I saw this offer on the Groupon website, which is brilliant value for a nice hotel in a lovely area (right next to the wildlife park too !). If I was looking to get married in the next year, I would certainly consider this...
Package is for up to 60 guests, but more can be added for full day or just evening reception (see fine print below).
(Don't forget, potentially 5% / £120 cashback through Quidco too !!)
A successful wedding speech can be soft, dry, or pleasantly smothered with strawberry jam. Get the toast right with today’s Groupon: a wedding package for up to 60 guests, including wedding breakfast, drinks, and evening reception for £2400 instead of £6713 at Marwell Hotel.
Hugged by 35 acres of woodland and adjoining Marwell Wildlife Park, Marwell Hotel is easily found just 15 minutes from Southampton, one hour from London, and half an hour from the New Forest. African inspired decor and classically rustic interiors of wooden beams and furniture merge the woodland environment with a sleek modern venue vibe. Up to 60 guests will be invited for a three course wedding breakfast including wine with a choice of three menus compiled with the expertise of local producers. The evening reception features a buffet meal and, while special rates are available on rooms, the bride and groom can enjoy an inclusive night in the bridal suite.
Loved up couples can enjoy a worry free wedding with:
Civil ceremony room hire £650
Court yard hire drinks reception £350
Drinks reception £7 x 60 = £420
Room hire (Breakfast and evening reception) £850
Three course wedding breakfast £38 x £60 = £2280
