Stanford Farm

Stanford Farm offers quite a unique opportunity to really personalise your wedding experience. We didn’t want to go somewhere where we felt like we were just on a conveyor belt and didn’t have time to really enjoy the experience with our guests - Stanford Farm gave us the ability to extend the celebration across an entire weekend. It is a bit more effort to manage but Cindy, Keith and the team were there to offer their support throughout and it was absolutely worth it. We also loved the range of Accomodation on-site and having everyone there all day was brilliant. The only thing that didn’t play ball for us was the weather but that just made it even more memorable…and the team pulled out all the stops to ensure even biblical rain didn’t spoil our day!

Absolutely perfect.

We never in a million years wanted a 'traditional wedding' but Stanford Farm gave us the opportunity to have an 'us' wedding.

- 3 solid days of family, friends, party, music and chill!
Im still in disbelief of how amazing our 'festival wedding' really was.
One thing that really made this venue stand out for us, was the people.
Genuine vibes from start to finish made us feel at ease in a completely new venture - we had never planned a wedding before & could feel that we were completely out of our depths.

We visited many venues and the magnitude of it all, the hidden charges and the fact we didn't quite understand the lingo - was starting to make us feel quite vulnerable, but as soon as we set foot onto the farm every thing just seemed to fit into place.
The staff are incredible.
Everything was fairly priced, upfront, open & clear to understand - which really made such a huge difference in the planning process!
They really took the time to listen to our questions, nothing was too daft & they took the time to make sure we were happy with our choices.
Although ours was a DIY wedding, staff are also on hand during the day and worked so hard to make sure everything went to plan, honestly couldn't of asked for anything more.
The whole experience was just so chilled, organised and full of love (and jagermeister)
Stanford farm will always have a huge place in our hearts.
Until next time ...

Fabulous wedding venue for all budgets

I can't praise Stanford farm enough. They were so helpful and supportive and made our wedding seem like a breeze. Nothing was too much trouble. The weather wasn't great but they made sure it didn't affect our day and we will remember it forever.

Perfection

Stanford farm is the perfect place to get married. Cindy and her team are easy going, helpful and genuine people. The location is stunning and a blank canvas to do as you please with. Our wedding was the best weekend of our lives and all of our guests commented on the location. Having accommodation on sight was a huge plus for us and our guests. We hold Stanford farm close to our hearts and always will. Highly recommended.

Mrs&Mrs Bailey

We got married 25.06.2022, Stanford was the first venue we viewed and we booked the same day! Cindy was so welcoming and answered any and all questions we had, the farm is charming, it feels like it is loved! There are so many added extras that come with this venue it’s like no other! We were worried about doing it DIY but Stanford gave us a detailed list of supplier, many of which we used! I was emailing Cindy all the time with copious amounts of questions and she never failed to respond. We had the farm Friday-Sunday and from the minute we got there until the time we left there was always someone looking after us and on hand all the way, from managing the day to hurrying me out the room to see the registrar😂 no stone was left unturned. The venue and staff are second to none. ALL of our guests complimented the venue and staff with two of our friends booking the venue on the Sunday after our wedding. I couldn’t recommend this venue enough, it is BEAUTIFUL, in fact beautiful isn't the word, it’s breath taking. Gemma and I would like to thank Cindy and all of her amazing team for making our day the best one of our lives. Your care and attention is unmatched, we can’t wait to come back next year hopefully with a baby Bailey.X

Unbelievable surroundings

We don't know where to begin, Cindy and the whole team at Stanford Farm truly gave us a wedding we will never forget. Their warmth and hospitality made us feel so at home and the beautiful surroundings were ours to dress how we liked (not that it's needed!). You honestly get a bespoke wedding at Stanford and I would urge anyone considering this venue to go and take a look. The photos don't do it justice. You feel how special it is as soon as you arrive. Thankyou Cindy , Gill and the whole team for giving us something we could have never hoped for, and bringing our whole family together. We won't be able to keep away , so see you again soon!! Much Love Mr & Mrs Logan ❤️

Truly Amazing

I can't explain just how amazing the wedding was at the farm! From the Cow Shed, to the camping and the cocktail caravan! The whole experience was more than we ever hoped for. Cindy and the team were there to sort everything on the day (even doing up the buttons on our wedding dresses; thanks Kathy ;)
The day was perfect and Sarah & I just wish we could do it all again!

