The ceremony usually takes place at the Prayer Lodge set in the lower
garden, overlooking the river with the magnificent waterfall in the background. Your guests
gather in the Prayer Lodge garden around you, to form
an intimate setting for your wedding ceremony. As a ceremony
location it is truly a unique and special place, allowing
and supporting a deep connection between you as you exchange vows.
It is also possible to arrange a Celtic Blessing or Hand-fasting ceremony. This place has been used by many
in the past as a place to come for a blessing after a civil
ceremony. The hand-fasting would be held in the privacy
of the Prayer Lodge and its garden. It can
also include following the old custom of planting a tree
in remembrance and as a gift to this place. The hand-fasting
and/or tree planting can be added to a civil ceremony or held on its own.
It is a gift to have your ceremony here, for your love for each other to be witnessed
and blessed by the Spirit of Nature - the Waterfall's presence.
There is an opportunity for you and your guests to embrace
this throughout the celebration, to be touched by the presence
of the waterfall.
After the ceremony we can arrange a buffet reception in the lower garden marquee. We can cater for up to 60 guests with a choice of menus. During winter months the tearoom can be reserved for your reception. For an evening reception/function we can recommend local hotels.
Within the Prayer Lodge, we can offer simple accommodation
for you following your ceremony.
You can decorate the Prayer Lodge beforehand with flowers. Ceremonies can be held here between
11am and 3pm. The Prayer Lodge area and garden, if having
a reception, are for your sole use on the day of your ceremony
until 5pm. During holiday periods (Easter, May Bank
Holiday week and school summer holidays) we are able to
have ceremonies from Mondays to Fridays. At other
times we have ceremonies from Mondays through to Saturdays.
