Wedding Packages > Availability

Coronavirus has resulted in many 2020 weddings skipping a year into 2021 in accordance with our Coronavirus Policy here. Many 2021 weddings are postponing again, into 2022, so dates are going fast in 2022.

Yellow shaded dates with black font are 'new weddings' that have reserved but not yet 'booked'. Dates with red font and yellow shading are 'pencilled in' transfer dates for our existing 2021 wedding clients who have provisionally reserved a new 2022 date ahead of officially moving their original date. These will be released again if their original date can go ahead.

*** If you are interested in one of the pencilled in dates, join the Privileged List for first refusal on any pencilled in dates if/ when they become available again (or email your wedding planner).

All 'moved' weddings revert to their normal colour according to the type of wedding package booked, once the date transfer is officially confirmed.

Any very light green shaded date is a Ceremony Only Wedding so we CAN accommodate any full wedding package on these light green dates.

Grey shaded dates are where all the bedrooms are booked but we can accommodate a wedding not using or needing any accommodation on these Grey shaded dates.

18/05/2021: If you are interested in a small marquee wedding, please complete an enquiry form / viewing request and discuss dates with the wedding planners. Marquee weddings can only be offered in summer, as weather conditions in Winter will be too windy and cold for an open sided marquee. Below are some pictures of our first COVID compliant 'Small Marquee' Wedding.

Not only have over 100 2020 year Couples postponed into 2021/22 but now many 2021 weddings are postponing into 2022 also. There's a full year's worth of weddings that want to book into 2022 - once lockdown ends. There's a risk 'new' Couples will find FEW weekend dates left in 2022 (nor even, many summer weekdays either). However this will reverse if COVID 'social distancing' is lifted soon, as if more 2021 weddings can go ahead, many yellow pencilled in dates on the 2022 chart will be released again. We still do not know how long 'social distancing' rules will continue, forcing more postponements into 2022.
