No Ordinary Love1st February 2021
Amy has been looking at the current guidelines for each alert level in Wales and what that means for weddings in the near future.
Twenty-twenty saw so many of our wedding couples postponing or cancelling their big days and 2021 has not seen much change with the impact still affecting weddings. The ever-changing guidelines for brides and grooms in Wales is really confusing couples. Here at Lysaght we wanted to create packages to help take the strain from your planning and the never ending changes affecting you and your loved one. Designed around the current alert levels in Wales these packages are prefect for those of you that have itchy feet and cannot wait any longer.
While getting married with just two people and a couple of witnesses is not for everyone, for those wanting to lock down your love right now there are ways to make this happen. Alert level four states that weddings can only take place in a registry office and a place of worship providing they are permitted to open. Mansion house is still open and accepting bookings for weddings. You would need to give notice of your wedding day and follow all the guidelines including maximum capacity that the staff have put in place. Places of worship are very similar and you would have to discuss options with the person in charge and follow all set guidelines on the day.
When Wales is moved to alert level three and we can accept wedding ceremonies again, we are ready to go. 'A Vow To Be Together, Always' is a package for a ceremony for up to 40 people in the Lysaght Ballroom. We have created this ceremony package for you to get married with 40 loved ones to share your special moment and exchanging of vows for just £399.
When Wales moves to alert level two, Lysaght will be able to open. For couples who are getting married in level two our Entwined package for a wedding reception of 15 people in Level 3. The package includes a three course meal and even a sparkling 0% drink for the toast, use of the Ballroom for your first meal together for 15 guests, three course meal, orange juice and lemonade per person on arrival, a glass of 0% wine per person during the meal, glass of 0% sparkling to raise and toast, toast master, room set up, use of the built in sound system for the first dance, clean down service, use of the room from 3 hours with your day ending at 6pm. This can be coupled with the ceremony package above and you can spend your whole wedding day with us. Enjoy the Entwined Package for £1030.
The Harmony Package differs slightly to the Entwined Package as it allows alcohol to be served with your meal and is perfect for small wedding receptions in Level 2. The package contains everything in the Entwined package, replacing the non alcohol options to a Bellini per person on arrival, half a bottle of wine per person during the meal and a glass of sparkling wine to raise and toast. This can also be paired with the ceremony package so your wedding day up to 6pm can be spent with us. Take advantage of the Harmony Package for £1110.
I know it seems like a long time off but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. When Wales enters Alert level one, we can offer our couples the 'Timeless Package'. This is perfect for a smaller affair with use of the Ballroom for your first meal together, a three course meal with 50 guests, a drinks reception with a Bellini for each guest, half a bottle of wine per person during the meal, a glass of sparkling wine to raise and toast, toast master, room set up, use of the built in sound system for the first dance, clean down service, bar staff, use of the private bar and use of the Ballroom room until 10pm. The Timeless package is available for £2760
With any of the packages above, any couples who have had their wedding with restrictions we can offer the Unlocked Love package. We understand that some couples just couldn’t wait and have made the decision to elope. We couldn’t be more happy for you but we do offer the option of a wedding celebration and have a do over of your special day with your loved ones and have a big party to celebrate. We can still re-create this day of your dreams in 2022 for you to share and a chance to wear your dress and have those photographs with your loved ones.
