Greek Weddings

Yes – Greek people really do know how to enjoy a spectacular wedding!
First of all we are aware there will always be a lot of guests. With a capacity of up to 200 in our West-wing Ballroom and the use of all the Manor’s other stunning reception rooms, we can accommodate all of  your friends and family without it feeling overcrowded.

The service with its swapping of the Stefana, the back-slapping of the groom and the bride writing her single friends names on her wedding shoe are all traditions we encourage – we like to try and please in all areas.

The normal tradition of a beautiful 5 course meal will not cause our award-winning chefs any trouble, they are used to serving spectacular food in very demanding environments so everything will appear just as you ordered. In fact were confident enough to say probably better than you expected. We’re happy to work with you on any special requirements with Mediterranean food – from loukoumades to brizola we’ll be happy to deliver.

Now, of course, we come to the smashing of the plates. Many venues fear this, but if it’s what you traditionally do, who are we to spoil your tradition! Let us know and we’ll make the arrangements.

To round the party off we can help you source your entertainment if you are not from the Cheltenham area as we have a comprehensive list of entertainers catering for all tastes. If you want to dance the night away to the sound of the bouzouki while you pin money on the happy couple, we’ll make sure that it all happens seamlessly leaving you to concentrate on arranging the next couple’s wedding or refresh your memory of how to dance the zeibekiko.
