Frequently asked questions

Catering

Can we choose our own suppliers?


It is very important that your day runs as smoothly as possible so we choose our suppliers very carefully to ensure you only have to enjoy yourself on the day. You can choose from our recommended caterers and marquee suppliers.




Can we have evening food?


Yes of course. We ask that your wedding breakfast is served in the Marquee but if you want a fish and chip van or a pizza Land Rover later on, go for it!




Are toilets included?


Yes we have our stunning designer toilets by the marquee which have 5 normal toilets and a full disabled suite and baby changing.




Can we have a BBQ or hog roast?


Yes any of our recommended caterers will be happy to provide one. However, we do ask that your wedding breakfast is served within the marquee, just in case the weather is unkind. You can have whatever you can dream of for evening food such as a fish and chip van or a pizza Landrover, yes they do exist!





Marquees

Is the cost of the Marquee included in the price?


Our pricing does not include the cost of the Marquee. As a marquee is entirely customisable by you, the price will depend on your configuration. Either one of our three recommended suppliers will be able to guide you.




Who supplies tables and chairs?


The marquee company that you choose will provide the tables. We supply the chairs for your ceremony and marquee. These are limewash chiavari chairs with and ivory seat pad.




Can we use a venue dresser?


Yes, we have our in house venue dresser and florist, tamarynstreasures.co.uk but if you wish to use another company that is fine.




Can we have fireworks and sky lanterns?


Unfortunately, due to the fact that we are in a rural area with a large amount of livestock we do not allow fireworks or skylanterns.




Can we choose our own suppliers?


It is very important that your day runs as smoothly as possible so we choose our suppliers very carefully to ensure you only have to enjoy yourself on the day. You can choose from our recommended caterers and marquee suppliers.





Booking & Payments

What deposit do you take to book our date?


We take 50% of the hire fee to secure your chosen date. All your chosen drinks will be added to your final bill which is due a month before your wedding. You are welcome to settle your bill early or make any part payments after this to help spread the cost.





The Essentials

When can we come and see Eyam Hall?


As Eyam Hall is still a family home, viewings are strictly by appointment. However, we can show you round at a time to suit you so just either email or call to arrange an appointment.




Do you offer exclusive use?


Yes! All weddings are exclusive use. When you hold your wedding with us the only people here will be your guests and of course our freindly staff looking after you.




Will somebody be there on the day to oversee everything?


Yes! Our staff are always on hand to look after you and either Jeremy or Tamaryn will be here to oversee the day.




Is there parking for my guests?


Yes of course, we reserve our main car park near the Courtyard for your guests. We open this around 1 hour before your ceremony so it is empty for you. It has the capacity for around 40 cars.




Where can we stay?


There is plenty of accommodation in the village and the local area, which consists of local inns, self catering, hotels and even the youth hostel. We have an accommodation list which we are constantly adding to. Unfortunatley we do not offer accommodation in the Hall itself but couples often stay in the super romantic hut which is just up the hill from us.




Can we bring pets?


We know pets are often the most important guests at weddings so of course you can bring your furry friends. All we ask is that they don't visit the dressing room and any accidents are cleared up.




What is your disabled access like?


On the whole very good. Wheelchairs can get mostly round the garden and there are only two steps up to the bowling green where the outdoor wedding pavilion is. Disabled vehicles can be driven to the marquee. We have a full disabled suite in our marquee toilets.




What are Eyam Halls green credentials?


We have banned single use plastics on site and we use biodegradable straws on the bar, because the paper ones go soggy! We recycle and upcycle as much as possibe and we are currently seeking permission for a hydroelectric plant to power the house and weddings.




What time does the bar close and the music finish?


We have a strict music finish time of 11.30pm to keep our neighbours happy. We make sure there is plenty of drinking up time after this.




Are toilets included?


Yes we have our stunning designer toilets by the marquee which have 5 normal toilets and a full disabled suite and baby changing.





Drinks

Do you charge corkage?


Yes we charge £8 for still wine and £12 for sparkling wine. This is per 75cl bottle. The corkage covers refrigeration, glassware and serving staff.




Who does the drinks?


All of the drinks are served in house by Eyam Hall staff. Please see our dinks list for packages and options. A corkage option is available for wine and sparkling wine. All glassware is included.




Is there a bar in the marquee?


Yes, we provide a full bar in the marquee which you can choose to provide for your guests or they can pay via cash, device payment or credit / debit card. A corkage option is available for wine and sparkling wine. All glassware is included. Our straws are also biodegradable!





Timings

When can we have access?


Normally access to the dressing room and garden pub is from 10am but if you have an early ceremony you can arrange to come earlier.




Can we dress the marquee the day before?


Yes, usually we only do one wedding per weekend and the marquee is usually erected on the Thursday before so you would be able to dress the marquee on the Friday.




What time should we ask our guests to order taxis for?


We would normally say around midnight. Please note that all taxis need to be pre-ordered as there is no Uber out in the Peaks!





Ceremonies

Can we get married outside?


Yes absoloutely! Most couples do choose to use our beautiful pavilion for their ceremony, weather permitting. You can choose to opt for a canopy over your guests or you can move to the Hall or the Marquee, should the weather be unkind.




Can we have confetti?


Yes, confetti is a must at weddings but please make sure it is at least biodegradable or even better, dried petals. (we do reserve the right to charge a fee of £100 if plastic confetti is used)
