Wedding ceremony

The Ceremony

Whether you would prefer a traditional wedding ceremony and reception, or a more informal relaxed approach to your special day, here at Fordhall Farm we can cater for all.

With the legalities sorted at a time to suit you, you can be free to create our own ceremony on the farm.

For more information visit Shropshire Registry Services.

With a selection of ceremony destinations on site, including our beautiful roundhouse structure nestled away in the woodlands, or perhaps our Norman Ringwork and Bailey site with an outstanding view across the valley, you will be spoilt for choice as to where to host your nearest and dearest for your ceremony.

We are fully registered with Shropshire council to hold legal ceremonies right here on site, so long gone are the days of being restricted to a church or registry office to share your vows.

We  work closely with local celebrants to ensure that your ceremony is personal to you and your partner. It can include music, readings, a dress or none of the above, your day, your way.

Things to do during your stay


You will be left to your own devices during your stay, and are free to explore our picturesque organic farm. We have farm trails weaving around the farm, which will take you around our pastures, woodland and along the river. Why not say hello to some of our friendly animals as you explore?

Our organic Farm Shop is a short walk away, where you can purchase delicious local produce to prepare in the yurts. We can also provide you with a hamper of your favourite goodies to make your stay stress- and decision-free – just let us know when you book.

Our yurts are designed to help you reconnect with nature, your loved ones and yourself. They are well and truly off-grid. For this reason we have no Wi-Fi facilities at the yurts. There are electricity sockets available for use at the farm in the main building, but with the Shropshire Hills as your playground, this is the perfect place to switch off!

The nature of our yurts and surroundings lends itself perfectly to families that home educate; there are so many new experiences you can enjoy with your children whilst they learn about the natural world first hand.
