A. As part of our wedding package the Moorpark Suite is fully decorated, from the mirrored centrepieces, silver candelabras filled with church candles to create a magical atmosphere, and flower displays on crisp linen set tables to the Chiavari Chairs and fresh flower arrangements throughout the Hotel.

The fairy-lit white backdrop behind the stage and the ceiling fairy-lit swag over the dancefloor will sparkle throughout the evening while you dance the night away. 

We also have the popular Flower wall that can be displayed for your guests to enjoy taking selfies – a nice idea is to set up a hashtag of your wedding day and guests can upload their own photos to it allowing you and your partner to enjoy going back over the memories. 

We also have a sweet cart and can provide the sweets, or you can order online with a number of the sweet companies and have them delivered straight to the Hotel.
