About Bishop Farmstead

Bishop Farmstead is a barn and farm wedding venue located in Southampton, New Jersey. An ideal place to host both your ceremony and reception, it has a cozy, yet spacious, barn setting as well as a great deal of outdoor areas for celebrations.

Facilities and Capacity

From the outside, there is a great deal to admire. The beautiful farmhouse with its garden, plants, and hedging creates a lush, laid-back feel. The tall trees, shrubbery, and green spaces help to create a natural wonderland perfect for newlyweds strolls, summertime al fresco dining, or cocktails.

There is a place for the couple of honor to celebrate their ceremony, right on the edge of a field of wildflowers, under an elegant, custom wood pergola. Guests are invited to gather to mark the moment when your union becomes official as your say your vowels in matrimony.

Undoubtedly, the venue’s big red barn is the jewel in the crown of this property. With ample space for hosting your reception, it offers large vaulted ceilings, beautiful dark wood, exposed ceiling beams, and rustic charm. Here, 175 guests can be accommodated, along with a spacious sized dance floor. Long farm tables with elegant, industrial-inspired chairs, provide a great deal of comfort for everyone to relax, enjoy the day, and sink into the atmosphere that has been cultivated. Hanging lampshade lights, fairy lights, and a show-stopping chandelier, offer a dimmable feature to create a suitably romantic atmosphere.

Services Offered

Conveniently, Bishop Farmstead includes an "exclusive" full service catering team. An event planner is also readily available to step in and assist with any coordination issues the couple might have, taking away some of the stress and responsibility from the couple, and leaving them to get lost in the emotion and unforgettable wonder. Event rentals, lighting, sound, and get-ready rooms are available, while the staff can provide cleanup and setup services for before and after the wedding.

History

The farmhouse at Bishop Farmstead was originally constructed back in the 18th century, while the big red barn came into existence after it was built in 1932. These spaces have been around for a long time, and they each have rich and colorful pasts. However, for the happy couple, the most important piece of the history here will surely be the day they got married. You could very well be the next couple to do so here.

    Excellent & exciting!

    Erika was so informative and her positive spirit just flows throughout the venue! She describes all the renovations that are going to get done! Can’t wayto see the finished venue!
    Has other amenities that other barn venues don’t have, like an elevator in it!

    Great food, pretty venue, shaky team

    We had our wedding here in September 2019.
    The good: The venue was absolutely stunning. The garden, the barn, the field; everything is out of a fairy tale. We did the cocktail hour in the garden and all of our guests were raving about how beautiful it was. We will never forget how beautiful the light was as the sun was dropping. The cocktail hour food was perfect and everybody loved it. The barn was amazing with everything set up. It is impossible to take a bad picture here. The food by JAM catering was amazing. After our tasting we knew it would be great, and they certainly delivered amazing food. Meals came out quick. The free cocktail station with the Ambassador program was really nice.
    The bad: This was their first year of weddings so we’ll give them some slack on growing pains. Throughout the planning process, it was sometimes pulling teeth to get answers from them. Erika the GM of Bishop Farmstead is so nice and pleasant to work with. That said, she seems to be disorganized and probably understaffed. In the planning phases she would forget things we decided on or forget to get us answers. We were trying to finish the planning as quickly as possible but we always seemed to be waiting on them. Day of, Erika and her staff were definitely overwhelmed. Despite a clear diagram on paper that the staff created, they set up our ceremony chairs wrong. With 30 minutes to go before people arrived, we had to tell them this isn’t what we agreed to and they needed to fix it. With all the staff fixing that, nobody from the venue was around to greet our buses when they arrived. Guests had no idea where to go and started wandering around while the wedding party was finishing up photos. It is noteworthy that the staff did get the chairs set up correctly and the ceremony was beautiful. No harm no foul I guess, but certainly a massive amount of anxiety right before we are about to get married. Once inside for the barn for the reception, it was hot (it was a hot day). We were told all week that the air would be on. When we got upstairs, all the windows were open. We asked repeatedly to close the windows and crank the air because people were hot and starting to congregate outside where it was cooler. We heard yes, no problem, right away each time – they never closed the windows and who knows if the air was on. Note that we had 150 people and things were tight. They sell the venue as a maximum of 200. We don’t see how that is possible, 150 is about the maximum in our opinion. There were other small things we weren’t happy about – bartenders pouring tiny drinks and a line at the bar all night, forgetting to move our lounge furniture adjacent to the barn so people could sit down outside, losing some items after the wedding we asked to be saved, it is a little annoying how the drop offs work for alcohol and decorations,
    Overall: There is way more text in the bad than the good. However we would definitely get married here again. We certainly don’t mean to paint a picture that our day was a disaster. It was beautiful and amazing, there were just few things that went sideways and the planning portion leading up to the wedding could be arduous at times. If you go into things knowing you need to hold their hand a lot, things will be fine. We think a lot of the issues are just because this was their first season at this venue and they just got overwhelmed. Generally speaking everyone is very nice and I’m sure they will work out the kinks for future weddings. If you have some patience, the splendor of the venue and the grounds makes it totally worth it.
