Your wedding questions answered…

Food

When and how do I decide on what I want for my Wedding Breakfast?
You will be given the current Wedding Menu’s approximately 6 months prior to your wedding day, to enable you to choose which dishes would be perfect for your wedding breakfast.

We have separate vegetarian options to select from. We ask that you choose one option for all vegetarian guests. We can cater for all special dietary requirements that we are made aware of.

Can I have a Menu Tasting? 
Menu Tastings are included within the Gold Package. If you book on the Bronze or Silver Package, then you can still have a Menu Tasting to sample the wedding breakfast food at an additional £45 per person

When do I need to decide on what option I want for the evening?
I would need to know what you have chosen before your final invoice is due, please let me know at our final details meeting which will take place a minimum of four weeks in advance of your wedding.

Can I bring my wedding cake to the hotel before my wedding day?
Your wedding cake must be delivered on the morning of the wedding as we are unable to store it on site.

Can you cut up my wedding cake and serve in the evening?
Yes of course. We can also provide side plates and napkins for your guests. The cake will be cut up as per your instructions and served on sharing platters.

You are required to use our cash bar for your wedding. You are able to provide your own alcohol for other parts of the day, however there is a corkage charge attached to this. Please ask for more details.

I do not want the wine that you have included in my package, can I change it?
Yes, you may choose an alternative wine from our wine list, we would then add any extra charge onto your final balance.

Photographs

Where are the most common areas for photos?
The Moonraker front lawn is great for photos, especially a group photo. The walled garden provides a great a space for photos and can be found next to the manor house. It is looked after by our gardener Adrian. If the weather is wet, then the Milking parlor is also great, especially in front of the open fire.

Can my photographer come and have a look around the venue before my wedding?
Yes, we recommend that your photographer has a look around before your wedding. Please check with me that we do not have any events taking place on the date your photographer would like to come.
