Al Ru Farm absolutely exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The cocktail food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect. We loved the open fire and the flexibility in regards to weather potentially changing the location of our ceremony. We selected our wedding date around the garden in spring and were absolutely amazed at how spectacular the garden looked with the trees in blossom and bulbs flowering. The three different rooms of accommodation were perfect and such stunning room for photos. We would highly recommend this venue for any wedding and look forward to booking the rooms for our anniversaries for years to come.

Thank you Brigitt for you review! Hope to see you again soon! Maybe for a nice quiet getaway in our B&Bs?! ;)

We got married here 5.3.21 and I can NOT fault this venue! From the day we fell in love with this magical venue, to the day we got married, the team have been so helpful, accommodating and personable! Ruth has done an incredible job ensuring the gardens look picture perfect all year round, and on our special day the guests couldn’t believe how luscious and perfect the gardens looked. The butterflies were out, the flowers blossomed and the perfect amount of shaded and sun areas! I spent our wedding eve in the on site cottage before hand, which made for perfect “getting ready photos”. The staff also think of all the small things like delivering fresh warm bread in the morning and treating you like royalty every visit. Can not recommend this venue enough! I’ll definitely be booking accommodation on our first wedding anniversary, any excuse to go back!

Hello Miriam, We loved having you both for your very special day and are so glad to hear you had such a great time. We look forward to seeing you both again.

We had to check out Al-Ru Farm when three people recommended them independently as a wedding venue. The venue has so much personality which gave our wedding day a uniqueness that more commercial venues can’t match. The gardens were spectacular, which attracted plenty of praise from our guests. Ruth was always great to chat with during the many times we swung past in the months leading up to the wedding, and Mardi was awesome, especially when it came to organising the menu options for our cocktail-style wedding. They were also super flexible when it came to decorating the Barn and Hayshed, giving us the freedom to create our own unique look and feel. The cherry on top was the International Suite, which was perfect for the girls to get ready in in the morning as well as us relaxing after our long day and night of partying! Thank you!

My husband and I needed to organise our wedding around tentative dates due to his visa obligations. Al Ru were so accommodating and understanding of our situation which lessened an already stressful and unpredictable planning schedule. I never felt like I was burdening to staff with all my questions, and I was always promptly responded too. I mean, always! They were flexible, made suggestions when needed and made the planning as well as our wedding day so easy and fun. The venue itself is stunning, and we absolutely loved our day. We highly recommend AL Ru Farm!

Great venue, even better staff! Friendly, efficient and helpful with any and all queries. We loved the gardens, the scope for personalisation and the willingness to make it special for us. Tobi the venue manager made it really easy to navigate the planning. And didn't mind the endless questions. The owners were lovely and really want you to have a great day. Food was great, I'm just going to reiterate the sausage rolls are THE BEST. We had a family feast which was plentiful and abundant. Dietary requirements easily catered for too. Had the best day, and accommodation is gorgeous too.
