How do I book a wedding?
You can save your date with a provisional booking for one month.

The Nottingham Registration District covers the area of the City of Nottingham. The office is situated in the centre of Nottingham at:

How soon should we book?
Some dates tend to get booked up quite far in advance, especially Saturdays and the summer months, so it’s best to book as soon as you can to make sure you get your first choice.
How many bedrooms do you have?
We have 30 bedrooms and 2 suites. Please request our wedding rates from our wedding planner.
Can we provisionally hold a selection of rooms for our family?
Certainly, we can make those arrangements together with you.
Do you have a bridal suite?
We have two suites available but would not class these as a bridal suite. We can show you a suite on your show round if available.
Will we have a dedicated wedding co-ordinator?
Our dedicated wedding planner Sally Thornhill will be your contact throughout to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Do we have to pay for everything now?
We ask for a £1000 deposit to secure your date which is non-refundable. Half the estimated final invoice is due 30 weeks before, with the remaining balance due 4 weeks before your wedding day.
What is your refund or cancellation policy?
We have a sliding scale, please view our wedding brochure for more information. We advise clients to consider taking out insurance to cover the unlikely event of cancellation.
Do you give discounts for off-season weddings?
Our wedding planner will be happy to discuss the various wedding offers we have available and find the best one to suit your budget.
Will ours be the only wedding at your venue on our wedding day?
Yes. We understand that on your wedding day you want to feel special – that’s why we choose not to host more than one wedding each day.
What time will my evening reception finish?
Evening receptions usually finish at midnight as we are licensed to serve alcohol up to 12 midnight. If you require the bar to be open after 12 midnight a charge of £150 will be levied for every 30 minutes, by prior arrangement only as Hart’s will have to apply for this via the City Council.
Can you help with recommending wedding suppliers?
We have hand-selected a number of wedding suppliers that we are confident to recommend. These are all listed on our website or can be requested.
What evening entertainment can I have for my wedding reception?
We welcome evening functions with a disco or live entertainment. Our wedding planner can help source your evening entertainment if required. Read our blog HERE
Is there parking on site?
We have a private car park for guests staying overnight in the hotel. There is an overnight charge of £9.95 per car per night.
