Tie the knot the Monkey World way!
Catering for both large and small groups, Civil Ceremonies, Civil Partnerships and Renewal of Vows. We take care of everything for you – our dedicated wedding team will guide you through all the preparations, and be on hand throughout the day to ensure that you can relax and enjoy this special occasion.
The ceremony will take place alongside the Bachelors’ chimpanzee enclosure, and you can be sure that the chimpanzees in this group will all be very interested in everything that’s going on! After the service, buffet and toasts, you will be free to enjoy our beautiful 65-acre park – a photographer’s dream – before making your way to your evening reception.
At the end of your unique and memorable day, you can feel safe in the knowledge that you have contributed to a good cause as the funds generated will enable us to continue with our rescue and rehabilitation work.
Our Wedding Package is exclusive and individually tailored to suit each couple. We can also offer a ‘service only’ option. Available dates are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
Catering for both small and large events – from groups of 4 to 80 – we can offer a flexible service to meet your individual requirements and budget. Our all-inclusive wedding package includes: Venue hire ~ Free entry to the park ~ Decorated service area ~ Table linen, table decorations and room decoration in the colour of your choice ~ Arrival drinks ~ Wedding buffet ~ Toasting champagne ~ Soft drinks throughout the day ~ Crockery, cutlery and glassware.
Our primates are just like us, and we like to make sure that they have a full stomach and a comfortable bed before they retire for a good night’s sleep – which must be heaven for them after the abuse and neglect that many of them have endured. With this in mind, we have taken the decision not to hold any evening functions at the park. However, there are many local reception venues – including the Jim Cronin Memorial Fund Education Centre, adjacent to Monkey World – in the area to choose from.
