Emily & Dan, Wedding October 2018
We first met Nikki around a year before our wedding, when we had been desperately searching for the perfect place. Right from the off, she put us at ease with her friendly and professional approach. Nikki wasn’t phased by us wanting to pay in chunks through the year, which was very helpful for us as we had so much else to pay out for.
Our venue was a beautiful location and blank canvas that we were pretty much able to make our own. The farmer who owned the land was also very accommodating and friendly, even going so far as to trim the grass in the immediate area around our tipis and let us have a pre wedding photo shoot on the grounds a couple of weeks before the wedding.
The grounds themselves were approx 400 acres of fields, idyllic open spaces intertwined with a small lake, old church ruins (making for some great photos) and a couple of small woodland areas. There were also a rather cute family of Egyptian geese nesting nearby, this all added to the rustic countryside feel that we were going for.
Nikki was a brilliant organiser and no matter what we threw at her, even getting pregnant and throwing our 5 week old baby boy into the mix, which was a planning nightmare, she never seemed phased. Nikki, seamlessly coordinated all our suppliers and gave us some brilliant hints and tips on everything. It was an added bonus that she’d worked with many of our suppliers before and this helped the day run smoothly.
During the evening we had a problem with our evening caterers, whose equipment failed and tripped our generator, just as the band were setting up. Nikki ran around to ensure this was resolved and after about 20 mins we were up and running again. .
There was also the nice touch that Nikki provided as the evening caterers went in to meltdown saying they couldn’t provide food and Nikki offered to go to local chip shops and buy 170 portions of fish and chips for our guests and we could sort the money out afterwards. Fortunately, we didn’t need that as the caterers got themselves back up and running again, but the offer from Nikki was very kind and showed she is really willing to go the extra mile.
We can’t highly praise Nikki enough and she is fantastic at what she does. There are too many little touches that she adds to put into words, but all of these little touches added up to make our day really special. We would both recommend her services highly to anyone wanting a rustic outdoor type wedding. Thanks Nikki for all your hard work and making our day extra special!
From both of us thank you for all your help

Laura & Charlie, Wedding, July 2018
Charlie and I could not be happier with the help and advice received from Kim for our wedding day. We found Fiesta Fields on the internet after a few disappointing venue hunts and were feeling very downbeat about the whole situation! The day we met with Kim at Phoenice Fields, everything changed! The field itself was the perfect blank canvas to create the vision we had in mind and Kim was such a great addition to this with all her experience.
Throughout the year between booking and our wedding day she emailed us to check we had everything under control and happily helped with advice and suggestions, and nearer the time we met for a planning meeting. She liaised with the different contractors about technical matters, such as what power they needed, which meant that we didn't even need to think about it. Kim helped us to prepare the day before, thinking up any bits and pieces we might have forgotten, and then made the day, itself, run completely seamlessly.
We had our absolute perfect wedding day and that could not have been possible without Kim's help and the fabulous Phoenice Fields, which is the most wonderful setting for a rural wedding.
Julie & Martin, Wedding, July 2018
We recently got married at Hidden Valley in Godalming. We were looking for a relaxed, informal and "outdoorsy" venue; luckily we came across Nikki from Fiesta Fields.
We wouldn't have been able to achieve half of what Nikki had done for us, she truly made our day fantastic. We explained to Nikki the ideas we had in mind and she recommended a host of people who we were able to meet and chose from, making planning much less stressful! Nikki helps to create a unique day to truly reflect your personality. There was a great deal of flexibility when planning with Fiesta Fields, allowing you to put your own stamp on the whole day, unlike so many other venues where there are set packages.
We are so grateful to Nikki, as without her the day would not have been as perfect as it was. Nikki couldn't have been more helpful, caring and super organised. We cannot thank Nikki enough for everything she did for us and would highly recommend her to anyone.
(In addition to our Essentials package, we also took care of marquee, catering, bar and DJ coordination for Julie & Martin)
Sarah & Harry, Wedding, August 2018
Fiesta Fields arranged our stupendous wedding reception at Phoenice Fields in Norbury Park, nr Leatherhead. Throughout Kim gave us confidence in the day and was supremely helpful, suggesting some great providers of essential items (tipi marquee, loos etc) and coordinating it all for us with zero fuss.
