HOW DO I BOOK THE VENUE?
The first step of booking is to ask us if your chosen date is available. Please email us with your chosen date and we will confirm via email if the date is available. We can then hold the date at no cost for a period of 7 days. During the 7 day period you will need to read and agree our terms and conditions, book your registrar and purchase wedding insurance that must include guest public liability (against any damage your guests may cause).
Once we have received your signed terms and condition, registrar's confirmation and a copy of your wedding insurance, we will confirm your date. At this point your date is booked on our calendar and we will issue an invoice for 25% of the total price with the balance being paid 16 weeks before your event.
Weekend wedding access on the Friday for set up is from 10am - 5pm.
For Day rate Weddings and Midweek, access is from 8.30am on the day of the wedding for set up.
CHANGING YOUR DATE
As long as we can accommodate you, you can change your date.
We have a list of suppliers that have worked well at the venue before. Alternatively you are welcome to bring in your own suppliers. Suppliers must provide public liability certificates / food hygiene certificates. We advise suppliers who have not been to the venue to contact us to organise a viewing of the Estate.
There is no electricity in the Redwoods - we have a portable PA system that can be used to play music via ipod/phone etc. Most couples use this for music down the aisle. Please request this if you wish to use it.
Acoustic music also works well in the Redwoods.
You may have a band/acoustic music in the meadow during the afternoon. If you are having an evening reception in the meadow with music, please let us know and we will apply for the event notice.
We have a guest fridge and chest freezer for your use in the kitchen.
Tablecloths / Tables
We do not supply tablecloths, ask your caterer to provide these.
Highchairs and baby changing
We have 1 high chair and baby changing facilities.
Crockery, cutlery and glasses
Your caterer will supply these.
Two Woods is not responsible for the cleaning of glasses and crockery bought in by outside suppliers.
We are happy for you to decorate the barn, woods and meadow, but please do not put nails in walls or trees.
You may have real flame candles within the barn area as long as they are in a container, such as jam jar or glass holder.
Candles must not be placed on the floor.
We supply real flame candles for the lanterns in the Redwoods and will light them before your ceremony.
Services of the gator and driver are a courtesy to transport your less abled guests and bridal party to the ceremony area.
The gator is not available to move items/alcohol or decorations or services around the estate. This is the responsibility of the bridal party.
ALL BOTTLES AND PACKAGING BROUGHT IN BY THE COUPLE MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE ESTATE.
All rubbish, flowers, foliage, candles, candle holders and favours, must be removed from the Estate by 1pm the following day for the weekend and day rate weddings. Same day removal for all other weddings.
Camping for 20 people is included in our weekend rate.
Further people can be accommodated at £10 per person (you will also need to supply an extra portaloo)
There is one portaloo and a fire pit.
One basket of wood is included for the fire pit.
You must designate a responsible person to light and look after the fire pit. We will send you a form for this nearer the time.
You and your guests use the firepit at your own risk
Guests need to bring their own tents or you can hire fully furnished bell tents from local companies.
The camping meadow is for chill out and wind down after the wedding. It is not for continued partying.
Music and alcohol is not permitted on the camping night of the wedding.
APPOINTMENTS AND Visits
Viewing appointments during the summer are usually mid week. Periodically we hold open days or evenings off season for you to visit and plan with family/friends and suppliers. Please make sure you try to attend on these dates with your suppliers.
We can offer a final meeting if needed with couples to go through the details of your day. This is normally done off season before the start of the summer of your wedding. Please let us know if you would like to arrange a final meeting.
You will be sent a blank timeline form for your day. It is really helpful if you can fill this out with as much detail as possible and return to us.
We love pets - dogs, horses, and anything else furry is allowed to be fully part of your day.
FIREWORKs & SPARKLERS
Fireworks & sparklers are not permitted due to wildlife and cattle in surrounding fields.
Sat/Sun Closed due to events on the estate
