Rosie and Marcus chose Saturday 15th July to hold their wonderful wedding at our beautiful countryside location. It seemed very fitting that the couple chose Lodge Farm House as their wedding venue, as Marcus is an Equine Vet. With our working livery on site and horses available for photo shoots it was the perfect choice!
Rosie and her bridesmaids checked in at Lodge Farm Band B on Friday afternoon and spent time with their event manager Laura from Kingfisher catering ensuring that everything was in place and planned to perfection.
The 3-hat tipi structure was decorated and personalised ready for the big day. Thanks to Richard and his team from Country Tipis for setting up such a stunning structure so professionally. The fire pit made for a stunning feature within the structure and a real talking point.
Celebrations started early with Rosie, her parents and her 3 gorgeous bridesmaids enjoying a home-cooked meal cooked the evening before their ceremony in the relaxing dining room at Lodge Farm House. Prosecco corks were popped and everyone enjoyed an evening of conversation in anticipation and excitement for the special day ahead.
Following a good night’s sleep in their comfortable rooms at our award-winning guest house, the morning started with breakfast and lots of coffee! Then the hair and beauty ladies from the Amore Salon in Hitchin worked their magic on the bride and bridesmaids, making them even more beautiful than they naturally are.
The grounds of Lodge Farm House were buzzing with activity, with everyone involved providing all the finishing touches to ensure everything was in place. Claire from Heaven Flowers added a great splash of colour with her amazing flower display at the front of the structure.
Everyone was ready and polished to perfection in their beautiful dresses, carrying beautiful bouquets and all very happy and excited to get the wedding started!
The vintage car arrived in good time to transport the bride, her bridesmaids and her very proud father to Christ Church in Hitchin.
Once the ceremony had taken place, the wedding party returned to Lodge Farm House with their guests to enjoy reception drinks of Prosecco and beers on the terrace and lawns. Before making their way into the beautifully decorated tipi for the wedding breakfast and speeches photographs were taken in the stunning grounds by Belle Momenti Photography, creating special memories to treasure.
The couple enjoyed a 3-course meal provided by the wonderful staff at Kingfisher catering. The smoked salmon starter, rump of lamb main and trio of desserts looked amazing. Guests commented on how delicious the food was, so again we would like to give a shout out to Laura and John from Kingfisher for making it all happen so effortlessly.
James McGuire Musician provided live music throughout the day and a disco which went on throughout the evening allowing everyone to enjoy the party, singing, dancing and celebrating with our happy newlyweds Rosie and Marcus.
We would like to take this opportunity to give huge congratulations & best wishes to Rosie & Marcus the new Mr & Mrs Bennett from everyone at Lodge Farm House guest house!!
