Frequently asked questions

Here you will find a list of the Frequently Asked Questions about holding a wedding or event at Poundon House.  If the question you have is not on the list, please submit it via the form below and we will get back to you directly if you wish and then can add it to the list for future couples benefit.

Booking your wedding at Poundon

After we have decided to go ahead and use Poundon, what happens next?

We need a signed contract, booking form and the deposit to confirm your date. The booking form and contract define what is included in the price. The balance is due closer to your wedding date.

How many people can fit in the various reception areas you have available?

We have a variety of rooms and spaces suitable for dining and receptions.  These figures are for guidance, you will need to speak to us so that we can advise you better.  (The capacity for the reception may not be the limiting factor on the number of guests attending your wedding at Poundon.)

  • Dining Room – 50 persons
  • Yellow room – 20 persons
  • Terrace Marquee – 80 persons
  • Reception Marquee – 350 persons

If we do not use a room for the Ceremony, does that reduce the cost?

I am afraid not. The cost is for the whole day. We do not have other Weddings going on, so the house is exclusively yours.

Can you hold outdoor ceremonies? What times of the year can they be held in?

If you are planning on having an outdoor Civil ceremony, then they can be held from 1st March till the 31st October.  Using the Reception Marquee  is considered an outdoor ceremony.  At this time we do not have any garden type structures for a dedicated outdoor Civil ceremony.

A ceremony using the Terrace Marquee for seating for your guests and the Yellow room as the licensed room is not considered an outdoor ceremony.

For any other ceremonies or blessings, the gardens are available.  We always make sure we have a solid back up plan (due to weather) and will work closely with you to plan the day that you are hoping for.

What deposit is required to secure the booking?

We have a deposit charge of £1800 inc. VAT.  The balance of the venue fee is required 1 month prior to the weddings.

How do we contact the Registrars? How do we arrange a civil ceremony?

We are part of Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) and you can contact the Buckinghamshire Register Office, Aylesbury on 01296 382 581.  It is best that you direct all your questions to them as we do not want to give you false information.  Please be advised that if you are planning on having two ceremonies on the same day, then the civil one must happen first.

If in doubt please consult the registrars about any details regarding the civil ceremony.

What is your cancellation policy? What happens if the guest numbers change?

Please refer to our contract regarding our cancellation policy and guest numbers.

Do you offer Wedding coordinating services? Is there somebody from the house around on the day?

We do not offer formal coordinating services on your wedding day, but there will be somebody from the house available throughout the whole day to help with any problems should they arise.  On an informal basis, we will liaise directly with your caterers, band and other suppliers  during the day to make sure that everything is running smoothly and will be available to help them if required.

 

If you are having a Civil Ceremony then somebody from the venue will be actively involved in liaising between yourselves and the registrars until the ceremony is begun, and will then be on hand if any guests arrive late so that they might find and join the ceremony.

 

If you wish for something more than this, then we suggest the use of professional wedding coordinators or talk to us about your concerns and we will see if we may be able to help.  We are fully committed to making sure that your wedding day runs smoothly.

 

Is a bridal suite included in the venue fee?

We do not include a bridal suite in the venue fee for overnight stay.

We do include the use of two dressing rooms for the daytime so that you might get ready at the house or use them if you require costume changes during the day.

What extra charges are not included in the venue fee? How do we work out the cost of the venue?

We try very hard to make sure our prices are very clear and below you will find a further breakdown of what they are;

  • Venue fee – £7000 for up to the first 150 guests
  • Extra daytime guests – £20 per head
  • Evening guests only – £10 per head
  • Preferred caterers kitchen fee – £300

  • Bedrooms in the house – £150 (please refer to the bedroom price list for further details)

Can we host an event such as a lunch the day after the wedding?

Yes, it is possible to continue your stay at Poundon the day after the wedding.  As a rough guide line, if you wish for a lunch party we can arrange it from £40 per head, or if you wish to use your own caterers then there is a venue fee of £600.

Can we book overtime or arrange a later finishing time for the wedding?

It is possible to extend the evening of your wedding by up to two hours, but all loud music must still finish by 11pm.  In the past couples have organised silent discos as a means on continuing the party, or just enjoyed a longer wind down period before going home.  We charge £250 per hour for overtime and you will also need to make your caterers aware of your intentions.

Do you need any other info from us in the run up to the big day?

We require a schedule closer to the day, that states your timings for the day, your suppliers (including any deliveries). as well a list of names of all your guests that are attending both the Ceremony and Reception.  This can all be entered using your client account.  Please try to keep your client account updated as it is a really useful resource for keeping us informed of your plans.  The details that you enter are also emailed to yourself for your reference.

