CELEBRANT
We offer a celebrant service and would be delighted to help bring your wedding together, from working with you to write your vows to creating your unique ceremony. Contact us for further information and to arrange a consultation.

Our list represents the catering companies who have had the very best feedback from our couples, but of course we are happy to welcome others. Talk to us before you book, we know most of them and can help you find the one that works best for you.

Tipples run the bar at The Courtyard. They have a range of packages to suit all budgets and can’t be beaten on quality, value or service. Further information on our partners’ page or https://www.tipplesbar.co.uk

Our license is until midnight, with last orders at 11.40pm

We have accommodation for the Bride and Groom available in our fully restored gatehouse. For your guests, there are links on our partners’ page to wonderful self-catering accommodation nearby, suitable for families and groups. For those who’d prefer a hotel, the nearest would be https://www.wynnstayhotel.com where many of our guests choose to stay.

Absolutely, this is a list of some of our local providers.

It’s important to ensure your guests have transport arranged in good time, we are in a rural area with no 4G so last-minute booking, Uber and other apps won’t work once they’ve arrived!

Yes, we’re happy for you to use confetti in the ceremony room only.

No, sorry, we have livestock and woodlands all around so the risk is too great.

Ceremony Room – 52’ x 18’

The tables are standard height with tops measuring 6’x3’
