Whether you opt for a traditional wedding ceremony in a church and a marquee wedding reception, or an outdoor ceremony with straw bales and country music, Fordhall has something to offer every bride & groom.
Our beautiful organic landscape based in the Tern Valley offers views and choice, especially for those looking for a more relaxed celebration.
No longer do you need to be restricted to the rules of a Church or Registry Office. Here you can do as you please.
With the legalities sorted at a time to suit you, you can be free to create our own ceremony on the farm.
Perhaps on our Norman Ringwork and Bailey Site (pictured previous page) or perhaps in our woodland. We can even arrange for a tractor and trailer to escort you and your guests to the ceremony destination.
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; it is completely your choice.
Catering options can vary from canapés, to Ploughman's buffets, hog roasts, roast dinners or silver service bespoke menus. We also have a catering trailer for late evening celebrations and an all-you-can-eat farm BBQ.
Most of our ingredients are sourced organically, everything is seasonal. Meat is sourced direct from the farm.
Breakfast can also be booked for guests who are camping on site.
We can provide a fully stocked bar which is either provided free to your guests or charged individually. We can source barrels of fantastic local real ales, reasonably priced organic wines and even a fantastic collection of local wines.
We can serve drinks to the table, or set up the barrels for guests to help themselves to all night long!
The Straw Lodge, Marquee, Yurt or Tipi
We work with trusted suppliers of either marquees or tipi's for the farm. These can be as elaborate or as simple as you like. This is your day and every aspect can be tailored to suit your vision and your numbers of guests. For the smaller wedding, we have a beautiful Straw Lodge onsite. Built using straw bales and roundwood timber this beautiful space can seat 60-70 guests on long banqueting tables or 80 guests for a ceremony.
Our Yurts are available for hire and consist of a bedroom suite (double bed and a set of bunk beds) and living area suite (with a sofa bed). They can sleep six or you can hire them as your bridal suite, with breakfast delivered to you in the morning.
With all the comforts inside and decking outside with a view along the Tern Valley, they make the perfect romantic hideaway.
For larger groups the Straw Lodge has bunkrooms and can accommodate up to 25 guests. Camping is allowed.
