Small and Intimate Weddings

We welcome smaller weddings - our Library makes the perfect venue..


If you prefer a small and intimate wedding celebration you don't need to compromise on your wedding venue.

We have the newly refurbished Library with its unusual conical ceiling which creates the perfect setting for couples seeking an intimate celebration with family and friends.

The Library is licensed for 30 guests (including Bride and Groom)  for a civil wedding ceremony and seats 20 for a wedding reception.

Should you have between 20 and 35 guests for your wedding reception we would be happy to accommodate your guests in one of our two alternative dining areas.  Please ask for details.  For Monday-Thursday dates remaining in 2013 we are offering an all-inclusive package as detailed below.

So why wait?  All you need to do is discuss availability with our wedding coordinator, then leave the rest to us!
