The Day Before…

  • You are welcome to come and set up the day before from midday until 5pm. This means you can add your own touches to the venue ahead of your big day (and get a good night’s sleep the night before knowing it’s all set up just as you wanted it to be!).
  • For couples getting married onsite, we do a rehearsal the day before – checking music timings, seating and ensuring everyone knows what they are doing. Honestly, this is invaluable – it really calms everyone!

  • There is also always a member of our Bar team on site during set up days, ready to make coffees, pour fizz and help with anything else you may need.
  • The accommodation is available to night before, so that you can get a good nights sleep on site, knowing everything has been set up and is ready for your big day!
  • A welcome hamper and fizz in the accommodation, plus some treats in the venue for you too!
