College Farm Weddings


We only hold a few weddings a year here at College Farm, making sure it remains a special place to get married.

The whole idea of getting married at College Farm is to make your wedding unique: we offer the setting and leave you to design the rest. We have a list of recommended local suppliers - everything from caterers to florists, dressmakers, hairdressers and wedding planners - but you are of course welcome to use your own. We are entirely flexible; our beautiful Jacobean panelled dining room is licensed to hold wedding ceremonies, but you may wish to do all the formalities in your own registry office or church - and then hold the reception at College Farm. We have a friendly herd of llamas and alpacas too - who are all too happy to provide wonderful photo opportunities and add something unique to your special day!


In light of the events of the past few months, we understand that many couples may now be thinking about holding a small, intimate wedding. We are delighted to be able to offer private, socially distanced weddings in a safe and secure environment, with no minimum number of guests - please see our Small Weddings page for more information.

 Government advice: can weddings go ahead?

At present, legally-valid ceremonies or formations are strongly advised to go ahead only where they can be done in a COVID-19 secure environment. It is also advised that the ceremonies are kept as short as reasonably possible and limited as far as reasonably possible to the parts of the ceremonies that are required in order for the marriage or civil partnership to be legally binding. No more than 30 people should attend a marriage or civil partnership, where this can be safely accommodated with social distancing in a COVID-19 secure venue.

Large wedding receptions or parties should not currently be taking place and any celebration after the ceremony should follow the broader social distancing guidance of involving no more than two households in any location or, if outdoors, up to six people from different households.

However, from 1 August, small wedding receptions will be able to take place - this means sit-down meals for no more than 30 people, subject to COVID-19 Secure guidance.

We can’t wait to see you soon!

With best wishes from us all at College Farm
