Additional information

Hire fee: We want to make your day as special as possible so we like to keep things simple.  Our full wedding package, as described above, is £1500.
Catering: We highly recommend PP catering who regularly host events at St John's Place.  They are very experienced in quickly transforming the building from a wedding ceremony to a reception. 
Guest numbers:  St John's Place is ideal for up to 100 seated guests or 120 if standing/dancing.  It is possible for St John's Place to have a total of 150 people standing (no tables and chairs).  Please speak to us if over 120 as additional fire regulations come into place to ensure your safety.
Getting to us: St John's Place is only one mile from the railway station and the centre of Salisbury ensuring easy access for all of your guests.  
Parking: There is a public car park opposite to the venue with a large layby adjacent to it (near to Bemerton St John's Primary School) and after 6pm you are also permitted to park along Lower Road.  An adjacent field with a path directly to St John's Place can be hired for £50.  Please ask for contact details to arrange this.
