3. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1 Our contract. These terms, together with the contract between you and us for the hire of the Venue and supply of additional services (“Booking Contract”), form the contract between us. If there is any conflict or ambiguity between these terms and the Booking Contract, a term contained in the Booking Contract shall have priority over one contained in these terms.
3.2 Our estimates. Any estimate given by us shall not constitute an offer and is only valid for a period of 28 days from its date of issue. Please check our estimates carefully before making your booking. Once you have discussed your requirements with us and confirmed you are happy with our estimate, we will provide you with a contract.
3.3 Your booking. Please sign and return the Booking Contract to us to confirm your booking. Each booking is an offer by you to purchase the services specified in the Booking Contract subject to these terms. You are responsible for ensuring that your booking details contained in the Booking Contract and any specifications submitted by you are complete and accurate. We will require an initial advance payment of £1,000 + VAT (“Deposit”) to be made to us before we can accept your booking. Until the Deposit has been paid to us, your booking will be treated as provisional.
3.4 How we will accept your booking. Our acceptance of your booking will take place on the date of the Booking Contract being signed, or the date that the Deposit has been paid to us, if later (“Contract Date”), at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.5 If we cannot accept your booking. If we are unable to accept your booking, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Services. This might be because the Venue has already been booked, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Services, or because we are unable to meet a date or requirement you have specified. If you have already paid the Deposit, we will refund you the full amount.
3.6 Your booking number. We will assign a booking number to your booking and tell you what it is when we accept your booking. It will help us if you can tell us the booking number whenever you contact us about your booking.

4.1 Supply of services. We agree to supply the Venue hire services and any additional services or equipment (“Services”) for the event or function (“Event”) and for the period of time (“Hire Period”) as specified in the Booking Contract.
4.2 Additional products. Our packages may include additional products, whether these are goods or services, which we agree to order on your behalf from third party suppliers for the Event. This may include catering, DJs, any entertainment not provided by us, photography, flowers, or transport. These additional products are not supplied by us and do not form part of this contract. If we agree to order these products on your behalf, we act as an intermediary between you and the relevant supplier. Any order placed by us on your behalf is a contract for the purchase of products made with the relevant supplier. We will not be responsible for products offered by us as agents for a supplier, or for any aspect of the relationship between you and a supplier. We do not make or give any representations, warranties or other promises concerning any supplier’s products provided in connection with the Services. All third-party contracts will be subject to the relevant supplier’s terms and conditions. By requesting us to order a supplier’s product on your behalf (including where these products form part of our package) you agree to comply with the supplier’s terms and conditions, and we shall be under no obligation to communicate those terms and conditions to you in advance. All your rights and remedies, including your rights to cancel or your rights to a refund, are against such supplier and not us. Any claims or complaints relating to any third-party contracts should be made against or directed to the relevant supplier.
4.3 Accommodation. This includes the Sandringham suite and two guest rooms, all of which are en-suite. Plus, the meeting room which can be used as a large space to get ready all together should you have a larger bridal party. These are provided at an additional cost.
4.31 The Sandringham suite and two guest rooms are located along the driveway, discretely placed away from the main areas but within easy walk/drive to the ceremony boat house/marquee. The rooms are not included in any packages and therefore should be booked as early as possible. The rooms are available on a first come first serve basis. Each of these rooms need to be booked individually – rooms can be booked without all of the rooms being booked at once.
4.32 We do allow room bookings the night before your wedding if the rooms are available. Should we have another event on this date then you and any other guests that are staying in the accommodation must refrain from entering any areas of Crown Hall Farm that are being used by the other event. The event taking place has exclusive use of the grounds, including around the lake, the marquee, toilets and boat house. You may experience some vehicle noise as the guests from this event leave the venue but we do everything we can to keep this under control.
4.33 The large meeting room has several dressing tables with mirrors, a hanging rail, full length mirrors and sofa area. The meeting room has a key coded lock on the door and you will be provided with the code so that you can access this space at your convenience on the day of booking. You must advise us of your arrival time so that we can ensure that the main gates are open. Refreshments can be pre-booked or you can bring your own (for use in the meeting room prior to your event only). If you decide to bring your own please ensure that you bring your own cutlery, crockery and glassware too.
4.34 All accommodation/rooms must be booked via you, (those named on the Booking Contract) and you must take responsibility for those staying in/using the rooms. If we are contacted by your guest directly we will make contact with you and arrange the room booking via you for this guest.

