The Clophill Centre - Natural Wedding Venue
Situated just outside the picturesque village of Clophill only an hour due North of Central London, the Clophill Centre was originally a fruit farm and has now become a Centre for complementary medicine, spiritual retreats and more, where our focus is to work with nature to co-create a harmonious and sustainable future with a constantly evolving programme of workshops and activities.
We have a wide variety of spaces ranging from open meadows to the permaculture garden, woodland, labyrinth, Mongolian Ger, underground meditation chamber and more.
Though our focus is on healing and spiritual retreats, we also see the farm as a place of celebration and welcome a few couples each year who share our vision to come and hold their wedding reception here in the beautiful and tranquil setting of the Centre. We do like to get involved in order to ensure that you have the best possible day and we're happy to go the extra mile to ensure everything is as good as it can be. We also encourage you to invite your friends to come and help prepare the venue in the days running up to the event.
Although we are not licensed to cater for the legal side of your wedding, we are well provided to offer you a natural setting to consummate your union.
"It was such a wonderful day, I don't think it could have gone any better! Your site is a fantastic wedding reception venue and you are so welcoming and helpful!
Thank you so much for having us." Heather
"We really couldn’t have dreamed of a better place for our festival wedding. We had enough space for a colourful big top tent, circus skills, bubbles and plenty of running around. The woodland walk up to the ceremony was one of the most magical moments in my life and to see that clearing full of sunny, smiley friends and family was incredible. The added bonus of having lots of space for people to camp in, really added the finishing touch. Thanks to Richard for all your help and flexibility before and during our wonderful weekend. Happy Earth dancing!" Abbi and Kemal
"We had the best time and so much of that is because of you and the beautiful Clophill Centre, we are so, so grateful to you for letting it happen there and for all your help in making / letting us have it just how we wanted. It was just brilliant and your relaxed, easygoing helpfulness was just perfect. And most importantly, everyone LOVED the fire!!!" Emily and Dean
