Folly Farm Centre is a magical wedding venue for all seasons and we are proud to welcome same-sex marriage couples.
With woodland bluebells and daffodils amongst the orchards in spring, wildflower meadows in summer, apple trees and golden leaves in autumn and wood smoke and dramatic skies in winter - Folly Farm’s small, friendly team can help tailor your day to be one to remember.
Folly Farm Centre is an award-winning, environmentally sustainable wedding venue located in the heart of a 250-acre nature reserve in the Chew Valley (just 10 miles from Bath and Bristol). Folly Farm provides an inspirational setting for weddings and can accommodate 100 guests for the ceremony, 150 for the evening and 45 guests in overnight accommodation , as well as an option for camping.
With a full license for civil ceremonies and a variety of function rooms, from the cosy 18th-century Old Dairy, to the large oak-beamed Oak Room and a glass room, wonderful for summer weddings, there is a ceremony room to suit everyone. Couples may even choose to make the most of the outdoor space with a blessing under the Folly Oak, or in the apple orchard.
The stunning rural location means delicious, local produce is in abundance. Food is fresh and seasonal and often picked from the kitchen garden. If you choose to use Folly Farm’s caterers, they can expertly tailor menus to meet a variety of budgets and tastes, from a three course meal to a hog roast and everything in-between.
When you hire Folly Farm Centre for your wedding, you get exclusive use of the venue from 5pm on the Friday to 11am on the Sunday, meaning you can enjoy not just your wedding day - but a wedding weekend surrounded by the people that mean the most. Enjoy a family meal the night before the wedding in the Old Dairy restaurant or perhaps a BBQ on the lawn, before waking up to birdsong on your big day.
What's more, by getting married at Folly Farm Centre, you will be helping local wildlife because all profits from the Centre are gift-aided to Avon Wildlife Trust, to protect wildlife and inspire people about nature. As a thank you, all wedding couples will receive a one year free membership of the Avon Wildlife Trust after their big day.
