Hill Farm House wedding in Brigstock
Planning a wedding at The Hill Farm House in Brigstock?
Then you’ll love the tipi wedding featured in this post …
There are donkeys, llamas, doves, countryside views, rustic details, pretty flowers, fairy lights … and did I say donkeys?
Then add in happy sunflowers, G&Ts around the firepit, and first dance in the apple orchard on a Persian rug dancefloor!
It was quite the day.
And quite the journey to get there …
Natasha and Richard originally booked another venue. But thanks to Covid, that venue sadly closed. So with just a few months to go, they had to plan an entirely new day, on a new date, at a new venue. And even then, the ‘will we/won’t we be able to have our wedding?’ and ‘what the heck do we do now’ moments increased as their wedding drew nearer.
But it was meant to be. And Natasha and Richard made the most of it. Come the day, number restrictions, masks, sanitiser stations and social distancing were nothing more than a tick in a box – and a photo opp!
It may not have been the wedding they originally imagined, but it certainly seemed very ‘them’.
And their choice of venue – The Hill Farm House – played a large part in that.
Here’s why …
The Hill Farm House is the caterpillar’s cankles
This was my first wedding at The Hill Farm House and I knew I’d like it.
As an animal lover, I was super excited to meet the resident menagerie of furry and feathered friends. And Nadine at Teepees and Tents who provided the tipi said it’d be right up my wedding aisle.
But before all that … there’s the owner, Niki.
Niki went out of her way to help me capture the best possible photos for Natasha and Richard.
She won me over with the warmest welcome, a guided tour, offering to move anything in my way, running full-speed to get the llamas in the perfect spot, relentlessly whistling for the doves to come home … and the most tea I’ve ever been offered at a wedding venue.
And if I feel that welcome, their couples must feel more spoiled than a royal Corgi.
My favourite thing was that Natasha and Richard were able to have their wedding, rather than the wedding a venue does.
Spontaneously spending more time at the pub en route from the church to the reception and having dinner later than planned so they could relax around the firepit before the food was served? No problemo. Now, the 15-guest-limit helped here, but still, I can’t think of another venue that would be so accommodating. A privately-owned family-run venue is always a winner for a personalised and meaningful day.
But it’s not just the people.
The place is pretty neat too.
If you love the outdoors, you’ll love The Hill Farm House
It’s one of the coolest venues for a wedding in Northamptonshire. There are so many unusual nooks and crannies; and interesting features wherever you look. And then there are the fields at golden hour. What a dream!
That’s another fave Northants venue for my list.
So if you’re planning a wedding at The Hill Farm House, I’d love to hear from you!
