Loseley Park – A Top Ten Wedding Venue

One of the UK’s top ten wedding venues is right on our doorstep and from May 2013, Loseley Park will be making The Great Hall and the Walled Garden exclusively available for wedding parties on Fridays and Saturdays. There are also some reduced prices available for remaining Fridays in 2012.

The exclusive use means that wedding parties will be completely private, allowing couples and their families to make the most of the fantastic venue and facilities, something that Loseley owner, Michael More-Molyneux thinks is important for those planning weddings at venues that are often open to the public.

Planning your off-peak wedding

Financial restrictions, working times and short lead times have resulted in a growing number of couples booking weddings in autumn and winter as well as on weekdays rather than the traditional Saturday. Winter weddings have become particularly popular, and Loseley is the idea venue with its wood-panelled Great Hall, roaring fires, mulled wine, towering Christmas tree and picturesque landscape. Couples can have the best of both worlds, with a romantic winter wedding followed by a winter sun honeymoon.

Guildford couples who are planning to marry will spend around £11,000 on their wedding – the UK average, and an off-peak wedding can significantly reduce that amount if you plan carefully and look for the best deals.

Counting the Cost

It can be five times cheaper to book your wedding for a Tuesday in February, rather than a Saturday in May, according to Loseley Park, and with many couples planning their wedding on a budget, it’s not surprising that off-peak weddings are more common. Couples still want a beautiful venue, excellent management and great-quality food and drink, however, and this is something that Loseley Park has in abundance.

Holding more than 80 weddings each year, the wedding staff are experienced, efficient and very happy to talk about your requirements and organising any touches you need to make your day perfect – as the glowing wedding testimonials confirm.

Local venue – local touches

Licensed to hold civil ceremonies for up to 100 guests, Loseley is the perfect local venue, and with caterers using local ingredients wherever possible, and able to advise you on the best local suppliers for all your wedding-day requirements, you really can keep everything under control.
