Green Acre Events - Festival Weddings
We specialise in the more alternative and unconventional and give a real Bohemian and festival flavour to all of our events. We love colour and will bring a real sense of uniqueness and humour to your occasion. We are also very open to ideas and always do our utmost to fulfil any of your wishes.
We thrive on the unconventional wedding........
Festival, themed, bohemian, country, alternative, picnic or just plain mad – this is our style.
We’re situated in a sheltered stunning valley near the beautiful thatched village of Broadhembury in the Blackdown Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our farm is a member of the Environmentally Sensitive Area scheme, with ponds, woodland, hedgerows and meadow areas maintained for wildlife.
Our suckler herd of Aberdeen Angus and Red Ruby cows and calves will be your only spectators.
Celebrate in our lovely paddock on our farm in Devon surrounded by woodland and magnificent single oaks which can be highlighted wonderfully with spotlights.
We cater for all budgets, start with the hire of the field and then build your wedding from there. We can organise everything you need. The field is yours for setting up for the whole week; guests can make the most of it and camp from the Friday evening until the Monday morning. We also have our own beautifully furnished bell tents for you or your guests.
You can choose from a whole range of marquees including all sizes of tipis, yurts, Indian style or traditional white which we can dress up with our extensive range of textiles, decorations, bunting and flags.
We support local caterers and all of our food is sourced from local and free range producers. Guests love our local ales and beers provided by Otter Breweries, just 3 miles from us.
Do you want a band, DJ, a ceilidh? We can help you to find the perfect entertainment. Jugglers, clowns, story tellers, children’s craft areas, poi, drummers, musicians, whatever you want, we can get it! You can play your music as late as you like, but it will have to be turned down at 1am to stop the cows getting grumpy! You and your runny mascara will not be horribly exposed at midnight with the sudden silence and bright light experience!
We also run amazing Hen Glamping weekends with wonderful food and champagne, bell tents, a fully furnished cabin kitchen, workshops, woodland bushcraft etc etc etc to offer. See our separate listing on this site, or look at our website.
