River Cottage HQ

The feel

Celebrate the best day of your life at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage HQ, based on the Devon/Dorset border in 60 acres of organic farmland, just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Jurassic Coast.

Getting married at River Cottage is a unique experience where the food takes centre stage. Couples design their wedding menu from scratch with the talented River Cottage chefs and kitchen team, wowing guests with the finest local and seasonal ingredients from the West Country, as well produce grown and reared on the organic farm itself.

Fully licensed to conduct civil ceremonies and partnerships, couples can get hitched in the stunning walled kitchen garden with a backdrop of rolling hills or in the beautifully refurbished threshing barn.

The River Cottage vegetable garden is a gorgeous, tranquil environment for a blessing. Guests sit on benches and straw bales watching you walk through the organic veggies for your ceremony underneath a hazel arch woven in climbing sweet peas.

The threshing barn is a glorious space at any time of the year. Your guests are seated on two long banquet tables fit for the splendid feast they will undoubtedly devour. The barn can seat up to 70 with a top table and during the summer months a further 30 can dine on the adjoining decking area.

In the evening you can total 120 so there is plenty of room to dance the night away.

Now included in the facility fee is the exclusive use of our recently refurbished farmhouse

accommodation on the night of your wedding on a bed and breakfast basis. A chance to stay in our luxurious master room with en-suite alongside up to four other guests who can stay in our stylish twin and double bedroom with a shared bathroom.

Our in-house wedding coordinator will be on hand right from the planning stages to being there on the day alongside a dedicated team of chefs and River Cottage staff to ensure your plans run smoothly.
