The planning and support doesn't end there, in this blog post we're going to tell you all about our personal service and how we support you from the moment you enquire through to the day itself.

First Impressions

Weddings are our speciality, and our team are experts in what they do and pride themselves on taking the time to get to know each couple that they meet. When you first visit the Manor you are in safe hands as one of our Event Managers will lead you on a tour of the house and answer any questions you may have. We like to spend time getting to know you so don’t be surprised when you’re treated to our Chef’s famous chocolate brownie and a cuppa (or a glass of bubbly!) whilst we take the time to talk through how your day could look at Rockbeare Manor.

Initial Planning

Once you have booked, you will no doubt have questions that crop up throughout the planning process. An Event Manager is always on hand to answer your questions, whether you want to call the office or email during unsociable hours because you’re up gone midnight enthralled in planning, we're here for you.

We appreciate that some planning is much better done on site, whether it's to visualise your decor, meet with a supplier or simply show your parents the wedding venue, you can arrange this with our Events Team who would be delighted to welcome you back.

Getting Closer...

Three to four months before the big day, you will sit down with your dedicated Event Manager to plan the fine details. We will cover everything from your guests numbers, itinerary, food and drink, supplier details, logistics, to all the intricate details in between, this is our chance to find out about what will make your day special and for any requests - even the unusual ones (because lets face it, there’s always that cheeky guest you’ll want your Event Manager to keep in check).

Event Manager and the Bride Chat

We will send out all of the information we discussed during planning in the post so you have everything organised and in one place.

On the week leading up to your wedding day we will meet to collect decor and discuss the layout so we can bring your vision to life whilst you’re getting ready. We do our best to ensure continuity of Event Manager, but when this is not possible this will be the point we would introduce you to the person running your day if it has changed.

Your main point of contact will be your Event Manager who will also work as Toast Master (or guide your chosen Toast Master), run your Ceremony, ensure you always have your favourite drink in hand and most of all, that you and your guests are having the best time! We will coordinate your supplier and keep your itinerary running smoothly, whilst you lose yourself in the romance of the most unforgettable day, indulge in the most delicious food and drink and soak up stunning views of our Devonshire parkland.