The DJ is a professional who will play a variety of music to suit a variety of tastes and will be proactive, reading the guests preferences and providing music accordingly. Therefore, whilst your preferred style of music will be included, other styles will also be included to provide something for everyone. Guests can make song requests – if this song is included within your ‘Please do not play’ list then the request will be politely turned down unless you give permission to the DJ directly.
4.54 Music for the first dance or back ground music. The music questionnaire requires you to provide links to your first dance song and other important music that you would like to be played in the marquee either through our sound system or by the DJ. This needs to be supplied at least 28 days prior to your Event. Changes may not be able to be made.
4.55 Music and Bands/Performers Our premises licence has strict limits regarding noise. Before we agree for you to engage a third party to supply music for the Event, we will need to liaise with them to ensure that they agree to adhere to our noise pollution requirements.
4.56 Wedding ceremonies. The Venue has been approved by the local council for civil ceremonies. A registrar must carry out, or be present at, your civil ceremony. Alternatively, a celebrant may carry out your wedding ceremony, but this will not be legally binding. Wedding ceremonies will be held at either the marquee or the boat house (if the weather permits) at the Venue. You must book and pay for the registrar or celebrant yourself. The cost of a registrar or celebrant is excluded from the charges for our Services. Guests should be advised to arrive between 30 minutes before the ceremony. Smoking and consumption of food is prohibited before or during the ceremony.
4.57 Wedding ceremony location. The Venue has been approved by the local council for civil ceremonies within the marquee and at the boat house. Should you wish to have an outdoor ceremony, the registrar will take into account the weather on the day of the event and they will make the final decision as to whether the ceremony can be outdoors. This is not a decision that any of the team at Crown Hall farm has any influence over.

You agree to allow security staff to help to ensure the safety of all people at the Venue during the Event, including ensuring all guests leave the Venue after the Event and to assist with marshalling vehicles.
4.59 Payments at the Event. We are able to accept card payments at the Venue subject to adequate internet coverage. As the Venue is based in a rural location, we cannot guarantee adequate internet coverage during the Hire Period and you must, therefore, ensure that you and your guests have adequate cash to make purchases (for example, drinks at our bar) in the event of technical difficulties.

Any failure by you to take out adequate insurance cover for the Event will not result in any liability by us for any losses howsoever arising which could have reasonably been covered by you under a suitable insurance policy. You must ensure that you, or any third-party supplier, is adequately covered for any activities not provided by us at the Venue and you must provide us with proof of insurance cover in respect of all risks by 8 weeks before the Event, or if such time is not available before the Event as soon as reasonably practical after making your booking.

6.4.3 All Food and Drink that is not supplied by Crown Hall Farm but has been agreed in writing, MUST have an allergens list on display and a copy must be provided to Crown Hall Farm.
6.4.4 Food and Drink that is not supplied by Crown Hall Farm but has been agreed in writing, may pose a hazard of cross contamination. Ie three tiers of wedding cake may be different flavours/ingredients but no cross contamination can be guaranteed. It is your responsibility to ensure that guests with intolerances/allergies or dietary requirements of any kind are alerted to the content and possible danger.
6.4.5 All wedding favours should be in sealed containers/packets with allergens clearly stated on each individual packet.
6.4.6 Food will be removed and either stored safely or disposed of after the safe display time has lapsed. Eg. Buffet within 2 hours, once a pork pie cake has been cut it must be consumed within 4 hours and can not be re-refrigerated once cut, a cheese wedding cake can be displayed and consumed within 8 hours maximum (starting from the time it was taken out of the fridge) a cheese wedding cake can be re-refrigerated but after 8 hours out of the fridge it has to be disposed of. Depending on the weather, heat on the event date and other conditions we may need to reduce the time to ensure food safety. This may require the cake cutting and consumption to be brought forward from the planned time.
6.4.7 Only wedding cake will be stored and provided at the end of the event or the next day to take away subject to this being within the safe time limits. All other food will not be saved even when there is food left over.
6.4.8 Food and Drink that is not supplied by Crown Hall Farm but has been agreed in writing, must be in date. The Event manager has the right to check food dates and should they be out of date they can dispose of them and request in date food or drink is provided.
6.4.9 Permission to supply your own food may not be granted. If food or drink is brought into the venue, including the accommodation or meeting room without written consent it will be confiscated and returned to you at the end of the event, however perishable items may be disposed of.
6.4.10 All Food and Drink that is not supplied by Crown Hall Farm but has been agreed in writing, must be supplied with all the relevant storage and serving equipment. Ie plates, napkins, knives, spoons and forks, baskets for crackers, cake stands etc. Plates and cutlery can be hired from Crown Hall Farm and as such will be washed after the event, disposable items provided by you will be collected and disposed of by our team. Items provided by yourselves should be taken home to be washed after the event.

