Lord’s announces a range of offers for an extra-special wedding day

Lord’s Cricket Ground is gearing up for the festive wedding season with the announcement of a range of special offerings for 2013.

To celebrate a second successful year as a striking wedding venue, Lord’s – the Home of Cricket – will be providing this winter’s happy couples with several special extras to ensure that their day has even more sparkle.  As a wedding gift, couples who celebrate their winter nuptials at Lord’s will be offered two complimentary tickets to an international match day during the 2013/2014 cricket season.  The tickets will provide couples with an opportunity to revisit the site of their special day whilst enjoying one of Britain’s finest sporting offerings.

Winter wedding bookings for the Long Room will also gain complimentary room hire for a reception in the Thomas Lord Suite (TLS), an ideal venue for a laid back celebration, which offers ample space for dancing as the party mood sets in.  As the TLS (usually priced at £1,000) presents a blank canvas, it is especially suitable for couples who wish to put a personal stamp on their big day.

Further complimentary gifts for couples at Lord’s this winter include a 2012 price-tag, meaning that packages start at just £80 per person, and special touches provided throughout the day, range from romantic personalised messages displayed on scoreboards to tours around the world famous Ground.

Jon Robinson, MCC Assistant Secretary (Marketing & Catering), said: “Following our successful venture into the wedding market, we are proud to once again offer a range of superb wedding packages and extras for happy couples having their winter wedding at Lord’s.  We have made a concerted effort to freeze last year’s prices to make Lord’s stand out in a competitive market, and hopefully this will add to the overall appeal of the Ground as a truly unique wedding venue.”

Lord’s Cricket Ground boasts several unique spaces which are fit to cater to the requirements of both grand and intimate occasions.  The iconic Long Room, housed in the Grade II* listed Pavilion, can host upscale ceremonies and wedding breakfasts for up to 200 people, while the Writing Room is suitable for more discreet ceremonies.  Ceremonies in the historic Pavilion offer guests unrivalled views across the hallowed turf, making for a truly memorable day.

Renowned for its world-class catering, a wedding at Lord’s incorporates a three-course menu choice, designed by the Ground’s resident Executive Head Chef, Tim Harrington, with a strong emphasis on locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. 

Wedding ceremonies at Lord’s start from £1000 + VAT and receptions start from £80 + VAT per person.
