Wedding Receptions
The Main Hall set for a wedding reception at the John Godber CentreAt the John Godber Centre we understand that your wedding day will be a day that you will remember for a lifetime and one that will remain in the memory of your guests for a long time to come.

You will benefit from our in-house dedicated wedding planning team. We take the utmost care in the preparation and execution of each of our events.

Whatever the size of your wedding we have a range of rooms and facilities to suit all your needs including two bars, a large main hall, two ground floor suites and a grand staircase, offering ideal photo opportunities.

You can be as creative as you want to with our blank canvas rooms. We can offer suggestions on how to decorate your room and add those individual touches to make your reception unique.

The spacious Main Hall is perfect for Wedding celebrations, with its own private entrance from the car park and St Mary Magdalene's Churchyard. The hall benefits from a large stage to add a unique touch to your wedding reception and is ideal for bands and DJs and a private adjoining bar area.

The Main Hall can hold up to 120 guests for a seated meal or 200 guests for an evening reception.

We can create a package to suit everyone’s style but we have also tailored a number of packages to suit all tastes and budgets, and ensure your guests’ expectations are always exceeded. We can also help you source musicians, children’s entertainment, florists, hotels and transport; helping you to create your most special day.