On the day the tipi standing in the beautiful rustic location wowed our friends and family and warmed the hearts of even the most sceptical of our traditionally minded older relatives. The day was an amazing success and Kim aided with each and every detail, right down to setting up the silent disco for after hours (a must for any wedding now!)
From the venue to the help provided to the lovely feeling of engaging with Surrey Wildlife Trust I cannot recommend Fiesta Fields and Kim’s help enough. Thanks for making our day so special and unique!
(In addition to our Essentials package, we also took care of tipi coordination and some styling elements)
Holly & Miles, Wedding, July 2018
My better half and I recently tied the knot at the Hidden Valley, one of Fiesta Fields' gorgeous locations. We were looking for a magical, relaxed, unconventional wedding in the countryside, and Hidden Valley didn't disappoint. It was absolutely stunning and we, and our guests, were blown away by the setting.
However, what truly made our wedding day was the relentless effort and patience that Nikki put into making sure we were ready. From managing the site, suppliers, power and services beforehand, to a pre-wedding walk through and then ensuring everything ran smoothly on the day - we couldn't have done it without her. She put us at ease at every stage and was totally committed to our vision.
We'll be staying in contact with Nikki, even though our wedding is over, and are currently plotting an excuse for another party with Fiesta Fields, who we can't recommend more highly.

Lauren & Ashley, Wedding, July 2018
When we decided we wanted a wedding festival in a field in Surrey, the first problem was, where do you find a field to hire! We came across Festa Fields on line, we met Nikki and Kim who showed me a few fields.. They were mostly booked up for the date we wanted in July when suddenly Nikki called and told me they had just got access to a new space, just outside Dorking, called Spirit Lake. Calling it a field doesn’t really do it justice, it is a beautiful garden with a woodland area to walk through, a walled garden and two beautiful lakes. It has ample space for people to glamp in bell tents or to pitch up normal tents. We had over 110 people camping over.
The owner of the field is a lovely, really laid back guy, we were his first event and he went above and beyond to help us make everything just as we wanted it. He even drove guests and the bridal party in on his tractor, which he had a trailer made specifically for us!
Kim was very helpful in the run up to the event, they arranged the toilets and generator and security for the day but also suggested some great suppliers from the tipi to the bell tents. She came to help us set up on the Friday and ran the wedding day for us. Even took our baby for a walk to get her to sleep.
The day could not have been better! I highly recommend Fiesta Fields and Spirit Lake for anyone wanting a fun, laid back festival wedding!
Nicki, Hen do, July 2018
We have just returned from a fantastic hen do at a Fiesta Fields site and I can not recommend them highly enough. Nikki is so amazing to work with; professional yet everything was very personable and she helped enormously. She was able to recommend suppliers as well as sourcing new ones and ensured that everything was organised to meticulous detail.
We had struggled to find somewhere that offered the flexibility to do what we wanted on the site but that also had the support we needed and it was the extra touches such as Nikki delivering breakfast to us each morning that really made a difference. The breakfast provided was all of a really high quality which was commented on by all the hens and again just added to the whole weekend.
Cannot thank you enough, you really helped to make a it a memorable weekend and we couldn’t have done it without your help! Thank you
Rhian - Bandstand work party, June 2018
Our Summer party could not have gone any better. Nikki provided Bandstand with stacks of creative ideas, events expertise and advice in order to deliver our best company party. Everything was dealt with efficiently and calmly and with plenty of detail, I would definitely recommend Fiesta Fields. This has set a serious benchmark for next year’s celebrations..
