How to Make the Most of our Bridal Suite
We know weddings can require a lot of organising and coordination, so we’re always trying to do as much as we can to help ease the pressure for our couples and make your wedding day as smooth as it can be. One of the ways we do this is by offering an onsite Bridal Suite as part of our Complete Wedding Packages. Parlour, adjoining our reception venue is a light, bright, private space available for couples on the day of their wedding. With lounges, make up chairs and mirrors, it’s the perfect place for the pre wedding prep and a multipurpose space post ceremony. Read on to find out a little more about the space and how to make the most of it.

ONE LESS THING TO WORRY ABOUT
No need to stress over pre-wedding accommodation or figuring out the best place to get ready, it’s just one more thing you can instantly tick off your list when booking with us.
Use Parlour as your base camp throughout the day. Leave your make up and hair spray in there, and pop back at anytime you’re needing a little refresh!
VENUE SNEAK PEEK
Since you’re right next door to where your reception is going to be held, your perfectly placed to do a little sneak peek of the space before guests arrive. You could even get some bridesmaids shots in the garden before you get dressed.

LAST MINUTE ESSENTIALS
With our fave wedding boutique The Whole Bride, literally right next door, it’s perfect for any of those last minute wedding essentials or accessories (think ring boxes, silk ribbon, confetti and clear umbrellas!)
No need to panic about leaving late or unexpected traffic on the way, you’re already at the venue!
SUPPLIERS ARE FAMILIAR
Suppliers who work with our couples regularly know and love the space. They are familiar with it, so there’s no time wasted in planning where shots will be, like there may be when booking an AirBnB.
OUR TOP TIPS TO MAKE THE MOST OF OUR BRIDAL SUITE
- Arrive early, make the most of your time, and take the spare time to chill out with a cup of tea.
- Order some food and drink in advance from the neighbouring cafe, Kiosk, so it’s one less thing you have to worry about doing on the day.
- Get the perfect pre-wedding pump up playlist ready to go (again, our gals at The Whole Bride have you covered here with the most amazing Wedding morning playlist.)
- Think about how best to use the space that suits you. Maybe the space is better for the Groom and Groomsmen then the Bride. Maybe it’s the place the baby sitter can hang with the kids for a bit. Maybe it’s a quiet space for you to have a moment with your kids, or your bridal party.
