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?

Summary of changes from 19 July 2021


From 19 July, the rules for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies; and wedding receptions and civil partnership celebrations will change.

Step 4:

  1. There are no legal restrictions on the number of people that can attend a wedding, civil partnership, reception or celebration.
  2. Legal requirements for social distancing will no longer apply and you will not need to stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with.
  3. Face coverings are no longer required by law in any setting. However, the government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.
  4. COVID-secure rules, including table service requirements and restrictions on singing and dancing, will no longer apply. However, there are steps everyone should continue to consider to reduce the risk of transmission, which are explained in this guidance. All businesses should follow the principles set out in the working safely guidance.
  5. If someone has been instructed by NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate because they have tested positive for COVID-19, or they’re the close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, they must still self-isolate and not attend.


We can’t wait to see you soon!

With best wishes from us all at College Farm
