The Family

Husband and wife team Darren and Helen first launched their wedding business back in 2015 with aspirations of providing a unique and rustic venue, with a personal approach.

As a working farm, Coton House Farm is a real family business with a far-reaching history that is evident from the moment you set foot on the site. Both Darren and Helen are the perfect hosts, welcoming couples and their families to share their farm with them and create memories that will last a lifetime.

The majority of staff who work at Coton House Farm have been there a long time and are treated as family, with everyone taking pride in helping to make the main event very special.

“We aim for the highest of standards, providing excellence, integrity, service, quality, honesty and value, charm and cheekiness. We hold these as our core values.”

The wedding venue prides itself on offering a simple pricing structure to allow couples to maintain control over the all-important budget, and offers venue hire, with food and beverage packages combined, to keep everything nice and simple.

“We know that weddings are expensive and things begin to add up very quickly when planning your day. Sometimes keeping to your budget, and still see your dreams come to life can be tricky, so we want to ensure that our couples know their costs upfront, as soon as they have chosen their wedding package.”

All couples-to-be are walked through the venue and planning process and the team discuss exactly how they would like the day to flow, so that as much of the pressure can be alleviated as possible, leaving the happy couple to concentrate on enjoying their day and making memories.

“So many wedding venues lose that personal touch when they become blueprints for each other. We saw an opportunity to offer something different at Coton House Farm – a far more individual experience, where our couples can bring their own personalities into the details. No two weddings are ever the same here, and that’s what we wanted to create.”

Darren Martin

“We love getting to know the couples we work with, understanding their personalities and helping to bring their ideas to life. We feel very honoured to be part of their wedding day”.
