A select number of private property owners allow wedding & other events to be held within their properties, each has their individual requirements based on the size and nature of your request and the capacity of the property. While there are benefits to hosting your event within a private home, we want you to fully understand the logistics and factors.
So...what is an event?
If your celebration does not exceed the number of guests booked and staying at the property, you are welcome to make your own arrangements as long as all details of any outside services that will be accessing the property have been communicated to our staff and all relevant insurances have been supplied.
An event constitutes inviting more guests on to the property than the guests that are booked and staying at the property and/or exceeding the maximum number of guests that are allowed for a self managed celebration.
It’s vital you’re completely transparent at the time of requesting the approval, be clear about;
– Potential maximum number of people you plan to have at the event
– Date and time of the event
– Duration of the event
– You list any other details which may be relevant, such as your intention or need to move any large furniture items or make any alterations to the house in order to host your event
