When the pandemic hit last year, it was heartbreaking to watch couples have to cancel their plans for the amazing weddings they had dreamt of. We realised that so many couples would struggle to find a venue for weddings from 2021 onwards due to so many weddings being rolled into the next year. My parents have lived and farmed at Hoopers Farm for over 20 years and I have always wanted to get married there myself, so it seemed obvious to open up the farm for couples to have their dream day.
My parents and I are passionate about preserving the planet for the next generation, so we have a focus on sustainability, both in their farming and also when it comes to weddings. We have recommended suppliers who share this mindset; from local caterers who reduce food waste to marquee companies who offset their carbon footprint, we can support couples to make eco-friendly decisions. Couples can also choose to serve our home-grown, grass-fed beef or lamb at their wedding, ensuring food miles are kept to a minimum.
Meadow Weddings is a blank canvas for couples; our gorgeous field overlooks the Eden Valley and so provides a stunning backdrop for events. Couples are free to choose their own suppliers or can rely on us for planning support. We have plenty of space for camping/glamping so couples can extend their “big day” to a “big weekend” of festivities with family and friends.
