Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
The best wedding would have to be ours! But thats only because without that, we would not be here helping other couples plan theirs too.
We set Long Furlong Farm venue up for our own wedding in July 2018.
(Although now we have enhanced the venue and met some amazing suppliers - we are planning to do it all again in 2023!)
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Keep it all about the two of you - choose the venue you want, with the food & drink you want, the guests you want - its so easy to get totally overwhelmed, but if you don't put out a sign saying "choose a seat - not a side" no one will know or notice (trust us!)
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We love seeing all the different personal touches that our couples have incorporated into their day, our venue is the perfect place for them to do this.
Whether its from home (house plants, furniture, cushions, signs) or something that reminds them of a holiday (food, cocktails or music) its all about the personal touches which make it unique and special
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Exclusivity, Flexibility, Friendly, Welcoming, inspirational
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
We have placed a bench at the highest point of our farm, overlooking the barn and open countryside. We had our photos taken in this spot and encourage all our couples to have some time out to themselves (and their photographer) to reflect on the day - and get some amazing photos!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
What’s your favourite canapé?
Anything with cheese
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Seeing the stars and trying to work out the formations.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Long Furlong Farm's most unique feature is (ironically) that it can be keep being made unique with every wedding and event.
By couples having the freedom to choose their own styling, furniture, entertainment, personal touches and caterers - no two weddings will ever look the same.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Our partnership - setting the venue up for our own wedding was a challenge (especially within the 9 months that we gave ourselves to do it!)
We have since overcome many other challenges to make the venue available for other couples to enjoy and we get to work together every day, doing this.
