While Christmas is set to look a little different this year, Macdonald Linden Hall, near Longhorsley, is determined that couples can still celebrate the holidays while tying the knot.
The rolling restrictions on social distancing and travel mean it is unlikely that people will be able to enjoy Christmas with extended family or friends this year.
However, under current guidelines, weddings are one of the few instances where larger groups of people can get together.
Macdonald Linden Hall has combined the best of both celebrations with a wedding package specially created for gatherings of up to 15 people, in line with current government advice.
It includes seven complimentary bedrooms on the night of the wedding, access to the stunning Christmas tree for photographs and the choice of Prosecco or mulled wine for the reception drinks.
The package also allows time for a gift exchange in front of a private log burning fire, and guests can even enjoy access to the spa as part of their stay.
Tanya Hedley, wedding co-ordinator at Macdonald Linden Hall Hotel said: “We do not know what Christmas will look like this year, but it is unlikely that we will be able to celebrate with all our extended family and friends as planned.“Weddings are one of the few instances where people can get together with a larger group of loved ones, so this year we thought we’d incorporate the magic of Christmas Day into our festive wedding package.
“With all the upset of 2020, we have found that couples just want to go ahead and get married, even if it is just in front of a few close friends and family. This really is the ultimate festive wedding package, which has all the touches of opulence and luxury you would expect of a high-end venue.
“It has been incredibly popular with couples already and the team at Macdonald Linden Hall cannot wait to get into the Christmas spirit.”
Macdonald Linden Hall Hotel’s festive wedding package starts from £2,500 Monday to Friday, and £2,700 on a Saturday. Couples who book before October 31 will also receive a complimentary bottle of Champagne in their room.
