…..thank you so much for such a wonderful day. We couldn’t have wished for anything more for our wedding.

Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding so special. It was such a great day and everything we wanted it to be. We loved getting married in the beautiful arbour surrounded by such amazing countryside and our friends loved coming to such a beautiful part of the country to celebrate with us on your lovely farm.

We had our wedding at Burnicombe Farm in early August and there really are no words to describe how unbelievably amazing the whole day was.

The location is absolutely breathtaking to say the least and the licensed wedding gazebo was just perfect for the surroundings, allowing us to keep the wedding simple and let the amazingly beautiful Devon scenery be the back drop! In short, the whole thing was simply beautiful.

Georgina and Trevelyan  have been amazing from start to finish, allowing us to descend on their farm to continually reacquaint ourselves with it all (living in London makes it easy to forget), make our plans and bring the vision in our heads to life. They have been fantastically accommodating, extremely hands on and supportive and i really can’t praise them both enough.

On top of the organising and all the support, on the day they were in charge of cooking the food.
As Georgina often caters at festivals, she made cooking food for 100 people look like a doddle and it was absolutely delicious. Every single mouthful!

I really can’t praise this team and venue highly enough. What you want on your wedding day is to relax, sink into the whole thing and enjoy every second. Georgina and Trevelyan were there in the background the whole time making sure the whole thing ran like clockwork so we didn’t have to worry about a thing.

There were so many extra tiny little details that they did for us which made the day so much more special and i could talk about it for hours but i hope i’ve said enough to convince you of their support, kindness and absolute warmth as people too!

We will never ever forget our wedding day and I know none of our guests will either, as every single person commented on the unique yet utter simplicity of the day, making it perfectly beautiful and i know that so much of that was because Georgina and Trevelyan made it possible for us.’

Alice and James

We chose Burnicombe Farm nearly two years earlier after extensive searching on the internet for our perfect venue. We were excited as soon as we saw the website, and one visit later we were booked! We wanted something unique, relaxed and licensed for civil ceremonies and with camping involved!

Even though when we first visited the venue it was on a windy, wet autumnal day and the Raj tents weren’t up we instantly fell in love with the location!

Georgina and Trevelyan were very helpful and accommodating from the beginning allowing us to be in constant touch discussing all the different details. Over the next (many) months we visited the farm on a number of occasions and worked with them to create the plan for our perfect day.

And it was! Despite the summer of rain we’ve just had and a rather wet day the day before the day of our wedding was dry and the site drained completely of any rain water leaving it completely dry and mud free underfoot! The log cabin was perfect for the bridal party to get ready in and well equipped and walking up from there to the wedding bower was pretty dramatic! The ceremony was lovely and personal in the bower, with those guests standing around the edge as involved as those sitting in.

The backdrop for photos was fantastic and our guests couldn’t believe the amazing scenery!

The reception was relaxed for us and our guests whilst Georgina and her team worked hard serving the food and drinks. All the staff were polite and couldn’t have done more to accommodate us and our guests. The canapés, starter platters and hog roast were delicious as was the pudding and cheese boards – this sustained the campers into the early hours!

Us and 50 of our friends camped at Burnicombe Farm which was fantastic, we had a bonfire which some stayed around til the early hours! Georgina and team provided an excellent (well needed) breakfast the next morning and it was a lovely way to finish our wedding weekend!

Overall we couldn’t have asked for anything more, Burnicombe Farm was exactly what we wanted and we have had nothing but fantastic compliments from all of our guests – including those with children who commented it was the most child friendly wedding they’d been to. This was mainly due to the brilliant children’s tent – well worth booking as it kept children of all ages entertained and happy for the whole reception, and so meant lots of happy parents!

 

Sheela – Mother of the Bride

Burnicombe Farm was the venue for our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding at the beginning of August and everything about it was exactly as they had wished and hoped for. Georgina could not have been more kind, she was keen for them to have exactly what they wanted, she has a friendly, positive and approachable manner which makes it easy to discuss all the arrangements in detail. Her food is delicious, the spit roast and accompanying salads with home made chutneys, meringues and fruit, and huge cheese boards were followed the next morning by a wonderful breakfast of sausages, bacon and eggs greatly appreciated by all the campers.  We could not have been more pleased with the wedding and would highly recommend Burnicombe Farm to anyone who wants a country wedding.

Helen –  Mother of the Bride

My daughter and son-in-law’s wedding was a truly terrific day and we couldn’t have asked for anything more from the Evans farmily and their team of staff who all worked so hard before, during and after the big day. The venue was perfect for us – relaxed and informal in beautiful wild countryside and the big Raj tents were spectacular. Georgina and Trevelyan thought of so many little details to make the day more special and to give my daughter exactly what she wanted. The food was fantastic and extremely good value with canapes to start, a hog roast with all the trimmings and buffet, a desert with fruit grown on their farm and all beautifully presented. Georgina is a superb cook and was careful to make sure the vegans and vegetarians were provided for with delicious alternatives.The next morning there was a big breakfast for the campers and again produce from the farm. Trevelyan was most helpful and managed everything superbly making sure it all ran smoothly. We have had nothing but positive feed back from all our guests who had a great time. Altogether it was a unique and unforgettable wedding which we will be talking about round the dinner table for years to come!

