Little black book

Being a dry-hire venue means that we can offer greater flexibility when it comes to planning your perfect day.

Although we don't tie you down to certain vendors & caterers, we do know that having a few on recommendation is always helpful!

We've curated a list of some of the suppliers that our couples (and us!) have loved working with here at Hall Farm -

so whether its caterers, street food vendors, bars, florists or table wear hire, we can point you in the direction of some fantastic, local, wedding & event suppliers.

At this stage we do not hold a license for marriages at Hall Farm, however there are registry offices within a few miles and some lovely churches locally where you can hold your ceremony before arriving at Hall Farm for your reception. We can also offer a beautiful setting for blessings or humanist ceremonies and can recommend a wonderful Celebrant for your event.

How Many guests can we invite? This all depends on where you choose to hold your event at Hall Farm.

Please contact us for further information.

Can we choose our prefered caterer? Yes! As we are a 'Dry Hire' venue, we encourage you to bring in your own choice of caterer so that you can enjoy your day, your way. Any external caterer should be equipped with their own gazebo in which to prepare food for the day. We will however provide water and electric.

Do you provide a bar? You can choose to bring in your own external company to run a bar for you on the day (subject to their appropriate licences) additionally, we are also happy for you to provide your own drinks for your guests - however to ensure that your day runs smoothly, and that waste is managed properly, we do stipulate that the serving of drinks is managed by your caterer or other professional. Please note that after 5pm on the day of your event, we will only allow plastic glassware to be used on site.

What access do we have to the venue before & after our event? As part of the package(s) we give couples and their families one full day prior to the event to set up and decorate (from 9am - 5pm) and ask that the day after all items are removed and the venue cleared of any decorations by 1pm. This would also be applicable for any external hire companies providing entertainment or equipment. We try to be flexible so should you wish to extend this time we can arrange this in advance.

What about music? Music is key in creating a wonderfully atmospheric day for you and your guests, whether that's having a live band or a disco in the evening. Please note that there are restriction as to where amplified music can be played at the venue and any live bands must adhere to our noise limit policy and LIVE AMPLIFIED music must be finished by 21.30. Any DJ or third party entertainment/group you hire should also have the relevant insurances in place.
