- The DJ (Special Wedding Evening Entertainment Package) is included within this package up to a ceiling of £600. You contract directly with the DJ for the Evening Entertainment on the Wedding Day. DJ fees may increase in later years and on key calendar dates such as New Years Eve and Bank Holidays. The limit covered under this package is £600.
- The DJ is paid his fee direct by you. Irrespective of the amount he charges, only £600 is allowed for within the total cost of this package, towards the DJ's costs. The total Wedding Package cost of £18,675 is split £18,075 to the Castle and £600 to the DJ. In future years or on certain dates you may pay more to the DJ if the DJ's charges are higher than £600. Note you must book your date directly with the DJ at the same time you book this wedding package with the castle. To Book the DJ, you pay him a deposit, with the balance payable before the wedding date in accordance with the DJ's terms.
- £6,900 of this Package rate covers your Guests' and your own B&B for the whole weekend and £1,750 covers the evening meal for 70 guests on the day before your wedding.
- The B&B element of £6,900 covers all accommodation for two nights B&B irrespective of numbers staying. You may invite between 50 and 100 of your guests to stay overnight. The maximum accommodation capacity is 100. See our accommodation guidance notes here to understand how guests may be allocated to the available bedroom stock.
- You may ask your guests to book their accommodation with you, or to book with the castle direct using this form.
- You could even have your guests pay you direct an amount of your own choosing for their rooms, or you could even offer your guests free accommodation - this is your choice. However we recommend your guests book and pay for their rooms direct with the castle at the current wedding B&B tariff. This allows you to make further savings on your Wedding Package.
- When your guests book their rooms at the regular wedding tariff, a greater value in B&B income may be collected from your Guests than your contracted £6,900 booking for all our accommodation. This depends on numbers staying.
- When we receive B&B or D, B&B bookings and income from your Wedding Guests, their collective B&B payments made to the castle are rebated against your Wedding Package total due.
- Provided guests pay for their own B&B and provided there is no added discount offered by you to your guests, the standard rate for the wedding night for the first 50 overnight guests is £75 per guest B&B (based on 2 sharing an en-suite). There's a reduced rate of £52.50 PPPN the night before your wedding if the guest is staying in the same room two consecutive nights. Extras above the first 50 guests / above the first two in family en-suites are £50 per person per night B&B.
- The Dinner on the night is before your wedding is £25 Per Person. This is a further item you may ask us to charge your guests for. The Friday evening meal for all your guests is included within your Wedding Package.
- You can pre-allocate rooms to your guests in advance and give us a list of who is sleeping where, or you can let guests book into rooms of their choice according to availability. If you pre-allocate guests into the most suitable rooms for them, you will need to supply us with a completed SRUM 48 hours before the wedding date. This is how you advise us exactly who is in each room, for fire and safety purposes. We will also require a list of guests' phone numbers and addresses for all guests staying.
- See all our rooms, their capacity, and links to pictures etc, via the Accommodation chart here.

- Above 100, add £17 for the Evening Buffet also, making £104.50 per guest > 100, for guests attending both the wedding banquet and the evening buffet.