Alastair & Patricia - Joint 70th birthday celebration, June 2018
Thank you Nicky for being there with us, ‘holding our hands’. It meant that I was able to be fully present with what I was involved in and you were the invisible thread that held it all together. I am especially grateful to you for checking-in with me throughout the day with warmth and kindness - Patricia
Renting a field in the middle of a wood is not a cheap way of throwing a party, after you add in posh loos, generator and security, never mind the marquee, food and music. But if you want it to go well, whatever the weather (and ours was perfect) and you want afterwards to savour memories of a wonderful day with no regrets, we recommend Fiesta Fields without hesitation - Alastair
Tom - Stag Festival, May 2018
I couldn't have asked to find a better company to help organise my event. From the word go Nikki has been perfect - professional, attentive, thorough and friendly, she was able to help organise my event and make it run a seamlessly as possible. I was looking to hire a field for a weekend, but Nikki went above and beyond to suggest and help find suppliers to cover everything I needed. I've never experienced someone so able, willing and helpful to make sure we had everything we need. Also, the location she suggested was absolutely incredible. I really think it was a stroke of luck finding you all that time ago. Many many thanks to Fiesta Fields for taking my event to the next level.
Lizzie & Marc - Wedding, August 2017
Kim did a phenomenal job when working with us to organise our dream wedding. She is incredibly knowledgeable with fantastic connections. She offered help and advice when needed, but she also left us to organise things independently when we wanted. She met with us throughout the planning stages, enquiring about finer details which we hadn’t even considered! We looked at a range of Fiesta Fields’ beautiful sites and fell in love with Staffhurst Wood. The secluded field and woodland approach was perfect for us.
On the days leading up to the wedding Kim coordinated all of the suppliers and put our minds at rest with plan B if it rained (although I was determined it wouldn’t). On the actual day Kim was everywhere but was completely unobtrusive - she kept everything on time and running smoothly. She also did a brilliant job at calming me when my bridesmaids and I arrived to torrential rain - things had been reorganised so smoothly the guests didn’t know any different! Thankfully the sun came out after the ceremony and our photographer shot the most stunning photos. We can’t thank Kim enough for her care and attention to detail, and for sorting out things on the day without us needing to worry. I would highly recommend Kim and Fiesta Fields! She gave us our dream day in the most beautiful location.
Sarah & Justin - Silver Wedding Anniversary, September 2017
Nikki, another big thank you for helping make our party go so well – you gave us some really good advice along the way (didn’t really have much of a clue when we were getting started) and the silent disco in particular was a big hit! Everyone seemed to have a ball – can’t recommend it all highly enough (you can quote me!!)
Rachel & Guy - Wedding, August 2017
When we first met Nikki at Phoenice Fields on a sunny October morning we instantly knew this was the place we wanted to have our wedding! Driving down the long track to reach the field was very exciting and we were already planning what signs and decorations we could put up along the way. The field is stunning with amazing views across the Surrey countryside, you would never know the M25 was only 10 minutes away!
Nikki has been fantastic to work with and has always been at the end of the phone or email, responding very quickly to the numerous queries we had on the lead up to the wedding. We could not have pulled off such a fabulous, amazing day if it wasn’t for Nikki’s help and advice. We were after a chilled, relaxed day and Nikki definitely ensured this was the case, working hard in the background ensuring everything went to plan. Thank you for all of your hard work, we hope many more couples can enjoy celebrating at Phoenice Fields!
Lauren & Tony - Wedding, July 2017
Kim, thank you so much. The wedding was out of this world amazing and we loved every single moment of it including the rain as it made people mingle, people who didn't know each other were chatting and laughing away - it was brilliant, chilled and exactly how we wanted it.
Thank you for all your hard work you inputted and for helping when I just was to stressed to even see the end product of our hard work.
Both me and my husband would recommend you to everyone looking for a different wedding. Your services are outstanding and your friendliness and help is 10 out of 10.
Juliette & Ben - Wedding, July 2017
Kim, we can't thank you enough for all your help leading up to and on our wedding day. You are definitely made for your job as you are so thorough and think of everything that needs to be sorted. On the day we both felt very confident that we were in good hands so that we could relax and enjoy our day. There were a few moments that you definitely saved our bacon, firstly me forgetting to provide my cake maker with edible flowers that were meant to decorate the cake and then our hooks to hold our flowers down the aisle were too flimsy to put in the ground. You saw the problem and without panic sorted it out logically and calmly.
For all the future bride and grooms in your care, they are extremely lucky to have you by their side. Thank you so so much for everything you did!
