Wedding Hotel Lake District

Not all Lake District Wedding venues offer exclusive use. This is a popular option with a host of benefits for your wedding party – but what does it really mean?

What is exclusive use for weddings?

When a hotel offers exclusive use for wedding hire, this means you get the place to yourself for the day. This will usually include exclusive use of the venue, the grounds, the staff and any other features that are available and will usually last for a full 24 hours. This means there are no other guests at the hotel for that period apart from the people involved in your wedding party.

Some hotels may offer different variations on the package. For example, a blank canvas wedding often means you need to arrange your own suppliers for the various areas such as tables and chairs, linens and even the catering team. Other venues will include almost everything for you including catering staff, tables, chairs, linens and other essentials.

Benefits of exclusive hire

There are lots of benefits to opting for exclusive use for your lake district wedding venue. Top of the list is that you don’t have to worry about strangers randomly entering the wedding party, hanging around or spoiling your wedding photos.  You have use of the entire hotel as well as the various grounds areas which means your guests can make full use of them and you can take as many photos outside as you want without anyone else around.

Use before the ceremony

The use of the venue can start before the wedding ceremony so if you are getting married in a church, you can use the hotel to get ready, head to the church then return for the reception.  This makes for a relaxing and stress-free start to the day for either half of the wedding party or both if you like. Wedding cars can be arranged to collect you, take you to the church and bring you back to the venue.

Easier to budget

It is easier to budget on an exclusive use package because everything is included – venue hire, food and drink, bedrooms, service, VAT and all the other elements.  The only things you need to pay for separately are the extras you want such as cars, cakes and additional hire.

Everything in one place

With the hotel at your disposal, there are no worries about people getting lost, heading to the wrong place or not having anywhere to stay.  You can organise the facilities in the hotel to suit your needs, give rooms to guests and not have to worry about losing anyone in transit.

Make it yours

Exclusive use of a wedding venue like Broadoaks lets you make the place yours for your big day.  You can hire suppliers to decorate things as you want or make use of the facilities in the hotel as they are.  You can easily budget for the wedding and not have to worry about strangers gate-crashing the event.