Your Wedding Day at Poundon

Can the florist and photographer come and have a look around the venue prior to the day? Can we also arrange a time to bring our parents?

Yes, but again, we must know in advance. We would prefer it if you could arrange all this on the same day.  We also hold venue open days throughout the year so these can be good opportunities to drop by on.

Over what hours is the venue available?

The normal hours for a wedding at Poundon are as follows;

Day Prior –  Mid Morning onwards to drop off items, decorate and stage the marquee, check into bedrooms if applicable.

Wedding Day – What ever is required to make your wedding day, but as a rough guide, access from 8am for suppliers – guests departed by 12am. – all loud music is to finish at 11pm, quiet background music till 11.30pm.

Day After – If you have stayed at the house, check out from the rooms is 11am as we may be conducting viewings from 12pm.

 

Do you have insurance, do we need wedding insurance?

We have Public Liability insurance in case of accidents etc, but it is not wedding or event insurance.  If you wish for peace of mind about your wedding we would suggest you take out your own Wedding / Event Insurance Policy.  There are companies that specialise in this type of insurance.

Do you have a sound limiter in the Marquee, are there any restrictions we should be aware of?

We do have a sound limiter in the marquee, but we try to not have to resort to using it by taking our own readings from the edge of the property throughout the evening and working with your chosen suppliers.  This ensures that your entertainment is not stopped abruptly while respecting our neighbours peace and quiet and meeting our licensing requirements.  With regards to restrictions, the maximum sound level in the marquee is 90dB and we do not permit the use of dedicated sub woofer type speakers on the property as their affect is very unduly disruptive for local residents and all loud music must end at 11pm.  Please ensure that your suppliers are aware of these points.

Can guests get changed at the house?

The 2 dressing rooms in the house are only for the bride and groom and immediate family.  If your wedding day requires guests to have a costume change we can make 2 of the reception rooms downstairs available, but we will need to be informed of this so that we can make sure that the day runs smoothly.

Can we use the swimming pool?

The short answer is no. The swimming pool will be securely gated so as to avoid any accidents on the wedding day.  If you are staying over night at the house then the pool can be available on the other days.  Please speak to us if you would like to use the pool so we can make it available – we have to warn you its not heated!

If it rains and guests are on the Terrace, do you have umbrellas we can use?

Yes, we can provide white umbrellas that we are happy for you to use.

Are children welcome?

We love children at Poundon House and are very happy to have them as your guests at your wedding.  We do ask that you have somebody named as the responsible person for the children, and also suggest that if you have a large number of children attending your wedding that you consider using professional creche services.  Please be aware that the gardens are large and extensive at the house, with all the inherent risks that come with landscaped grounds – a variety of walls, an ornamental pond, trees that could be climbed etc…..

Do you have a PA that we can hire for speeches?

Yes we do, we have 2 x fixed microphones and 1 x wireless microphone to go with it, let us know what you require and we will arrange it for you.  There is a charge of £45 for the use of the PA for speeches in the marquee.

Can we have a pre wedding shoot with our photographer prior to the wedding day?

Yes, but please be aware weekends are very busy throughout the year.  Please contact us to arrange a date and time that is suitable.

Can we use the three Reception Rooms throughout the evening?

The three rooms can only be used by your guests until you go to the marquee.  If you are taking rooms in the house overnight, then the Drawing room will still be available to the house guests through out the evening.  (But not for a party in the house!)

Can we have fireworks, Chinese lanterns, sparklers or flares?

No, we do not allow fireworks, Chinese lanterns, sparklers or flares –  this is non negotiable.

Will there be lighting and signs for the evening guests? Or for when guests are leaving?

Yes, we will have signs to the car park and also to the marquee, and lighting is provided both in the marquee and in the garden.

Can we have outdoor games?

Of course, but we’re sorry that we do not have any.  We are very happy for you to provide or hire in outdoor games either for the front lawns or up at the marquee area.  This also includes bouncy castles etc.  Please let us know what you are thinking of doing so we are aware and can make sure that everything is in place if required.

Can the photographer get an overhead group shot of the guests?

Yes, the photographer can have access to a room upstairs to take an overhead shot of the guests, but the photographer must be accompanied by a member of the family for this. The photographer will need to discuss this with a member of the family prior to the event.

What time must we finish by?

As Poundon House is located on the edge of a village, we request that guests respect those who live nearby and therefore the loud / dancing music must finish at 11.00pm.  We are happy for some quiet music to continue for another 20-30mins to maintain some ambience, but this is not to be heard outside of the tent.  If this quiet music is abused we will be forced to stop all music.  Guests are expected to be out of the marquee and on their way to their respective beds by 12am.

Staying at the House

What are your views on children sleeping in the house?

