2020 summer elopement weddings – one date left

Mid-week summer elopements

Are you thinking of a 2020 summer elopement wedding?  As you’ll know if you’ve looked through the website, we do winter elopements here on Tuesdays and Thursdays from October to April.   You can read more details about them here . You can also download the winter elopement brochure here directly from the website.

What you might not know is we do a very limited number of summer elopement weddings.   We usually only do one per month (yep that’s per MONTH) from May to September so that’s only 5 a whole year – yeah, they’re THAT rare.

You get the full winter elopement package – but in the summer, how great is that?  There are a couple of changes to be aware of.  The first is the summer elopements are always on Wednesdays.

So you arrive on a Tuesday, any time from 2pm, make yourselves at home in the honeymoon cottage.  The following day, on Wednesday get married in the wedding barn at midday, either just the two of you or with up to 8 guests, have your photos taken by the lovely Clare Kinchin our elopement photographer.   (You’ll see lots of elopement pics by Clare here on our real elopement weddings page here on the website.)  After the ceremony there’ll be photos, we’ll pop the corks on the champagne and canapes will be served.  And then there’s more, our private chef will serve your wedding breakfast on the glass roof terrace.

The second change is they cost a lil bit more than the winter elopement, it’s an extra £300 plus VAT for a summer elopement.  The guest charge for extra guests is the same as the winter elopements – no change on that.

Our elopement florist Amanda Randell  will create a bouquet just for you.  No cookie cutter weddings here, every elopement is different from the flowers and cake to the menu, made specially for you.

You can browse through some of our previous elopement cakes, here and here.

You get exclusive use of the whole venue – yes, even if it’s just the two of you.   The only other people here are Steven and I as we live here (hey it’s a tough gig but someone has to do it).  The gardens, the lawns, the riverwalk, the glade walk are entirely yours for the day.   You can see the venue laid out here on our map:

The honeymoon cottage is yours for two nights of luxury.  The morning after the wedding, wake up as newly marrieds (yay!) ready to start your new lives together.   Breakfast on your private deck, take another wander round the gardens –  check out is at 11am.
