And the answer is...
Q: Can I choose my own caterers?
Yes, we don't make you use any in-house catering but you must choose a caterer from our list of partners. We have worked with all them previously and think their food is fab. They’re all different and should cover everything and anything you want! We do not receive commission for recommending them.
Q: What’s the deal with alcohol?
The bar is run by The Woolpack and they can arrange a bespoke drinks menu for you. From 2019 we are a corkage free venue. This operates from your welcome drinks to the end of your meal. The bar will then open. Alternatively you can arrange all of your daytime drinks through the bar. The bar will close at 11.45pm.
Q: Can we use our own suppliers?
Yes! Excluding the bar and caterers you can use anyone you like! We recommend some suppliers we have worked with previously and rate very highly but by no means do you have to choose them.
Q: Can we have our ceremony at Huntsmill Farm?
Yes, we are licensed for civil ceremonies.
Q: What if I want a church ceremony?
St. Edward the Confessor Church in Shalstone is just across the road from the farm and the vicar Liz Simpson would be more than happy to chat to you about holding your ceremony there.
Q: Is confetti allowed?
Yes, but as a working farm we ask that you stick to natural real flower petal confetti.
Q: What time does music have to finish?
Midnight. We recommend you aim for a last song at 11:45pm.
Q: Can we have an after party?
Yes (within reason). You can take the party back to your cottages but please be respectful of your friends and relatives staying at the farm. The farmhouse is also on the courtyard and is family occupied and you will be asked to disperse if you are too loud or disruptive.
Q: Can we invite our guests back to the barn on Sunday?
No. You are limited to one party at Huntsmill Farm. However you and your guests staying at the farm are welcome to use the grounds and facilities.
Q: Is camping allowed?
No. Unfortunately not but there are caravan pitches which are available to book.
Q: Can we come for a visit?
Yes, we would love you to come for a visit so we can show you round and answer any questions you may have.
