Testimonials

 

Absolutely blown away by our venue and the staff when we got married here on Saturday.
Sue and her team just exceeded any expectation we had right from the word go. From the very first enquiry right up until the wedding day, there was not one single enquiry that was not met, there was nothing too big or small to be asked and we felt the most supported through the planning process.
The communication was incredible, with emails being responded too in such quick timing. The setting is absolutely mind-blowing, the scenery is stunning, the venue was beautifully presented at all times and we're so so grateful and lucky our date was available when we booked as no where can top this venue!
I cannot recommend this venue enough, and if you're date is free BOOK IT, as you won't be disappointed in the slightest.
Thank you so much Sue and team, we have memories that will last forever. Xx

Well we may have picked the only wet Saturday of May to get married but that didn't matter one bit as Hope Farm is beautiful no matter what! Sue was brilliant right from he start. Quick replies, a fab list of recommended suppliers and fantastic ideas. We cannot thank her enough! On the day Sue and her team were amazing, ensuring everything was perfect for us. In the evening as a break from the dance floor we all enjoyed sitting by the fire pits which was ready waiting for us after the meal. I could go on and on about how amazing Hope Farm, Sue and her team are the list is endless and I couldn't recommend enough!

We first visited the venue just under a year ago and were blown away by the gorgeous views, chilled atmosphere and the mix of contemporary/rustic charm. Luckily we were able to secure the last available date in 2023 and it certainly lived up to our expectations! We celebrated our wedding at Hope Farm last weekend and had the most fabulous day. Sue and the team were welcoming and attentive, whilst also giving you the space and freedom to decorate and enjoy the venue as you pleased throughout the weekend. The facilities are beautifully finished and we had countless compliments from guests who particularly enjoyed the different areas on the farm to explore in between the main events of the day and not just being stuck inside a stiff hotel/venue.The alpacas and baby goats were a massive hit with our guests - the perfect photobomb for our gorgeous pictures! A beautiful venue with treasured memories, we hope to one day come back as guests or maybe to celebrate an anniversary! Can't recommend it enough x

We will never forget Hope Farm for making us feel so special, and for making our wedding celebration extra special too. When we first met Sue, we knew that Hope Farm was the venue we wanted to get married in. The animals, the landscape and the warm welcome we received told us that we simply had to get married here. Sue and the team at Hope Farm covered every corner in helping us plan the day and made us feel like we had their absolute support all the way through whenever we had questions, throughout the planning stages, the night before and on the day. We feel so lucky to have come across Hope Farm for our wedding, and to have been able to have our wedding here. Our guests said it matched our personalities perfectly, as we personalised the day with help from the Hope Farm team. It even inspired our friends to make the move on their partners too due to the romantic and relaxed setting of the whole event! We will never forget Sue and all at Hope Farm, including the beautiful piglets who we had the pleasure of saying hello to. Thank you times infinity for making our day so special, Hope Farm will forever be a part of our life and was the perfect place to begin this next chapter of our lives.

Just wanted to drop a line and say a huge thank you for last Saturday – we all had an amazing time and James and Lauren and we all were so pleased with how it went - absolutely smashed all our expectations.  People commented on the lovely man directing the parking, the cute tuk tuk, the beautiful surroundings and how the move from one area to another was seamless.  Sue - you, Georgia and Julia were so lovely and helpful and made it all so easy and relaxed.  Many many thanks.

Thank you so much for helping us create out dream wedding at Hope Farm! We really had the most perfect day and we absolutely couldn't have done it without all your help in the lead up to and on the day! You had thought of everything and made the planning process as easy and calm as possible.  The venue was stunning and everyone has been telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

Amazing service. Amazing venue. Amazing Day. Where do I begin!  We came to Sue back in late 2019 as we found Hope Farm on the Dorset registered wedding venues.  The photos on the website looked great but, in all honesty, did not do it justice at all.  The place was so much better in person, even in the cold miserable winter months. We knew it was the right venue for us almost instantly when we got there and meeting Sue just solidified that fact.  Sue was kind, helpful, and was almost as excited about us getting married as we were.  So we booked it very soon afterwards. Then Covid happened!  Sue could not have been more accommodating.  She provided us with dates that we could do the following year and was so amazing throughout what was an incredibly stressful time for us (and undoubtedly them as well). Thankfully a year later, we were able to have the day that we wanted.  The venue looked incredible in the Summer.  The team at Hope Farm made the day go without a hitch.  The caterers that we ended up choosing (who were recommended by Sue) worked seamlessly with the Hope Farm team and the overall service of both teams was incredible.  All in all, it was the perfect day and it would not have been possible without Sue and the team.  All our guests said how good the day was and were raving about the venue for weeks after. I could not thank the team enough and told Sue that I would be happy to act as a reference call for any couples looking to get married in the future because more people need to know this place exists!

Thank you so much for all your help leading up to the wedding and for making everything run so smoothly on the day.  We have had so many compliments on the venue and we can't thank you enough for allowing us to use your venue.  Nothing was ever too much for you and everything was done to such a high standard.  Such a beautiful setting.  You are all so lovely and we had the best day ever and feel so lucky.

We will never be able to thank you enough for making our wedding day so perfect.  You went above and beyond our expectations in every way possible and Hope Farm was most definitely our dream venue.  So many people have told us what a beautiful setting it is!

- Camilla & John

Wow!  Families closer than ever.  Beauty at every turn.  Laughter every minute.  And our dream come true. Thank you for all the work it took to make Hope Farm the greatest venue in Dorset.  And of course for your guidance and support on the day.

Just want to add on from what Liam said.  Thank you for all your help and guidance over the last couple of years.  Without your time and efforts of your team the day wouldn't have run half as smoothly.  It's going to be a hard wedding to beat!! 

- Liam & Kate

A huge thank you to you all for providing the perfect venue for Olivia and Ciaran's wedding.  It was like a fairytale and you had it just right with absolutely everything, making it all truly memorable.  You made us all feel so welcome and relaxed at what could have been such a very stressed time.
