If you're having to postpone due to Covid-19
Pandemic update, and your future bookings
Here at The Old Parish Rooms we wanted to keep you updated with what's going on during this unsettling, uncertain time.
What's important for you to know is, we're rearranging our bookings, not cancelling them. The coronavirus pandemic has escalated quickly and we're listening closely to the government's advice daily, but we're still looking forward to hosting your lovely weddings and parties once it's all over.
We're rearranging our events in date order. If your booking is later on in the year and you are still hoping you can go ahead, we can pencil in a backup date for you. That way you know you have a fallback option which you can always decide to move to nearer to the time.
What has been overwhelmingly lovely during this time is that our brides and grooms to be have sent some incredibly supportive messages - because when you're a small business and you feel supported by your customers it can mean the world. It also works both ways - we want to keep communicating to you and make sure you feel supported too.
One couple said to us "Better late than never!" and we think that's a great sentiment - your weddings will still go ahead, just delayed for a bit. We know it's disappointing but what helps is that we're all in the same boat. We would absolutely love to be hosting your events as normal, but of course we can't.
Another couple emailed us and said "Is there any way you could save me a bottle?! Happy to wear a full hazmat suit and meet you in the car park where you can just lob the bottle at me!" We love how even in these strange times our couples are still keeping their humour! (Don't worry, we're very much observing social distancing despite how much we would love to fling champagne at our customers.)
If you'd like to discuss your booking, ask about a future event, or even if you'd like a video call to view the venue (we can give you a tour!) please do let us know. We're here to help you and we can't wait to host your events in the coming months.
In the meantime, this will give you extra time to think about your wedding or event, so get on Pinterest, start brainstorming new ideas, and do take a look back through our previous blogs and our real weddings here for some positive inspo.
Keep safe and well, stay home, wash those hands, and we'll see you for your events soon. Keep an eye out on our social media for updates as soon as we get them.
