Make it yours

We help you plan, build and run your bespoke outdoor wedding using our beautiful blank canvas with its private lake, 400 -year-old oak trees and acres of meadow land as the perfect backdrop. With three day’s hire and freedom to choose your suppliers, you have the chance to really make the venue yours. Find out more about Rookery Meadow weddings .

Rookery Meadow weddings are truly one of a kind. Unlike other venues there’s no format for you to follow. We know you don’t want your special day to be like anyone else’s, you want it to be as unique and individual as you are. Rookery Meadow gives you the freedom to do things your way. You will not be restricted by packages and lists that you have to choose from, instead you have control over everything including your style of marquee or tipi, food and entertainment – and there’s no corkage! We also ensure you have all the support you need, from sourcing quotes to creating a day plan and managing your event on the big day, all for one fixed price.

At Rookery Meadow we give you the chance to make the meadow match your style and meet your needs. We believe you shouldn’t have to compromise on the things you want, so rather than tell you what you can and can’t have, we ask “what do you want?” and then we help you make it happen!

Our ethos is to work with you to create the style of wedding that YOU want, whether that be a festival wedding in tipis, or a classic white wedding in a marquee. You can even choose where to locate your marquee or tipi – by the lake front or between the oak trees in the meadow.

You may want to hold your ceremony under the oak trees, have a hand fasting ceremony or say your vows by the lake. Rather than a sit down meal you may want a table feast or festival catering vans; the choice really is yours.

Planning an outdoor wedding takes a little thought so once you have had a browse through the website to gain some inspiration, we would love to welcome you for a visit to find out more about the choices you have and how to work within your budget. Once you’re ready get in touch to arrange a visit.

*Allow 1-2 hours for your visit so we have plenty of time to show you round and discuss your ideas. Our hire charge includes our support to research and contact suppliers, as well as plenty of inspiration, so if you aren’t quite sure what you want, we can work with you to find it!

Our helping hands

We know from experience that planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort. We also know that whilst some people thrive on this, others like some help and support, or may simply just not have the time to do it all themselves. We do as much or as little as you like to help you – you choose!

We can research and organise everything from toilets to catering, camping and entertainment. We will do our best to hunt out the things you’ve always dreamed of but don’t know how to find. We can also recommend some lovely local suppliers.

Whether you have a strong vision of what you want and are keen to be hands on in order to achieve it, or are lost at where to start, we have lots of ideas, and some helpful consultation tools to help you achieve exactly what you want.
