In general, wedding receptions in Vanajanlinna always include some amount of accommodation. In high season (June-September), we offer min. 100 person wedding receptions, and the wedding package includes always also accommodation. Guests can pay their own accommodation directly to Vanajanlinna, so the wedding couple does not need to take care about it. In the end, the wedding couple is responsible for the accommodation in the wedding package even if all the rooms are not used. Outside high season we offer accommodation in wedding packages according to the wishes of the wedding couple.
If the rooms were not occupied the previous night, earlier check in may be possible. If the rooms were occupied the previous night, the check out is at noon so they are cleaned between 12.00 and 15.00. If the wedding ceremony is held here in the castle area, we recommend that you start at 4 PM, after all the guests have had the possibility to check in to their rooms. It is also important that the bride and the groom mention already in the invitation that the rooms will be available only after 3 PM.
On-line booking is commonly used, especially for larger wedding receptions. We will assign your wedding reception its own code, which will be delivered to wedding guests together with the invitation. Thus, the guests are free to book their accommodation and pay for it in our online-booking. Sure, the bride and the groom can also book accommodation during registration and send the guests names and the room list directly to the sales service a few weeks before the wedding reception.
If the premise was not booked for the previous day/night by another group, you could decorate it well in advance. In general, our restaurant lay dining tables the night before, so, therefore, the space is ready for decorations and others the wedding morning at the latest. The booking situation is confirmed only a couple of weeks beforehand so please discuss about the decorating with our sales service.
Vanajanlinna can also decorate the premise for you with extra cost.
Vanajanlinna with its surroundings is our hotel restaurant area. It is a part of our restaurant licensed premises, so you are not allowed to bring your own food or drinks to the area.
We charge a booking fee immediately after the wedding reception confirmation. Thereafter, we usually charge everything related to the wedding reception in two installments in advance in accordance with our payment terms. The final invoice will be charged after the wedding reception and the booking fee and advance payments paid before will be compensated at the same time.
