We had an amazing wedding day!

We had the most amazing wedding day at South Farm earlier this month! From start to finish the whole team helped make the planning process so much easier and were always quick to respond to any queries with helpful suggestions.

On the day, everything ran so smoothly and seamlessly, and it was so lovely for us to not have to think about the running of the day and be able to focus on enjoying ourselves! Hayley our event manager was brilliant: she was so calm and collected, proactive and organised, and also so kind and helpful to us and our guests.

We also really appreciated the small touches, such as being saved our own plate of canapés during the drinks reception.
Having good food at our wedding was really important to us, and all our guests said the food was brilliant, some said it was the best wedding food they'd ever had!

There’s nothing we would change about our day! Thank you South Farm!

Fantastic, amazing, attentive, magical

I want to thank everyone at South Farm for making our wedding day everything I dreamed of. Nothing was too much trouble, and the attentive staff made the day run smoothly with no problems. I loved every part of the day.
South Farm is a beautiful place absolutely stunning, we have received so many compliments from our guests. Lots of "the best wedding ive been too". We were really lucky to be the first outdoor wedding of this year, I just cant believe how the sun shone for us.
Michelle, our wedding coordinator for the day was absolutely fantastic. It's nice when you get someone to look after you who gels with you and your wedding party. I wish I could do it all again!

Couldn't have asked for more

We had our wedding here and could not have been happier. From the moment we stepped foot on the farm for our viewing, we had that special feeling. Seeing it in person is so different from photos. We actually cried once we left! The staff are second-to-none and go above and beyond. Even after our showaround they gave us a bag of their fresh produce! There are so many personal touches in everything they do!

In the lead up to the big day, they were so communicative and happy to answer any questions. We felt at ease and so well taken care of.

On the day itself our event manager Michelle was a total star and just thought of absolutely EVERYTHING to make the day run smoothly and make sure we didn't have to worry about a single thing. All of the staff are so friendly and accommodating and our guests had the best time. As did we of course!! Everything went off without a hitch thanks to Michelle and the team and we had the wedding of our dreams. Guests loved how gorgeous the venue was (we got the outside ceremony of our dreams!), from the gardens to the barns to the accommodation. It was all just picture-perfect.

Also: THE FOOD. Everyone loved it. Said it was the best wedding food they'd had (we went for the antipasti, followed by the barbecue buffet. Evening food was the noodle bar which was SUCH a hit. Guests went mad for it).

I can't tell you how many special little touches there were to make sure things went well and guests were taken care of. Even things we hadn't thought of, South Farm did, so we never had to worry!

Honestly we couldn't have asked for more. This is a stunning venue with a great team and has everything you could ever dream of! So many people said it was the best wedding they'd been to. And maybe we're bias, but we agree ;)

Thank you, South Farm, for making our wedding day a truly magical and unforgettable experience.

We recently celebrated our wedding on 14th December 2023 at the enchanting South Farm, and we're still basking in the glow of what can only be described as the best and most magical day of our lives. From the very first moment we stepped foot on the grounds, to the last dance of the evening, our experience at South Farm was nothing short of phenomenal.

We would like to extend our gratitude to a few exceptional individuals who played crucial roles in crafting our unforgettable celebration:

Our journey with South Farm began with a warm welcome from Summer, the first friendly face we encountered during our initial visit. After our appointment, we looked at each other in the car, and without uttering a word, we both knew this was the venue of our dreams.

Emily, who conducted our planning meeting, deserves special mention for putting our minds at ease and building excitement for our big day. Her meticulous attention to detail and responsiveness to our queries laid the foundation for the remarkable experience that followed.

A heartfelt thank you to Nikki, our Event Manager, whose exceptional efforts left us in awe. Nikki's genuine care and impeccable timekeeping ensured our day unfolded flawlessly. Her commitment to ensuring every aspect of the celebration ran seamlessly contributed immensely to the overall success of our special day.

