Intimate weddings with style and character for 15-30 guests
Your wedding day is something you will look back on and cherish for the rest of your lives, and we want to help you have the wedding of your dreams, even in these strange times.
This is why we have created The Piglet package, a bespoke and truly special day just for you and Covid safe for up to 15 guests. And when the restrictions are eased, your party can be increased to allow more friends and family to share your special day.
The Piglet Package - small and splendid celebrations for 15 - 30 guests
If you would like an intimate wedding with your nearest and dearest our The Piglet package is for you - you do not have to put your wedding plans on hold just because of Covid.
Enjoy a truly relaxed and unique setting for your memorable day and say "I do" in the famous River Cottage garden or any idyllic spot of your choosing on our 100-acre farm. The beautiful 17th threshing barn, charming yurt and picturesque garden are yours to enjoy from midday to midnight on the day of your wedding and all spaces can comfortably accommodate 15 guests and allow ample space for social distancing.
Superb food is at the core of what we do and love and a three-course seasonal feast and canapés are included as part of the package with the option of adding courses or extras to make it even more special. In the run up to your wedding, you can meet with our chefs and with their help, you will design your menu from scratch using the finest homegrown, local and seasonal ingredients.
We appreciate that planning a wedding in these difficult times may present a challenge, which is why The Piglet package has been designed to eliminate all stress and complications. The straight-forward pricing structure guarantees you a truly special day which is great value and still enables you to make the day bespoke to you. And if restrictions are eased before your special day, we can increase the party to up to 30 guests.
