img_2045Thank you so much for everything you have done for us and our families and friends.  It has been the wedding weekend of our dreams!  You have the most amazing place here, it has been a total joy to spend time here, we cannot imagine saying our vows and getting married anywhere else.  The bell tents are utterly gorgeous and so comfortable.  But more than this, more than the tents, the amazing views and the great organisation – the warmth of you both and the extraordinary lengths you went to to ensure our day was magical was above and beyond.  You are wonderful people and we are so thankful for everything.

All our love Rachael and Macca

What a wonderful wedding celebration we had.  It was fun from the arrival of Kate and Suzanne on a tandem to the lighting of the fire pit at the end of a truly lovely day.  Fiona and her team are amazing, ever present to help and able to keep the fun going all the time… I never saw them without smiles on their faces throughout the 12 hours.  That takes some doing !  Do have your celebrations at GreenAcres, you won’t be disappointed.

imageFiona and Gerry could not have made our day more wonderful.  We had been let down at another venue so were feeling pretty annoyed and desperate about the whole thing and GreenAcres totally came to our rescue helping us both mentally and physically!    They made our wedding day so special with their cheerful and positive approach – nothing was too much for them.  The venue is amazing with the most gorgeous views all round !  So beautiful – and we loved the cows and calves !  Sitting around the firepit later on was the icing on the cake.
Thank you so much GreenAcres !

Helen Circus Revels 014

 

 

“I was involved with the ‘Circus Revels’ event which Fiona Cathcart organised for our parish. Her organisation and co-operation with others involved was exemplary. I would not hesitate to invite her to spearhead another such event.”

“We held our wedding reception at Ridge Farm on the 25th May 2013. We chose to do so because we didn’t want a standard reception – we wanted a venue that would allow our guests, and us, to really relax and enjoy the day. And that’s what we got; a wonderful, two day party for 200 guests, many of whom said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to.  The location is lovely, with wonderful views and plenty of space, even for the most ambitious reception (and ours was  ambitious). Fiona and Gerry organised the lot, from the marquee to the caterers to the posh loos and it all ran like clockwork.”

The bride and groom celebrate their wedding

“Ridge Farm was a dream wedding location! We all gathered around under the oak tree for the blessing which was incredibly special, surrounded by beautiful green fields and trees as far as the eye can see. All our guests were blown away by its beauty.

Fiona and Gerry organised everything so well, worked so hard and were always so enthusiastic and easy to deal with. They met all our requests without a hitch, from marquees to child entertainers, from hog roasts to our music stage. Thank you both so much for the day and the memories!”

“I had my 80th birthday at Ridge Farm in their very remarkable and cosy barn. It was absolutely marvellous, what an atmosphere! We seated 40 for lunch with drinks out in the quirky garden beforehand. Fiona and Gerry organised everything for us including all of the delicious food and friendly and helpful waitresses. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend GreenAcre Events to anyone looking for a more unconventional celebration.”

“We had our wedding reception in Fiona and Gerry’s extremely unusual barn. We love the unconventional and this is certainly what we got! We had 40 for lunch and then the barn was cleared for a fantastic party in the evening for 100 guests. The food was fab, the music was fab and the venue was fab ! Thank you so much GreenAcre Events.”
