Frequently Asked Questions
How many weddings do you have a day?
Just one! Yours is the only wedding taking place and our team will do everything to make sure your day is absolutely perfect.
Will there be any other guests at Woodside?
If you seek a truly private experience, Woodside can be exclusively yours on your wedding day. When you book exclusive use of the venue, you and your guests are the only people, meaning you have the entire venue and grounds to yourselves, including bedrooms. If Woodside isn’t booked exclusively, there may be leisure guests and functions, however yours will be the only wedding.
Are you licensed for civil ceremonies?
Yes, we have 3 rooms available that are licensed for civil ceremonies, so you can enjoy your special day with us from start to finish. We highly recommend the beautiful Redwood room!
Can guests stay over?
Yes, we have 74 bedrooms and offer discounted rates so your guests don’t have to worry about getting a taxi home. We also provide you with accommodation cards to hand out to your guests so they can get organised and book rooms.
Can we try the food before the wedding day?
Of course! At Woodside, food is really important to us and that’s why we offer a free taster evening so you can sample our cuisine. Our award-winning team of chefs will work with you to create the perfect menu tailored to your requirements.
Can you cater for dietary requirements?
Yes, our chefs can cater for all dietary requirements, so you can relax in the knowledge that everyone will enjoy a delicious meal. Your guests certainly won’t go home hungry!
Will we have a wedding planner to assist us and who will be our main contact on the day?
Yes, our experienced wedding planner will be there to guide you through every step of planning your special day. During your wedding, our in-house Master of Ceremonies will look after you and your guests so you can relax and enjoy yourself.
Are there both indoor and outdoor opportunities for photographs?
Yes, Woodside is set within 32 acres of grounds, with plenty of beautiful backdrops for your wedding photos. There are also plenty of opportunities indoors - we all know how unpredictable the British weather can be!
Do you allow music?
Of course, what’s a wedding without dancing? We have a dance floor and can also recommend suppliers if you need help sourcing a DJ or a band.
Are you a family friendly venue?
We understand how important it is to cater for the little ones within your party, so we offer a selection of children’s meals and soft drinks to make sure they can join in with the celebrations too. We also have giant lawn games which can keep the kids (and adults) entertained.
