The venue is amazing
Venue Service

By Kylie McMenemy, on 07 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Dec 2017

We got married at South Farm in December 2017 and we absolutely loved it. The venue is amazing, the food was superb, the staff are fantastic and our day was out of this world. South Farm and its staff really do value all of their customers, they go into so much detail, to ensure that your day goes as smoothly as possible. All of the staff are always so helpful and friendly, which really does put you at ease. We would definitely recommend South Farm for anyone who is looking for a wedding venue with a difference. Thanks to Emily, Summer and everyone at South Farm for making our day so special.

Everything we hoped for

Stunningly Beautiful, Quirky and Unique!
Venue Service

By Sam Eagles, on 05 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Nov 2017

My new wife & I cannot thank South Farm and all of its staff enough for everything they have done for our wedding. The support and attention from all the team is second to none and we couldn’t have asked for a more friendly and patient service. The Farmhouse, Barn and the surrounding ground is stunning beautiful and required very little decoration, which was ideal for us as we wanted a rustic style wedding, to which South Farm fitted the bill perfectly. The food produced by the kitchen team was beautiful and went down like a storm with all of our guests, who continue to compliment and comment about it as well as the venue, to us nearly a week after we tied the knot. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is after a stunningly beautiful wedding, whilst being quirky and unique at the same time.

Certainly Special!

By Charlotte & Sam, on 04 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Nov 2017

The day was certainly special, if not more so! Everything ran like clockwork, and we wanted to say a special thanks to Helga and the team that helped out on the day for ensuring it stayed that way. Our guests absolutely loved the day too and we’re still getting messages from them saying how beautiful and perfect South Farm was for our wedding.

Wonderful wedding venue
Venue Service

By Jody Hall, on 04 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Nov 2017

Wonderful wedding venue that catered brilliantly for me as a coeliac. Starter for all was a cheese torte and they made a gluten free one for me, main was a hog roast and all sides were gluten free. Evening buffet was all clearly labelled and there were 3 gluten free hot choices. It was so nice to eat the same as everyone else! Staff were so attentive and the atmosphere was magical. Thanks for a great night!

We cannot thank you all enough for making our day so special and amazing! From start to finish everything was seamless, even when I was running late! J The food was above and beyond what we could have imagined, everyone still talks about it when we seem them. So, thank you again for everything each and every one of you did on our wedding day.

Cannot recommend enough!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Leggett, on 24 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2017

We got married 10th November at this most amazingly beautiful venue! We cannot recommend it enough! Each step of the planning with South Farm was made stress free and nothing was ever too much. All of the staff went above and beyond of what we could have ever expected and made our day the most perfect. One member of staff in particular, Summer (our wedding planner), we would like to say a big big thank you to you! You made our day seamless and so so special! We loved every minute of it and so did our guests! You were there every step of the way which was lovely to know that you weren’t too far away. Also a big thank you to the rest of the staff and chefs, the food was amazing which I think showed as most people went up for seconds! We had Indian buffet with three amazing desserts which everyone struggled to choose from! And to the staff for being on hand and even taking leaves out of my dress that I had managed to sweep up throughout my travels. We also hired Chris Jennings (The Master or Ceremonies) to be part of our day and we cannot recommend him highly enough! He was on hand from when we arrived to the first dance. We are so happy that we chose to have our special day at South Farm because you all made it perfect. Truly from the bottom of our hearts we cannot thank you all enough!
