Russ and I wanted to thank you all so very much for letting us use your perfect venue. Our day was so lovely – everything we hoped for. You have such attention to detail. All of your staff are excellent. Thank you Emily for looking after us so well – you made it so easy for us. You were wonderful – professional, but always friendly and kind. Especially when I presented you with 4 very, very last-minute drop outs!!! With love to you all and Emily,

You have an amazing team

Hi South Farm, We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at South Farm for making Sarah and Adam’s wedding day such an incredible celebration. Sarah and Adam knew they wanted their wedding to be at your venue on their visit day. However, they decided look at one other venue just in case. Don’t know why they did that! Sarah was not interested in the other place at all. Her Dad commented to her as we left the other venue, “South Farm is just you Sarah. It’s higgledy piggledy” by which he meant it was quirky! So glad we then went ahead and booked you! The venue looked stunning so many guests commented on this. The food was exceptional especially the scotch eggs which we hear are now on the menu. It’s so important to feed your guests well and you did that for us. Sarah and Adam and her sibling’s favourite moment was visiting the pigs. It made their day especially when the bride got pig poo all over her hand. Please pass on our sincerest gratitude to all your staff. You have an amazing team! Everyone I have spoken to at South Farm did their best to accommodate our requests and sorted everything calmly, efficiently and swiftly. I would especially like to say a big thank you to Alli the wedding planner. She made the day absolutely perfect!

The staff were amazing

If you’re thinking of getting married don’t look anywhere else just go ahead and book South Farm. Our daughter was married there on Saturday 27 October 2018. The venue is stunning! All our guests were blown away by how pretty it looked and the fantastic food! The staff were amazing, especially Alli the Event Manager. She looked after us all and went beyond our expectations! We had the perfect day at the perfect venue. Sarah and Adam’s love just shone through. They knew South Farm was their venue the first time they saw it. I didn’t want to leave the morning after the wedding just wish I could live there!! ??

Thank you

Hi Becky! I hope you are well :) Now that we are fully back at work & our honeymoon is a distant memory... I just want to say a huge thank you for essentially creating our wedding day! You ran the day so smoothly & was such a calming presence to have nearby! Thank you so much for sorting of the little things, like getting my Dad his buttonhole!! & I'm sure many other things that I wasn't even aware of! You were complimented so highly by my friends and family; the resounding comment from the day was how smoothly everything ran, which I know is down to you and your team, so thank you a million times. You've given us the best memory of such a great day. Thank you so much for being apart & helping make our wedding day so very very very special & something we will never forget. Lots of love,

Thank you again

I would like to say a personal thank you to Summer who did such a great job looking after all of us and making sure we were all where we should be! Which at times I’m sure was difficult. Summer handled everyone with patience, calm and professionalism even when cornered by inebriated bridesmaids! Thank you again for making Emma and Pete’s day one to remember. Kind regards

We had an incredible wedding day

Hi Summer, We had an incredible wedding day, thank you so much to everyone at South Farm for making the day so perfect. All our guests commented on how lovely South Farm is, and the staff were fantastic both in the lead up and on our wedding day. It really was the perfect venue with the perfect setting for our day, and even the weather co-operated! Everyone says something will go wrong on the day but we were so lucky nothing did and it’s all because of how great the team are. The day ran so smoothly and it was so nice and relaxed, everything we dreamed of, so please pass on our massive thanks to all of the team for everything they did for us! Thanks you again for providing us with such an amazing wedding day we shall never forget. Kind regards,

So sorry for the delay in sending this email; we would just like to thank the whole South Farm team for giving us the most amazing Wedding day! Everything from start to finish went so perfectly, Summer was so lovely and made everything run so smoothly, everyone commented on the amazing organisation. Even during the planning process we felt a priority with all our needs and questions, we know how many weddings you must be planning daily yet we still felt important! The food was amazing and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it, we have never had wedding food like it! We didn’t want the day to end, everything was so beautiful and went more perfect then we had hoped and imagined, we wish we could do it all again! Thank you for making our wedding day so special and unforgettable! Best wishes

We could not have asked for a better venue
Venue Service

By Sofia Paz Wright, on 01 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2018

My husband and I got married at South farm on July 1st this year and we couldn't have asked for a better venue! The day went without flaw from start to finish and it was the best day of our lives! The staff (especially Becky) are incredible and we are still receiving compliments from our guests about the day. We couldn't have made a better choice in picking South farm and would highly recommend it to anybody considering booking their wedding there!

So many thank yous
Venue Service

By Jackie & Graham, on 07 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Dec 2017

It is difficult to know where to start as we have so many thank you's. From the moment we came for our first visit back in the summer with you, we knew that South Farm was the perfect place for us. We had an amazing day, funny moments during the ceremony when the peacocks made themselves heard, delicious food, it stayed dry and we had a lot of fun. Our families and friends have been sending us messages all week, some saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We are so happy and haven't stopped smiling. Please can you pass on our thanks to Emily and the team that were there on the day, they did a wonderful job, the food was fantastic and we were so well looked after by everyone.

Huge Thank You
Venue Service

By Emma & Colin Marks, on 04 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2017

Colin and I would like to say a huge thank you for all your hard work during our wedding. You made everything so perfect and our day was absolutely magical. Please thank the catering team for us, the food was delicious and many of our guests were so complimentary about the menu and quality of service. We couldn't have been more delighted with the professionalism of South Farm and with how beautiful everything was. South Farm's resident DJ Gary was lovely too! On behalf of my husband and I please accept our most heartfelt and sincerest thanks and appreciation.
