Whimsical Weddings

    Hawthbush Farm is a magical venue for a wedding. You can take the whole farm over for the weekend and we will put together a truly unique and memorable event. To keep things special we will only do a handful of weddings between June and September.

    Friday Evening Communial DIY BBQ
    Arrival from 4pm. After your guests have settled in, you are invited to use the barn facilities for a communal DIY barbeque at the top barn, we provide a large brick BBQ, fridge, tables, chairs, cutlery and crockery for you to cater a meal for all overnight guests.

    Saturday Day, Blessing
    Although we are not licensed for the ceremony itself, many couples choose to have blessing in our woodland clearing (weather permitting) or in our outdoor marquee. Most couples use a friend or family member as celebrant in this informal outdoor celebration.

    Saturday Afternoon, Reception
    • Large reception barn with wooden floor and canvas roof, set with wooden tables and chairs for up to 120, dressed with bunting and festoon lights.
    • large outdoor mowed area with tents and firepit, dressed with white bunting and festival style festoon lighting.
    • Outdoor bar tent and chill out area with leather chesterfield sofas and candelabra
    • Canvas covered wooden pole tent for blessing and cover
    • Large central fire pit, firewood provided and rustic seating

    You are free to arrange catering and drinks as you wish, and we can provide a list of reliable and reasonable suppliers.

    Sunday Survivors Brunch, 10am till 1pm
    You can use the barn to serve a Sunday Survivors Brunch, either cook it up yourself using our kitchen facilities, and crockery and cutlery or we can put you in contact with a caterer who will provide the whole thing.
