    Incredible!!!

    The Willow Marsh farm is the most beautiful venue. We fell in love with it immediately and Simon and Sarah were so incredibly helpful at every step of our wedding planning , including through our COVID postponent.
    The venue and the parlour are finished to perfection and our weekend was the most perfect celebration of love that we could have imagined. All our guests commented on how spectacular the venue is and what a fabulous day it was.
    The whole Willow Marsh team worked so hard for the entire day to make it perfect for us. They went above and beyond and are a genuinely wonderful team of friends and family, which made it all the more special. We would wholeheartedly encourage anyone to book the Willow Marsh Farm for their special occasion. Thank you for making our wedding so perfect!!

    2nd September 2021

    The first time we went to view Willow Marsh Farm we knew this was the venue for us. Our wedding date was delayed three times and Simon couldn't have done any more to make the process of moving dates any easier. We finally got married on 2nd September 2021, and we honestly couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. This was all down to the hard work of Simon, Sarah & the rest of the team. They went the extra mile to make our day so special. The venue itself including the onsite accommodation, is finished to the highest standard with no expense spared. All our guests commented on how amazing the venue was, and how great the Willow Marsh Farm team was. We would recommend this to anyone who asked.

    Stunning Venue!

    Si and Sarah catered to all of our needs and more with their incredible venue. The setting was so incredible and there truly isn't another venue like this in Nottinghamshire. Can't thank them enough for everything and I would recommend this place to anyone!

    Magical and stress free

    Simon and family at The Willow Marsh Farm were beyond fabulous!! Helpful and friendly are just two of the hundred words i can use to describe how incredible these guys are!! From the minute we met Simon we knew we wanted to get married at The Willow Marsh, nothing was ever too much trouble for them, forever asking if there was anything that needed to be done to help out or giving advice from past experience in what would work better. They really excel in all the lovely tiny details that you don’t necessarily think of yourself but with their help just makes your wedding that extra bit special. And thats before i mention how stunning the venue is!! Such a natural beauty!! Ever millimetre of that place is just thought about and looks beautiful, amazing grounds, the beautiful rustic barn and the new and absolutely breathtaking bridal parlour, every minute spent at the willow marsh with Simon and his family was just smooth, stress free and truly truly immensely stunning!! There are not enough words to describe how i feel!! Just an all round absolute dream!!

    Can we do it again?!

    We always had a vision of what we wanted our wedding day to look like - and Willow Marsh Farm exceeded all of our expectations! From the moment we walked in we knew this was the venue for us, not wanting to get too excited about venue number 1 though we did due-diligence and visited other options - but none lived up to the grandeur, stylish, welcoming feeling we got from Willow Marsh and it's owner Simon.

    The barn was already stunning, but over the lockdown period Simon put so much love and effort into making it even more beautiful. The grounds, the parlour, the fireplace and the venue as a whole make for some stunning photos (not forgetting the giant roll top bath!) and our guests all had an amazing time.

    Sarah and Simon are brilliant hosts, listening to all our ideas along the way and always there to help. We wanted a venue where we didn't feel rushed, we wanted to feel part of the setup. We loved the fact you get full weekend hire at Willow Marsh which enabled us to put personal touches into our wedding by setting it up ourselves the day before.

    If I could get married every year I would choose to do so at Willow Marsh! Thank you so much for making our special day so stunning and all about us. x x

    The PERFECT wedding venue!

    We’ve found it really hard to put into words how unbelievable our experience has been with everyone at The Willow Marsh Farm. We got in touch with Simon in early 2020 and he welcomed us to The Willow Marsh Farm with open arms – it was the first and only venue we looked at and we were blown away as soon as we arrived so booked our provisional date there and then!

    Fast forward to 2021 and our big day was fast approaching. Simon couldn’t have possibly done more for us – he was always there on email and phone and was right there when we had a few supplier glitches. His calmness and advice was nothing short of brilliant.

    Our wedding day was absolutely incredible and Simon, Sarah and The Willow Marsh Farm team were fantastic. They couldn’t do enough for us and our guests - we’ve had SO many comments from our friends and family saying how brilliant the venue and the team were!

    The venue is super special and was so perfect for us – the girls had the best night and morning getting ready in The Parlour, we got married next to the pretty spectacular fireplace, toasted marshmallows over the fire pit, played garden games on the grass, had some photos near the beautiful lake and danced the night away in the barn (mostly fueled on espresso martinis) – it literally had EVERYTHING we could’ve possibly wanted in a wedding venue and we can’t thank Simon and Sarah enough for helping us throw the biggest and best party of our lives!

    Our photographer has done a little blog about our day with a few sneak peak photos which really show of The Willow Marsh Farm :) https://www.kathrynedwardsphotography.com/2021/08/wedding-photography-at-willow-marsh-farm-amy-joe/?fbclid=IwAR3V6CNvwerlAsN_6gb0WxyCCllnNZwJjKopMe0X_pXwkvdSF0Jl8y8yPco

    The dream venue - couldn’t recommend enough

    We had our wedding at Willow Marsh this September and I literally couldn't recommend it enough as a venue. Simon and his family are the nicest people, couldn't be more accommodating and the barn is just stunning. We had an outdoor ceremony on the lawn, with the barn used for our meal in the evening. It is a stunning venue with amazing grounds for pics with the lake and willow marsh backdrop. It was a perfect day, thank you!

    Absolutely wonderful!

    My husband and I had our wedding reception at Willow Marsh Farm in August and it couldn’t of been more perfect. The venue and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful and unique. The amount of hard work that has gone into making it so lovely shines through. Simon was amazing from the beginning until after the wedding, his hard work and dedication made the day go perfectly. The other staff (including Simon’s wife, Sarah) were also wonderful on the day. We had so many positive comments from our friends and family who loved the venue just as much as we did. We recommend it to everyone! Thank you Simon and Sarah for making our day so special. Simon and Amber x

    Truly beautiful...

    We came across this venue by chance and were blown away by not only its beautiful country setting, stunning features and amazing backstory, but also by the truly wonderful owner, Simon!
    There is no venue like this in Nottingham - rural setting but close to the city, rustic and minimal - there is no 'corporate' or 'business' like feel and no mandatory packages - Simon offered complete flexibility for our day and pretty much allowed us free run to make our vision become a reality.
    I am so honoured that Simon let us be the first couple to be legally married here, as I have no doubt that this venue is going to be on every wedded couple-to-be's wish list.
