Saturday 27th May was all about Sarah & Dom’s wedding! Time has certainly flown since the happy couple decided to hold their wedding ceremony at Lodge Farm House back in July ’16! Since confirming their booking with us at our beautiful countryside venue it’s been full steam ahead with the arrangements to make it a day to remember.
Sarah & Dom chose a 3-hat tipi structure supplied by the lovely Richard from Country Tipis which was efficiently built in the grounds 2 days before the wedding; giving everyone involved plenty of time to decorate and personalise the structure before the big day.
Sarah and her beautiful bridesmaids chose to stay the night before the wedding at our guest house; giving them all a chance to relax and enjoy the comfortable rooms, the honesty bar and the full English breakfast on the morning of the wedding before getting ready in the stunning surroundings of our intimate wedding venue.
Sarah & Dom married in historic St Mary’s church in Hitchin before returning to Lodge Farm House with their family and friends. I am sure that you will agree the bride & her bridesmaids looked stunning….
Guests enjoyed reception drinks in the sunshine before for making their way into the beautifully decorated tipi for their wedding breakfast and speeches. Everyone agreed that the food supplied by Kingfisher Catering was amazing, so we would like to give a shout out to Laura and John from Kingfisher for making it all happen so effortlessly.
The guests were bowled over with the beautiful venue, grounds, funky tipi structure and especially the Tipsy Pony; the converted horse trailer which was a big hit with all the wedding party!
All that is left to say is huge congratulations & best wishes to Sarah & Dom the new Mr & Mrs el-Beih from everyone at Lodge Farm House guest house!!
We hope that you had a wonderful honeymoon in Cuba and many thanks for the lovely review that you posted on TripAdvisor and Dom’s lovely mum Fiona posted on Facebook (as below)!
‘If you’re looking for the perfect venue to create your own wedding then look no further!
From the first time we drove through the gate we both knew we wanted to have our reception at Lodge Farm. It is a peaceful, intimate and deceptively large venue. The kids loved playing in the garden and so did the adults! The views are stunning, the terrace is pristine and the house is beautiful. And we’re only talking about the outside. Inside, the rooms are well appointed, each decorated sympathetically and with a warmth and charm that Maria herself exhibits in abundance.
Maria is a delightful, welcoming and magnanimous host. We both felt that she had genuinely invested in making our day the best one of our lives so far. She was always on hand during the lead up to the wedding and also last minute for the inevitable bits and pieces. Nothing was too much trouble. Also, breakfast is awesome!
If you thought that Lodge Farm looks beautiful during the day, rest assured that you will be amazed come the evening! Our guests could not fault the setting, the service and the welcome they received. Laura (event manager who works with Maria) works tirelessly to ensure that the day runs seamlessly. Her calm manner, good humour and practicality mean you can put your complete trust in her to give you the wedding that you asked for.
We cannot recommend Lodge Farm highly enough and we will hold it in our hearts always. 5 stars without a doubt. There are not enough superlatives!! Thank you so very much Maria, Laura and all of the team.” Dom & Sarah
“My son Dom & his lovely new wife Sarah had a fairytale wedding reception here on 27 May 2017. The house and gardens are beautiful and the tipis from Country Tipis were just right. We had a fun day on 26th dressing the tipis and tables.
The day itself was joyful and went without a hitch and the immediate families stayed in the house (all included in the price) afterwards & were treated to a delicious full English the next morning. We have wonderful memories of a very special day.
Maria, her wedding coordinator Laura and Ian from Kingfisher Caterers listened to what the happy couple wanted and helped them achieve it to perfection. I can’t recommend them all highly enough. A big thank you to them all.” Fiona, Dom’s mum.
