SO EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT TO DO, WHERE TO BE, WHEN TO PARTY!

WEDDING GUEST INFORMATION

Provide your guests with as much information as possible before the big day arrives. Below are some important details that we believe you should communicate to your wedding guests in advance.  

Dietary Requirements

You may have guests express concerns about food allergies and certain dietary needs. You can assure all of your guests that they will all enjoy a wonderful dining experience. Our chef will take care of any special requests. Guests can expect the same level of service with specially prepared meals, each tailored to their specific dietary requests.  

Directions

Include directions to your ceremony at Avalon Castle, and include maps of the local area for guests who are not familiar with the area. Ensure that older guests are given specific instructions and have a family member ensure that they have arrived safely before the ceremony gets underway. It only takes a moment to have a quick glance around prior to the ceremony.

Limousines are also a bit of fun but be sure to ask the company if they are familiar with our roads.

Local Taxi Information

Some of your wedding guests may choose to arrive at your wedding by taxi or Uber but they may require other forms of transportation on the return trip. We strongly recommend pre-booking return trips. Feel free to ask our staff if you require some assistance with organising transport prior to, or on the night. Ubers dont regulary service the area making them not reliable for pick ups for the end of night.
