Wedding FAQs 

Your wedding is one of the most special and exciting days of your life and our hotel is here to ensure you can have the wedding you and your partner have dreamed of! 

If you had a wedding booked for 2021 that couldn’t go ahead and have questions on what happens next, take a look at our Covid wedding FAQs below and contact our friendly wedding experts to find out more.  

What Covid-19 safety measures are in place for weddings at the hotel? 

Our hotel has enhanced Covid health and safety measures in place for all our guests and staff, which comply with the Government’s guidelines and are part of Accor’s ALLSAFE Covid policy.  

Our teams will also take extra care to ensure your wedding at our hotel is as safe and enjoyable as possible.  

Will we lose our original deposit for any wedding bookings that need to move into 2022 or be cancelled? 

If you’d like to move your wedding to 2022, you won’t lose your deposit! Simply speak to our team to pick your wedding date and they will arrange this for you, subject to availability.  

Please note that if you need to cancel your wedding our hotel will be retaining the deposit.  

Will our overall wedding price increase? 

We are freezing our current wedding package prices until end of 2021.  

However, if you’d like to change the day of your wedding or the season it takes place in, this would be subject to a price review and we will discuss this further with you. Weddings moving to 2022 are subject to a price increase. 

Will the bedroom allocation or price remain constant with our date move? 

Yes, any bedrooms booked directly with our hotel as part your wedding will be moved to the new 2021 date as per the original booking rates and number of rooms (subject to availability). Bookings moving to 2022 are subject to a price increase. 

Any bookings made via a third party will be subject to their terms and conditions. 

We have booked our bedrooms via Booking.com, or other online third parties, and our rate is non-refundable. Can we get a refund? 

These bookings will be subject to the terms and conditions of the third-party website that they were booked with. Please contact them directly for more information.  

Will my wedding payment terms still be the same? 

Your payment terms will improve! We are now asking for your 50% payment only 6 weeks before your big day and the final balance 14 days in advance of your wedding date.   

Terms and conditions at the time of booking will apply to weddings taking place after 30th November 2021.  

Will our wedding food or drinks menu change? 

At this point, we don’t anticipate any changes in our menus, however, if there are any changes we will notify you as soon as possible. 

Should we start thinking of postponing our wedding? 

We can only advise guests to follow the most recent version of the government’s Covid guidelines. However, we are happy to discuss your wedding at any time and give you the opportunity to discuss other options if you would like to make any changes. 

What will happen if we cancel our wedding? 

If you have any concerns about your wedding date, please contact our team to discuss this further. We’re happy to work with all our couples to find a solution if possible, and deliver your perfect wedding day! 

We have contacted our registrar/church, but they have not come back to us yet. Can you hold the date for us until we have an answer? 

Yes! We will provisionally hold the date for 7 days. At this stage, you’ll then need to let us know whether you’d like to keep the date or work with you to find a new date. 

Will all my wedding payments be moved across to my new date? 

Yes, absolutely! All payments will be moved to your new date. 

My wedding guest numbers are going to decrease as a few of my guests will not be able to make it. Can we amend or reduce our package? 

Wedding guest numbers will need to comply with any government guidelines in place at the time. However, we will allow guest numbers to be reduced by 10% for any weddings taking place in 2021 if you need to change this.
