If you have preferred caterers are there any caterers? Also if there is a self-catering option are there anything we need to know re: kitchen/insurance etc?
You can arrange your own caterer, if you struggle to find one I am sure we can suggest one. If we do not already know them, caterers and marquee co's come to visit before the wedding, to do a site visit. Most professional caterers bring everything they need and have their own insurance.

Please No fireworks, no amplified music after eleven pm , no smoking in the buildings. No dogs. No sparklers. No ticketed events. We do expect you to leave the venue as you found it and to have a good breakdown procedure for your event. If you are clear with instruction to the caterers/bar and that the quote includes clear-up and removal of rubbish, then is fairly effortless as this is the bulk. If you do not want to clear up we will and charge accordingly to clear up after you. We provide large general bin and re-cycling bin. Usually copes with 120 ish people. Larger weddings need more bins, discuss with us.
