Festival country weddings
An outdoor field wedding is an ideal blank canvas to customise your wedding how you want it.
At Brook House Farm, you can host an outdoor festival wedding, and also camp with friends and family,
and enjoy the outdoors over 3 or 4 days!
A customised outdoor wedding gives you so much more possibilities compared to the decorated function
rooms hotels tend to provide which tend to often be impersonal and very formatted.
Our grounds can be hired for exclusive & private use for festival weddings, birthdays, and corporate events.
You are sure to enjoy your big day without having to share the venue with another couple.
Nestled in an area of Natural Outstanding Beauty, Brook House Farm is an ideal venue
for festival wedding parties and other events in the heart of the Shropshire Hills.
At Brook house Farm we limit the numbers of festival outdoor weddings per year to only 8 dates between
May and end of September.
Each wedding on our site is unique and our mission is to offer you a very personalised service.
By limiting the number of weddings on our site we feel that you are going to have a great experience.
Most hotels, and formal venues are not always exclusive, and charge even more for exclusivity. And with a wedding
every other day can have a very impersonal "conveyor belt" feel to them. Maximising capacity is their driving force.
Booking our grounds as a wedding venue will mean that you will be getting our full attention from the moment you enquire.
We are at hand to help and advise you with various ideas and options, and help customise every aspect of your wedding.
We allow you be as creative as you wish. Help is at hand if you want help and contacts with marquees, tipis,
stretch tents etc.. When it comes to catering, we do not insist that you to have set menus or a specific caterer.
Nor do we insist on our choice of wines. We do not have any corkage charges, and we do not sell drinks ourselves.
If you prefer for someone to organise everything for you, we can put you in touch with a local professional
We do not have a wedding licence for the ceremony. You will need to get married in a church or registry office.
How about Fish and Chips, Paella, Mezes, grazing menus, Burritos, Street food, Hog roasts, barbeques, tapas,
Afternoon teas, 3 course sit down meals, Cheese and wine..
The choice is yours..
When it comes to food and drink, you can specify what you would like on the day and commission any
caterer of your choice to suit your style, and budget. The possibilities are endless.
We also have an excellent local caterer who will offer many choices to suit any budget
to include full service, cutlery, tables, chairs, linen, coffee service etc.. if required.
We do not have a licensed bar. If alcoholic drinks are to be sold to your guests you will need a licence,
or simply contract a mobile licensed bar. It is important to note that we do not have any corkage charges.
So no hidden costs!
As you can customise everything, when it comes to drinks you have the choice.
For example you could simply buy a couple of barrels of ale from the local brewery,
ask the local pub to help, buy drinks in advance and lay them on a table for self service,
hire a bar etc.. The are many possibilities.
We can again assist you with this and put you in touch with various suppliers such as
mobile vintage caravan bars etc..
With the four night rental you will have one night for a party until midnight. (max 100 evening guests)
The choice is once again yours. You can hire a professional DJ, a band, acoustic music, karaoke,
or simply bring a I-Pod dock for your music playlist. You can hire magicians, jugglers etc..
On the Friday or Sunday night you will also have access to our outdoor patio area with Firepit / Barbeque
and Pizza oven for a small second intimate party on the Friday night or Sunday night (maximum 12 guests)
(this will no longer be available for weddings taking place in 2020 onwards)
A beautiful setting
We are situated in the heart of the rural Shropshire hills, a designated Area Of Natural Outstanding Beauty.
Our grounds are immaculately kept and bordered by a brook and mature trees. The wedding field is flat, making
the erection of marquees easier, providing a maximum of useful space to design, theme and layout your wedding
how you want to. Your guests will left with unforgettable memories for years to come.
The area is peaceful and quiet, with no motorways and traffic noise to spoil the atmosphere.
You will have beautiful views of the Shropshire hills with lots of walks and open country side.
Furthermore there are two local pubs nearby within walking distance, as well as a village park with swings for
the kids just a couple of minutes down the lane.
Hiring a field can be another option for you, but bare in mind that most farmers fields would have an uneven surface
with weeds, thistles, mole hills, or livestock droppings, no toilets, no drinking water, no electrics, and no accommodation.
We are not a working farm. our fields are not farmed on and are very well maintained all year round, the grass is perfect
for the erection of marquees, tepees, or tents. Ideal for playing lawn games on a sunny afternoon, or simply enjoy the
shaded area by the brook.
Our two acre wedding field also offers exclusive and private accommodation for camping and glamping guests.
So why not make it a long week end and share this special moment with your friends and family over several days.
We offer the following accommodation:
- Hard standing areas for campervans,
- Two glamping pods,
- Two nomadic Yurts,
- A cottage for the bride and groom,
- Tent pitches for camping.

fire pits, washing up area, barbeques, picnic table and chairs.
Should the number of guests be over 50 people, we will provide an additional luxury trailer toilet block included
in your hire costs, so there are no hidden extra charges.
When you book our wedding venue, we include our beautiful cottage right next to the wedding field, making it a perfect
bridal suite for you to get ready, rest, and change during your stay or to make last minute preparations during your stay.
The cottage is a well appointed two bedroom cottage to sleep four, and benefits of Wifi connection should you need any
last minute web access before your wedding day.
Flexible packages & options
We have many packages and options to suit each style and budget.
You will find our venue and options very competitively priced saving you money compared to most country estates or hotel venues.
These sort of venues generally limit your options. Most operate a tight schedule with one night hire only.
Most other venues impose their set menus, caterers, wine list, or charge corkage, some even insist on their preferred DJ playing their
We allow you to totally personalise your wedding and impress your guests by throwing an unforgettable party.

Marquees, Tipis or Stretch tents:
We have several suppliers we can recommend at various budgets.
You first need to determine the size of marquee that you will require.
To work this out, you will need to consider the following questions:
1. How many guests will attend your wedding during the daytime?
2. Will you be having a sit down meal?
3. Will you want a buffet area?
4. Will you have a stage for a band and/or DJ?
5. Will you need space for a bar?
6. Will you have a dance floor?
7. Will your caterers need a separate catering tent?
8. How many additional guests do you expect in the evening?
As an example, to seat 100 guests on 6ft round tables, with a buffet area, stage,
bar area and dance floor, you are likely to need a 12m x 21m, or a 9m x 25m marquee.
When you come to view our facilities we will explain all of the options and possibilities we have for you.
We would love to show you around, and to discuss your wedding plans in detail, during our meeting we will
throw in many ideas and suggestions based on what has worked well or not so well for other couples.
