Join the Privileged List
To receive FIRST REFUSAL offers on any cancelled weddings or first-call on dates about to be released for sale under our Last Minute Wedding Package, join our Privileged List using the form below.
You can also join the Privileged List for dates further ahead, that are yellow shaded with red font on the 2022 calandar here as these are secondary reserve dates for 2021 weddings that will be released if the 2021 wedding goes ahead on its original date.
Book a viewing here to get on the Privileged List, and when we know that you are still seriously interested, having seen the castle, we give you first refusal on upcoming Last Minute dates and pencilled in reserve dates that are released again.
Last Minute Wedding Packages for a Minimum of 50 day guests (LMWP50) can only be booked 6 months in advance. If you have 80 guests, you can book a Last Minute wedding 7-8 months ahead (LMWP80).
For dates further ahead, any of our other wedding packages can be booked.
If you want a Last Minute deal for a currently blank date that is further ahead, you can enter yourself onto the Privileged List and we'll tell you when this date is available on 'Last Minute' rates.
As well as blank dates, also look for dates marked in Yellow Shading with Red Font - see 2021 calendar here and for 2022
Here is why.
During COVID many weddings have two dates - their original date and a date pencilled in reserve that they may need to postpone into. These secondary reserved dates are in Yellow Shading with Red Font. These may come available again once COVID restrictions are eased and the original wedding date can go ahead.
1) You want to know when an empty date more than 6-8 months ahead comes available on Last Minute terms - add yourself to the Privileged List and we will let you know.
2) You want a date that is currently 'pencilled in' (Yellow Shaded / Red Font as above), tell us your preferred wedding date and you'll be the first to know if the date is released.

When you join the Privilege List, you get first refusal on dates soon to be released for the Last Minute Wedding Package, provided no Couple books a regular wedding package before then - see Pros & Cons below. For dates further ahead that get released (e.g. any 'pencilled in' yellow shaded red fonted dates), you get first refusal should these come available, for any applicable wedding package.
Privilege List - Pros and Cons
There are risks and benefits to waiting on a date coming up on LMWP (Last Minute Wedding Package). The benefit of waiting means if the date does not sell you then get a very good deal on Last Minute that cannot be beaten by any other venue (guaranteed).
The risk is the date may end up being sold on our regular wedding packages while some dates are now available for LMWP80 (Last Minute deals with 80 guests day and evening). If you have 80 day and evening guests, do not go on the List - book your date now.
You can book your date, if you have already viewed the venue. We don't offer Last Minute Weddings ahead of the month going green on the Availability Calendars.
Joining Privileged List does not guarantee the date as it could sell on another wedding package.
