What is the planning meeting?

Your Planning Meeting is where we go over all your details for your special day. You will be invited to this 6-9 month before your wedding date, and it will last approximately 1-2 hours. We will then invite you to a Final Planning Meeting 6-8 Weeks before the big day, to run over those final details. This usually lasts up to an hour.

What time can me and my guests arrive?

The Bridal Dressing Room and The Clubhouse are available from 10.30am. This means the Bridal Party and the Groomsmen both have a more relaxed space to get ready before the Ceremony. They are both in different areas of the Venue so you will be kept apart until you see each other down the aisle. We recommend advising your guests to arrive 30 minutes before your ceremony time, to allow time to have a drink and take their seats. Accommodation for all guests Check-In between the hours of 2pm and 3.30pm.

Can I drop items before?

Yes, you will be given dates a couple of days before your Wedding to leave us things like Name Places, Table Plan, Favours, Welcome Sign, and any other extras that we can set up for you. Unfortunately, you cannot drop larger items such as your dress/Suits and cake. Please see Décor drop off sheet for guidance of what we can set up for you.

How many bedrooms are there at Hodsock Priory?

Jess, India & Team, We want to express our deepest heartfelt gratitude to you and the whole team at Hodsock! We filled in the feedback book this morning… but there wasn’t room for all we wanted to say. They say your wedding day is the best day of your life… and they aren’t wrong. The excellent care, attention to detail and just immaculate service from you and the whole team helped ensure the “Perfect Day” was a reality and not just a dream. Nothing was too difficult and every single interaction with a team member was so pleasant. The set up was exactly what we wanted, the food was just INSANE and the grounds as we’re sure you know were beautiful as usual. We’re not exaggerating when we say that nearly every single one of our guests were gushing about everything and every one of your team. Jess - You are a credit to the place and so good at what you do. The service ran exceptionally and without a hitch. It is so refreshing to be able to chat away too and have such a down to earth, professional and just fantastic human supporting us on the happiest day of our lives. We’ll always remember your contribution and be grateful. Thank you. India - Likewise. Thank you for being so incredibly supportive, helpful and kind during the afternoon and evening. You really helped make the evening celebration flow and communicated so well and like all others couldn’t have been more helpful. You are fantastic. Thank you. Going above and beyond - We had a phone call from one of our guests with coeliac disease today who said “The service and consideration when it came to my food and getting me what I wanted was better than I’ve ever experienced”. We were also over the moon to hear you rustled up some chips for Grandma Wilding for her main…. she is so beloved and one of our all time favourite humans. It may seem small, but it makes a huge difference. Thank you We’re sure that there are more amazing things as we reflect on the day that will spring to mind that we will gush about… but we’ll save you having to read any more haha! So thank you. Let’s hope we get to return again one day for another wedding or event. It’s such a special place ran by amazing people.
