Most venues have packages starting from around 50 guests. We have a minimum number of 40 people for Weddings but we do organise small and intimate pop up weddings for upto 30 guests. So in our case I would say a small wedding is under 40 guests.

Every place will be different for us as a venue 40 guests and below would be a small wedding, personally I think 60 is a good small wedding size.

There is no definite number that determines a small wedding and it can really depend on the venue space.

We prefer to call them 'intimate' because all the important close family and friends are always there!

Our smallest space can hold up to 60 guests for a seated menu so we often refer to events using this space as a more intimate wedding.

Hi, thanks for your question. We normally consider a small wedding to be 20 people or less. Our venue certainly doesn;t have a minimum we will do anything from 2 people up to 100. Please let me know if you need anything else. Kind regards Jo
