Supplier access is from 8 am on the day of the wedding. If there is not a wedding the day prior your supplier can setup between the hours of 9 am and 4pm. Evening setup maybe available subject to availability and is subject to an additional fee.
Please remember that if you choose your ceremony to be outdoors, you must have a wet weather plan in place. This must be an alternative function room that can accommodate all your guests. Our team will be in touch a few days prior if the weather forecast looks like rain, we cannot make a decision on the day.
We kindly ask that you refrain from using any adhesives that may be difficult to remove or that leave a mark, nothing is to be stapled into the dancefloor. Suppliers must use NEC tape if they want to stick cables etc. to the floor. Careful when cutting or removing to not cut wires. Please contact the wedding team if you are unsure before the day.
We have an excellent blue tooth sound system within the manor house and a PA system in the ballroom with a microphone. You may bring in a device with an aux input to connect with this.
Bands and DJ’s are welcome and a great way of getting your guests up on the dancefloor. The sound limiter is set at 92 decibels which is set by the local council and forms part of our music licence.
There is a box on the staging area that works like a traffic light system, this indicates to the DJ that they are coming up to that level. Your DJ will be signed in and been shown how the sound limiter works if they have not been to the venue before.
Our fully stocked bar is located within the ballroom and operated by our in house team. The bar opens from 7pm and we just ask for a minimum spend of £750 whether this is a tab or guests purchasing drinks on the evening. We do not accept cash payments.
There is a £1,000 corkage fee if you would like your caterer to continue to serve your drinks, they must provide their own pop up bar and a personal licence to serve alcohol.
We are located in a conservation area so fireworks are not permitted. As a popular alternative you can do sparklers with your guests on the patio before 9pm in the evening.

As long as they are supplied by licenced companies and have the required health and safety certification. They can access the grounds via the white gate in the supplier’s car park and if they can fit through the lower area outside the bay window, outside the great hall is a great place for them to park up.
The tables are 5ft 6 in rounds that seat up to 10 guests but you can hire in your own tables if you prefer. We also have some 6ft 2 in long trestle tables, great for a traditional top table. In addition we also have a cake table and poser tables for reception drinks.
Candles look just stunning on the stairs of the great hall or against the contemporary colours of the ballroom. All flames must be covered, encased in a vase or lantern for health and safety reasons.
