We are here to help! Here are our most frequently asked questions from our couples to be, written and replied to by our Wedding coordinators.
Who will be my Wedding Coordinator? And how can we contact them during our planning process?
Your Wedding coordinator will be your helping hand throughout the wedding journey. While we do endeavour to give you the same point of contact during the planning period, if there are any changes we will notify you as soon as possible. We will let you know who your wedding coordinator is around 6 months before the big day.
Is our coordinator there on the day too?
Your Wedding coordinator will be present for most of your Wedding day and you will also have a dedicated Banqueting Manager who you will be there all day and introduced to you prior to the day, usually at your many tasting.
Is there a payment schedule for our Wedding?
To confirm your wedding with us we require a non-refundable deposit, a payment schedule is then sent to you on confirmation. The payment schedule includes a 6 month prior instalment and the final balance due 1 month before your Wedding day. Should your confirmation fall within six months of your wedding date, a larger deposit will be required.
When are final details and numbers needed for our Wedding?
You will both be invited to attend a Wedding consultation with your Wedding coordinator on an agreed date two months prior to your Wedding where your day is gone through in detail. The majority of your final details are required on this date but your final numbers can be specified one month prior to your Wedding date.
How do I arrange our Wedding ceremony?
Whilst we are licensed to hold Civil Ceremonies, these must be organised by yourselves with our locally registry office, Beaconsfield. They are open Mon- Fri 9.30am-4.30pm & can be contacted on 01494 475205 to arrange your ceremony time.
ON THE DAY
What time do I have access from prior to our Wedding?
Access is guaranteed from 10am the day of your Wedding. Where possible we will notify you of the possibility of earlier access but this will be confirmed to you the week prior to your Wedding.
What time can guests check in and out?
Check-in for all guests is 2pm, wherever possible we will try and accommodate early check- ins, but this cannot always be guaranteed and it has to be discussed with your coordinator closer to the time.
Do you have a recommended DJ or can we bring our own? Are there any sound restrictions?
We have a wonderful recommended DJ, Showtime Events & Productions, who work with us closely. However you may bring a DJ of your choice. All music at the Kings Chapel must be kept below 95 decibels and we have a strict sound limiter in place to keep both our guests and our neighbours happy.
Do you supply and decorations or can we decorate the Chapel and outside areas as we like? Are there any restrictions?
Included in every Wedding are our mirror plate centre pieces, hurricane vases and pillar candles. You may use these if you would like throughout the Kings Chapel. You’re allowed to bring as many decorations as you like. However, please be careful when decorating not to damage our beautiful building or extra charges may incur. If you have any queries please ask your coordinator.
Can we have fireworks, Chinese lanterns or sparklers in the evening?
Unfortunately we do not allow fireworks or Chinese lanterns at our venue. Sparklers may be used on site but must be confirmed with your coordinator prior to your Wedding day and the necessary health and safety measures must be adhered to.
Can we throw confetti?
Yes, biodegradable confetti and real petals are permitted. However, any confetti thrown other than this (e.g. foil confetti, faux petals) will incur cleaning charges.
Does the venue allow corkage?
Unfortunately, we do not allow corkage or for you to consume your own beverages on site. If there is a specific product you would like us to supply please discuss the directly with your coordinator.