 

The maximum number of children sleeping in the house is 6.  We consider a child to be under 12yrs old and they are entitled to a free camp bed.  Over 12yrs old they will have to be in either a proper bed or an additional single bed and will count towards the total number of adults.

With regards to the single beds and cots / camp beds, please bare in mind that there is only space for either  one or the other in most rooms.

 

 

How many people can sleep in the house on a night?

The maximum number of adults to sleep in the house is 18.  The use of an additional bed in some rooms is to allow flexibility if you require it in the sleeping arrangements.

Children 12yrs and over are counted as adults.

How many bathrooms are there, and are there showers, or baths only?

There are 6 bathrooms shared between the 9 bedrooms.  3 have baths, 1 has a bath and a shower and  2 of them are dedicated shower rooms.

What time is breakfast served?

You can arrange a time that suits you, between 7am and 10am, and runs for about an hour usually.  In the run up to your stay we will contact you to arrange these details.

Do you have any camp beds / cots for children?

Yes, we have 4 camp beds and around 3 cots at the house.  Please let us know how many you may require when arranging the rooms for your guests and we can also help advise on which bedrooms would more suitable for families.

How is breakfast served, what do we get?

We serve breakfast in the Dining room normally, with everybody seated at on table.  It is a buffet style breakfast consisting of fruit salad, cereal, yogurt and pastries, with then either a full cooked breakfast (sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, beans, tomatoes and mushrooms)  or a lighter breakfast (bacon/smoked salmon and scrambled eggs).  It has to be arranged in advance what you wish for your guests to have and we do the menu for the whole group.  Please note that we do not take orders in the morning.  Dietary requirements can be catered for, but we have to be told in advance.

Can guests who did not stay at the house join us for breakfast?

Yes, this is absolutely fine, we can seat up to a maximum of 24 in the Dining room and charge £20 per head for the extra guests.

What time can we check in to our rooms?

The rooms are normally available from 9am on the morning of the day that you are staying.  Please let us know what time you are thinking of coming to the house so that we can make that there is somebody around to let you in.  We will have a room plan of the house by the front door, with the names of the house guests to help people find their way to their rooms.

How does the bedroom pricing work? What happens if we want a three beds in one room?

The basic pricing structure is as follows;

Standard rate – £150 per night for a double/twin. (Single occupancy 30% discount off standard room rate)

If you want an additional single bed in a room to make a triple  – £50 per night (A maximum of 18 adults in the house applies)

If you need a camp bed for a child – £foc

If you need a travel cot for a baby – £foc

If you use the same rooms for a second night and no housekeeping or changes are required then there is a 10% discount off the standard rate. (This does not apply to single occupancy rates as they are already discounted)

Is the house locked at night? How do we get in if we are coming late?

The house is locked at night, but every bedroom is given a key for the front door.  Please let us know if you will need access to the house either very early or late so that we might be aware of the comings and goings etc.

Do the bedroom doors have locks? What can we do with valuables?

Due to the house being a family home, the bedroom doors do not have locks and we are sorry if this causes problems.  We can make sure that a secure room is made available to you if you wish for one, otherwise we would have to suggest using your own cars.

Do you offer house keeping for the rooms?

We can do, but usually couples prefer not to have it when staying for two nights and we therefore offer a £15 discount on the second night.  We are happy to arrange for it to happen if you want, but the discount will then not be available.  Please make us aware before staying at the house so we can make sure everything is arranged.

Can we have a meal at the house the night before the wedding?

Yes, we can offer private dining in the house for up to 24 guests, in the Dining room.  This is from £30 per head, please ask for menus to see what we can offer you.

What time is check out?

We ask that everybody can be out of their rooms by 11am and that check out is by midday.  We understand that there may be items to be collected from the marquee and that this may take a little longer to sort out, but ask you to be aware that we may be showing couples around from 12pm onwards.

This will allow music to be played throughout the ceremony, (one of your guests will be required to press ‘play’ etc.) and is also suitable to be set up outside if required.  Please have your music on an iPod or MP3 player of some sort if possible, or advise us if not so we can make arrangements.

What are the capacities of your various ceremony locations?

We have a variety of locations suitable for ceremonies, either Civil or blessings.  These figures are for guidance, you will need to speak to us so that we can advise you better.  (The capacity for the ceremony may not be the limiting factor on the number of guests attending your wedding at Poundon.)

The Reception Marquee  can seat 250 guests at 25 round tables with a dance floor and band stage set up.  We can go up to 300 guests at 30 round tables but there would be limitations to where the dance floor may be located.  If you required this kind of capacity we would develop the plans and logistics with you to make sure what you wished for would be possible.

