weddings at newclose

Situated just outside Newport within acres of picturesque countryside is Newclose County Cricket Ground. Its central location and ample free parking make Newclose an accessible venue. We can create a wedding to suit all tastes and budgets from the lavish luxury of a summer marquee wedding to an intimate gathering in The Pavilion which can host 50-100 guests.

The Pavilion

The Pavilion is available all year round and boasts beautiful unspoiled country views providing an unrivalled backdrop for your special day. The Pavilion can seat 80 guests for a traditional sit-down meal or more if you opt for a buffet style celebration and there’s room for a dancefloor. There is a fully licensed bar and the convenience of ample free parking. The Pavilion is also very affordable with exclusive use hire prices starting from just £500 inclusive of VAT. There are many catering options available including cold finger-buffets to three-course wedding breakfast. Our events manager would be delighted to talk you through all the options.

The Marquee

If you are having a larger wedding, then between April and September a stunning outdoor marquee is situated alongside the cricket ground. The Marquee comfortably seats up to 300 people. Marquee hire includes tables, chairs, lighting, dancefloor, sound system, bar and toilets and start from £2000 inclusive of VAT. Events at the Marquee must finish by 11pm

The marquee was classy and the catering, the service and the view made our wedding day all the more special.
