Weddings - The Tithe Barn – Terms & Conditions

Provisional Bookings
A booking is deemed to be provisional until the required deposit is received. Symondsbury Estate will accept a provisional booking but should another client subsequently wish to book and confirm the same venue on the same date before the deposit is received no guarantee about availability can be made.

Deposit and Payment
A booking is not confirmed until the appropriate deposit has been received. A non-refundable deposit of 25% is required to secure the booking and is part of the confirmation. A £500 deposit on a separate cheque is required against damage to the property or violation of the noise curfew. The damages cheque will be returned (or destroyed) at the end of the rental period. In the unlikely event of any damage being done or the property being left in an unsatisfactory condition, the owners reserve the right to impose a reasonable charge to return the property to the condition it was in at the beginning of the let. The balance of the total amount will be payable 60 days prior to your wedding.

This will stay out for a maximum of 2 hours; it will then be packed away by our wedding coordinator or catering team.

We strongly recommend that you take out private insurance to ensure that you can meet any cancellation charges in the unlikely event that you need to cancel your event.