The Terrace Marquee is mainly used for ceremonies and drinks receptions, but can be used for a meal and could seat up to about 80 guests at 8 round tables.

Does Poundon House remove all the rubbish?

You and your caterers are responsible for leaving the marquee in a fit state (we will hoover). We provide rubbish bins for general waste and recycling at the Reception Marquee for your caterers to use.

Yes, Passion For Food and Original Kitchen will be more than happy to arrange a tasting at the house. However, if you use another catering company, we do not offer this service.  Please note that a tasting is only offered once a deposit to the caterer and ourselves has been paid.

At this time it is not possible to heat the Terrace Marquee.

We have two Marquees which are up during the wedding season; The Reception Marquee and the Terrace Marquee.

The Reception Marquee  can seat 250 guests at 25 round tables with a dance floor and band stage set up.  We can go up to 300 guests at 30 round tables but there would be limitations to where the dance floor may be located.  If you required this kind of capacity we would develop the plans and logistics with you to make sure what you wished for would be possible.

We are happy for you to come any time after 8am on the Friday before your wedding day – we know how much there is to do at the last minute and we are there to help!

Is there an easel for us to put our table plan?

We have a selection of free standing and table top easels.  We do not have any boards or frames to go on them so you will need to make sure that your table plan is suitably mounted ready for display.  There are a couple in the marquee available for your use, if you cant find them on the day before your wedding just ask somebody from the house to look them out for you.

Can we hire other linings for the marquee, or additional marquee items?

We offer what is included in the price (as per the booking form) and you can hire anything additional at your own expense, but if there is additional work for us, e.g. removing our lining, then we would also have a charge, so it really is best to keep up informed of your plans. Also, please make sure we are aware of any deliveries that might have to be supervised.

Can we use candles in the marquee and house?

Yes, in the marquee, but we will have to approve the candle holders. We are obviously concerned about fire and safety. There will be fire extinguishers in the marquee, but we ask everyone to be responsible. Candles are not allowed in the house unless we are made aware of them and someone is responsible for them and it has been previously discussed.  Please keep us informed if you have any doubts.  Also, if you have something elaborate in mind, consider using LED candles.

Logistics etc.

The front gates to the house are locked, what do I do?

The front gates are locked most days of the week and are only opened for viewings and events.  If you have arrived at the property and they are locked, then if you look to your left as you look at the gates there is a another set of gates which are always open.  You come through those gates and follow the drive down to the house.  You will find your way to the front of the house.

What kind of power is there at the marquee?

It has mains power running from three distribution boards. All power is distributed according to requirements and any suppliers must liaise with Poundon House to be adequately supervised.

Is there plenty of room for car parking?

Yes we have plenty of car parking and guests can come back the following day to collect the cars.

What are the dimensions of the Marquees? Do you have floor plans for we can use?

Please look at the following link for downloads of all the marquee floor plans

– http://poundonhouse.com/downloads/

 

Can we leave things at the house after the Reception and collect the next day? Can guests collect their cars the next day too?

Yes, this is not a problem. If possible, we prefer you to come in the morning.

Can we have coaches?

Its fine to have coaches doing drop offs and collections from the house.  We have to make you aware that the only parking for them on-site is in front of the house, so it is best if they do not stay at the house during the day if possible.

Can we drive to the back of the marquee to unload items?

Yes, it is possible to drive to the catering area of the Reception marquee do drop offs.  The track to the marquee comes off the main road.  It is about 50 yards to the right of the main gates as you look at them.  The gate may be locked so please come to the house and somebody will open it up for you.

General questions

What access facilities do you have for disabled or elderly guests?

On the whole the site is quite level, and where there are steps we can either provide portable ramps or there will be an alternative route available.  There are disabled facilities at both the House and the Reception Marquee, but please advise us if there are any guests coming who may need additional assistance so we can ensure that there are no problems on the day.

 

We have no ground floor bedrooms available if they were something that you required, but the Bed and Breakfast just 3 mins away does.

Do you allow dogs on site?

The general rule is no dogs on site, but we do look at each request to decide if it may be possible.  The best is to let us know what you are thinking of and we can in turn let you know if it will be possible or not.

How many toilets are at the property?

There are 2 x ladies and 1 x mens, plus 2 x urinals at the Reception Marquee.

There are 1 x ladies and 1 x mens on the ground floor at the house.  This will be adequate for numbers up to 250 guests.

We will provide toilet roll, soap and hand towels for your event.

Can you have bouncy castles, fairground rides or food stalls?

Please do not book any external suppliers with out first running it by us if you think it may be a matter of concern for us – we do not want to have any problems on the day.  We endeavour to help you plan the wedding day that you desire for and are happy for most external suppliers to come on site if they are not going to cause damage or a nuisance.
