There’s so much to consider when it comes to choosing an intimate wedding venue and planning your special day. We’ve been hosting weddings in our countryside wedding venue since 2005 so we’ve put together a handy list of FAQ’s to help answer some of the questions you may have. If you are interested in holding your wedding at South Farm and have any questions about our Hertfordshire wedding venue or your big day then please get in touch – we’d love to talk weddings with you!

Yes, well-behaved dogs are allowed in all the outside spaces of our rustic farm wedding venue, with our prior approval. Dogs are not allowed in all of the indoor spaces, including the Tudor Barn, the Farmhouse or in any of the accommodation or carpeted areas.  The only exception to this is assistance dogs who of course are allowed in all spaces within our countryside wedding venue.

Pets are also now permitted during Civil Ceremonies (we are licenced by Cambridgeshire) but not in any of the carpeted areas so your pet can be part of your Ceremony if you are getting married either in the Old Dairy, Horse Barn or outside in the Summerhouse.

Please check with Cambridgeshire Registrars if you are having your ceremony with us and would like to include your pet.   

Does your countryside farm wedding venue have accommodation on site?

Yes, our country wedding venue can sleep 24 guests in total on-site. We have five ensuite guest bedrooms, two of which can sleep four. We then have our charming collection of five Showman’s and Romany Wagons which can each sleep two. In addition we have two camp beds and two travel cots for younger guests. We also have Fen Bridge Farm Bed & Breakfast, 1.4 miles down the road towards Bassingbourn which has three double rooms with a capacity of six or seven (one room has an additional sofa bed) All accommodation at South Farm and Fen Bridge Farm is automatically reserved for your wedding (please note there are two periods each year – the late May Bank Holiday and over Christmas & New Year – when Fen Bridge Farm will be closed and the accommodation will be unavailable). We also allow people to camp in our countryside farm paddocks – in a tent, caravan or camper van (we have two electric hook ups in the camping area) – there is plenty of room on site at our Cambridge wedding venue!

I love the idea of an outdoor ceremony but what if it rains on the day?

We always ask couples who would like to get married outside at our farm countryside wedding venue (March to October only) to choose an indoor option as well.  This gives a contingency in case of wet or windy weather and maximum flexibility.  We usually prepare both indoor and outdoor ceremony areas allowing for a last minute decision to be made.  The Registrars do have the final say on proceeding with an outdoor ceremony if the weather is changeable.

Arrange a visit

Just a rough guess needed and gives us an idea of month, season or year!
