Unfortunately, we can’t provide microphones for speeches, but do chat to your entertainment providers, as they may be able to help.

Entertainment

Can we have sparklers?
Yes, you can use sparklers outside on the terrace.

We are surrounded by paddocks & horses, so unfortunately not.
What about a confetti cannon?
You’re welcome to use a confetti cannon for the first dance, however we ask that you use clear white paper only.
