We had our wedding at the Al Ru Farm on the 19th of May 2023, it was one of the best days of my life. Having the outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception was perfect for an evening wedding. The team (led by Cara and Mardi) were so lovely and extremely helpful any time I emailed them they would respond quickly with whatever my request was. Guests are still talking about the venue, great service and incredible food so thank you to the Al Ru Farm team for making our wedding day truly wonderful. It was a perfect day!

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.
