What is Included in the price?

How do we pay?

If you would like to go ahead with securing your wedding date, all we would need is a signed copy of your quote (you can either scan and return via email, or post) along with a 25% deposit that you can pay via the BACs transfer, cheque or cash. Once received, we send you a confirmation email. Then your date, booking price, and exclusive time at the venue would be yours! Anything you would like to add/remove from your quote can be completely changeable up until 28 days before your day, which is when final payment would be due. We will send you a final invoice at this point.



Can we come and see the venue?

Absolutely! We are around most days to meet with you and whoever you would like to bring along. If you want to see the venue all set up within season, May-September is the best time, but we are open to viewings all year around. You can visit as many times as you like, and we will put the kettle on ready! As you can appreciate though, visits are by appointment only and so if you would like to come and have a look around, or sit down for a chat, or you want to get stuck into some planning… you can get in touch by email, phone or text anytime! 


Do you only host weddings?

While this is our speciality, we can, and do, also hold parties too! If you have an event that you would like to hold here, please get in touch!


Can we just have an evening reception?

Of course you can, when you book with us, the venue is exclusively yours for the day of your event, the afternoon


Can you get married here?

We can’t provide a legal ceremony here with us being an outdoor venue (hopefully the new government plans will change this soon!) But we do have a beautiful blessing area on site at Oaktree Farm, where you can walk down the isle in the outdoors surrounded by nature and your nearest and dearest guests.


What if it rains?

No problem! The stretch tent has been cleverly designed so that it can be closed yet still allow the beautiful daylight to come through. We can quickly move anything around that was planned to be outside so that you day will still go ahead without any issues and we can also provide heating included in the price if it gets a little chilly.


You have preferred suppliers, do we have to use them?

No, you aren’t obliged at all to use anyone we suggest, we are just trying to help your day run to it’s best potential. We love our preferred suppliers, and they have worked with us over the years so much that they know our venue and guest requirements well. If you have someone that you would prefer to use instead,  they are welcome here too!


Can we use confetti?

Yes you can! It is such fun and it makes the most wonderful photo opportunities too! The only thing we ask is that it is biodegradable.


Are fireworks allowed?

Unfortunately, on this one, we don’t. We are a farm and we are surrounded by beautiful animals and wildlife, therefore, we can’t have fireworks here. 


We do however; love sparklers! They are great fun for adults and children (when used safely of course!) and as it gets dark, creates an amazing visual effect and photographs!


Are dogs allowed?

Yes! As long as they are well behaved, we know they are coming beforehand, and have somewhere to go home to before the party gets started! (I hear dogs aren’t really that much into the partying scene anyway!)


Do we have to have a top table?

Not if you don’t want to! They layout of the venue depending on numbers is completely personal to you. We will suggest the best layout based on your table plan and so if this doesn’t include a top table, that is no problem at all!


Is the venue wheelchair accessible?

Yes, we have specific areas around the venue that allow wheelchair users to enter the tent and photo areas with ease. We provide disabled toilets and allow our guests who have restricted ability to walk through the field to be driven right up to the tent so that they don’t have difficulty.


Are there any changing facilities for babies?

Yes, our luxury boutique toilets are fitted with baby change facilities. If for any reason they are out of use, we will provide a little mat and area so that babies can stay fresh!
