In addition to offering bed and breakfast accommodation, our home and garden is also available for weddings and related functions.
- Small weddings – up to 80 people. We will consider larger numbers by special request. We provide the grounds, you organise the marquee, etc. Our preferred supplier is Scoff Catering (see www.scoff.co.nz) because they provide a high quality service, a good range of menu options and excellent food. Details on the various wedding packages provided here. Our all-inclusive package with Scoff Catering includes venue hire, catering, marquee, tables and tableware, waiting and bar staff. Also, other requirements, such as ice, glasses for the bar, removal of empty bottles, rubbish, portaloos, is also provided. Contact David@scoff.co.nz at Scoff Catering for an overview of wedding packages which include the cost of the venue hire and two nights accommodation in any one of our rooms.
- Preparation for the wedding at another venue. If you have decided to have your wedding ceremony and function somewhere else, the bride and bridesmaids can use our house to get ready for the wedding. In fact, Gerard’s gorgeous looking silver 2000 Jaguar Centenary XJ8 is available for arriving in style at your wedding. The car can take up to four passengers and comes supplied with white ribbons running from the jaguar mascot on the bonnet to the front windows. The newlyweds can also return to our B&B for their wedding night in the privacy of our self contained “gite” in the garden or in our Regency Room or Attic Suite which both make romantic honeymoon suites.
- Accommodation for wedding guests. Whether you have your wedding here or elsewhere, you can use our B&B to accommodate family and/or friends from out of town.
- Wedding photos. Although you may want to have the wedding ceremony elsewhere, you can use our garden for the photo-shoot, with our beautiful Georgian house as a backdrop. Also, professional wedding photographers are welcome to use our house and garden as a set for their photo-shoot. The house lends itself very well to top of the range wedding gown shoots and luxury bridal car advertisements.
