When it comes to planning a wedding, there are many things to worry about, but the season shouldn’t be one of them. Winter in the Midlands is beautiful, especially when your venue is Granny Mouse Country House and Spa.
As a bride, your checklist probably poses a ton of worries for you, so why not ask for help from those who are good at giving it. Our trained in-house wedding planning team will assist in making your big day, a dream come true!
In the winter months, from Mid-May to end of August, the chill in the air thickens and may pose a risk to the comfort of your wedding, unless it is carefully planned.
According to Ane du Preez, Grammy Mouse Country House & Spa Banqueting Manager, “for winter weddings, we suggest the wedding ceremony be held in our beautiful iconic chapel that fits up to 120 people as it overlooks the stunning Caversham Valley providing a stunning view, but is also cosy and fits perfectly into a country-style winter wedding.”
For the reception, Granny Mouse offers two main function rooms that are not only cosy, but provide an intimate setting for toasts, speeches, all the fun formalities and of course the delicious meal.
Choose from the Eaves Restaurant, for smaller groups or the Caversham Room that can seat 120 people.
The Chef at Granny Mouse has a wide selection of menus to suit couples’ requirements depending on what kind of wedding you’ll be having, because for many couples, the food is what makes the day.
The bride, groom and guests are usually hungry after the long day of prepariations, so a delicious hearty selection is ideal in the winter months. Steer towards selecting an option that includes roast meat, casseroles, warm pastas, curries or the likes, with a wide variety as to cater for all palates. Opt for a dessert that is warm and sweet like South African favourites, Malva Pudding and custard or an oven tart that is sure to warm guests.
Our most popular wedding package is the Emerald package – our most inclusive package – that is perfect for making a weekend of it. The specially designed package is aimed at a bridal party that wants exclusivity of the property and includes a food selection for 71 people made up of Friday night dinner, breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning for 71 people, a gourmet finger lunch at lunchtime on Saturday, Canape’s at the reception on the wedding night, a 4 course plated meal for 120 people, a cheeseboard for late night nibbles and a country wedding cake amongst others.
