Yes! We believe it's your wedding and you should be able to have the celebration you want. We have a huge list of local suppliers to help you out and love a challenge!
Not really, as long as you're not damaging the building or the trees we're happy for you to decorate however you'd like. We have ladders, a cherry picker and a scaffold tower to help you.
At the moment civil ceremonies have to be carried out under a 'permanent structure' so it's possible to get married in the Magic Circle Pavilion in the gardens. If you opt to have a celebrant led ceremony you can have a ceremony wherever you wish - we have woodland areas, fields and a lovely spot by the lakes on offer!
We ask that you make a call about whether you'd like to go ahead with your outdoor plans about a week before your wedding. This gives you the opportunity to see what the weather forecast predicts and us time to make the necessary preparations. It's up to you to decide whether you'd prefer an indoor option or just to give your guests umbrellas! If you choose an indoor option then we will set up a ceremony in the Barn. After the ceremony, we ask that your guests move up to the Bar and Snug areas and our staff will changeover the room so that your caterers can set up for your wedding breakfast. Once the changeover is complete then you're ready to go!
We will discuss your and your guests needs with you and work out a plan which takes everyone's needs into account. The Main Barn, Bar and Facilities all have flat access routes and a disabled toilet is installed. The Magic Circle has a short access route for anyone who might be less mobile.
