When it comes to wedding venues, Northampton has lots to offer. Whether you prefer an indoor or outdoor setting for your big day, you will be able to find one to suit your needs and tastes. However, if there is one venue in the region that is on many couples’ wish list, it has to be Crockwell Farm.
As one of the most desirable and highly sought-after wedding venues in Northampton, Crockwell Farm has been awarded “Top 100” status by the prestigious Condé Nast Brides magazine, and for good reason! Beyond picture-perfect, our farm has everything you could ever need to host and celebrate one of the most precious and magical moments of your life.
As proof, here are the top reasons why Crockwell Farm is one of the most popular wedding venues, not just in Northamptonshire but in the whole of the UK.
You will have a stunning backdrop for your wedding
No matter what the season, Crockwell Farm is simply stunning. Surrounded by lush countryside and a wide array of flora and fauna, Crockwell can offer the perfect backdrop for your wedding. Our venue boasts gorgeous natural scenery and of course lots of natural lighting that will certainly take your wedding photos to the next level.
If you have been dreaming of arranging a farm or barn wedding – and this has become increasingly popular over the last few years – Crockwell Farm can make your dream a reality. For example, you will be able to take advantage of the various agricultural backdrops our farm has to offer, including tractors, hay bales, sheep and horses, as well as the colourful shipping containers that you’ll find dotted around the place.
You can personalise the venue to your heart’s content
While Crockwell Farm is one of the most naturally beautiful wedding venues in Northampton, and as such requires minimal decoration, you will still have the freedom to add personal touches to truly make the place your own. In fact, we encourage you to decorate the venue according to your preferences or chosen wedding theme as this will then reflect your individuality.
If you need help sprucing the place up or finding supplies, our team of experienced wedding planners will be more than happy to offer you the assistance you require. With the help of our expertise, you will have a wedding day that you will never forget!
You can enjoy greater flexibility
Unlike other locations, when it comes to providing the perfect venue to host your wedding, Crockwell Farm offers greater flexibility. With both indoor and outdoor settings available, you have more options to choose from. Whether you are planning an intimate occasion or a large celebration, Crockwell Farm can fulfil your every need.
a. The Vaulted Barn
Featuring high ceilings, window alcoves and gorgeous oak beams, the Vaulted Barn is an excellent indoor setting for your wedding, especially during the winter months. It can accommodate up to 86 people.
b. The Orchard Pavilion
If you would prefer an outdoor wedding, we highly recommend the Orchard Pavilion. It can seat up to 200 people, which makes it an excellent option if you are inviting a lot of guests.
c. The Main Marquee
The Main Marquee is an indoor venue that can accommodate up to 200 people. Similar to the Orchard Pavilion, it is a perfect space for large celebrations. Overlooking the picturesque South Northamptonshire countryside, it makes for a gorgeous wedding venue regardless of the season.
At Crockwell Farm, we are prepared for any eventuality. You can count on us to have a backup plan in place just in case the weather forgets to cooperate. For instance, if a sudden downpour ruins your plan to have the wedding ceremony in the Orchard Pavilion, there would be no need to worry because we can quickly set up the Main Marquee or the Vaulted Barn to ensure that the ceremony goes ahead as planned.
You can have a wedding “weekend”
Instead of simply having a wedding “day”, why not make your celebrations last the whole weekend? At Crockwell Farm, we offer exclusive use of our facilities for three days. With the place all yours for the entire weekend, there will be lots of time to make all the necessary preparations to ensure that everything goes without a hitch. This is something not readily available at other wedding venues in Northampton.
You will also have time to rest and take in the beautiful surroundings before and after you tie the knot. We all recognise that planning and hosting a wedding can be stressful at times, so the opportunity to enjoy some much-needed rest and recreation at Crockwell Farm will help ensure you look refreshed and vibrant throughout your celebrations.
You can take advantage of our wedding expertise
We have been hosting weddings at Crockwell Farm since 2002 so we have a wealth of knowledge and experience. This enables us to help and guide couples so they can just completely relax and enjoy their dream wedding day.
If you book Crockwell Farm for your wedding venue, you will be able to take advantage of our team’s expertise. Because we want you and your guests to have a memorable experience, you can count on us to be there for you from Day 1, right up to the big day itself. We will never leave your wedding to chance and, as a result, you can expect the entire Crockwell family to go the extra mile to deliver your dream celebration.
You can help save the environment
Crockwell Farm is more than just a wedding venue, it is also a working farm that is committed to preserving the surrounding countryside. For this reason, we make a concerted effort to minimise our impact on the local environment as far as is possible.
Throughout the years, we have made several improvements to our facilities to reduce our carbon footprint and make Crockwell Farm a “greener” wedding venue. These include:
- A 50-kilowatt solar panel system that provides for our primary energy needs.
- A biomass boiler that provides heating for the farm.
- Energy-saving light bulbs that help minimise our energy consumption.
- A camping area for wedding guests to help them save on money and petrol.
- The use of local suppliers and tradespeople wherever possible.
