After the nuptials, its time to celebrate and at Knockerdown you can create a celebration that will be unforgettable. We have a variety of options for you to use and enjoy.
The purpose-built Brackendale Suite is a large blank canvas which can be decorated as you wish to suite your style and personality. The room comfortably seats up to 100 guests with a choice of formal or informal layouts to suit. The high windows on two sides, allow natural light to shine through and with a neutral coloured interior, it really lends itself to any style of wedding including rustic, natural, modern and contemporary. The Brackendale Suite also boasts a lovely outdoor terrace area, which is perfect for an open air drinks reception.
We also have an additional event space, The Carsington Room. This room can be used to help your special celebrations run more smoothly. Please note that due to space restraints The Carsington Room is only available by prior arrangement when booking with any of our cottages. The Carsington Room can cater for up to 20 people seated or 30 people buffet style. You can either have 20 people seated or leave the room as it is for a more relaxed atmosphere.
Food and drink are a hugely important part of any wedding and our experienced team are hand to help you source the best caterers for your needs. The Brackendale Suite has a full catering kitchen so any caterers will have all the necessary equipment needed to provide you with your wedding breakfast and more. Choose to have a formal three course meal or for a more laid back affair why not have a feasting table for guests to help themselves throughout the day. Hire in food trucks, hog roasts, pizza ovens or keep it really simple and provide your own food. The choice really is all yours but don't worry our experienced team have lots of recommended local suppliers and will be happy to talk through your needs.
At Knockerdown we love a celebration and that of course means Champagne! We can offer a variety of spaces for toasting the wedding couple and can provide drinks reception stations anywhere on site. The Wedding Garden Gazebo and Brackendale Terrace are both popular spots for fizz and canapes. We don't have a licensed bar at Knockerdown so we ask that you provide your own drinks, but you can bring as much as you like and there is no corkage charge from us.
As day roles into night take advantage of the Brackendale Suite to create a great space for a party. You are welcome to hire in bands, DJ's, discos, acoustic groups, or just provide your own amazing play list, we have a PA system that you can use to play all your favourites! Our wedding team can be on hand to switch them room around from your afternoon wedding breakfast and make space for all your guests to gather and party.
Space for snacks and late night food can be made available so you can keep your guests fuelled while they dance the night away!
