Wookey Hole Caves Wedding Venue
Wookey Hole Caves boasts the most beautiful rock formations of any cave in England.
With a choice of three chambers, this is an unusual and magical venue for your civil ceremony wedding.
Amongst the stalactites and stalagmites carved by the River Axe over millions of years you can stand within the Mendip Hills, surrounded by clear pools, dramatic ancient rock formations and soft candlelight and make your vows. The largest chamber will hold up to 100 guests, but the caves are also intimate enough to offer a ceremony for just a few people.
The Caves are available from 5.00pm onwards, purely because we are open to the public and weddings take place from 5.00pm. If you are holding your Reception with us too, this usually takes place in our Captain Jack’s Restaurant, and is open until midnight.
During December and January we are closed to visitors midweek, so during this period we can offer weddings at an earlier time.
We can cater for up to 200 guests in our Restaurant, from a buffet through to a formal sit down meal.
We have menu suggestions, or, if you have something specific in mind our Catering Manager can cost this for you.
We have ample space to accommodate a disco or live entertainment/band. We can recommend a DJ if necessary, we also know a very good magician and Jack Sparrow character! You could even hire the Wookey Hole Witch, Play Areas and Penny Arcade!
The Wookey Hole Hotel is available to book; we can block book rooms for you at a preferential rate. There is a late bar which you can use after the Restaurant has closed.
The price to marry in the Caves is £1400.00 + vat (wedding only) & £1200.00 + vat (if you hold your reception with us plus the catering costs) and includes the following:
- Hire of the Caves
- All candles/lighting
- Tables and chairs (for Bride and Groom)
We scatter the Chamber you marry in with tea light candles, it looks amazing and has great atmosphere. We can change the colour of the lights, depending on which Chamber you use, we have an on-site Electrician who can discuss your lighting requirements with.
There is a fee payable direct to the Registrar for the cost of the ceremony, their contact details are 01749 343928 or email Shepton Mallet Register Office SheptonRO@somerset.gov.uk – the date needs to be checked with them to ensure they are free.
If you are looking for a venue with a difference, something out of the ordinary or if you just have a ‘thing’ for going underground, then look no further.
We recommend you come and view the Caves and facilities; we are flexible on days/times.
