The Farm Cafe is a really magical venue. It’s open-air architecture and ceiling-high windows really showcase this special setting that overlooks the Collingwood Children’s Farm and it’s surrounds. We also work within the Collingwood Children’s Farm for larger groups of upto 300 guests.
WHAT WE DO
We help create weddings, but we’re not wedding planners in the traditional sense. We won’t make you choose between 14 types of identical satin chair bows or try to upsell you the crystal chandelier. In fact, the trappings and glitz are not what we’re about, instead, we’re into creating weddings that are personal, meaningful and an authentic reflection of the couple being married.
Don’t get us wrong, we believe a wedding should be drop dead gorgeous. That’s why so many of the people we employ are also qualified in creative and aesthetic fields such as design and styling. But in reality, the recipe for an awesome wedding is pretty simple: a whole bunch of people who love and support you, some incredible food, good drinks, tunes, and a great atmosphere. A wedding is the best party you’ll ever throw, and we’re here to make that happen.
So what do we do? Well, to share a slightly corny secret – we like to consider ourselves your wedding wing man (or wing-people to be precise). As much as we’re big advocates for the fact that organising a wedding can be straightforward and fun, there’s a lot that needs to come together in the lead up and on the day. So we’re your go-to people to help pull everything together.
SERVICES WE CAN HELP WITH
Furniture & Styling Equipment
The way we work is all about collaboration – while we can do it all (almost!), we actually love the creativity that comes out of including the ideas and DIY projects that our couples come up with, as well as working with any of their preferred vendors. So if you want to make all the decorations yourself – fantastic! On the day, we’ll set them up for you and make it look like what you would do , without you having to do the work. If you have a favourite florist? Awesome! We’ll be happy to work with them and give them any advice they need based on our knowledge of your plans and the venue.
We think of the process as a bit like building. We construct your wedding with you, piece by piece putting together the all the components that make up an awesome event.
We take feedback incredibly seriously – we value the comments that we get from couples, their guests and vendors and we’re proud to share the real feedback that we receive about our weddings.
“We had a fantastic day/night, it really was an amazing wedding. It was so ‘us’ and there isn’t anything we’d change. Our guests had a great time and can’t stop raving about the entire thing, down to the bar at the ceremony, to the amazing food, to lovely staff.
Sarah and the team made the process so easy, and absolutely stress free! What bride can say her wedding was stress free! haha Honestly the most stressful thing about the whole process was sitting in traffic on the way to the photos but no one could have predicted that.
Sarah answered all of our questions so quickly, sorted anything out and even organised our doughnut cake. We cannot speak more highly of you and your team, you really did make everything easy breezy and apart from not wanting anymore to have ‘our’ wedding haha, we would totally spread the word, that the farm is the place to get married. You guys rock!” - Bec and Sharon’s Cafe Wedding, March 2018
“We were so lucky to have Sarah help us plan our wedding. She is a total superstar who is funny, full of knowledge and completely calm and capable. The entire wedding planning process was super easy and straightforward. We loved the food and the gorgeous flowers from Bec and we can’t wait to see the photos Kitty took of us on the day. Special mentions go to Sarah, Kitty, Bec, Amelia, Jasmine, guinea pig wrangler, and all the event staff who worked the wedding – thank you for being awesome and doing such a great job to make our wedding day easy, beautiful and special for us.” - Kat and Chris’ Wedding, February 2018
