Monday Wedding Offer at The Horn of Plenty, Devon

by Katie 20. August 2014 08:37

We’re often told here at The Horn of Plenty “we’d just love to book with you, but you’re a tad outside our budget – what can we do?”.  So we thought we’d introduce the option of a Monday wedding.
We now offer exclusive use completely free of charge for all Monday weddings over 30 guests – that’s a saving of £1,500 vs a Saturday wedding.
 Cost under £100 per head + accommodation (min 10 rooms), based on an all day Monday wedding for 50 guests

Braxted Parks From 'Yes' to 'I Do' survey

by Katie 18. August 2014 21:20
UK couples getting married older but with shorter engagements, new research reveals
In the past ten years the average age of people tying the knot has increased by three years, while the average length of engagements has decreased by almost a quarter, according to new research by Essex wedding venue http://www.braxtedparkweddings.co.uk/ Braxted Park.
Previous to 2004, the average age at which people got engaged was 24 years and 8 months, (25 years and 1 month for women, 22 years and 10 months for men) but Braxted Park’s research found that over the past decade this has increased to 27 years and 8 months (27 years and 1 month for women, 28 years and 4 months for men).
However, while we may be leaving it later to get married, the length of engagements has decreased significantly.  Before 2004, couples were engaged for around 25 months on average but couples now wait 19 months.  The research revealed that the older the couple, the shorter the engagement seems to be.  Those under 30 years old wait 21 months, but those over 30 are engaged for just 14 months.
Despite these new trends the survey also revealed that many traditions remain; May is still the most popular month to be married and Christmas was identified as the key date for engagements, with a fifth surveyed popping the question either on Christmas Day or during December.  Although 7% of brides now choose their own ring, in the overwhelming majority of cases 62% of grooms still choose and buy their partner’s ring without the bride.
Michelle Rider, Senior Wedding Co-ordinator at Braxted Park, says:
“This research certainly reflects what we see here.  We are inundated with enquiries just after Christmas, many for late spring, and the amount of time between people booking their wedding with us and their big day has reduced.
“If you are planning a wedding and have a short engagement in mind, don’t leave it too late to visit your chosen venue or talk to suppliers.  Our most popular dates are often booked many months – even years – in advance.”
Braxted Park will be opening its gates for its Autumn Open Day on Sunday 7th September 2014. Couples will be able to view the venue and its grounds, meet with suppliers and talk to the team of experienced wedding co-ordinators from Braxted Park.
