The Big Day!
Getting married at Slater’s.
Here you will find all of the details of your wedding day at Slater’s Country Inn.
Preparation - The Excitement Begins
The Dressing Room is exclusively available from 7:30am on the morning of your wedding day for the Bridal Party to get ready. Situated in the adjacent shopping village, the Dressing Room offers luxurious facilities with indulgent décor to start your day the perfect way. Arrange for your Hair Stylist and Make up Artist to attend or utilise existing hair and beauty services within the village. There is ample space in The Dressing Room for your photographer to catch these first precious moments of your wedding day. Complimentary tea and coffee is included. Sandwiches, bottles of fizz and other extras can be pre-ordered and added as required.
Ceremony - The “I Do’s”
Whether you would like a spring and summer garden party vibe, an autumnal rustic celebration, or a cosy winter gathering, our ceremony spaces give you exactly what you need to host your perfect countryside wedding in Staffordshire.
Facilities & Wedding Garden - Make Yourselves At Home
Our wedding facilities consist of The Wedding House, The Gazebo, The Wedding Garden, The Snug, and of course The Briar Suite and The Briar Suite Bar. All of these are accessible for you on the day right up until the bar closes. Flowing from your ceremony to your drinks reception, we encourage you to make yourselves at home and relax in your surroundings. With the wedding facilities being in such close proximity there is always a good energy maintained throughout the day. Granny may decide to retire to the snug after the first dance but she isn’t far away for a natter or a photograph.
Your Wedding Breakfast - Delicious Food & Celebrations
Sit back and relax amongst family and friends in the charmingly rustic Briar Suite, whilst our dedicated and friendly wedding team serves your wedding breakfast. Starting with a choice of wine, you will then indulge your senses by feasting on your first meal as a married couple. Working closely with you, our wedding planner and head chef will ensure that you and your guests experience the perfect wedding breakfast that is both seasonal and scrumptious before finishing off with a glass of the bubbly of choice to toast your marriage.
Your Evening Reception - Party On Down!
Your evening guests will start to arrive and it’s like the day is starting all over again, only this time you are already married and ready to party on down! The lights have gone down, the DJ or Live Band are set up, and you will cut your wedding cake on the dance floor before going into your first dance together as a married couple. It’s now time to laugh, party, eat and drink until the early hours. There is plenty of space for your evening guests in The Briar Suite as it holds up to 160 guests for your evening reception. The wedding gardens are also lit up with fairy lights in the colder months and long lasting sunlight in the summer making for beautiful twilight photographs. The flow to your day just couldn’t be better.
Goodnight Y’all - Exclusively Yours
As soon as you book your wedding with us the entirety of the hotel’s accommodation is exclusively yours for first refusal for your wedding night. This is perfect for those guests who may be travelling from farther afield and would like to make the most of our rustic and chic country hotel, or perhaps a couple who would like to enjoy a rare night away from the kids together. The accommodation consists of 12 luxury en-suite rooms with a selection of twin or king size bedded rooms. These are complimented by our Courtyard rooms comprising a further 2 king size en-suite rooms and 3 family suites to accommodate the littlest of party animals.
