Making Gaynes Park Covid-Safe
We have taken plenty of steps to ensure that Gaynes Park is a safe environment for everyone who attends our venue. Here are some of the measures that we have put in place.
• A full and thorough risk assessment and extra measures to make the venue Covid-safe
• Additional training for all our staff
• Adapted our service to continue to deliver incredible events that adhere to the government guidelines
• Additional handwashing and sanitising facilities
• Helpful signage throughout the venue
• Enhanced cleaning measures have been implemented with regular recorded checks
• Fully supporting test and trace
Since March, we have been working around the clock to find solutions for our couples marrying in 2020 whose wedding plans have been impacted by Covid-19. It has been a huge challenge for everyone, at a time of worry and uncertainty. The changing rules and/or indicated guidance or even rumours have made life particularly difficult for weddings which require planning and are such an important life event.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. It has not been easy for our couples, for suppliers, and nor for the venue Gaynes Park. However, we continue to believe in the power of love and altogether we will get through this together.
The Prime Minister’s most recent statement on 22nd September 2020 stated that weddings are limited to 15 people and only indicated that restrictions may last for 6 months if the pandemic situation does not improve. After detailed consideration and in response we have various options we are now making available to couples who have a wedding booking within 12 weeks, currently we are dealing with couples up to 31st December 2020. We will continue to review and monitor the current pandemic situation and will contact you 12 weeks ahead of your wedding.
In order to manage our bookings and postponements fairly, as before we will contact couples in date order of their booked wedding date.
At this moment in time it may feel that your planned dreams cannot be realised, but the most beautiful and poignant time of your life can still be achieved in a different but more intimate and special day at Gaynes Park. There is still time to discuss these options again in more detail for a better understating of how meaningful a smaller Wedding Celebration can be.
Since the government lifted the lockdown, we have been and are continuing to hold weddings for couples and are beating all the odds to have their very special day. Although it is not what they originally visualised when they first started their journey, they have all said how wonderful it has been and that they would not have changed the wedding day they had for the world.
Here is a quote from a recent wedding: “The staff have absolutely bent over backwards to give my brother and sister-in-law an amazing day to remember. Even going as far as to arrange for the wedding to be 2 days earlier to avoid the new Covid restrictions. The venue was beautiful, the food was divine, the drink was plentiful and the accommodation was brilliant. The staff were courteous and helpful. We’ve had a brilliant couple of days. Can’t recommend enough.” – Dani 27th September 2020.
While we understand that plenty of you will have concerns and questions about your wedding, we are please asking for further patience as we help other couples who are also in your position, but their wedding dates are earlier than yours.
We are working through these in wedding date order and will make contact with you as soon as we can to discuss the finer details of each of these options. Our team as you can imagine is still extremely busy, which means that our response time is longer than usual, but we are doing all we can to speak to you as soon as possible.
If your date falls beyond 31st December 2020, please continue to remain patient and if there are any further updates directly relating to your wedding, then we will reach out to you with a further communication.
If you do have an urgent matter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your wedding date and note Gaynes Park in the subject line. We aim to get back to you within five working days.