Also would like to mention how brilliant Phoenice Fields was as our wedding location. Fields and sheep in the background as far as the eye could see and skylarks singing their little hearts out. Couldn't have wished for a better backdrop to our ceremony and reception.
Thanks again Fiesta Fields for all your hard work and dedication to making sure we had a magical day. We wish you all the best in your future weddings and won't hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
Kirsty & Jon - Wedding, July 2017
Nikki was great from start to finish. From showing us Hidden Valley and giving us the vision for what things could look like on the day, to coming up with some great suggestions for food and drink options, to seamlessly communicating with all our suppliers, to working effortlessly on the day (and the day before before the day) to ensure everything ran perfectly. Nikki was always available to chat or email through any questions, and overall made what undoubtedly was a feat in project management run smoothly and professionally. We couldn't recommend Nikki or Hidden Valley highly enough.
(In addition to our Essentials package, we also took care of tipi, catering and bar coordination for Kirsty & Jon)
Louise & Justin - Wedding, June 2017
Nikki, thank you so much for everything, we couldn't have done it without you! Your input was invaluable and even though we are very proud of what we created, we definitely owe a lot of that to you and your amazing organisation! Having you there on the day meant that I could really switch off and enjoy every second knowing that you were there in the background making it all run like clockwork!
David & Kat - Wedding, June 2017
Nikki met with us twice before the big day to run through suppliers/plans and to give us some ideas of her own which turned out great. She was also with us from 9 am till 9 pm on the day and insisted on doing all of the running around and liaising with suppliers so that we could enjoy our big day. The day and night were absolutely perfect – and this is largely down to Nikki’s exemplary planning and organisational skills. If you are thinking of a festival type wedding, or blessing outside, then don’t hesitate – speak to Nikki and view your chosen location(s).
Jo - Hen Glamping, April 2017
Thanks so much for your help, it was fantastic working with you – you answered all my weird and wonderful requests quickly and were really accommodating! Everything was taken care of and the location was absolutely gorgeous! I felt very assured throughout the whole process and would and already have recommended you to anyone that will listen! Just wish we could do it all again!
Ellie - Hen Glamping, April 2017
I had such a special time - Joanne and the girls really did the most incredible job, I couldn't believe my eyes when I arrived! It was an amazing surprise.
The location itself was stunning - such a beautiful setting with the bluebells and woods, I absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend it to others as well. I’ve been told you were a dream to work with so big thank you for all your efforts. The beds in the bell tents were super comfy too!
Jess- Hen Glamping, April 2017
Everyone had such a fab weekend and the weather really didn't get the better of us, to be honest the landowner coming to rescue with his van for Darren to cook in and the duo to play was amazing. It was almost like a little mini stage.
My sister sent me such a long, grateful lovely message saying how much she loved every minute of it. She added lots of comments about all the suppliers 'the tea lady had the most beautiful crockery and stunning cakes, the lemon cake couldn't have been beaten. ... the tents were so pretty and the colours really brightened up the field....the landowner was so friendly and helpful saving the day with his lorry... all the food was so good, the jerk chicken and antipasti was our favourite from Catch a Fire, so yummy...breakfasts were so good too, so much choice, the band were just amazing, more then happy to pop on a flower headband and matching ponchos to ours, they read the group so well and involved everyone, we all loved them and they were such great fun..' her favourite line so far to me has just been 'you smashed it'.
So, thank you for helping me bring it all together, your choice of suppliers, help and information leading up to the event and also for everything you brought along for the weekend, camping gear, blankets, kitchen kit, endless supplies of water ice etc.
It was an amazing weekend from start to finish.
Louise - Family Glamping, April 2017
Everyone had a great time and I'm sure we will do it again. Thanks for all your help xx
Carly & Tom - Wedding Reception, July 2016
Tom and I always knew we wanted a relaxed outdoor wedding in a field, with a tipi, and camping. So when we found Nikki through Fiesta Fields and realised they were based right round the corner from my mums house, we knew we had the perfect location for our outdoor wedding, and didn't look any further. The fields we were offered were beautiful, so imagining how we wanted to create our venue was easy! We chose Hidden Valley as we wanted to be really secluded but also wanted our guests to be able to walk from the local church and importantly not see the venue until they arrived after the ceremony (Everyone parked on the top field, walked to the church and then walked to hidden valley afterwards).
