Planning a Wedding can be overwhelming at times, which is why your dedicated Wedding co-ordinators are on hand at every step of the Wedding planning journey, to help take the stress away. If you’re in the process of planning your Wedding day with us here at Mytton Fold, or you’re still searching for your dream venue – you can find some helpful tips within our frequently asked questions below.
Can I provisionally hold a date with you?
Here at Mytton Fold, we know that there’s plenty of contributing factors to getting the perfect date for your Wedding day. That’s why we enable all couples to hold a provisional date with us for a period of two weeks, free of charge. This gives you peace of mind to know that your preferred date is secure, whilst you confirm your civil/church ceremony date and time, and research or book any other Wedding suppliers at this stage. If you require any other information about your Wedding during that two-week hold, then our Weddings team will be more than happy to assist.
Is the venue licensed for Civil Ceremonies?
Absolutely! Whether you decide to hold your Civil Ceremony here at Mytton Fold, or opt for a church Ceremony, you will need to book your Civil Ceremony date and time in advance yourselves. We advise that you contact Lancashire County Council to request available time slots on your provisional Wedding date as soon as possible, to ensure you get your preferred ceremony time. Please be aware that there is a fee payable to the Ceremonies office for the registrars to perform the Civil Ceremony here at our venue.
Can we get married outside?
If you’re planning a Spring or Summer Wedding, then you might want to consider getting married outside, and we can accommodate that. There’s no shortage of stunning views across the Mytton Fold grounds, though many couples opt for our Ceremony pagoda, nestled in the gardens, across a small bridge, with plenty of character,
When you choose to get married outdoors, your chosen venue dresser will set up our outdoor area ready for your Ceremony, before turning this around during your drinks reception, ready for your Wedding breakfast settings.
If the indoors is more your style then you can choose to have your Ceremony in your choice of the Ribble Suite, seating 70 guests or our Abbey Suite, accommodating 180.
How many guests can you accommodate in the day and evening?
We can set up our function spaces for the smaller, more intimate parties, as well as those larger Wedding celebrations too. We are licensed to hold Civil Ceremonies in the Ribble Suite for 70 guests, and 180 guests in the Abbey Suite. We can also seat 180 comfortably for your wedding breakfast in the Abbey Suite, and can also accommodate 250 guests here, for your Evening Reception.
Will our wedding party have access to accommodation onsite?
When you book your Wedding day with us, we hold a minimum of 20 bedrooms for you and your guests on the night of your wedding. We have 34 en-suite rooms in total, along with our two luxury suites. A night’s stay in your choice of bridal suite is included within your Wedding package, complimentary for the night of your Wedding! Any guests from your Wedding party wishing to stay with us will receive our discounted wedding rate, for use across our classic rooms, executive rooms, family rooms, accessible rooms and pet-friendly rooms.
Are there areas for the bridal party to get ready in the morning?
At Mytton Fold, we have our very own glam room next door to the bridal suites, dedicated to our Bride Tribes. This room includes dressing tables, complete with mirrors and stools, along with additional floor length mirror, and is accessible from first thing in the morning on the date of your Wedding. If you’ve booked hair and make-up already, that’s no problem; your make-up artist and hair stylist can join you in the glam room, as you and your bridesmaids celebrate the morning, getting ready together.
What menu options can we choose from for our Wedding Breakfast?
Our Banqueting Chef and team update our Wedding menu annually, offering a range of flavours, styles, and dishes for you to choose from. Included in the Mytton Fold Wedding package is your choice of starter, main course, and dessert from our menu for your full wedding party.
Should you wish to have two choices for your guests, this can be upgraded for an additional fee. We also offer a range of canapé options for your drinks reception, and a homemade sorbet course, which can both be added to your package, and viewed on our Wedding menus.
We do host ticketed menu tasting evenings throughout the year, offering you the chance to bring friends or family and select a variety of dishes from our Wedding menu to sample, with a welcome drink and range of canapés included too, helping you decide your favourite menu items ready for your Wedding breakfast.
If you’re looking for something a little more personal, perhaps the two of you have a favourite dish, a style of food that reminds you of a holiday together, then our team can work with you to assist in creating a bespoke menu and dishes that suit your requirements.
How flexible are you with timings of the day?
Our dedicated Wedding Coordinators are on hand to ensure the full timeline of your day suits your requirements. Once your Civil Ceremony and registrar are booked, our Weddings team can advise on timings for the remainder of the day, including your drinks reception, photographer slots, Wedding breakfast and speeches.
Should you have any required time frames to meet, for entertainment or similar, our team can work together to help accommodate this, whilst the rest of your day still flows seamlessly.
Can I bring my own decorations or entertainment?
You are more than welcome to book your own bands, artists, photo booths or additional entertainment for your Wedding day with us here at Mytton Fold. All we ask, is that your suppliers send us a copy of their Public Liability Insurance and can evidence that their equipment is PAT tested.
