Most couples have a definite vision of how they want their Big Day to be. Look for a venue that embraces your dreams! At South Farm we offer a beautiful back-drop for couples to add their own personal touches. Brides favouring a rustic shabby chic theme will love the stunning back-drop the gardens and barn buildings offer. Almost anything goes from opulent floral arrangements, simple greenery, vintage inspired bunting, flickering candle lanterns and twinkling fairy lights. Transform our beautiful barn backdrop and gardens and see your fairy tale wedding come true!


Before booking your wedding your venue should provide you with a detailed estimate showing what your wedding will cost you. At South Farm the website is refreshingly transparent and gives details of the venue, prices, menus, availability and much more. Couples are welcomed to visit for a personal tour and can sit down with one of our wedding planners who will talk them through all the elements of the day and provide an itemised costing for them. At South Farm there are no hidden extras and costs will only change from your first estimate if you decide to make changes to your guest numbers, menu choices or the date of your wedding!


We totally appreciate that every couple is unique and all have different planning needs, questions, timescales and objectives along the way. We support couples throughout the planning process with our dedicated team of wedding co-ordinators on hand to answer questions and give advice. When it comes to your wedding day at South Farm you will also have a dedicated Event Manager to look after you and your guests and take care of all the details ensuring your day runs perfectly and according to your wishes.
