Top Table

Caterpillar Layout

If you're opting for a romantic, intimate wedding of no more than 32 daytime guests, The Caterpillar Seating Plan works wonderfully for your Wedding Breakfast Meal.

We lay our round tables out in one long row down the center of the room.

You can seat a maximum of 6 people on each of the end tables and 5 people on each of the other tables.

You could place yourselves in the centre of this setup or at the 'head of the table' to have full view of everyone.

Long Table Layout

Long dining tables in a traditional banqueting style have grown in popularity and Whistle Barns is pleased to be able to offer you this option for your seating plan.

Think dinner in the Great Hall at Hogwarts and you get the idea! These are long dining tables running the length of The Lakeside Dining Room with guests sat in long lines across from each other.

This feasting style seating plan is great fun but please be aware that there is limited space along the centre of the long tables. You'll need to choose small, narrow table decorations that can fit neatly in between your place guests' place settings.

Please note: There is a £150 fee for a long table  setup.
