Your Day

The time you host your celebrations with us depends on your personal preference as well as the availability of the registrar.
We find that between 1pm and 2pm works well, it gives you time to get ready as well as making sure we still have stunning light for your photographs in the gardens.

A typical day may look like this:

1.00pm – Ceremony
1.30pm – Drinks Reception
2.00pm – Group shots & Confetti in the court yard
2.15pm – Photographs in the gardens
3.00pm – Guests to be Seated for Wedding Breakfast & Speeches (Please allow a minimum of 2 hours for your Wedding Breakfast)
6.30pm – Evening Guests to Arrive
7.00pm – Cake cutting and first dance
11.00pm – Last Orders and the music to end
11.30pm – Carriages
12.00am – The estate to close
