Where are you located and what service/products do you offer?
Cogges Manor Farm is located just 5 minutes from Witney town centre in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. We offer dry hire of the 17th century barns, offering couples total freedom to create their perfect day. The barns can cater for up to 200 guests, and with no restrictions on suppliers, Cogges provides a blank canvass to suit any budget. Whatever your style; boho chic, vintage, festival or even Game of Thrones, Cogges may be just what you're looking for!
How long have you been involved in the industry?
Cogges has been hosting weddings since 2012.
What planning advice would you give to couples?
Finding the right wedding venue is key to the whole day, and you'll know if it's right from the moment you arrive. With Cogges, or any venue which offers dry hire, a little imagination is all the is required, but don't be afraid to ask for inspiration or ideas to help turn the space into the magical place to fit your own dream and aspirations. Sometimes it can seem like a big task ahead, but break it down into small, manageable jobs, and you'll find planning your own wedding isn't as daunting as it might first appear.
Have you got any trend tips for couples planning their own wedding?
We've certainly noticed recently how couples have been bringing the outside, inside! Lots of luscious flowers and foliage, natural colours, wood and moss on the tables, and simple white lighting. We're always surprised how creative you can be, even with a limited budget. Just look in the garden for your inspiration!
Have any weddings you attended left a lasting impression and why? Every wedding is unique at Cogges, but we love seeing the personal touches that bring a little humour to the decor, such as welly boot vases on the tables, or when the wedding party makes full use of the Cogges site, including taking the farm goats for a walk!
Any other information you like to add?
We would always recommend coming to view the barns as soon as you start thinking of Cogges as your potential venue. It's not just the barns that you're hiring as weddings are such an important part of Cogges, you're also allowing us to keep our doors open and preserving this historic site for years to come.