You will additionally be liable to pay to us value added tax (VAT) at the prevailing rate (if applicable). We take all reasonable care to ensure that the Price advised to you is correct. However please see clause 15.3for what happens if we discover an error in the Price you booked. The Price set out in our brochures includes VAT.
15.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your Contract Date and the Event, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Services in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
15.3 What happens if we got the price wrong? It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your booking so that, where the Services' correct price at your booking date is less than our stated price at your booking date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Services' correct price at your booking date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your booking. If we accept and process your booking where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and not perform the Services.
15.4 How you must pay. We accept payment for the Services with debit or credit card, or by bank transfer to the bank account we have notified to you for such purpose. Credit card payments will be subject to a card handling fee, which will be notified to you at the time of payment. Payment with credit card is not accepted for the final advance payment due under clause 15.5.3.
15.5 When you must pay for the Services. We will invoice you in advance for the Services. When you must pay and how much you must pay depends on the specific circumstances of your booking, such as how far in advance you are making your booking, if we have agreed you can pay in instalments, if your booking details or circumstances have changed, and at which point you finalise your booking details with us:
15.5.1 Deposit. You must pay an initial payment of £1,000 + VAT at the time you make the booking. All Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable
15.5.2 Further instalments. Additional advance payments (“Further Instalments”) must be made by you for the Services as set out below, depending on how many months in advance of the Event you are booking:
18.104.22.168 For bookings made more than eight months in advance, you must make a second payment of 50% of the Price no later than two months after the Contract Date and a third payment of 25% of the Price no later than five months after the Contract Date;
22.214.171.124 For bookings made more than three months and up to eight months in advance, you must make a second payment of 50% of the Price no later than one month after the Contract Date and a third payment of 25% of the price of the Service no later than two months after the Contract Date;

We will give you reasonable notice in writing of the amounts due and the due dates for payment for all further instalments.
184.108.40.206 Further instalments may be made in the form of monthly payments, as mutually agreed or in % payments that are spread over more payments than described above. Again, this will need to be agreed. Any discretionary amendments to the further instalments are subject to all other clauses, including cancellation terms. Should the agreed further instalment dates lapse without payment being made then the agreed further instalment schedule can be revoked and the outstanding payment should be paid asap.
15.5.3 Final advance payment. The balance of the Price is due no less than 28 days before the Event. For bookings made within 28 days or less of the Event, the total Price must be paid in full at the time you make the booking. If the Event is postponed or delayed, we reserve the right to invoice you for a reasonable proportion of the balance of the Price at any time before the date falling 28 days before the Event.
15.5.4 Outstanding sums due. We may issue an additional invoice after the Event for any further charges due which we have not invoiced you for. Such additional charges may include those payable for any final alterations to the Services, for guests attending the Event in excess of the number estimated by you under clause 6.2, for additional goods or services ordered at the Event, or for compensation owing to us for you or your guests breaking any of the Venue rules (see clause 5.2). We may set-off any additional charges due under this clause against any remaining balance of the Security Deposit (see clause 15.7) and we will pay any balance owing to you (if any) within 14 days after the Event.
15.6 Our right of set-off if you are a business customer. If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

A security payment of the higher of £600 or the sum set out in the Booking Contract (“Security Deposit”) will be held as payment on account. The Security Deposit will be held up until 14 days after the Event. We will deduct from the Security Deposit all reasonable expenses incurred by us as a result of any loss or damage to our property caused by you or anyone you permit to enter the Venue. We will release the balance (if any) of the Security Deposit within 14 days after the Event. If the expenses incurred by us exceed the Security Deposit sum held by us, we shall invoice you for any additional charges, which will be payable by you within 14 days of receipt. If you disagree with any expenses claimed under this clause, please contact us immediately by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org to make a formal complaint. If you have raised a formal complaint, we will hold the Security Deposit until such time as a resolution has been reached.
15.7.1 If your credit or debit card details have been saved securely within our system – this can be used by you to create a tab at the bar. The bar tab will record all transactions and then at the end of the event we will use the saved details to take payment. On request we can send you a receipt showing all transactions that occurred. The tab can be settled/ended at any time by you.
15.8 We can charge you an administration fee if you fail to make payment. For any failed or cancelled payments, an administration fee may be charged.
15.9 When you must pay invoices. All invoices issued by us under the contract shall be payable by you within 14 days of receipt unless otherwise agreed in writing.
15.10 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 6% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England’s from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
15.11 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved.
