£2,600 on Fridays Only
(reduced to £2,000 Sunday to Thursdays)
Our 'venue hire only', self catering wedding option, is not available on Saturdays.
This option is primarily designed as a 'holding the date' facility. It allows you to decide your exact requirements, or upgrade to one of the wedding packages, later.
If you prefer to organise everything yourself, and provide your own wine and food, your own welcome drinks, and want a blank slate to fully plan your own wedding, you would stay on this self-catering wedding package.
You would then select wedding meals, buffets and drinks etc from our Regular Tariff page, based on your exact numbers and requirements, with no conditions attached for minimum guest numbers etc.
You may choose what you require from us, or select services from our approved list of independent local suppliers (allowing you to negotiate the best deal). To ensure the correct standards of catering are met, you must choose professional caterers / suppliers that we have on our approved list, or that we are prepared to add to our approved list.
In practice, most couples will switch to one of our discounted wedding packages as they are very good value. Our packages offer huge discounts on venue hire (or no venue hire at all), so work out more cost effective for you.
While our wedding packages offer great value for money, if you are undecided on your 'minimum number of guests', hiring the venue on this flexible arrangement is a good starting point - as you can upgrade later.
You can upgrade
However you cannot switch to our Last Minute Wedding Package. To upgrade, you invite a set minimum number of guests to your wedding breakfast and encourage a set number to stay overnight, as per the Wedding Package selected.
If you are in any doubt about being able to reach the minimum numbers required on our discounted wedding packages, you can book this self catering wedding first, to secure the date and venue. Then at your leisure, phone around your guests, send out your RSVPs, and decide whether you would prefer to be on a discounted wedding package or on a more flexible arrangement.
If you remain on this flexible self catering wedding package you can pick and choose what you require. You could decide to have:
1. A buffet only,
2. Higher or lower guest numbers,
3. A two course or three course wedding breakfast or
4. No wedding breakfast at all
5. You can even supply your own table wine (only available under this self-catering wedding option) or
6. You can choose one of our Drinks packages.
See our Regular Tariff page for all the options you can select individually (or buy in from our approved external suppliers).
