Changes to our
Last Minute Wedding Package
On 01/08/2018, our Last Minute Wedding Package changes. Bookings before 01/08/2018 remain on original terms. Weddings enquiring after 01/08/2018 will be on the new versions of this wedding package - see links below. Enquiries 'in pipeline' during August will have one month (to end August) to book the 'old' package at old rates. The Last Minute Wedding Package changes are:
(1) Higher numbers are required as day guests, 80 on Saturdays, 60 on Fridays, 50 on Weekdays - instead of the current 40. We are a large venue offering exclusive use but are seeing a trend to smaller weddings, especially on Last Minute Weddings. We could switch to two smaller weddings a day but we know Wedding Couples prefer sole use. Larger venues have higher minimum numbers to ensure economies of scale and to properly fill the space. For us to offer exclusive use at low rates per head, your guest numbers need to be sufficient to properly fill a large castle wedding venue.
(2) There is a £5/ head increase in the Day Guest tariff, for the Wedding Breakfast as Welcome Drinks move to a new Wedding Drinks Package and are no longer included in the Day Guest tariff.
(3) Exclusive use including function room and main bar is conditional on having an evening buffet for a minimum of 80 evening guests; this is in addition to the current requirement for a minimum of 80 guests at the wedding breakfast.
