What we require from you

  • You use one of our designated caterers and liaise directly with them for menu selection and payment for their services.
  • You are precise with your numbers as we will only have seating for the numbers you confirm
  • Final numbers are given to us 30 days prior to the event
  • Seating plan (if required) sent to us 1 weeks prior to event
  • You liase with your event co-ordinator regularly to ensure they have all the correct details
  • You make payments at the required intervals set out in the event contract. Delay in payment could cause delays in the organising of your event
  • Children are supervised at all times
  • You advise us if you are hiring any external companies i.e. AV, Entertainment, Videographer, Décor etc. for your event as we require their health and safety documents to be received and approved by us a minimum of 7 days prior to the event. Failure to provide suitable health & safety documentation may result in the contractor being refused entry to the venue.

Additional Information


In the unlikely event that you need to cancel your event, please note that all payments made are non-refundable and cancellation charges may be incurred dependent upon the time between cancellation and when the event was due to take place. Full cancellation terms can be found here


Room Hire charges

Both the Basic and the Deluxe package include 12 hours access to the venue, as a general rule this would include 4 hours set up time, 6 hours event time and 2 hours breakdown time. This gives your chosen contractors time to set up and remove any décor you have ordered, and the catering company time to prepare your meal. Should you require additional time for your contractors then an additional room hire charge will apply. Your wedding co-ordinator will be able to give you a full quote, however, as a guideline the charge will be approximately £300 per hour for every hour or part of that you need outside of the 12 hour package allowance.


Chair covers and sashes

To add white chair covers and a coloured sash to a basic package would incur a £2.50 per person charge.

The Deluxe wedding package includes white chair covers and a sash from the below list. Chair bands and colours not listed below can be provided at an additional charge.
