Once all the formalities of the ceremony are over your wedding reception is your time to relax with your guests, let your hair down and party! You want it to be enjoyable for your guests while saying something about you, whether from your choice of décor, or the wedding breakfast or both. Ideally, your reception should reflect the overall style or theme of your wedding: ultimately it’s time to treat your guests to a great party: to feed, refresh and reward them for coming to celebrate your special day.
Entertainment, photos and speeches
We’ll help you with every aspect of organising your wedding reception, such as: whether to choose a traditional top table or a modern sweetheart style one for just the two of you. We’ll help you to decide on the right entertainment for your style of wedding: hiring a DJ, booking a band or even a Ceilidh or barn dance!
The two biggest decisions you’ll make when planning your wedding reception will involve the venue and the food and drink. At News House Farm we have one of the best wedding and reception venues around plus help you choose whether to go for an indoor reception and/or an outdoor marquee. Once you’ve chosen New House Farm as your Lake District Wedding Venue we’ll help you decorate it, inspire you with table decorations and how to match your table to your overall style or theme.
The food and drink you serve during your reception and for your wedding breakfast are where most of your budget will be spent – so it’s important to get it right. We can help with advice on choosing your wedding breakfast menu and ideas for alternative style receptions such as fun summer barbeques, simple finger buffets, vegan weddings or long twelve course extravaganzas! We’ll also tantalise your taste buds with some pretty hot ideas for unusual reception drinks so you can wow your guests with something a little different to the usual champagne reception.
