Monkey Island Estate in Maidenhead, Berkshire, welcomes couples for Open Wedding Weekends to jumpstart 2021 wedding planning. For engaged couples who have had to put their wedding plans on hold this year, the team at YTL Hotels' Monkey Island Estate will host them and their loved ones for an open house wedding show around each weekend throughout the summer starting in July 2020.
Situated on a picturesque private island on the River Thames in the historic village of Bray, Monkey Island Estate is a truly remarkable venue for newlyweds to tie the knot. Brides and grooms-to-be will have complete freedom to create a wedding day that is individually tailored to them. Whether it's a countryside wedding with a marquee or tipi on the exquisite lawns, an intimate ceremony and dinner party in the refined River Room or an elegant soirée in the stately Marlborough Ballroom, couples can personally craft their big day, their way.
Couples can also choose one of the three wedding packages; The Pavilion Collection with use of both The River Room and Marlborough Ballroom (pictured), The Island Collection offering exclusive-use of the island and the Lawn Collection, ideal for larger celebrations of up to 300 guests.
On the day itself, couples can retreat to the romantic Shepherd's Hideaway to enjoy a few minutes of calm. Celebrations can long continue after the sun sets as newlyweds and their loved ones gather round the firepit toasting marshmallows. Rest and relaxation await the following day at the famed Floating Spa, a bespoke barge boasting three indulgent treatment rooms and an Elixir Bar moored on the banks of the island.
Set across seven acres, Monkey Island Estate, which can be booked in its entirety for couples looking for the ultimate exclusive island wedding takeover, offers 41 luxury bedrooms and suites. There's also six Private Residences, each spacious and charming in design and an ideal destination for friends and family to get ready in or the perfect place for newlyweds to spend their first night as a married couple together. Surrounded by elegant gardens, Monkey Island is accessed only by footbridge, boat or helicopter, offering a secluded country venue, yet it's conveniently located for guests, only 10 minutes from Windsor and less than an hour's drive from Central London. Couples looking to make an impressive entrance could even arrive by boat, pulling up to the island's private mooring before guests shower them with confetti.
Celebrations continue after the big day because YTL Hotels is also helping newlyweds jumpstart married life in serious style. Couples who spend £35k or more on their wedding at Monkey Island Estate will be treated to a complimentary seven-night full-board honeymoon at one of the flagship YTL Hotels in beautiful Bali, Thailand or Malaysia for a honeymoon of a lifetime.
