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.
We are very flexible and the idea 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.
Our Jacobean panelled dining room is licensed to hold wedding ceremonies. Alternatively, you may wish to do all the formalities in your own registry office or church, and then hold the reception at College Farm. We are located a few minutes' walk from St Martin's Church and it may be possible to get married there, subject to the necessary obligations being fulfilled.
Rare breed animals are kept at College Farm - chickens for eggs, sheep for breeding, and alpacas & llamas for keeping the foxes away from the chickens and for wonderful photo opportunities, particularly with Brian the Alpaca!
We also have pingos (shallow ponds formed during the last ice age) in the garden & woodland surrounding College Farm. Breckland is one of the few areas in the world where pingos can be found.
Following the government announcement on 23rd June we now allowed to take bookings from Saturday 4th July. We will start with just one B&B booking at a time to make sure we can maintain social distancing and make sure that each bedroom can be thoroughly cleaned and aired for a few days between bookings, but we hope to be able to welcome more than one booking at a time soon.
Wedding ceremonies of up to 30 people are allowed now and we are also open for wedding viewings.
Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss holding a small wedding here
We can’t wait to see you all soon!
1.17 Can weddings go ahead?
Yes, from 4 July, weddings and civil partnerships will be allowed to take place. You should only invite close friends and family, up to a maximum of 30 people. The wedding exception is for wedding ceremonies only. Large wedding receptions or parties should of course not be taking place. Wedding celebrations can only happen when people follow the guidance of six people outdoors, support bubbles, or two households indoors or outdoors. It is critical for these guidelines to be observed to keep you and your family and friends as safe as possible.
With best wishes from us all at College Farm
