The Setting

Escheat Farm is a unique, exclusive country garden wedding venue.

Situated a mile outside the quaint village of Lidlington, Escheat Farm occupies 2.5 acres of the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside. The orchard, abundant with blossom in Spring, fruit in Summer and a natural tree-lined aisle, is perfect for a blessing, celebrant or humanist ceremony.

The landscaped gardens are brimming with flowers, a huge variety of trees, and a large natural pond with striking blue bridge and island. The tree-lined paddock and meadow fields are the perfect space for you to customise your special day and host your choice of canvas or marquee.

Whilst Escheat Farm sits in a rural location they have fantastic transport links by road, rail and air and are accessible within 60-90 minutes from London, Oxford, Cambridge and Birmingham. Nearby there is a wider variety of accommodation for you and your guests.

The Vibe

Escheat Farm lends itself naturally to a romantic vintage or rustic chic wedding, but with a combination of both formal landscaped areas and blank-canvas fields can provide the backdrop the any style of outdoor wedding – your imagination is the only limitation!

The orchard twinkles with fairy lights strung through the trees and looks even more stunning with paper lanterns or jars of flowers hung from the branches. The gardens provide an abundant variety of unique and interesting spots ideal for photographs.

Escheat Farm is an outdoor venue so you’ll need a canvas, but whether you dream of a tipi, tent or marquee you have complete flexibility to choose – your day, your way. They know that planning the big day will be an exciting challenge for some but for others might be a little daunting, that’s why they offer a number of packages. Whether you simply wish to hire the grounds and do the rest yourself, or prefer their set package inclusive of canvas, tables, chairs and other essentials, there’s always the option to customise the support they give you.

As a minimum they’ll make sure you know the all important components needed for a garden wedding and if you want their help with sourcing suppliers, design & d├ęcor concepts or hire of finishing touches they can do that too.

They take a limited number of wedding bookings each year to ensure they have the time to support you in the imagination and creation of your big day.
