Wedding Open Day at River Cottage HQ
Sunday 5th April 2020
We know how time consuming and stressful it can be to organise a dream wedding as we have hosted more than two hundred here at River Cottage HQ over the last 12 years. Our guests are at the heart of every event we run and this is particularly evident when we help happy couples plan and enjoy their special day.
Next spring we are celebrating the season of romance and inviting brides and grooms to join us on our 100-acre farm and find out more about a River Cottage wedding. The open day begins with a short ride down the track with breath-taking views across the valley to our courtyard, and be greeted with a glass of bubbles. Guests will be encouraged to explore the organic smallholding including our beautiful walled kitchen garden, the iconic 17th century farmhouse, the stunning 18th century threshing barn, alfresco decking and cosy Mongolian Yurt.
We have also invited fantastic local bridal businesses to attend and share their expertise, so whether a couple is looking for a venue or is focused on the special touches to add to their big day, we can help. River Cottage will be styled and set-up for a wedding with a little help from our talented suppliers to give couples the full experience.
Food is at the heart of what we do and we will be showcasing this throughout the day, with our chefs available to talk to guests about creating the perfect wedding menu featuring local, seasonal and organic produce. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and sample some of the delicious tasters on offer. In addition our wood fired pizzas will also be available to purchase on the day – a popular choice for evening food during the wedding party!
Our dedicated wedding coordinator and experienced, friendly team at River Cottage will be on hand to show guests around HQ and discuss their hopes and dreams for their special day. We hope that guests will leave us full of inspiration and excitement for their celebration ahead.
Please note that show arounds need to be booked in advance and times will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, please email [email protected] to reserve a slot.
