Sodexo Prestige Welcomes Weddings Surge at Hamilton Park Racecourse

Hospitality bosses at one of Scotland’s most exclusive venues are getting ready for a busy season of weddings as new winter packages have seen a significant rise in bookings.

This year, Hamilton Park Racecourse have introduced a new Winter Wonderland Package and a Valentine’s Wedding Package, encouraging people to opt for their fairytale wedding at the top-class venue.

The packages have proven to be an enormous success as the exclusive Scottish racecourse has seen an impressive 75% increase in the number of bookings for 2015.

Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events (PV&E), current catering and hospitality partners at the venue, as well as at Hampden Park and Perth Racecourse, will be looking to add that extra bit of taste and luxury to the five star packages.

Attractive Winter Wedding Packages in Scotland

Laura Cameron, Sales Manager for Sodexo Prestige at the venue said: “The Valentine’s and Winter Wonderland wedding packages introduced this year are proving to be extremely popular.

We have seen a significant rise in the number of bookings for 2015 in comparison to the number of bookings we had for this year, which is very encouraging.

We’ve found that the introduction of quirky new packages that are linked to romantic themes such as Valentine’s, has encouraged people to consider having their wedding at a different and more unusual time of year.

As a result, these packages have moved more weddings into what would normally be our quieter winter months, which is really great.”

She added: “As catering partners for Hamilton Park Racecourse, our team of Executive Chefs will work to devise the menus and catering for these very special events.

With more weddings being scheduled for the winter months, the menus created will not only be suited to the occasion, but will be tailored with the time of year and the fresh seasonal produce available locally, which we think will add a really nice winter touch.”

With both packages coming in at a very reasonable £3995, those looking to brave the Scottish winter and tie-the-knot at the high end venue can expect both packages to include a delicious three course meal, a glittering fairly light canopy, hire of the venues Parade Ring Marquee, DJ entertainment and free reign of the picturesque grounds which will undoubtedly provide a stunning setting for wedding photographs.

Amanda Brown, National Accounts Director for Sodexo Prestige said: “It’s great to see the new wedding packages have been such a success for Hamilton Park.

They are great value and offer those little extras, which help to make a wedding special and hassle free for the bride and groom.

The Sodexo Prestige team at the venue will be adding to each occasion by creating innovative and tasty winter themed dishes using locally sourced fresh produce.”
