Have your Wedding your way
Your wedding day should be exactly how you want it, which means you get to choose the food and drink you love, dance or listen to the music you like and have the decorations you want without any w££dding pr£miums.
You, your family and friends can take over a whole pub for 3 nights. The White Hart provides a perfect setting and blank canvas for your DIY wedding, the rest is up to you. You will have exclusivity of our venue for the entire weekend and all of the bedrooms, sleeping 40 are included within the price – allowing your celebrations to extend beyond the big day itself.
We are licenced to hold you Ceremony at The White Hart but alternatively you may choose to just have the celebrations here.

Is there anything worse than a ‘wedding package’ where you must have this… if you choose that? And if you want that option, it will cost you twice as much because there’s an R in the month?

Food & Drink
Here’s the best bit about a DIY wedding in a pub, you get to eat and drink exactly what you want. No set menus. No restrictions. No corkage fees.
A wedding’s not a wedding without a glass of fizz or two to toast the happy couple. Having a wedding where you can supply your own bubbles is a good way to keep the costs down. But we’ve noticed that too many wedding venues charge for corkage. Not at The White Hart, you can stock your own bar. So once you’ve paid for your fizz, or any other booze for that matter, that’s it. Nothing more to pay or worrying about how many bottles of champs Uncle Harry is working his way through – and how much it’s going to cost you.
There’s plenty of room in our main kitchen for your outside caterers to provide a sumptuous feast. And how about food for later in the evening…. order in a Chinese or Indian banquet. An ice cream van or a fish and chip van always goes down well in the evening.
DIY weddings are a completely blank canvas for you and your partner to put your own stamp on.
Call or message to find out more about booking your wedding.
Whether you’re arranging a wedding, a celebration, a corporate event or a family holiday, you’re completely free to organise your own suppliers. From caterers, cocktail bars, casinos and classic house DJs to ice cream vans, fireworks and magicians: you get to choose the kind of event you want and the people you want to help you.
Our website will soon be updated with a list of local suppliers who we are working with on various events, come highly recommended and know how to work our venue. Feel free to contact them directly.
