We answer some of the questions we get asked about most often but, if you have any others, please get in touch
Do you host more than one event per day?
We like to keep our weddings exclusive so you can be assured that you will have sole use of the facilities and grounds at The Carriage Rooms on your special day.
Do you have standard wedding packages?
At The Carriage Rooms we pride ourselves on being able to provide a unique and individual wedding experience for each and every couple. We don't provide set packages and believe that no two weddings should ever be the same, meaning that even if you or any of your guests have attended weddings here in the past, a fresh new experience is to be had each visit.
Do we have to use your preferred suppliers or can we use our own choice of florist, caterer etc.?
The only supplier we insist you use is our exclusive caterer, Yellow Door. If you desire any help in sourcing other suppliers for any aspect of your 'big' day, we are more than happy to advise.
Do you have a designated room for the ceremony or can we have it outside?
We can accommodate either an indoor or outdoor ceremony - both with equally photogenic, breath-taking settings for making that all important commitment to one another.
Is there a room available for the bride to use during the reception to change clothes or just freshen up?
Yes. We have a discreet bridal room situated just off the main banquet hall with seating, full length mirror and private WC. We also offer overnight accommodation in the form of Montalto House, located on the estate grounds.
Is there outside space or gardens that can be used for drinks reception, photos etc.?
Absolutely – we have a beautiful spacious courtyard, picturesque stable yard, numerous terraces, a walled garden leading out from our charming orangery, manicured hedges, herbaceous borders, water features and more.
Do you offer on-site co-ordination?
Our Venue Manager and Hospitality Co-ordinator will be on hand to assist with setup, your personalised décor and many other aspects of your wedding both in the planning process and on the day itself. Throughout the wedding day they will be present to look after the building operation, oversee venue staff and generally ensure the smooth running of everything behind the scenes.
How many people can you accommodate?
Up to 180 people, including the bridal party and any evening guests.
Is your venue licensed to carry out civil weddings?
Yes. The Carriage Rooms is fully licensed for religious or civil ceremonies, as well as civil partnerships. We can also suggest a celebrant for the ceremony should you require assistance in this area.
Does your venue provide a quieter area for guests during the evening party?
Yes. The Carriage Rooms is comprised of a number of inter-connecting areas which allow the flexibility for guests to mix and mingle as they please without dividing the party. As part of these rooms we have a lounge space situated just off the function room for those who wish to chat over highlights of the day so far.
