Our experienced staff at the Ponsbourne Hotel can gently guide you through appropriate choices of reception menus, drinks and flowers and a choice of suite and layout for your reception. It is our desire to provide you with an appropriate and fitting celebration as a memorial to the dear departed with smooth-running organisation and service to help make your day as comfortable as it can be.
Ponsbourne has a choice of carefully selected funeral reception menus, reflecting both the season and local produce and to suit a range of occasions, some informal others tailored to a more formal gathering.
Light buffets and snacks through to more comprehensive catering are available in a range of individual packages to make it easy for you to choose what you want for your reception. We aim to make your experience as stress-free as possible, you already have enough to deal with.
Floral tributes and tasteful decorations are available from one of our preferred suppliers, on hand to advise you of appropriate styling and colours, allowing you to remember your loved one in the privacy and the warm serenity that is Ponsbourne. Thoughtful touches such as a memory tree and an overhead projector and screen can be added to your suite to help mark the occasion. We also have a selection of musicians on our preferred suppliers’ list ranging from string quartets to the haunting beauty of a solitary harp. Some of our reception suites have private access to Ponsbourne’s beautiful gardens allowing guests to take a stroll and peacefully remember the person whose life they have come to celebrate in quiet solitude.
