Congratulations! We are delighted that you are considering our venue for your special day.

The Mint is perfect for a creative and memorable wedding, offering sophisticated, contemporary event spaces juxtaposed with magnificent historic staircases, decorative archways, stained glass windows and a Juliet balcony.

The raised lawn is ideal for wedding ceremonies, with the historic buildings as a picturesque backdrop. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapés in the stylish bar and expansive sandstone courtyard, before moving to the Gold Melting Room for your reception. Outdoor dining in the courtyard is available on request – price on application.


 

Wedding Reception

The Gold Melting Room features glass, timber and a flowing, curved ceiling – an impressive dining space for up to 100 guests. The stylish bar, constructed against a beautiful old sandstone wall, opens to the sandstone courtyard and is perfect for pre-dinner drinks.

If you prefer a cocktail reception, the Gold Melting Room is an inspiring space for an indoor cocktail party, or combined with the bar and courtyard for larger events up to 250 guests. With the automated cedar louvre screens and motorised glass panes providing direct access to the courtyard, indoor and outdoor spaces are seamlessly linked.
