Ali and Carmel Haigh
We are husband and wife team Ali and Carmel Haigh. Ali was born at Long Furlong Farm and has spent most of his life working there too! He has also been responsible for hosting many events on the farm over the years. When Carmel came into his life, they both wanted the opportunity to share the beauty, location and simplicity of the farm with others.
We were Long Furlong Farm’s first wedding couple in July 2018. We wanted our own wedding to be special, memorable and personal to us, so we invested heavily in ensuring it was everything we wanted it to be and so much more, not just for us – but all future couples.
In 2017, we started work converting our buildings and land into a truly unique rustic venue. Our venue is a totally blank canvas, with space and versatility, we provide a 3 day hire, which includes time to style it yourself and make it your own and believe us there is plenty that you can do to make your day unique and personal. But things don’t stop there, even now we are still developing and improving facilities as we act on the feedback received at every event.
Your wedding, your way
We might only have been in the wedding venue industry for a short time, but we have learnt a lot from the many weddings we have hosted since our own. The most important thing you need to know is that we are friendly, personable, approachable and have surrounded ourselves with a great team. We have also cherry picked exceptionally talented suppliers, who consistently deliver the highest standards and display exceptional attention to detail.
However, what people say is the biggest difference between us and other wedding venues is our friendly nature and flexibility. We want your experience to be warm and welcoming and help you feel at home at Long Furlong Farm. From your first visit to see the venue, until the day after your wedding, you are in safe hands. We go above and beyond to ensure your day is what you want it to be and that everything runs smoothly. We are relaxed, listen to and welcome your ideas and work closely with you (and your suppliers) to ensure you have the day of your dreams.
We would be privileged to play a small part in your special day!
