We pride ourselves in being able to organise every detail of your day for you, or if you prefer, we can leave it entirely down to you.
If you would like something a little more lavish, then have a look at some of our upgrade menu options. If you prefer something a little more special, then we can cater to your exact requirements, but there may be an extra charge.
Arrival One of our members of staff will be waiting to receive the newly-weds and congratulate you both with a glass of bubbly. Weather permitting, this can be on our grand lawn or as you enter Elm Farm Country House.
Greeting Your co-ordinator introduces the Wedding Party into the room. The traditional order is: Bride's Parents, Groom’s Parents, Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, Maid of Honour, Best Man, Flower Girl, Ring Bearer and, lastly, the Newly-Weds. If you like, we can arrange a toastmaster for you to ensure the day runs smoothly or, if you prefer a more relaxed approach, then please ask your co-ordinator who will be pleased to take up the role for you.
Speeches Before the meal, the Best Man can toast the happy couple. If you are having more than three or four speeches it may be more entertaining for your guests to have them in-between courses or to do them all together after your meal.
Mingle After dinner, it is your time to move into the gardens and mingle before your evening guests start to arrive. Make the most of the time to relax a little and speak to those rarely-seen relatives. You may also want to use this time to change into something more comfortable and freshen up, or a chance for some photographs.
Evening You will be invited to your newly prepared room, receive your evening guests, have your first dance as husband and wife, then both sets of parents and, finally, all your remaining guests as the party gets underway. For your evening guests, we can arrange food or snacks to your requirements; be it buffet or banquet we have all the options for you - just speak to your co-ordinator.
Here at Elm Farm Country House every aspect of your special day can be arranged exactly how you want it "Your Wedding Your Way" We pride ourselves in being able to organise every detail of your day for you, or if you prefer, we can leave it entirely down to you.
