    Here are some of the comments we have received from couples we have worked with.

    Elizabeth & Rob Wood
    Our wedding at Burnicombe Farm in August 2012 was truly delightful. Although originally from the UK we live in Berlin and relied pretty much on Google to find and arrange everything for our wedding. We were both very keen on an informal setting and having a campfire and we happened upon Burnicombe Farm quite quickly as there were so few venues that offered this, so on learning they had a date free in August we booked it without having even seen the venue.
    We visited the venue a few months prior to the wedding and couldn’t have been happier with our choice. We were stunned by the rolling hills and gorgeous views and the farmhouse was delightful. The remote location did make the venue a little hard to locate (even with a sat nav) but it was also a wonderful challenge to find it and once there we knew we’d found somewhere really special – a complete antidote to our busy city lives.
    Most of the planning was done via a string of emails with Georgina, and I felt like she was always very on top of arrangements, accommodating with any whims and really helpful with advice at all times.
    The ceremony in the arbour was just perfect, the sun coming out on us exactly as we exchanged rings. Guests sat around on haystacks and benches and there were kids of all ages playing about so we managed to completely escape the formal feel and relax. We decorated the arbour ourselves with lilies to go with our 1920s theme and had music from an old portable gramophone and it was beautiful.
    The guests enjoyed delicious homemade lemonade and cream teas made by Georgina and then went on to play games we’d set up in the adjoining field. We had complete freedom to organise it as we wanted and what was really good was the amazing calmness and flexibility of Georgina and Trevelyan as we had to shift about some of our plans in the day to fit a very full itinerary.
    We had over 25 young children guests and they all seem to have had a great day partaking in the races and playing in the kids tent and with extra games we’d set up. They all loved the kids boxes of food provided by Georgina and the staff were really helpful in making the day particularly friendly for all of us with young children (we have a 1 year old daughter ourselves!).
    As expected my favourite part was the evening. We had a big swing band and the Raj tent was accommodating enough for over 120 guests to dance, eat cake and enjoy the cheeseboard and chat by the bar, all in one place which was great. Ending it off with acoustic music by friends round the campfire made a dream come true.
    The food was delicious, the atmosphere was magical and the feedback we had from everyone about the day was all wonderful. Just wish we could do it all again.

    We both want to say a big thank you to Burnicombe Farm!
    We had the most fantastic day, the venue was beautiful, surrounded by amazing views. The tipis were just great, we wanted something a little out of the norm and boy did they deliver.
    Despite choosing a cold day in October the tipis were cozy with the fire pits blazing.
    Georgina and Trevelyan could not have been more helpful and accommodating, we asked for a lot and they delivered without fail.
    The food, what can we say about the Food! Not wanting a sit down meal we chose to have a paella (which was probably one of the best I’ve eaten!) followed later in the evening by marinated chicken with lots of salads in flatbreads, a combination that our guests are still talking about.
    Once again we want to say a huge thank you for making our day so special.
    Ellie & Dan Pearce
    We want to say a huge thank you for everything you did to help make our wedding as perfect as it was! You guys were all completely fab – from beginning to end your help was priceless! The hog roast was delicious and the pudding made with your own fruit was really great too. Thank you so much – Burnicombe Farm will always hold a special place in our hearts.
    Anna and Nathan Burgess
    I don’t think we have properly thanked you for the wonderful wedding day we had at your farm all thanks to you and your team. We really couldn’t think of anything else that would have made it any better. It was a truly perfect day and one which we will always treasure. We are so grateful to you for everything you did for us and all the help and support we received from you during the months before. With us being in Australia it was really reassuring having you at the end of skype and e-mails whenever we needed help. Thanks for your patience and understanding! Also thank you for being so welcoming to our families who were helping to organise the wedding with us being so far away. You made the whole experience friendly, warm and inclusive which led to us having the day we had dreamed of. The food was terrific Georgina – and lots of our guests have commented on how tasty it all was. Thank you so much for everything.
