Q. Can we have candles?
A. Unfortunately not. Due to The Riding School being a Grade 1 listed building candles are not permitted. We can provide fantastic looking artificial candles. Candles are allowed outside within the Walled Courtyard.
Q. Are we allowed to hang decorations from the beams?
A. Yes absolutely, however due to the height of the beams we do require that decorations hung are hung to coincide with the Health & Safety laws and the National Trust requirements. The beams are over 4.8 metres high therefore scaffolding (and a scaffolding licence) is required. We, and the National Trust, work very closely with Fabric Theatre and Distinct Events Solutions who can help you further. Please contact them directly to discuss your requirements and costings.
Q. Do Honeysuckle & Castle need anything from my wedding suppliers, such as photographers, DJ’s and cake maker?
A. From October 2018, Honeysuckle & Castle will require signed Supplier Agreements from your wedding suppliers. This is a document which states our Terms and Conditions, and will need to be signed to show that your suppliers agree to our terms.
Q. When do you need to receive our documents, such as seating plan and Supplier Agreements, by?
A. We will ask for couples to give as many of these details as they can at their final meeting with their wedding co-ordinator (10-14 weeks before their big day), however we appreciate that changes may need to be made after that date. If changes do need to be made, we ask that these are made in a phone call and confirmed with the wedding co-ordinator two weeks before your wedding date.
Q. Why do we need insurance?
A. It’s easy to see Wedding Insurance as another expense however, for how little it costs, Wedding Insurance can offer you a great peace of mind and a financial safety net.
Insurance can cover everything from freak weather conditions, the cancellation of suppliers to damage and injuries caused by your wedding guests.
From our perspective, our aim is to prolong and protect the Riding School. Sadly, accidents do happen therefore, if damage is caused by a guest for example, with the correct insurance cover, you personally will not be the one counting the losses.
