*Timings for the day are crucial for many reasons, if you have a Registrar booked to conduct your ceremony at the Hotel, the ceremony must start on time due to their schedule and commitment to other ceremonies elsewhere on the day.
*We recommend anyone wishing to book accommodation do so as soon as possible – after the date has been confirmed with a deposit and you have received the accommodation email from reservations.
*The Hotel cannot be held responsible for accommodation being fully booked.
*Minimum numbers apply for certain periods.
*All bookings must comprise a reception drink, wine with the meal, drink for the toast, 4/5 course wedding breakfast menu (depending on your choice of Menu A) and an evening buffet/bbq for each adult guest attending the whole day and evening reception. 100% catering is required for all evening buffets/bbq’s. If any product is unavailable, we will endeavour to substitute it with a similar product and notify you of the change,
*All catering and liquor must be provided by the Hotel with the exception of the traditional wedding cake.
*Drones may only be used for the wedding videography/photography with the correct license and insurance held by the pilot. Copies of these documents will be required by the Hotel prior to the wedding day.
*The Hotel does not allow firework displays or Chinese floating lanterns due to the surrounding nature reserve and local residents.
