My husband and I had our wedding here in April '14
For us there was no other venue we wanted due to the hotel being on the same ground as the Download festival (where the proposal happened)
knowing that so much rested on the venue being perfect, we did come to Shelly and her team with a big ask and we couldn't have asked for a better day.
the venue is perfect - not wanting to get marred in a church, we held our service there, had cocktails in the courtyard, a beautiful meal of venison and cheese cake in the pig sty, more drinks in the bar then the reception in the barn, with a stage area for our band to play.
So many of our guest said how much they loved the venue. By having the bar area, the courtyard and the barn for the evening this meant our guests could sit and chat, go and dance or enjoy the games we set up in the bar rather than all being in one room with the loud music we chose playing, so there was something for everyone.
If you want a posh hotel wedding, don't come here, but if you want a venue that has plenty of charm, but with places to add your own touches this is the place!
the rooms are a little expensive for the night, but they are large, comfortable and the Farm house breakfast is lovely.
Shelly and her team where amazing, after 18 months of planning and Shelly having to reply to my million of emails they really made the day feel like it was the most important day to them too, and to me this was priceless.
For a homely, rustic style wedding with lots of places to take interesting photos, great food and a laid back feel my husband and I can't recommend Park Farm enough.
We're just sad we won't be popping back every few months as we did last year to go over the plans!
