Some helpful information about Garthmyl

Marquee Setup

The hire cost applies to the hire of the entire Hall and grounds for 48 hours over a weekend or midweek, including all bedrooms inside the Hall. You are then free to choose whatever suppliers (one of our four set caterers, musicians, photographer, decor etc.) you wish, meaning that you are in complete control of your budget and can tailor your wedding to your tastes. We can always make some recommendations if needed as we are lucky enough to regularly work with some amazing suppliers!

With the accommodation, it is up to you whether you incur the cost yourself or pass on that cost to your guests that are staying.

We use 120cm size for our rounds and 70cm x 108cm for trestles.

We have two small semi-circle tables that can be used for cakes and guest books.

We provide white table linen for round tables, if you are interested in coloured linen please speak to your coordinator for options or we recommend looking at Table Alchemy. 

Yes, you can have any sort of configuration you would like but we only provide round tables, anything else you would have to hire in.

No, we do not provide this.

We provide plain white crockery and chrome cutlery but if you would like something different you are very welcome to hire this in.

We put the tables out according to your table plan and then the caterers lay the tables. You will be responsible for place names, favours etc.

We allow non drip candles on the tables during the meal but they will need to be extinguished at the end of the meal. You cannot put candles on the Ballroom mantelpieces or the stairs. 

We don’t have a PA system that can be used for music or microphones for speeches, we work very closely with Ed Tuffin who is the go-to-guy for all of your light and sound needs. Please contact him at ed@ejthire.co.uk or 07792 250145. 

All music must be turned off by 12 midnight sharp, please pass this onto your band or DJ prior to the day, if they want to do ‘one more song’ then this must be played prior to 12am. The Cellar Bar can be used to finish off the night for guests staying in the Hall until 1am. 

We get asked this a lot. As a rule, we only really allow fireworks on New Year’s Eve and Bonfire night, but if fireworks are an absolute must for your big day, then we would need to ask permission from the neighbours and local farmers due to animals being in close proximity to the Hall.

Yes – a number of our guests have done this at the front of the Hall and it looks great!

We allow only natural dried petals for confetti to be used outside, but we do not allow glitter bombs or Chinese lanterns.

Our bar licence runs until 12:00am

You can arrive from 2pm the day before and depart by 12pm the day after the wedding.

We allow the couple themselves to bring a well behaved dog with them.

Drinks

The only drink we allow you to bring in is wine for the wedding breakfast and toast drink for a corkage charge of £10 per bottle, any other drinks must be purchased through us. There is a limit of 100 bottles that you can bring in, we recommend basing wine on ½ bottle per guest and six glasses of fizz per bottle for your toast drink. 

You are welcome to bring in fizz to enjoy in the morning whilst getting ready.

Yes, all bars accept card payments alongside cash.

Accommodation

You will have exclusive use of all of the bedrooms within the Hall itself, which is included in the hire price, but the new accommodation is hired additionally. You will be given a date by which you will need to let us know whether or not you require The Stables or The Boathouse accommodation, and if you do not go ahead we reserve the right to hire it out as holiday accommodation. Anyone staying on this basis however will not have access to the Hall so will not infringe on your wedding.

We have two single put-up beds for children and a travel cot which can be allocated to any bedrooms on request. 

Yes you can, depending on availability.

You’re welcome to provide your own items for a continental breakfast if you wish, we highly recommend delegating a friend or family member to oversee this for you – or we can provide a member of staff for a small fee. 

You as the couple will need to book the registrars, you can do that by visiting here. Equally if you are having a celebrant ceremony or church service, you will have to make all the appropriate arrangements. 

It depends if you have any readings or not, but the main structure of the ceremony takes 20 minutes. Readings etc can take this up to 30 minutes.

Of course! We have been fortunate enough to work with some fantastic suppliers over the years, you can view our suppliers here

We ask that all guests that are not staying over at the Hall leave by 12:30am
