Offering a choice of options for your wedding, you can hold your wedding ceremony in our Ballroom, oak-panelled dining room, library or even outside in our grounds (weather permitting on the day of course!). There are several set-ups you can have if you decide to hold your ceremony on the lawns - we can help arrange a variety of chairs and our talented florist can advice on floral delights to enhance the already beautiful setting.
From June 2019, you are welcome to hold your wedding ceremony in our grounds (weather permitting). This document specifically relates to outdoor ceremonies and should be read in conjunction with our wedding brochure and Terms and Conditions of booking.
A decision will be made in conjunction with yourselves and the Superintendent Registrar by checking weather forecasts 24 hours prior to the ceremony, as to whether or not the ceremony can go ahead outdoors. This will also include taking into account the condition of the grounds which may have been affected by rain in the preceding days. Should it not be possible to proceed outdoors, we will continue with plans for your ceremony to take place in the most suitable licensed room inside the hotel. This will be the Ballroom, Restaurant or Library (depending on your numbers)
Signing of the Register
The wedding ceremony can take place in the grounds after which the happy couple will need to come into the Hotel with the Registrar and witnesses to undertake the necessary formalities in one of our licensed rooms. At this point we will start the drinks reception for your guests.
Additional costs for outside wedding ceremonies
For ceremonies outside the following additional costs will apply (in addition to any wedding package): Please note these costs are not refundable if ceremony cannot take place in the grounds.
Chair hire - from £7.50 per chair (these are used for the ceremony and for guests comfort during drinks reception and photographs) – Sashes are an additional cost which varies depending on the style requested
Hire of sound system - £200.00
Floral arch To be discussed with our florist. Prices vary depending on requirements.
