We held my daughter's wedding reception at the Crown, in a marquee in the grounds. About 120 guests. It was a great success. My daughter and her fiance were opposed to the conventional wedding industry solutions, and the Crown came up with the goods, very sympathetic to an alternative approach, went to great trouble to source interesting local food, as opposed to the standard airline-style wedding meal. The green outside the pub was a lovely country setting, suitable for chatting and singing and jollity, children just ran around and played. Then we sat down for the meal and after the speeches when the lights and the sun went down the heated marquee was transformed into quite an atmospheric party venue with a band and dj until 2am.
Cost was moderate -- food around £20 a head, plus £2600 for a marquee with dance floor, plus booze where we spent most of our money, ie the important bit! Then of course there was the vintage bus from Huntingdon register office, the car, the photographer, the band, the suits etc etc etc etc. Move on.
Result, happiness, a big part of this due to the diplomatic skills of manageress Colombe, which believe me you will need and appreciate! She also did the flowers, very stylish and fashionable chose exactly the same ones I saw outside Liberty in London the day before we came down.
