In the interest of maintaining a more ecologically friendly environment, we only allow real dried flowers confetti. This links with the farm and it’s ethos towards sustainability. To facilitate this, we have selected a lovely supplier that grows and dries their own flowers in Shropshire and ask that if possible all your confetti is purchased directly from them. If you have your own supplier of dried flower confetti, then we are of course happy for you to bring your own.

Yes, candles are allowed, however we do not allow sparkler candles.
