Whether you’re planning a civil ceremony, wedding reception or both their dedicated Wedding Planner will guide you through the planning process and ensure your day runs smoothly.

Wicksteed has a choice of flexible function suites available to suit every occasion.

Their Grand Pavilion is a stunning and flexible banqueting suite that can cater from 85 to 900 guests for your seated wedding breakfast.

The Pavilion has recently been sensitively restored and boasts an array of original features as well as a state of the art lighting system.

Their Celebration Suite is a bright and charming room that can hold up to 90 guests for your seated wedding breakfast and up to 150 for your evening reception.



All function suites benefit from private bars for the exclusive use of your wedding party with easy access to the gardens for those all-important wedding photos.

The elegant Edwardian Pavilion has undergone a major refurbishment in response to a major increase in demand for it to be used as a weddings venue.

To mark the refurbishment, Wicksteed Park have agreed 10% off the Ultimate Wedding Package on selected dates in 2013.

The package includes a dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator, a Master of Ceremonies for Wedding Reception announcements, a personalised engraved keepsake cake knife and a complimentary overnight stay at the Kettering Park Hotel for the bride and groom (subject to minimum 80 guests).  



The improvements follow on from the successful refurbishment of the Pavilion’s Celebration Suite last year.

The latest improvements include the sensitive refurbishment of the Pavilion’s original Edwardian features, including the complete remodelling of the bars, new chandeliers, and a state of the art lighting system.

The exterior has also been re-painted and a new entrance foyer has been added to the South Pavilion.

The Pavilion is at the heart of the park, which offers free Car Parking for the wedding party and guests, as well as use of the gardens and attractions for wedding pictures and videos and to entertain wedding guests.




It also has the UK’s largest and oldest children’s playground to keep the children happy during the reception.

Over the years Wicksteed Park has learnt to anticipate the things people love most about a Wicksteed wedding and they've combined these into their Classic and Ultimate packages.

Their two all-inclusive wedding packages are designed to take the stress out of planning your big day and include hire of your chosen suite for both daytime and evening, mouth-watering menu options and drinks packages. They are also delighted to offer a complimentary train or carousel ride for all guests giving the perfect opportunity for unique photos.
