We really want you to have the wedding you want so we’re open to listening to your ideas and seeing what you would like. There are loads of places you can get married here. The Wall Garden, an African Safari Lodge, our Long Gallery or any of the reception rooms in the main house, it depends on what you fancy and on numbers, of course. We charge a fully inclusive fee for all our services, so there is no extra charges to get married here, (though you have to pay the registrar wherever you get married). You don’t need to hire in loos, there is no corkage and on your wedding day you can bring your own wine and drinks if you want to. Weekend weddings are two nights only and we offer a reduction for off peak and midweek weddings.
There are no hidden fees.
We supply a marquee which will comfortably sit 140 with plenty of space for extras in the evening ( it can also be reduced for smaller weddings), fully lined with lovely Ivory linings, chandelier lighting, a wooden floor, fully carpeted, black and white twinkly dance floor, heating if required, tables and chairs.
We also provide garden furniture, fire pits and outside candles for your evening do so the outside looks as pretty as the inside. If you want us to, we can cater for small numbers say, up to 40 or so but we are just as happy if you want to have your own caterers.
We have 12 rooms, well not quite rooms, there are 3 large rooms in the main house with huge Jacuzzi baths, 6 African Safari lodges each with it’s own hot tub and three cottage suites which also have their own hot tubs. It’s usual for your guests to pay for their own rooms and we reduce the rates considerably to encourage them to want to stay here to date all our weddings, even the local ones have filled all the accommodation no problem at all. It’s the hot tubs and the Jacuzzi’s that everyone likes the idea off. As well as that if you have friends with tents or caravans etc they would be welcome to stay free of charge, though we don’t have a shower block or anything like that we do have a ‘gardeners loo’ for them to use. It just saves the need for designated drivers (poor dears!) and taxi’s.
While Pentre on non wedding days is a child free zone so our couples can have a romantic break but on your wedding weekend we want you to feel like it’s your home and all your family and friends are very welcome including the little people,bring their toys, spread them around and relax. They’re just kids and will run riot and there’s loads of places for them to do that here.
We recommend what we call our perfect partners, people who’s work we’ve seen and know but you don’t have to use them. I’ve attached their list for you too, so whether you marry here or not they’re great people to use to make your day perfect. We don’t charge corkage for wines, a great saving and whether you want an afternoon tea, a hog roast or a formal sit down we’re here to help and advise but not to interfere.
We all want the perfect romantic wedding whatever our budget, we prefer not to discuss fees with you until we show you around and you see what we have to offer. The one thing we do say is that there are no hidden extras and we know our fees are very favourable when you compare the price of hiring your own marquee and all that goes with it. We take that headache away. Here you can have your own country house for your special day and you can be as daft or as formal as you like. Give me a ring on 07799 887234 any time and we’ll have a chat, we’d love you to come for a private show around, the kettle is always on so I do hope we hear from you.
