The perfect lakeside venue

We are so unbelievably pleased we chose The Lakeside at Wild Berry Farm for our wedding venue. The venue is just perfect. We will never forgot the sunset over the lake, the festoon lights round the field, the jetty, the beautiful marquee and everything in between. You would be our choice every time.

It's hard to put into words just how grateful we are for Hannah and the team and what you all did to make our wedding quite literally the best day of our lives. Hannah is everything and more; she is the wedding coordinator of dreams. Thank you for saying 'yes!' to pretty much everything we wanted. You really did go above and beyond to make the day look unique to us. Thank you for your endless patience every time we changed our minds about food, table plans and guest lists.

We will miss the weekend WhatsApp messages helping us choose wines and Mr and Mrs cocktail recipes and the evening planning meetings at the Sun (our new favourite pub and highly recommended wedding caterer - Pete at the Sun, you deserve a 5 star review of your own!). Ultimately, thank you for making planning our wedding a genuinely enjoyable experience, Hannah and everyone at the venue.

Organised, helpful, efficient, hard working, thoughtful team, all with a sense of humour too. Couldn’t recommend this venue & team highly enough.

Absolutely beautiful venue. Ideal for an outside summer wedding, it fit our vision for what we wanted on the day perfectly. The team were fantastic from the initial communication and questions, support throughout the planning process (Hannah is so knowledgeable) and then faultless on the day itself including set up and take down. What you get is incredible value for money and they burden some of the stress of wedding planning so it became an enjoyable process. We had a magical day, all our guests enjoyed themselves and we would do it all again if we could. Some of services that really stood out for us were the level of communication, the check ins to make sure we had considered everything (and there were lots of details that we just hadn't thought about), the support with set up and the fact that Hannah will liaise directly with the suppliers on your behalf and the actual wedding package itself. The wedding package on paper does not do it justice - the views and the space speaks for itself but at nighttime it's taken to a whole other level which was magical. And on a side note I've never come across such incredible toilets! Thank you for a fantadtic day!

A wonderful day

We had our wedding day at The Lakeside in August 2021 and I honestly wish we could do it all over again. The venue hadn’t actually opened for weddings yet but the team took everything in their stride when we asked if we could hold our wedding with them with only 6 weeks to plan it!

Nothing was too much to ask for and the team couldn’t do enough to make the day perfect for us. They go above and beyond and make the whole experience really personal with special little touches. The whole day did exceed all expectations and everything came together perfectly! It really was the best day and would not have been possible without all of there hard work.

Ourselves and all of our guests had a wonderful time and we couldn’t praise the venue enough. We live locally and it will always be a special place to us.

Thank you so much again!

Even though the dancing’s done, we’re still raving about the Lakeside at Wildberry Farm

We were very fortunate to know of the Lakeside at Wildberry Farm in its early days, with family living in close proximity to the venue. However what we could never have imagined is how stunningly beautiful the venue could look, how wonderful everyone involved with the Lakeside are and how determined everyone is to deliver the best wedding day you could imagine.

In terms of planning and coordinating the day, JJ and Laura are open to pretty much any idea you can put to them and wholly accommodative where they can be. The venue comes with a wedding coordinator, Hannah from Field and Festoons, who is absolutely brilliant in bringing your ideas out and building them into a wedding day even better than you could have imagined. We could not have done any of this without her and will forever be grateful for her creativity, patience and insight.

The Lakeside is also linked with the Sun Inn at Felmersham, who provide the catering services including all the food and bar supplies. We have got to know the people at the Sun really well and their food is simply outstanding. Our guests waxed lyrical for weeks after our wedding day about how good the food was, while the bar service was flawless. I also had the pleasure of staying at the Sun the night before our wedding with my groomsmen. Once again, we couldn’t have received better care by the attentive staff, while the accommodation itself is really high class and luxurious, with all amenities and furnishings of the highest standard.

Another preferred supplier is tent provider FM Tents - whose beautiful structures and furniture formed the centre piece for the aesthetic of our day. They were also largely un-phased when we told them we were looking to create a glamping village, in which around 50 of our guests stayed overnight (including us of course!)

We couldn’t have wished for a better wedding day or a better venue. The setting and scenery itself creates a stunning setting for an outdoor wedding, while it is all the people connected with the Lakeside at Wildberry Farm that really makes for a wonderful experience and one that we will never forget.
