Our Wedding Invitation

Weddings at The Walnut Tree Inn
Catering for your special day, your way

Northampton WeddingsYour nuptials not only matter to you but also to us. We want to ensure your big day will be a day to remember for all the right reasons. Exceptional food and first class wines and champagnes will go a long way to ensure this, as will our elegant surroundings and friendly, polite staff. We’re even licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 60 people, so you can get married in our historic building, host the wedding breakfast there, party till the wee hours and stay over with some of your guests too – in short, we can deliver the perfect package.

In the early days of your plans we will assist you in every way possible, so things run like clockwork prior to your wedding day. Then on the big day itself, our courteous and friendly staff and dedicated management team will ensure your guests feel at ease and enjoy the Inn and its facilities. We can either guide you through the whole process or work with your wedding planner – the choice is yours.

That said we’ve catered for so many nuptials now, that our in-house team know a lot about the latest wedding trends, themes, colours and decorations. So, if you’d like a little help deciding on various aspects of your wedding, perhaps we can offer a suggestion or two of our own. They say many hands make light work!

Northants Civil Ceremonies

A grand affair or a small intimate wedding

Our Ellington Suite can accommodate up to 85 guests for a silver service wedding breakfast or 120 if a buffet-style reception. It has its own separate entrance, toilets and bar, giving you total privacy on the day. However, if it is the second (third or fourth) time around for you or you simply don’t want a huge party, our private dining room might be more your taste. Either way, we can decorate the room in any style, to match your personalities and wedding colours.

All delivered to your guests by smartly dressed and polite waiting staff, who know how to make you and your guests feel at ease and the importance of a simple smile.
