    I want to do it all again!!

    We had the most magical day at South farm.
    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

    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

    Andrea Gallego and Steve Guest - 1st of July 2019.
