Since airing on Tuesday September the 23rd 2014 (two years on from the Farm’s episode of Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me) BBC3 aired a wedding which saw groom Mark, plan his wedding for his bride-to-be Alex, in just three weeks, and the venue he carefully selected for the wedding to take place was none other than Cholderton Charlie’s Farm!
Since the show aired last year, it has since been repeated numerous times and has seen an influx of bookings for other couples choosing the farm to enjoy their own special days.
“I think that because the venue is such a unique and unusual choice of venue combined with it being great value for money, it’s really enticing for people wanting something memorable for the guests and the couple to enjoy” explains Sophie McConnell the Farm Manager and Events Coordinator on the farm, she goes onto explain what other factors may be appealing for couple’s to choose the farm as their venue; “We offer a great variety of choice and have so many options for the couples to choose from. We really push for each wedding to have its own personalised and individual touch, so some may opt for a barn wedding, others a smaller intimate day in the restaurant, or a large marquee, yurt, tipi or even inflatable venue outside.
“We are highly flexible and accommodating to ensure that each detail is finely personalised to each day, from the menu options to the table decorations, we can have much or as little to do with the day as the couple likes, if they want to do the majority themselves that’s fine with us, but equally we’re here to help wherever needed!”.
The farm is a licensed premises and also has a 4* 70-bed Youth Hostel for guests to book in for their overnight stays.
