What time do we have access to the room from and until?

Access to the room can be guaranteed from 9am on the day of the wedding. Should the room be available the day before, the team will contact you closer to the event date to confirm.

You are welcome to drop items off the day prior to the wedding and the team will store them. All items left at the clients own risk.

Will the ceremony and the wedding breakfast take place in the same room?

This will be dependent on your numbers and chosen ceremony room. Usually ceremonies and receptions take place in the Adam Hall or the Chapel but we allow plenty of time for your drinks reception to make sure the room is set up perfectly for your wedding breakfast.

The Maximum for ceremonies is 100; who does this include?

It is important to note that whilst our maximum capacity for ceremonies is 100, this number needs to include the Bride and Groom, 2 registrars and a member of staff from Compton Verney along with any relevant suppliers such as a photographer.

Can we hold a civil ceremony only?

Absolutely; we are delighted to share any aspect of your big day with you. Please note that a venue hire fee still applies and we run a ‘one wedding on any day’ policy which means that it might work out more cost effective to use us for the whole day.

How can we use the Chapel?

As of May 2018 our chapel is now licensed for civil ceremonies as well as humanist ceremonies. The chapel is also available for photographs.

May we throw confetti?

Yes, but dried or fresh petal varieties only

Can guests leave their cars in the car park overnight?

Yes, at the owners risk. We ask that all vehicles are collected by 10am the following morning. We strongly advise pre-booking any taxis you may require.

Can we bring in our own caterer or alcohol?

Our in house caterer, Amadeus, is responsible for the provision of food and beverage across the venue. In very rare circumstances, it may be possible to provide your own food however this will incur additional charges and no access would be granted to the Compton Verney kitchen or its equipment.

Corkage is available for more information speak to the events team.

Can we have candles?

Because of the art galleries, we are unable to permit naked flames within the mansion house. You can however use candles within our chapel.

Who decorates our tables?

If you aren’t using the same room for your ceremony & wedding breakfast then you are welcome to decorate your tables as long as the room is accessible.

Will we have exclusive use of Compton Verney?

Compton Verney is an art gallery open to the public from Tuesday – Sunday 11am -5pm. However, the spaces hired for wedding are exclusively yours, and outside of opening hours and between mid-December – Mid March the venue is exclusively yours. We do not however offer more than one wedding on any one day.
