Getting Married at Cogges

It is important to us that your wedding is as individual as you are - the choices of catering, furniture or decoration are yours to make. We have contacts with many local suppliers who can help you plan your wedding as you want it. However, you have the freedom to work with any supplier, caterer or entertainer you choose.

The stunning and spacious Wheat Barn can seat up to 200 guests, with refurbished stone floor, and portable heating is included in the cost of hire.
The more intimate and adjacent Barley Barn can seat about 60 guests or is an ideal choice to use as a dance or ceremony area.
Each barn can be hired separately, or as a combined hire.

In addition to any indoor space you hire, you and your guests can use our outdoor space to wander and enjoy. Cogges has many perfect locations for your wedding photographs, such as the manor house lawn, the walled garden or the orchard and you can even include the farm animals in your photos.

Cogges farm and grounds is open to the public until 5pm, after which time you will have exclusive use of the site. The barn you hire will be closed to the public throughout your booking.

We have a full alcohol and music licence. We ask that you show due consideration for our neighbours at all times and that music ends at 11pm. The site must be clear by midnight.

If you have any questions or to arrange a visit to see the barns and the site please contact Laura Dean on or call the office on 01993 772602.

"Cogges Manor Farm was the perfect wedding venue for us. The setting is beautiful and the hosts were so accommodating. We really could make the place just as we wanted it for our special day. It was so much fun decorating the barns and having the animals around was brilliant. Jonathan the goat was very photogenic and an indispensable addition to the day.

We had so many compliments about the wedding, all the guests loved the venue and some were saying it was the best wedding they had been to. The in laws keep going back to Cogges to relive the day. We can’t thank Colin and Laura enough!"

"Annie and I were convinced from the moment that we first went to Cogges that it was going to be the perfect venue for our wedding, in fact we committed from our side immediately despite the fact that the venue didn't, at that time, have approval to hold ceremonies! Our leap of faith in Colin and the team was fully justified and in the end everything came together as we had envisaged. The day was perfect. The Cogges team was exceptional in every respect and nothing was too much trouble. We had the most fantastic wedding and even the sun obliged to shine all day. Ours was the first wedding to ever be held at Cogges, a truly remarkable and memorable experience... so much so that many friends and family who attended said that it was the best and most relaxed wedding experience that they had ever been to.

Recommended? You bet."
