Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Meadow Weddings wedding like?
No two weddings at our venue could be alike as it is a blank canvas for couples to design as they like. The general vibe is relaxed, open-air and natural.
Can we get legally married at the venue?
As the law stands at the moment, no. In England, you cannot get married outdoors. However, what you can do is get married at a registered building and then have a tailor-made ceremony, led by a celebrant.
What facilities does the field have?
The field has running water, but no electricity. You would need to hire in a generator for your event - we can connect you with events companies who can get this sorted for you.
How much does it cost to get married at Meadow Weddings?
Field hire only is £2,750 for four days. After that there are the suppliers to think about:-
Event space (marquee/tipi)
Can we organise the whole thing ourselves?
Yes, by all means. The only requirement we have is that you organise security for any time you have guests onsite. Check out our suppliers list for companies you could use.
What packages do you offer?
For those couples who are looking for a bit more support with their planning, we work with Christopher James Events to offer a "Basics" package, which includes posh loo hire, security, a generator, outside lighting and day-before co-ordination. This is subject to availability but is a great option if you don't want to organise the more mundane bits of the day! The cost of this is £2,750.
Chris can also organise marquee/tipi hire as well as many other aspects of the day.
Can we have camping/glamping at our wedding?
Yes! We think this is a great bonus for field venues. The field is yours for the weekend, so if your guests wish to stay over, they'd be more than welcome!
Do you have parking at the venue?
Yes - there is ample parking in the field for your wedding guests. The parking space is hidden away from your main event space, so it won't ruin your beautiful pictures.
Do we have to choose certain suppliers?
No. Although we have recommended suppliers, who share our ethos, we believe that couples should be able to design the day of their dreams.
What restrictions are there on the use of the field?
Very few - we like to think we are pretty easy going. Couples should note:-
We ask that amplified music goes off after 11PM. Acoustic guitars around the campfires would be fine, but nothing that disturbs our neighbours' beauty sleep!
We ask that no glassware is taken onto the grass (inside tents with flooring is fine) so that there is no risk to livestock.
We are happy to provide firepits, but would ask that these are located in certain areas to be agreed in advance.
Do you rent the field for other events (birthdays/festivals etc.)?
We are open to renting the field for other events, but we only host a very small number of events each year, so please contact us to discuss.
What happens if we have to postpone our wedding due to Covid?
We set up Meadow Weddings to support couples who wish to get married but have found it difficult due to Covid, so we aim to be as flexible as possible - if your date has to be changed due to Covid, we will transfer your deposit to that day at no cost to you.
What are the terms for payment?
We take a £250 deposit to secure your chosen date. 50% is due 6 months before your event and the balance is paid 6 weeks before the event.
