Tables & Wedding Breakfast

Table Layouts

We suggest 8 – 10 guests around each table. Tables are either 5ft or 6ft in size and a top table of 10 would be 18 ft.

Meal Choices

You are able to give your guests a choice of two starters, two main courses and two desserts, with an additional Vegetarian option for the starter and main course. If you choose to offer a choice to your guests we require a full list of guest’s meals per table, one month before your wedding and any dietary requirements there may be. The choice of each person’s meal must also be written on the back of the name cards that are placed on the tables during the wedding breakfast, provided by the Bride & Groom.

The Evening Reception

Evening Reception

Before the Evening Reception, we require approximately an hour (depending on the number of guests) to turn the room around for the evening. During this time your guests may use The Party Room Bar, Main Hall, Terrace or residents may go up to their rooms.

Evening Entertainment

We are happy for you to bring your own entertainment which could be a band or a singer, for example. All we ask is that they provide us with a current Public Liability Insurance certificate. Please be aware of the space available when booking your entertainment. Entertainment is to be set up on the left hand side of the Conservatory. Any entertainment booked needs to be made aware by the Bride & Groom that we operate a noise limiter at Mitton Hall due to nearby residents.

Wedding Insurance

Do I need Wedding insurance?

Yes we will only take a booking if you take out wedding insurance. The average cost of a wedding these days is around £20,000. Many people will spend much less than this and others much more, but everyone getting married has something in common – in paying for their big day they are making one of the largest financial investments of their lives.

After buying a house or a car, the other significant financial commitment in most people’s lives will be their wedding day or civil partnership.
