Less than a week to go.. A few final things to say!

Hello everyone! With just 5 days until our big day, we thought we’d write one final update ahead of the event …

First of all, we might be a little stressed at the moment, but we’re also soo excited. We can’t wait to see everyone at the weekend. Thanks so much to those who’ve been in touch to offer support and those who’ve already had a look at our giftlist as well! Everyone is awesome. OK then, a few things to mention as said!


Campers and Glampers! Or those planning to? Read this!

Well – I hope if you’re planning to Glamp or Camp, you’ve already booked it! Especially the glampers! There’s really not long to go now!! You might be able to get a booking confirmed TODAY but act fast if this applies to anyone?

1But to everyone who is planning to camp or glamp, we just want to let you know about arrival times.

People are very welcome to arrive and set up on SATURDAY, From 10:30, to set up their tents if camping, or to ‘check in’ to their bell tents if glamping ! The ceremony is at 13:00.  We’ll have some welcome drinks from 12:00, so if you can set up by then, you get to take that in. Seating for the ceremony is at 12:45 sharp, so don’t be late! If you’re glamping, check in is easy, find tent, put stuff in tent. Come have a drink! If camping though, this is the best time to get your tents set up (Unless you want to do it during the reception?!?) so get it sorted, so you can relax :-)If it helps, we don’t mind if people who have booked in turn up Friday evening! From 20:00. I can’t promise you’ll see much of us at all, but it the bell tents are there, the pitches are open, and if this works better for you – it’s fine by us! Hate to say though, our bar won’t be open, so bring a can or two if you like… Oh, and you must must must let us know if you plan to do this! Send dave an email… dave@davehayward.co.uk. Thanks!

Bar? That brings us on nicely to..


The Bar and our BYOB policy!

Just so you know, we’ve got good Beer! And mixers, and softs. You might have seen our running order, it drops the hint that for a period, there’ll be free pour beer! Awesome! As well as for the meal, for our ‘Hoppy Hour’ everything will be free! Excellent. Outside of those hours, we’ll be running a cash bar. Don’t worry. It’s heavily subsidised by us and super cheap… Here’s an idea of how cheap:

09f003faa862b155bb33cd10f45861b3Beer £2/pint, £1/half.

Shots £1/each.

Wine £2/ large glass.

Softs £0.30 each…


Why do we tell you this? Well – we know a bunch of people will want to bring their own booze, either for consumption once our bar has to unfortunately close at 01:00, or because they just have a favourite tipple. That’s fine from 21:00 on Saturday, and all day Sunday, but our cash bar has great beer, as well as Gin, Whiskey, cider, and soft drinks – and if the Beer isn’t drunk, it gets poured down the drains at the end of the weekend. That’d be a shame…

The other reason we bring it up, is to remind you – cash means cash! Cash is king! Our bar in the middle of a field in the middle of a farm, doesn’t take credit cards!!! So please bring some money along! I know, so 20th Century…

Glampers! Hello again! Will you have a bed to sleep in?

973a9776a98e2b527d8abb30c1b10169-bell-tent-glampingOne thing we’re terrified of is someone having booked Glamping, and end up finding out they’ve not a bed to sleep in within the tent. Paranoid? Probably.. But as a note: The £140 fee covers setup and take down of your tent, which is available Saturday and Sunday, and Friday by prior request.

Barrie who runs the tents charges £20 extra for an airbed, and £20 extra again for the bedding. If you’ve not paid either of those, you won’t get them. Of course – bring your own if you like, you can park a few meters from the tents, but if you’ve not planned for this – please now do! Contact dave if any questions…

You can also contact Barrie directly on 07767347050 if you want to add something in to an existing order.


But we’re certain this is just Dave being paranoid and that this is all catered for!!




See you on Saturday

cheers-beer-yogaThat’s it! We’re super excited. See you on Saturday!!!!!





All the best,
Dave and Naomi xxx
