Just one mile south of Biggleswade, Edworth Manor is a working farm that one family has run for more than 200 years. Nearlyweds can expect personal service and practical experience from the team, who will help guide pairs through the planning process. Guests get a glimpse of farm life as they travel up the drive past grass meadows and tractors before reaching the venue.
Couples often comment on how peaceful and tucked away the setting is. The meadow offers a perfect space for photos thanks to the rural backdrop; couples are often photographed underneath the trees or in front of the traditional timber-clad barns. The venue doesn’t have a ceremony license, but the 12th-century church is available for blessings with permission of the Churches Conservation Trust. Celebrant-led ceremonies occur in the 18th-century barn at Edworth Manor, a genuinely rustic space that’s one of the largest in the area with plenty of historic character. Guests are taken back by the oak timbers and attractive alcoves, which offer a fantastic canvas for couples to personalise as little or as much as they like.
The barn is only available for a limited number of occasions during the summer months each year. Available for exclusive use only and on a dry-hire basis, lovebirds are given access well ahead of the day to style the space as they wish. The recently restored The Old Granary is connected to the main barn, perfect for private dining receptions for up to 25 people. The space is available for booking all year round and can also be used for celebrant-led ceremonies with 40 loved ones or as a place for the bridal party to get ready. Both barns are served by a connected area for use by external caterers. Double doors open out of the timber-clad barn onto a mown grass meadow, which couples can style for welcome drinks, garden games and outdoor catering.
