There are many reasons why I find Wick Farm to be a dream wedding venue. From its picturesque surroundings to the variety of spaces available for ceremonies and receptions, it offers a unique and memorable experience for couples and their guests. Here are a few features that make Wick Farm stand out:

These outdoor locations feature stunning views, providing a picturesque backdrop for your wedding photos.
Fairy Lit Archways and Hay Barn for Perfect Photos
As a Wiltshire wedding photographer, I am always on the lookout for unique, captivating spots for photos. Wick Farm has three fairy lit archways in the entrance of the gardens, perfect for creating a romantic and enchanting atmosphere. And let's not forget the beautiful ancient hay barn – an excellent place for wet weather photos and summer ceremonies.
Fun and Entertainment Galore
At Wick Farm, there's plenty of room for fun and entertainment. The mezzanine level is perfect for photo booths, casino tables, or children's entertainments, ensuring that your guests have a memorable and enjoyable experience.
The Secret Bride's Room and Marquee Area
For those quiet moments before the ceremony, the bride and her bridesmaids can retreat to a beautiful, peaceful secret room upstairs. Wick Farm also offers a heated marquee area for rainy days in the colder months or additional shade during hot summer days.