Christine and Evie, always so helpful and responsive over email, making our planning process seamless. Every single query we had was handled with ease and efficiency, and their dedication to ensuring our vision came to life did not go unnoticed.

Finally, the incredibly talented chefs deserve accolades for the amazing spread they prepared. We received countless compliments from our guests, with some declaring it the best wedding food they've ever tasted. Considering we've got a few fussy eaters in our family – not a single complaint was heard!

South Farm has etched itself forever in our hearts, thanks to the collective efforts of every staff member involved in making our day perfect. From the warm greetings from the housekeeping team when I first arrived, to the attentive care throughout the day, everyone at South Farm went above and beyond to ensure not only our happiness but also that of our families, friends, and suppliers.

We wholeheartedly recommend South Farm to every engaged couple embarking on their wedding journey. As we fondly reflect on our own celebration, we sincerely hope to return one day to celebrate another milestone with our loved ones!

Our perfect day!

Oh, oh oh, where do I start? South Farm demonstrated nothing short of the utmost passion and professionalism for making our day absolutely magical. All our guests raved about the venue and the quality of the food, and having the whole place exclusively to ourselves made it all the more special. This team are expertly professional, and the venue is immaculate, you'd never think they literally do this every day! The grounds are just stunning and so well maintained, we have some fantastic photos of the day!

The day ran so smoothly from start to finish. Summer our event manager was attentive yet discreet. The correspondence and guidance from the whole team was really helpful and no question was so silly. Michelle, Evie and Summer were so accommodating with our requests and all the last minute changes to the planner and their help really took the stress out of planning the whole day.

We can't thank South Farm enough for making our day absolutely perfect. I just wish we could do it all over again!

Perfect stress free venue

Where do I start!
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

What can we say about South Farm. It is a truly magical place to get married which is only emphasised by the amazing team that they have there.
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

Absolute Perfection

We cannot even begin to describe how perfect our experience at South Farm was. All we have heard from family and friends since was hoe amazing the venue was! From start to finish, the staff at South Farm were warm, welcoming, responsive and extremely helpful. The food was exceptional and 70% is grown on the farm itself! Having the entire venue to ourselves allowed us and our guests to spend the day exploring and enjoying a quiet moment, as well as having gorgeous buildings and surroundings in which to mingle. Every area of South Farm is just beautiful and we count ourselves exceptionally lucky to be among those who have got married at this phenomenal venue.

Nothing short of phenomenal

South Farm

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

I'm super glad we booked South Farm for our wedding. The staff can't do enough to help throughout the whole process from the initial booking, the planning meeting, the food tasting (which is awesome!), in the stressy run up to the event and the actual day itself. We had Emily as our planner on the day and she was fantastic, a lovely calm friendly face checking in and always there making everything run seamlessly supported by all the brilliant staff.
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!

South Farm- out of the world venue for a perfect wedding

We fell in love with South Farm the very first time we visited it and we had the most beautiful, fun, and perfect wedding there. We were extremely lucky with the weather and had the most stunning setting for an outdoors wedding. You will honestly not find a better venue or place to get married than South Farm, we could not recommend it more!
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

The Best Day of Our Lives!

We got married back in March and it’s safe to say that it was an absolute dream. South Farm was the only venue we viewed because we fell in love with it instantly. From that day until our wedding day, the whole team were so helpful and supportive and made the day completely perfect. Can’t recommend them enough. Words cannot truly express how wonderful this venue is! It is a truly special place and we miss it so much already!

Perfect Wedding at South Farm

We recently had our wedding at South Farm in Cambridgeshire. South Farm hosted an incredible day for us, from the start of the planning process through to the morning after the big day, they were professional and friendly, and no idea or request was too much for them.
We would highly recommend South Farm as a wedding venue to any newly engaged couples looking for a unique, relaxed, country wedding.
All of our guests were so happy, and complimentary of the day, accomodation, food and staff.
We can't thank South farm enough, everything ran so smoothly thanks to the front-of-house staff and those behind the scenes.
South Farm will always have a special place in our hearts with unforgettable memories.
