A beautifully restored 16th century farm house set in acres of stunning farmland and orchards near to the historic city of Bath and Frome, this is a truly magical place to tie the knot.

Run by the fabulous Jess and her husband, Court Farm really is a wonderful venue for a romantic country wedding, with large barns to accommodate wedding banquets and late night dancing, flower meadows (for the perfect wedding snaps) and stylish on site accommodation for the bridal party to be pampered before the day.

We had the absolute pleasure of catering our first post-Covid wedding here a few weeks back and it was such a treat.

I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed catering this intimate wedding after what has been a strange and at times challenging past 16 months!

The bride and groom were the most lovely couple who had chanced upon our Creative Home Dining delivery meals a year ago when it was bought for them by the mother of the bride to mark their “would have been” wedding day last year. I felt honoured to be able to cook for them on their special day a year later.

Dear Rose,
We had a wonderful day, the food was so yummy! We were thrilled with the whole menu! Several people said it was the best wedding food they’d ever had, and we agree. And Katie’s grandparents loved the Greek theme, her granddad is still talking about the lamb kleftiko!
