There’s so much to consider when it comes to choosing a Cambridge 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 civil wedding venue or your big day then please get in touch – we’d love to talk weddings with you!

Our venue hire fee includes exclusive use of South Farm for the duration of your event plus all the extras you need….tables, chairs, crockery, glasses, table linen and all our twinkly fairy lights throughout the venue so you don’t have to worry about hiring additional items in. There are also lots of extras we provide, included in the venue hire, to make your day seamless and unique, sound systems in all our ceremony spaces, microphones for speeches and even bio-degradable South Farm rose petal confetti! You will have a dedicated, experienced Event Manager and a friendly and professional Front of House team on hand to look after you, your guests, your suppliers and all the little details so that you can relax and just enjoy your day!

How accessible is South Farm?

Although we are set in the countryside our farm venue is fully accessible with paving and pathways around the whole venue and everything on ground floor level. The entrance door into the main farmhouse and French windows out onto the terrace have small thresholds to get over but we have ramps which can be put out on arrival – just let us know that these are required at your Planning Meeting. We also have a rest room with disabled access in the Horse Barn. Accommodation-wise our most accessibly friendly bedroom on site is the Tack Room, this is located near to the Tudor Barn and has a walk in shower and hand rail next to the toilet. At Fen Bridge Farm, our sister B&B down the road, there is fully accessible disabled accommodation for two.

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

We know many couples are interested in a winter wedding venue, which is why we always ask couples who would like to get married outside (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!