Our Dream Wedding Came True! 🤵‍♀️👰‍♀️❤️🏳️‍🌈

Our dreams came true when we found this hidden gem of a venue! Cindy, the venue owner, helped us from start to finish and every question we asked was answered, even the odd ones! (Do you have an iron?) The venue itself is perfect for festival style weddings. So many photo opportunities from the stables, to the lakeside, to the double decker bus #dameshirleybusey
The venue comes as a blank canvas in which you can make your own dream wedding and design it how you wish. The prop stop is perfect too and helps massively if you’ve forgotten something! Cindy and her team were fantastic and so helpful and made our day run smoothly and perfect. 100% would recommend to anyone! And great for LGBTQ+ weddings! Thank you so so much Cindy and Team! ❤️ From Tash and Laura

Mr and Mrs Mitchell

We have recently had our big day here and I couldn't recommend the venue enough! It was everything I dreamt of and more.
Stanford Farm is a completely blank conversion and you can make it to exactly how you want it, whether you do it all yourself (like i did) or you can hire people to make it how you wish.
Cindy has been amazing, especially under the circumstances and she went above and beyond to ensure we could still have our special day, even after having to postpone. On the day there were a few little hiccups and Cindy was straight on it to sort it out!
Highly recommend Cindy and Stanford Farm

Perfect wedding venue!

Stanford farm was the only place we would have wanted to get married. The flexibility allowed us to create our perfect three day event. We were on site from Thursday for a Saturday wedding and so we felt completely relaxed in the venue. The focus on sharing and re-using meant that our wedding was made more special by what was left behind and more eco-friendly. The team are very responsive and Keith ensured our wedding ran 100% to plan on the day. The place is truly beautiful inside and out.
We cannot thank the Stanford team enough. It was honestly the best day of our lives and we are so grateful to everyone who made it happen.

Wedding of our dreams!

We had the wedding of our dreams at Stanford. Cindy was always on hand to answer any queries and also let us visit last minute with suppliers etc. She was away for our wedding weekend but Keith was incredible. Nothing was too much trouble he was kind, complimentary and so helpful in the running of our day - always checking in with us and ensuring everything ran smoothly. The venue itself was just perfect. The plants and gardens are kept so beautiful. The Cow Shed just got prettier every time we saw it. The fairy lights are just stunning. The farmhouse is great and spacious, beds are super comfy. All staff are so friendly and hardworking. We just adored it and will recommend it to everyone for the rest of time. You guys are just incredible and you do such a wonderful job. We felt like we were the only wedding to have ever been there - the attention to detail from you all and the dedication to us as a couple for the entire weekend just made us feel so special and we honestly had the wedding of our dreams. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts 💕 - Mrs&Mrs Tate 22.07.23 xx

Wedding Weekend

We got married at Stanford Farm on Saturday 3rd June 2023 and it was a perfect venue for us. We got the venue on the Friday morning and kept it until the Sunday evening, with most of our guests around 60-70 people staying on site (with no issues with shower facilities etc.). There is room for around 30-40 people to stay in the farmhouse and various hobbit huts and plenty of space for campers / campervans. The staff from the venue were incredibly helpful the whole way though, starting with Cindy who was in touch with information the whole way through the process. This was handed over to Keith closer to the time who answered all our last minute questions and was very helpful all throughout the weekend, ensuring all the little things were taken care of before we had even thought of them. The venue gave us complete flexibility to provide our own caterers and we used all our own food on the Friday and Sunday which helped us keep the costs down (we even sorted our own canapes and dessert on the day as well). There is brilliant outside space at the venue (we were lucky with the weather and managed to have an outside ceremony). We would highly recommend and wouldn’t have chosen anywhere else. Andy & Sophie.

Beautiful venue - best day ever

No words can describe how amazing our time at Stanford Farm was. From the start Cindy and her team were excellent and answered our countless emails in the run up to our big day. We had the best three days and no task was too big or too small for Keith which we are extremely grateful for! Stanford Farm is the perfect venue with a great mix of outdoor and indoor space. Getting married by the lake was magical and the photos do not do it justice. It is a beautiful location that we will always remember. If you want a bespoke wedding to make your own then Stanford Farm is the ideal place. All the staff are friendly and really help to make your day special. We can’t wait to visit again soon.
