Wedding & Party Band

The Kings Chapel, Old Amersham

South Farm is a distinctly different venue and grounds for your wedding, or event.

The elegant buildings and enchanting grounds, totally secluded and set deep in the countryside, provide the perfect backdrop for rustic and boho weddings, both large and small. The setting is exclusive, the style is yours, and South Farm are totally flexible. Few other places offer such a mix of enchanting spaces to use on the day making South Farm an ideal choice in your search for Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire or Cambridgeshire Wedding Venues.

The Sam Lewis Wedding & Party Band is one of Hertfordshire's busiest bands performing at 50-100 weddings and events per year. We have worked closely with South Farm for a few years now, performing here many times in the garden, dairy barn, horse barn and main Tudor barn.

Review by Mat & SJ

Sam and his band are superb! Sam was great from the start, communicating with us and sharing ideas.

On our wedding day at the amazing South Farm, Sam played a beautiful acoustic set during the ceremony and reception drinks (with kids songs) and then moved onto a great party set rocking with his band throughout the evening. Sam and his band are very talented and had people dancing from the beginning to the end of the evening.

We have had so many positive comments about Sam and his band from our guests. Thank you so much for making our day that extra bit special. Professional, friendly and talented. Highly recommended. Five Stars.

It's important to book the right suppliers for the job. Recommended suppliers are usually selected by the venue as their respective brands work well together. A recommended wedding and party band should know when to arrive, where to set up and what music to play to keep guests on the dance floor all night long. All professional bands will have the right equipment for the venue along with public liability insurance and P.A.T. (portable appliance testing) certification.

The Sam Lewis Wedding & Party Band have worked with a number of different photographers at South Farm and we're always pleased to see familiar faces. Never underestimate the power of suppliers that know each other.  We thoroughly enjoy working with Tom Halliday of Tom Halliday Photography at South Farm. Tom is an excellent photographer with his own unique style. Subsequently he's incredibly busy so get in there quick if you're keen!
