Winter Weddings with added entitlement!
Lords of the Manor has added a twist to winter weddings with the introduction of a new wedding plan that includes the title of Lord of the Manor for every couple. Our aim, when hosting any wedding is to ensure that the happy couple feel like Lord and Lady of Lords of the Manor for the day. It seemed only natural for us to purchase the title of Lord of the Manor as our gift to bride and groom.
Lords of the Manor’s Winter Packages offer exceptional value for money with great service and food. Please ask for details.
Day Ceremonies & Celebrations
A day event at Lords of the Manor can accommodate guests for a Civil Ceremony and Celebration Meal for up to 40 guests with the day coming to a close when guests depart by 5pm.
Celebrations in a Marquee
To accommodate a greater number of guests, a Marquee can be arranged in the grounds for 50 to 150 people. This works very well at Lords and we have received a great deal of positive feedback. There are a limited number of dates available and tariffs for the Marquee vary according to your individual needs. Exclusive Use of Lords is required for this option.
Imagine a blue sky filled with sunshine, a light breeze, the river babbling; friends and family sharing in the joy of your Day, sharing the perfect picnic. Your guests will be furnished with Picnic Rugs and Hampers laden with a gourmet feast for them to enjoy relaxing on the lawn in the sunshine, whilst our staff ensure glasses are topped with chilled champagne; a game of croquet may be in order too. A delightful Celebration Picnic is available for up to 20 guests.
Your Wedding – Fully Personalised
To ensure your day is exactly as you wish, our basic packages are usually customised, but once we have discussed your ideal requirements, we can provide a comprehensive estimate.
Some Other Thoughts:
All public areas at Lords are decorated with fresh floral arrangements. However, if you would like additional floral decorations to suit your colour scheme then we will be pleased to arrange this for you. Alternatively you can meet with our florist who can help with ideas and prices.
There are several options concerning music for the Ceremony and Reception, from a string quartet or harpist to your own selection of music. We are able to arrange a disco or live music up until midnight if you have exclusive use of the hotel.
We have a variety of recommendations from the traditional tiered cake,cup cake arrangement or for those with a savory taste, a Cheese Cake.
Master of Ceremonies
Our Manager on duty will act as a Master of Ceremony guiding you throughout the day, announcing all formalities to you, your family and friends. However, if you would like a Master of Ceremonies we can help you to arrange this.
This is entirely discretionary.
