HADSHAM FARM WEDDINGS
A truly unique celebration
Our tranquil venue gives you the scope and freedom to create a truly bespoke experience, an original wedding that you and your guests will remember for years to come!
Exclusively yours for the duration of your stay, we provide the venue and associated infrastructure to make it work - permanent Tipis, power, toilets, showers, accommodation, water, furniture, lighting and sound system – and you organise the rest – in short, the food, the drinks, the decoration and the music!
Best of all, we offer you the flexibility to choose your own suppliers and the opportunity to create a truly unique occasion.
Daunted? Don't be! We’ve been hosting events at the farm since 2012 and have built up a great team of tried and trusted suppliers who know Hadsham Farm and love working here so if you want the DIY wedding but without having to do it all on your own, we can recommend some great caterers, bar teams, stylists and wedding co-ordinators.
Weekend hire = Friday (9am) to Sunday (3pm)
Mid-week hire = Tuesday (midday) to Thursday (midday)

Because special weddings take time to set up, we give you access to the venue from Friday morning at 9am until Sunday afternoon at 3pm. Or for a mid-week event, that's Tuesday at midday until Thursday at midday.
We don’t have set suppliers and we don’t charge corkage so you can save money with a free choice of caterers and you can bring your own drinks. We don’t dictate what décor or colour schemes you should use and you can also bring your own music!
'We had our wedding at Hadsham Farm last July and cannot recommend it highly enough as a blow-your-socks-off wedding venue. Charlie and his family/team are so very helpful, make your life incredibly easy (which is tricky with pulling off a big DIY affair) and it feels like every question you have has already been considered by them. The tipis are beautiful and the whole setting is magical. Overall it is amazing value for such an epic venue. You won't be disappointed! Gina and Mark x' July 2019
We will never be able to thank Charlie and Fiona enough for opening their beautiful venue to us. It is the most perfect setting, every one of our guests commented on how amazing it was. Nothing was ever too much for Charlie, and he was there to help for everything and anything we needed. Our wedding was beyond perfect, and we will forever be grateful to you both. Thank you.' Sophie & Peter, September 2019
