Today's featured wedding venue is the fabulous Crockwell Farm. A beautiful and yet still a working farm, in South Northamptonshire not far from the Warwickshire and Oxfordshire borders. Crockwell is a respected family run venue, and offers exclusive use for your wedding over a three day period. The stone buildings provide a beautiful backdrop, as does the very well kept garden area. Crockwell has 400 acres of land, with the main venue right in the middle surrounded by fields. Crockwell offers plenty of flexibility with how you can host your wedding, the Vaulted Barn, the Saddle Room Bar, the Starlit Marquee and the outside Orchard Pavilion all provide you with various options.
Crockwell Farm has a Civil Marriage License Facility, and is registered with the Northamptonshire Registrar. Services can take place in the Vaulted Barn, a beautiful rustic barn with high ceilings, oak beams, brick walls, and window alcoves. The Barn can host up to 86 guests. For weddings with a large number of guests, the Main Marquee can easily accommodate up to 200 guests. The marquee is light, and warm on colder days. The Main Marquee is then used for the wedding breakfast, which is set up after the ceremony and during the drinks reception. Alternatively, on warm summer days, the outside Orchard Pavilion is a stunning option to host a wedding service. There is plenty of space in the Orchard to host the service, including up to the maximum possible at Crockwell, of 200 guests. Likewise you can also have your religious wedding service in a church of your choosing.
Crockwell Farm is very well aware that food is an important part of a wedding day, they themselves love good food, and they aim to please real foodies. With this in mind they use the award winning caterers called Ross & Ross. Winners of the 'Wedding Industry Awards Caterer of the year in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Ross & Ross caterers offer many menu options which are not only flexible and inspirational, and can be perfectly tailored your your taste. In 2020 Crockwell Farm had a major refurbishment which included updating the Bar area. This is a licensed bar specialising in providing quality service and drinks for weddings and large parties.
Back in 1999 first started to invest and design the ultimate wedding barn venue. With receptions being held from 2000 onwards, and the first civil ceremony taking place the following year. With over twenty years experience, this family run venue will be able to help you plan your wedding and provide advice which will make it a day to remember for years to come. It's no wonder that on average they host up to 70 events every year.
Crockwell Farm is a wedding photographer's dream when shooting at this venue. With beautiful rustic buildings including the barns, the guest cottages, the airy main marquee, the Orchard Pavillion, the close by fields for couple photos, and also the well kept gardens all offer countless opportunities for fabulous photographs. Hermione spends as much time as possible through the year tending to the gardens, and there are so many different areas to have your photos taken.
If you are considering hosting your wedding in a rural setting, in the middle of beautiful countryside and amongst wonderful farm and rustic barn buildings, then Crockwell Farm should be on top of your list.
