Perfect stress free venue
South Farm is such a magical place. From their ethos of home grown to all year round beauty it's a lovely place to get married.
We can't thank the staff enough for all their help, right from our initial view of the venue through to our big day. Our guests were astounded at how well organised the wedding was which was down to the hard working staff and even manager that made sure every detail ran as smooth as possible.
We loved the exclusiveness and safety of the site. We had the whole venue to ourselves for our big day and our guests could explore at their leisure.
The food is amazing, the tasting menu nigh is not something to miss out on!
Thank You so much to everyone at South Farm, can we do it all again please?!
A truly magical place
From the initial meeting where they still made us feel special, with a wedding going on that day, to all the planning and the day itself. They took the stress away from the day.
The food is amazing with our guests saying it's the best wedding breakfast they've had.
The team at South Farm made our day phenomenal and so special and I could not recommend them enough.
Thank you xx
Nothing short of phenomenal
South farm is nothing short of phenomenal both in location and professionalism.
During our day there was nothing that was too much or too little for them and their organisation skills were flawless. We didn’t need to think about ANYTHING.
Our head organiser for the day, Helen, was wonderful.
Always checking in on myself and, more importantly, my disabled partner.
Helen really made us feel special throughout the day and helped us feel like it was completely ours!
What struck me the most was their dedication to providing flawless service and including us in everything! Even a request made by some of our guests on the day regarding accommodation.
Every other place I can imagine would have accepted the extra room rental without hesitation but Helen sought out me and my partner to confirm it was ok for them to stay!
It was our day and nothing, even them making more money, came before that!
Even writing this review is making me smile at the incredible memories of the day.
South Farm and their amazing staff were flawless on every level and we can’t thank them enough for creating a day we will remember for the rest of our lives.
Outstanding - truly magical day
We had masses of compliments about the venue and the day and we're both still super high from the day.
Thank you South Farm!
I want to do it all again!!
From start to finish they held our hands and supported us with every decision we made.
Our wedding was originally planned for 29th April, however due to covid we had to postpone to 30th September.
South farm kept in constant contact throughout lockdown, reassuring us, and keeping us updated on any new restrictions or options that became available.
They really went the extra mile, treating us like family and feeling all our highs and lows along the planning process.
They made sure to prioritise all existing weddings over accepting new ones, and froze dates so that everyone who had to postpone wouldn't be left disappointed again. The care and compassion that we received cannot be faulted.
Unfortunately, 5 days before our new date (30th September) the government restrictions changed again, leaving us with the impossible option of only having 15 people attend our wedding day.
Thankfully, Emily who works at South farm is an absolute super star and between us we brought my wedding day forward by 5 days so that we could celebrate with 30 (still a massive reduction from our original 150!).
We felt like royalty on the day, nothing was too much to ask, nothing was a hassle, and everything was beautiful, perfect, sentimental and like living a dream.
From our first visit to South farm we knew that this was the venue for us, slightly quirky and extra, but also intimate loving and romantic. And thats exactly what we got on our special day.
Despite covid restrictions, the standards at South farm have not slipped and we can't thank them enough for giving us the perfect venue for our perfect day x
South Farm- out of the world venue for a perfect wedding
The venue is a magic, special and completely unique, you have to visit to completely understand it. We have had so many compliments from all our guests on how much they loved the venue, the food and they had such a great time!
The food is really exquisite, organic and local, and South Farm is very flexible to adapt to what you really want. The food, just like the service, couldn't be better. We had some challenges with some guests´s diet requirements and as Spanish I wanted to have some Spanish food too. South Farm were more than happy to help us and follow some of the recipes I provided. My family complimented this, and were surprised it was really good!
The staff is warm, friendly and they put a great amount of effort and thought into everything, means we didn't feel at all stressed! On the day Helga, our events manager, was more than amazing. She flitted about in the background and was always one step ahead of us. Thank you for being super fantastic! Thanks as well to Emily and Alexandra for making the organisation really easy and for coordinating all since day one and reply all our questions so efficiently.
We absolutely loved having our big day at South Farm and couldn't be happier looking back on it. I wish we could do it all over again. Many thanks to South Farm for a dream wedding

Stress-free wedding day!
What a blast we had at South Farm!
Perfect wedding venue
An incredible day!
The staff at the venue are brilliant. They look after you so well, going above and beyond all expectations and we can’t thank them enough for giving us such a fantastic day.
All in all we can’t recommend this venue highly enough, 10/10, 5*, perfect!
The best day ever!
The planning team are excellent, they make the whole process completely stress free and go out of their way to help you make your special day exactly what you want. There are so many well thought out small personal touches which just sets them apart from any other venue.
The menu choices are vast and delicious, we had great fun at the menu tasting event we were invited to which gives you a real taste of what your event could be.
The day was seamless, our lovely event planner Evie was on hand at all times and the staff were all really lovely and accomodating. The food on the day was exceptional, so many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding food they had ever had.
The onsite accomodation is really lovely, only great comments from our guests.
We used a number of South Farms recommended suppliers who were also excellent.
We really can't thank South Farm enough and recommended them to any couple looking for somewhere to have their special day!
Thank you South Farm
