Wow. What an amazing property. Absolutely beautiful. Setting foot in Lythwood Lodge, you feel at home, such a well kept place. Amazing staff that will go to the ends of the earth to help you.

Wedding budget overruns can spoil your special day.
No more budget worries with our all-in packages: Pearl, Gold, the popular Emerald,and the all inclusive Diamond and of course our accommodation is discounted for you and your guests. How much? You ask. It’s always one of the very first questions we hear. Even before the bridal couple ask if their date is available. And for good reason – someone has to foot the bill. Knowing how much is key.
Each wedding is unique. Plus, bridal couples have typically never planned a wedding before. There’s a whole list of things that make up the cost of a wedding. Things they may never have considered. Things that are key to their decision as to which venue to use.
We’d be unfair to mislead you into thinking Rxyz is what it’ll cost you, without consulting with you first. We need to make sure we understand your wedding plans and ideas. Before we simply ‘throw a number at you’. After all, what kind of wedding cake do you want? Who’s going to bake it? How much will that cost (there is a big price range)? Ditto … décor, seating, cutlery & crockery, menu, … and the list goes on.
That’s why we offer four comprehensive packages, each including various wedding service items relating to your wedding, each with a single all-in price. They include things many other venues don’t, like accommodation for your guests, your wedding cake, etc.
At Lythwood, you also get access to our powerful, stress-relieving wedding planning tools. Tools that’ll help you take care of all the time-consuming tasks, such as sending out invitations and tracking the RSVPs. Taking the confirmed guest list and feeding that into who has special food requirements. All the way through to helping you plan the table seating arrangements.
And of course, our dedicated wedding co-ordinator will be there to hold your hand, every step of the way. Between our powerful wedding planning tools and dedicated wedding co-ordinator, you’ll be free to enjoy your wedding. Be free to just have fun. A Lythwood wedding is not one of those sausage-machine weddings, where the proprietors try to squeeze as many weddings into a weekend as possible. At the same time, charging you for every little ‘extra’.
At Lythwood, your wedding weekend is yours. Reserved for you and your guests. No, “you and your guests have to be out of the chapel by 14:30, because we have another wedding starting at 15:00”. Or, in the case of many other venues where the reception hall turns into a pumpkin at midnight. Regardless of whether the party has just started or not. We don’t have cut-off times!
None of that. The Lythwood wedding venue is yours alone for the weekend. Our staff are there just to serve you and your guests, not to clean up quickly for the next bridal party. Book a viewing and we can go through the packages with you. That way, you can see the venue, see if it suits your dream. Ask questions and allow us to bring to your attention all the options and aspects involved in a wedding. Things you may never have thought of up front. THEN, you can make an informed decision. One best suited to your dream and budget.
If you are happy to get married on a Sunday afternoon (just NOT on a long weekend) or during the week (Sunday to Thursday only – NOT on a Friday or public holiday), we offer a special discount on the Gold Wedding Package.
