Simple wedding in a field

If you want to keep things simple and want nothing more than a relaxed wedding in a field, why not soak up the atmosphere of a meadow wedding without any frills or fuss, and opt for a few basic amenities to keep your guests comfortable, then save your pennies for a good-old party! You can make a marquee look good without breaking the bank by adding home-made bunting and jam jars filled with wild flowers. Then delve into Rookery Meadow’s Barn of Curiosities to find quirky accessories to add a bit of personality.

Classic country wedding

The meadow is the perfect place to celebrate a country wedding. Think wedding wellies, hay bale-seating, chequered table cloths, and a cosy corner with blankets. A picnic makes an unusual, tasty wedding breakfast, and our giant kilner jars filled with Pimms create a welcome tipple that looks and tastes amazing served under an old oak tree. With the smell of freshly cut hay and the gentle sound of tractors harvesting the crops in the background, you will feel fully immersed in country life!
