Accomodation

Whether you and your guests are looking for a room for the night, a base for the whole weekend or you plan to make the wedding celebrations part of a longer trip, there’s an abundance of diverse accommodation options. From simple and self-contained to the lap of luxury, you will find everything your need close to Montrose House. Here are our recommendations, some are just a walk away, or otherwise an easy drive or cab ride.

Bar & Alcohol

Montrose House is a licensed BYO venue. We have 2 bar areas that your caterers can use to prepare and serve drinks to your guests. The bar inside Badgery Hall is perfect once your guests sit down to eat and enjoy entertainment in the evening. We also have the Greenhouse Bar in the grounds which can be used to serve drinks during your garden party.

We recommend that you work closely with your caterer to discuss what drinks you should provide and how much. They can also arrange bar and waiter service so you don’t have to worry about it.

We also recommend that you keep it simple with one type of red win, one white, a champagne for toasts and some beers and possibly ciders. You may want to offer a cocktail for the garden party such as Pimms which your chosen caterer can help you with.

Celebrants

Your ceremony is one of the most significant and special parts of your big day. Your choice of celebrant is a very personal one and will be influenced by your chemistry with the person, the style of your day and if you already have someone in mind. We leave it entirely up to you to select a registered marriage celebrant, however, here are a few suggestions if needed.

From a harpist playing whilst your guests arrived, a string quartet for your garden party to a live band for your evening celebration, your choice of music will set the mood for your day. Given our secluded location, Montrose House isn’t limited by noise restrictions so your guests can dance the night away until 11pm!
