YOUR WEEKEND - YOUR WAY
Exclusively yours for the duration of your stay, we provide the venue - Tipis, power, toilets, water, accommodation, furniture, lighting and sound system – and you organise the rest – in short, the food, the drinks, the decoration and the music!
Here's a suggestion of how your celebratory time with us might work....
SET UP TUESDAY/FRIDAY - spend a really meaningful day with family and close friends setting up for your big day - with or without your chosen suppliers. A member of the Hadsham Farm team will meet you in the morning and run through where everything is and how it all works. Then it's over to you - plug your playlist in and let your creativity flow!
TUESDAY/FRIDAY NIGHT - retreat to our Wedding Suite shepherds hut or one of our glamping Bell Tents on site or head off to your hotel, bed & breakfast or hired holiday house to relax. Then perhaps head out for a pre-wedding meal at one of the many fantastic eateries in the local area. All the while leaving the Tipi in the safe hands of our friendly security guard.
THE BIG DAY - It's finally here! Get showered, have breakfast and then get ready in your hotel, weekend rental property or our luxury Wedding Suite shepherds hut.
Then head off in style for your ceremony - be that at a local church, other licensed venue or for your personal celebrant-led ceremony at Hadsham Farm itself.
THE RECEPTION - enjoy welcome drinks by the Tipi - either supplied by you and served by your caterers or supplied and served by a bar supplier of your choosing.
Then into the Tipi to sit down for the feast to be served by your caterers. And with total freedom of choice in terms of your suppliers, foodies can go completely wild without breaking the bank!
Follow (or precede) your meal with some memorable speeches using our wireless microphones.
Photography session - don't forget your photographer will want some one-on-one time with you! After the meal is ususally a good time because the setting sun at the end of the lake provides some great light.
Don't forget to Cut the Cake!
First dance, then dancing the night away!
Sore feet? Take a break in the chill-out tent or toast a marshmallow or two over either our indoor bio-ethanol fire-pit or our outdoor brazier complete with crackling logs.
Midnight will be here before you know it and your pre-booked taxis will arrive to pick up your guests at the end of the disco. For those staying on site, head to the chill-out tent with some background tunes and carry on until the cows come home - or at least until you can't resist the call of your bed!
CLEAR DOWN THURSDAY/SUNDAY - Take a refreshing hot shower in our on-site shower block (x3) (from 2020 onwards) and then cook-up a brunch on our BBQ to fuel the troops before setting them to work clearing the venue back down and disposing of all your waste in our recycling bins.
A member of the Hadsham Farm team will then come and meet you before you hand the venue back to us and head off with many happy memories of a wonderful and relaxed wedding weekend in the Cotswolds.
‘What an amazing venue, we couldn’t have picked a more perfect place for our wedding! We loved the Tipi and the setting was just stunning! It was exactly what we wanted, the day went so smoothly and was everything we dreamed it would be. Charlie and Fiona were so helpful in the run up to the wedding and always took time to answer my many emails. We loved the flexibility with the venue and being able to hire exactly what and who we wanted. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for their perfect wedding venue!! Wish we could do it all over again! Thank you again, Mr and Mrs Wamsley.’ September 2018
