MIDWEEK WEDDING OFFER - 2023 & 2024
At Owlpen we understand that it is sometimes easier to see just one quote, instead of having to work out lots of different costs per head. In recognition of this, we offer a midweek wedding package which keeps things simple.
Our midweek wedding package includes the following benefits:
Use of the estate for two nights, where required. We invite you to arrive the day before your wedding, to give you an opportunity to decorate and get ready for the big day. We can also host a dinner or informal get-together the night before, in the Cyder Barn, if required.
Use of the Owlpen Manor Estate including the gardens and grounds.
Exclusive use of the brand new pole barn, and medieval Cyder Barn, for dining and dancing.
Access to the Manor House itself for ceremonies for up to 50 people.
Wine for 40 people: our package includes a bottle of wine per head (sparkling, red and white), spread out over the reception, wedding breakfast, and speeches. We also offer 'beer buckets' at a discounted price if you would like more variety during the reception, and our fully stocked bar will be open for evening drinks.
Food for 40 people: the cost includes a three-course meal. Choose one dish from a range of options outlined below.
All cutlery, crockery and glassware is included in the fee. Seating is on long trestle tables which don't need table linen. If you would like linen, or prefer round tables, there is an additional fee.
The price for our midweek wedding package is £5950. This price includes alcohol and food for up to 40 people.
For additional guests, the fee is £60.50 per head, £27.50 for children, and £15.00 for kids under ten years old. They can enjoy bottomless soft drinks all day (elderflower, orange juice, apple juice), all included.
If you would prefer to opt for a dry hire option - without food or drinks - the fee is £4250 May to September, and £3250 October to end of April.
The holiday cottages are charged out separately. Our nine boutique holiday cottages can sleep 40 people in total, and cost around £50-£65 per person per night, based on a two-night stay (the night before, and the night of the celebrations).
NB these published prices are valid for 2023 and 2024 weddings. Prices for 2025 may vary.
Choose from one of our best-selling options for starter, main and dessert.
Please Note: You can choose four options from a selection of canapés, in place of a starter. These will be served during the drinks reception. If you would like to add canapés into the mix as well, the additional fee will be £12 per head.

The package explained above includes alcohol for you and your guests during the reception and the meal. In total, it works out as a bottle of wine per head.
The wine that we offer is as follows:
Reception: 2 glasses of Owlpen Manor prosecco
Wedding breakfast: 3 glasses of Owlpen Manor house wine
Usually 1 glass white and 2 glasses red, but it depends on your preference. NB this includes an alcohol-free wine option.
Our house white is a Southern French Sauvignon-Viognier, in the style of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc but with more notes of apricot instead of grapefruit.
Our red wine is a Merlot from the Languedoc. It is a classic, robust red wine which pairs well with grilled or roast meats and root vegetables.
Toasts for speeches: 1 glass of Premium Sparkling Wine
Known as a Cremant de Limoux, this delicious, dry French sparkling wine often wins against Champagnes in blind tastings.
