Villa Farm in Wigginton is a luxury holiday cottage and beautiful wedding venue set in 6 acres of private gardens, situated just 4 miles from York city centre.
We’ve had the pleasure of supplying DJ services here since 2012, doing many weddings, private parties and corporate events, providing music for evening disco’s and supplying music for the ceremonies held there.
The events we’ve done have been quite varied, from small gatherings to full capacity weddings. DJing sometimes alongside bands, including ceilidh’s and acoustic singers, or just DJing throughout the day and evening and providing microphone support for speeches.
We have done “festival” type weddings, as well as the more traditional kind, with many different styles of music covered, from chart and cheesy pop through to hip hop, house, metal, drum and bass and grime !
In previous years the weddings were held on the grounds in a marquee or PapaKata style teepee, however since the beginning of 2018 they now have the impressive York barn, a purpose built function room, which can hold up to 220 guests for an evening reception, with 150 seated for a meal. It really is a fantastic space and a great setting for such a special day. The marquee option is still available though if that is your preference.
Marriage ceremonies can take place outside at the newly built pergola in the garden, a short walk from the function room, which has a local power supply, so that ceremony music can be provided, or if the unpredictable British weather has it’s way, the ceremony can take place in the function room, as they are both licensed for marriages.
The cottages on site are to a very high standard and can accommodate over 100 guests. Some wedding parties make use of these and have them for a few days before and after their event and this really seems to be a great way of taking the stress out of the big day as the guests are always very relaxed when we get to meet them prior to their ceremony or evening party.
There are a vast amount of great quality caterers on the suppliers list that can provide a wide array of mouth watering food offerings. As well as this, there are bespoke pop-up cocktail bars, bands and singers, photographers, florists. make-up artists, venue stylists, magicians and even a creche company and perhaps most importantly, cake and confectionary suppliers.
The team at Villa Farm are very friendly, professional and a joy to work alongside and we look forward to continuing this relationship long into the future as their recommended supplier of DJ’s.
