The Old Shooting School at Apsley

At Apsley Farms your wedding is uniquely yours. The site can offer huge flexibility – whether you envision an intimate gathering or a grand celebration, we’ll ensure every detail is tailored to your preferences. The 20 acre venue is divided into four main areas, and is set in 1000 acres of rolling farm and woodland.

We are a dry hire venue (site only)—so you bring in your own suppliers and choose to work with whoever suits you and your vision.

We can help with a recommended suppliers list to find your perfect match.

We offer exclusive hire for a full week to allow for relaxed setup and time for clearing the site.

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do

The growing trend in weddings towards sustainability and eco-friendliness is part of a larger global shift towards more environmentally conscious practices. Here at Apsley this is our core value and we encourage environmentally sympathetic events, below are just a few ideas.

  • Decorations, flowers and trees

    Biodegradable or reusable decor items are becoming popular. This includes using natural elements like flowers and plants that can be replanted. We can help source greenery and decorations from around our estate, working with your florists or design teams.

  • Ethical Attire

    There is a rise in wedding attire made from sustainable fabrics. Also hiring wedding dresses or formal suits is becoming more popular.

  • Local and Organic Catering

    Couples are opting for caterers who use local, organic and sustainably sourced food. This not only supports local businesses but also reduces the carbon footprint associated with food transportation.

    Plus – we have some delicious and exciting local produce in Hampshire! We can help with recommending local suppliers depending on your preferences.

  • Digital Inviations

    There is a move towards digital invitations and RSVPs to reduce paper waste.

  • Transportation

    Using electric or hybrid vehicles for transportation is gaining popularity. Or encouraging your guests to carpool is another way couples are making their weddings more sustainable.

  • Eco-favours

    Wedding favours are being chosen with sustainability in mind. So seed packets, potted plants, or charitable donations in guests’ names.

  • Waste Reduction

    Efforts to minimise waste include supplying compostable dinnerware. Setting up recycling stations at the venue and donating leftover food is a good way to reduce waste.

    Our Sustainable farming methods are 100% waste free. Apsley Farms uses modern farming techniques and equipment to maximise efficiency while harvesting arable crops to feed into the digesters. With a carbon footprint of around one-fifth of ‘natural gas’, the biomethane production provides sustainable fuel to help meet the UK’s energy needs and climate targets. By working within a circular economy, the team at Apsley Farms is proud of what has been achieved towards reducing our carbon footprint. But our ambitions go further still and we’re committed to making our operations completely carbon neutral, and closer towards achieving Net Zero.
