To help plan your perfect day



We have put together some frequently asked questions to help you plan your perfect wedding day at Eaton Manor.

Of course, if there is something we haven’t mentioned then please contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my dog attend the wedding?

Dogs are very welcome but need to be booked in advance. There is a charge of £35 per dog, except for assistance dogs.

Are we able to just hold our wedding reception at Eaton Manor?

The venue hire is for 3 days and it is completely up to you if you have your ceremony here or just the wedding reception.

You can personalise your day how you wish. You are not obliged to have a sit-down meal.

Have a discussion with our Events Manager, Abi, who can discuss your ideas with you.

Is outside catering allowed?

We work with a number of outside caterers; however, you are not obliged to use them.

You can bring in your own caterers, all we require is the relevant certificates from them 2 weeks prior to your wedding.

How many guests can we have?

The maximum numbers for the ceremony and wedding breakfast are 120 people.

The maximum numbers for the evening party are 150 people.

If your numbers are below 80 people, a discount would be applied to the venue hire price.

Is there a corkage fee?

We offer a no venue corkage fee for the wedding breakfast, so you can provide your own wine and/or beer for the meal and champagne/sparkling wine for the celebratory toast.

The serving of this will be overseen by your Event Manager.

You will be required to hire a bar for drinks pre and post the wedding breakfast.

What staff are included in the price?

Abi is your Event Manager and will be with you from your initial show-round to the running of the day, so you will always have a familiar friendly face.

Do you have Chiavari chairs?

Currently the chairs that are included in the hire are banqueting chairs.

If you would prefer Chiavari chairs you would need to hire these from a chair supplier. We will happily receive the delivery for you.

Are linen, cutlery, crockery, and glassware included?

No, this is not included in the venue hire, giving you the flexibility to choose your own and create the style you want.

If you discuss this with your caterer and bar suppliers, they will usually include this in their packages.

What size linen should we hire for the tables?

We would suggest hiring:

120” Round for the round tables

70”x144” for the oblong tables

70”x70” to slip the top table only.

It may be a good idea to ask the supplier if you could order some spare just in case of spillages and if they don’t get used whether you can have a refund for them.

Do you have a dancefloor?

Yes, in the Heywood Room there is a permanent dancefloor.

Can we use fireworks?

We do not allow fireworks at any time of the year.

Are sky lanterns allowed?

We do not allow sky lanterns at any time.