From the day we made contact with Nikki, she was great at communicating, which is extremely important when organising a wedding! Nikki is really experienced with wedding planning so was very thorough when running through the day with us in advance, and picked up on things we hadn't thought about. We are really grateful for all of Nikki's support in the run up to and during our wedding.
We were so lucky with the weather and had the most amazingly sunny day which meant we could make the most of the beautiful scenery. Thank you Fiesta Fields for making our wedding day magical and memorable, and a day we will treasure forever.
Paula & Jon - Wedding Reception, July 2016
When first looking around at venues we struggled to find anything that felt right for us and fitted our requirements logistically but when we stumbled across Fiesta Fields we knew that this was everything that we'd been looking for.
When we first met Nikki and talked over our ideas we felt instantly at ease that she completely shared our vision unlike many of the wedding organisers that we had spoken to previously, Roberts Field was stunning, safe for the kids and the perfect location for our wedding reception, we had no doubts about it.
During the organising process Nikki was in no way imposing but always available and happy to do as much or as little as we required, she was on hand to offer advice and incredibly professional and accommodating in her approach.
We couldn't have been happier with the result, all ages had an amazing day and everyone seemed genuinely blown away by the location and the set up.
Our day couldn't have been more perfect and we would like to thank Fiesta Fields for all of their help in creating everything we'd hoped for.
Primrose & Sam - Wedding Reception, April 2016
We wanted to say thank you so much for everything you have done for us over this year and especially on the day. You were so fantastic on the day making sure everything ran smoothly, thank you so much. We wouldn't have been able to have everything so well organised if it weren't for you on the day and before helping us.
Harriet & Jamie - Wedding Reception, August 2016
We were so lucky to find Nikki and Fiesta Fields. It was always my dream to have an outdoor wedding reception – a festival-style event – and Nikki made it all come true for us. From the organisation and brilliant vendor suggestions at the beginning, to being totally integral on the day itself. I also loved your ‘to hire list’, there were so many gorgeous details to choose from – I wanted them all! Not to mention all of your personal touches and help – the fact that you helped me the day before string paper lanterns was really above and beyond! I couldn’t recommend you enough. Thank you for everything.
Joanna - Hen glamping, May 2016
The hen weekend itself was absolutely everything myself and the other hens could imagine. Lou had no idea what we planned and was completely bowled over by the idyllic setting and attention to detail that Nikki had provided. The sun was shining, the prosecco was flowing and all the Hen’s had an absolutely brilliant time.
I can’t thank Nikki and Fiesta Fields enough for all their hard work leading up to and on the actual weekend. They made it so perfect and I would recommend anyone looking for something different for a Hen do or any special occasion - they really do provide that “wow” factor and can cater to all budgets and all requirements.
Colin and Nicola - Family glamping, August 2016
Nicola and I really appreciate your efforts to ensure everything ran a smoothly as possible. We achieved the party we had in our mind when we first discussed the idea. Thank you.
Lee and Amelia - Wedding Reception, August 2016
Fiesta Fields were brilliant in finding our wedding venue/field, and making sure our day went smoothly and to plan.
Nikki's experience in outdoor events helped immensely when going through the run up to the big day and making sure we had not missed anything.
We couldn't have asked for a better day, we loved every minute.
Dave and Philippa - Wedding Reception, September 2015
Our wedding day was perfect from start to finish, thanks in no small part to Fiesta Fields. The field itself was in a beautiful secluded spot, surrounded by woodland, and the sun shone all day long. Nikki offers a very personal service, with bespoke packages available to suit every occasion. She was always available on the other end of the phone to allay any concerns in the run-up to the big day, and we were really impressed with her overall attention to detail. Nikki really cares about the service she provides, and came down to the field to personally wish us well the day before the wedding, and followed up afterwards to ensure we were happy with how everything had gone. We would certainly recommend others to use Fiesta Fields.
