During the evening celebrations, what time will the bar close?

Last orders will be given at 12:15am with the bar closing at 12:30am.

Do I need Wedding insurance?

That is entirely at your discretion. The average cost of a wedding these days is around £20,000. Many people will spend much less than this and others much more, but everyone getting married has something in common; In paying for their big day they are making one of the largest financial investments of their lives.

After buying a house or a car, the other significant financial commitment in most people’s lives will be their wedding day or civil partnership. It's important for you to have the peace of mind that should anything untoward happen (with your photographs, cake or if any of your wedding party become ill, for example), you won’t be left out of pocket.