Thank you once again. Everything came together exactly as Rachael and Chris dreamed it would. Everyone was happy,laughing, chatting and smiling throughout the wedding day. I enjoyed the tipi dressing stage,seeing it grow into a bespoke organic setting,teeming with both families creative influences. The food was most excellent.

Dean and Frances Elson

We want to thank you both for making our day so memorable and special. All the hard work that you put in leading up to and on the day itself, is so appreciated. We’ve had so many compliments on our Devon themed wedding and how great the tipis looked, and the ‘wow factor’ that they gave, put a smile on our guests faces. The wedding breakfast that you served was sensational and easily the best meal we have ever had at any wedding, and wouldn’t be out of place in a top quality restaurant!

Martyn and Lee Sandford

Lee and I want to thank Georgina, Trevelyan and everyone involved in our wedding day. It was so very perfect. Everything went so very smoothly, with amazing food, stunning raj tent and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. We will be recommending Georgina and Trevelyan without any hesitation.

Julia and Martin Peters

We had the catering and reception venue in our garden for our wedding. The food was fantastic and the raj tent we used was perfect for the atmosphere we wanted to create. Georgina, Trevelyan and the team were superbly organised and great fun to work with and obviously really enjoy helping people put together memorable events. We would happily use them again for another family party and thoroughly recommend them!

Ellie and Toby Wilson

Ellie and I both want to say a big thank you to Burnicombe Farm!
We had the most fantastic day, the venue was beautiful, surrounded by amazing views. The tipis were just great. We wanted something a little out of the norm and boy did they deliver!
Despite choosing a cold day in October the tipis were cosy with the fire pits blazing.
Georgina and Trevelyan could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We asked for a lot and they delivered without fail.
The food, what can I say about the food! Not wanting a formal sit down meal we chose seafood paella (which was probably one of the best I’ve ever eaten!) with hunks of freshly baked bread and fresh leafy salads followed later in the evening by a Mediterranean buffet which our guests are still talking about. Once again I want to say a huge thank you for making our day so special.

We want to say a huge thank you for everything you did to help make our wedding as perfect as it was! You guys were all completely fab – from beginning to end your help was priceless! The hog roast was delicious and the pudding made with your own fruit was really great too. Thank you so much – Burnicombe Farm will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Anna and Nathan

I don’t think we have properly thanked you for the wonderful wedding day we had at your farm all thanks to you and your team. We really couldn’t think of anything else that would have made it any better. It was a truly perfect day and one which we will always treasure. We are so grateful to you for everything you did for us and all the help and support we received from you during the months before. With us being in Australia it was really reassuring having you at the end of Skype and e-mails whenever we needed help. Thanks for your patience and understanding! Also thank you for being so welcoming to our families who were helping to organise the wedding with us being so far away. You made the whole experience friendly, warm and inclusive which led to us having the day we had dreamed of. The food was terrific Georgina – and lots of our guests have commented on how tasty it all was. Thank you so much for everything.

Elizabeth & Rob Wood

Our wedding at Burnicombe Farm in August 2012 was truly delightful. Although originally from the UK we live in Berlin and relied pretty much on Google to find and arrange everything for our wedding. We were both very keen on an informal setting and having a campfire and we happened upon Burnicombe Farm quite quickly as there were so few venues that offered this, so on learning they had a date free in August we booked it without having even seen the venue.

We visited the venue a few months prior to the wedding and couldn’t have been happier with our choice. We were stunned by the rolling hills and gorgeous views and the farmhouse was delightful. The remote location did make the venue a little hard to locate (even with a sat nav) but it was also a wonderful challenge to find it and once there we knew we’d found somewhere really special – a complete antidote to our busy city lives.

Most of the planning was done via a string of emails with Georgina, and I felt like she was always very on top of arrangements, accommodating with any whims and really helpful with advice at all times.

The ceremony in the arbour was just perfect, the sun coming out on us exactly as we exchanged rings. Guests sat around on haystacks and benches and there were kids of all ages playing about so we managed to completely escape the formal feel and relax. We decorated the arbour ourselves with lilies to go with our 1920s theme and had music from an old portable gramophone and it was beautiful.

The guests enjoyed delicious homemade lemonade and cream teas made by Georgina and then went on to play games we’d set up in the adjoining field. We had complete freedom to organise it as we wanted and what was really good was the amazing calmness and flexibility of Georgina and Trevelyan as we had to shift about some of our plans in the day to fit a very full itinerary.

We had over 25 young children guests and they all seem to have had a great day partaking in the races and playing in the kids tent and with extra games we’d set up. They all loved the kids boxes of food provided by Georgina and the staff were really helpful in making the day particularly friendly for all of us with young children (we have a 1 year old daughter ourselves!).

As expected my favourite part was the evening. We had a big swing band and the Raj tent was accommodating enough for over 120 guests to dance, eat cake and enjoy the cheeseboard and chat by the bar, all in one place which was great. Ending it off with acoustic music by friends round the campfire made a dream come true.

The food was delicious, the atmosphere was magical and the feedback we had from everyone about the day was all wonderful. Just wish we could do it all again.
