie in all the preparation and the delivery. The venue is utterly spectacular and supports a whole variety of different wedding options. They were that good that my brother in law immediately booked the venue for his own reception. I could not recommend Ridge Farm enough!

    The dream venue

    The perfect venue. A beautiful setting to bring all of our loved ones together, with the family in farmhouse, friends in the bell tents and us in the bridal cottage. We made the most of Ridge Farm, getting married in the living room on the Friday, having the wedding on the Saturday and a pool party on the Sunday. Ellie and the team were a dream and helped make everything run smoothly and perfectly.

    A perfect venue with lovely staff made a perfect d

    We decided to have a family wedding on the Saturday and friends coming for a hog-roast, swimming, tennis and garden games on the Sunday.
    Ridge Farm - what a perfect place!!!!
    Ellie, her family and the staff are so lovely and easy to work with. They keep the place pristine. It is full of character and history - having been a recording studio in former years and still having gold records on the wall!
    The bridal suite is in the granary and is so very romantic - it even has a balcony overlooking the pond!
    We could go on and on - but it can all be summed up with the statement that by choosing Ridge we had a perfect weekend wedding spread over 2 days. Thank you Ellie and team :-)
