We are able to offer exclusive use of the ground floor of the hotel of Aylestone Court which provides a classy elegance with privacy to ensure your special day really is the best day of your life.
Whether you are planning to hold your entire day here – from ceremony to nightfall – or treat your guests to a wonderful wedding reception, we can offer discounts on overnight rooms to complete the exclusivity. And, with the option of late checkouts after a lazy breakfast the next day, your wedding with us could feel like your own special house party.
We do not believe in pre-set wedding packages; we prefer to offer guest-centred occasions where we will work with you to create the very best day for you. Your ideas and tastes in relation to food, table decorations and all the other details of your day will lead every decision and we will support you in ensuring your wedding is just what you want, every step of the way. Having agreed the final menu, you will be invited to a discounted taster meal to ensure that everything will be as you would like.
The gardens at Aylestone Court add beauty, colour and an extended space for you and your party. The courtyard patio leads onto the lawn which is the perfect place for giant garden games, while the walled garden is an oasis of calm providing a more peaceful environment especially in the afternoon sun. Watching the sun setting softly over the cathedral city really is a beautiful way to close the day and start the evening entertainment.
Our outside space can also be transformed with a marquee or other canopies and we work with local suppliers to ensure that the space is made perfect for you. Our entertainment licence enables you to arrange for live or recorded music to be played to add an extra element to your celebration.
Here are some elements previously created as part of other wedding arrangements to whet your appetite…
