Beautiful venue, beautiful staff

We cannot thank the Willow Marsh staff enough for everything they did for our wedding day, from first contact to leaving the day after the wedding we couldn't have been happier with our choice to use Willow Marsh, our friends and family couldn't stop telling us how amazing they thought the venue was and equally how fabulous, friendly and professional every single member of staff was and we agree
It's one thing to find a beautiful building but to find that the people working there are just as beautiful is something very special and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have found them!

Perfect Wedding Venue

Where do we start? We held our wedding at The Willow Marsh Farm on Saturday 19th August 2023. From the moment we first viewed it we knew that it was the venue for us, it is simply stunning and really unique. You can tell that so much thought has been put into every aspect of the venue. Simon and Sarah were brilliant during the planning process and nothing was ever too much trouble. They are genuinely lovely people. The coordination on the wedding day was seamless, Simon and Emma made sure that everything ran perfectly. Thank you so much to Simon, Sarah and the team for our dream wedding. We will always be thankful to you and we cannot recommend The Willow Marsh Farm enough to couples looking for their perfect wedding venue.

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 best wedding venue ever!

We got married at Willow Marsh back in September & had the best day! The venue is stunning and the surroundings are a perfect backdrop for a wedding! Simon and the team are also amazing. Leading up to the wedding Simon was so helpful and responded quickly to any questions we might have & let us view the venue a few times in the lead up which was really nice. During our planning meetings he made us feel at ease & calmed any worries we had instantly. Across the whole weekend, they were amazing! Nothing was too much trouble& everything went so smoothly which was definitely due to the hard work of the team. We can’t recommend it enough! All of our friends and family have not stopped talking about how amazing it was and what a perfect day it was! Thank you so much!

Just perfect

From the moment we first enquired about Willow Marsh, to the morning after we tied the knot, the experience was just spot on, hassle free and exactly what we wanted.

Simon and Sarah went above and beyond and all the staff were amazing. We can’t recommend this venue more - not only is it stunning with beautiful hand built accommodation on site, but it’s family run. 10/10 - wish we could do it all again!

Best. Day. Ever

We had our wedding breakfast and evening reception at Willow Marsh Farm this April and it was incredible. The venue is absolutely stunning, definitely go see it because it is even better than the fantastic pictures! Simon is so helpful and gave us great suggestions throughout the planning stage to help our day run smoothly and as we wanted. All the staff on the day were great and so so friendly. The parlour is also amazing and such a lovely place to stay and have the yummy champagne breakfast that is provided for you the next morning. It's honestly the most beautiful venue and I really hope we get to go back one day! Thank you Willow Marsh Farm!

The most stunning and unique wedding venue

We had our wedding here last October at the Willow Marsh Farm and I couldn't be happier with with the whole experience. The owners Simon and Sarah are a dream to work with and the beauty of having your wedding here is you can truly make it your own and will be helped every step of the way! From the parlour where you get to spend the evening before the wedding as well as the night of, which is stunning in itself, to the actual grandiose of the barn and the beautiful lakes surrounding the farm, its so picturesque. We got married in the newly renovated stables which made for a unique ceremony space where we got some stunning photos from.
I wish we could do it all again and we wouldn't change a thing!

A dream venue

Where to start...STUNNING, ELEGANT & UNIQUE. This venue is simply one of a kind! We viewed countless venues when planning our big day, but none as special or as beautifully presented as The Willow Marsh Farm. The venue just exudes style the second you enter. The owners Simon and Sarah were a delight, very friendly and looked after us throughout the whole experience. Our wedding day was perfect, and exceeded all of our wildest expectations. The team at WMF kept the day running smoothly for us, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing.
We couldn't recommend this amazing venue enough to celebrate your special day. We are so glad we chose WMF….It will forever have a special place in our hearts and hold wonderful memories for us.
To Simon, Sarah & the rest of the WMF team…we cannot thank you all enough xxx

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.

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
