Each one of your suppliers will be contacted to discuss arrival times, correct gate entrance, parking, and on site procedures. We will also meet with them on site when needed.
Food is an important part of your wedding and we believe that you should be able to customise what you offer your guests on the day.
We offer bespoke weddings. This means that you have the total freedom on commissioning all aspects of food and drink selection to suit your ideas, theme, tastes, and budget. Unlike hotels and other traditional wedding venues who will insist and force on you their limited menu options.
You chose! – Our approved caterer offers over many menu options. You are also free to choose your own if they are already booked for your date or if our caterer is unavailable (they are very popular and they do get booked up).
If you choose an alternative Caterer, we will require their insurance certificate as well as their Hygiene certificate.
Be sure to discuss outdoor catering with your chosen supplier.
We do not charge any corkage charges. Our professional bar service will offer you tons of possibilities and you can customise what drinks you wish to offer your guests. (if you intend to bring any of your own drinks, you do need to discuss this with our approved bar supplier first).
The bar is a beautifully appointed and decorated Horse box. You can also request an additional internal bar inside the barn or Tipi.
Remember, if you book within 14 days of your viewing, the welcome drinks are on us (up to 100 guests and subject to special offer availability)
