COVID-19 Update

Life has changed considerably in recent times and we are all adapting to new norms in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. The last thing we would want is for this to distract from the weddings which take place at Homme; the experience of recent months only serves to highlight how special they are for everyone involved.

That said, it is very important to us that everyone should be able to relax in the knowledge that we are doing everything we can to look after those who visit Homme. So, if you will forgive us, we will start with a brief overview of the steps we are taking to ensure that Homme House is ‘COVID-19 Safe’, and the things we are asking visitors and suppliers to help with to ensure it remains so for everybody who shares our home.

Our COVID-19 Measures

A brief overview of the COVID-19 measures we have put in the place:

  • Sarah and Charlie, who look after weddings at Homme, have been vaccinated and boosted, and undertake twice weekly lateral flow tests
  • Every member of the Homme team is fully briefed on the latest Government advice on safe working and vigilance about hygiene measures, social distancing and self-isolation should COVID-19 symptoms develop.
  • Social distancing guidelines are adhered to with all visitors to the house. 
  • All reception spaces are ventilated as much as possible for the period of the wedding.
  • Government guidelines are strictly followed in the set up and management of each wedding day. 
  • All guests are encouraged to provide contact details for NHS Test & Trace prior to attending a wedding.
  • Hand sanitising stations are provided for guest use on arrival and within the house.
  • Signage to remind and encourage the recommended approach to hand washing is displayed in all loos.
  • Main house, Summerhouse and Coach House windows are opened to thoroughly ventilate the properties as part of the cleaning process.
  • All spaces are thoroughly cleaned between weddings with appropriate equipment in accordance with industry guidelines.
  • All spaces are thoroughly disinfected with appropriate equipment and chemicals in accordance with industry guidelines.
  • All linen is laundered at 60 degrees. All towels are laundered at 90 degrees.
  • All kitchenware is put through the dishwasher at 60 degrees (whether used or not).
  • Soiled cleaning cloths are laundered at 90 degrees and toilet brushes/mop heads are disinfected in bleach.
  • Any issues requiring a maintenance visit are arranged when guests are not on site wherever possible (unless an emergency).

Visitors to Homme

We ask all visitors to Homme to help us by doing the following:

  • To give you and other guests peace of mind we are asking all visitors to confirm at least double vaccination and a negative lateral flow test result within 72 hours of their arrival (providing time for a follow up PCR test should a positive result be returned). Lateral flow tests can be ordered for home delivery free from the NHS here. A declaration can be made at the bottom of this page (here).
  • Please do not attend if you have a positive test result or are displaying COVID-19 symptoms. Stay at home, self-isolate and get a PCR test to confirm your lateral flow test as appropriate.
  • If you become unwell with COVID-19 symptoms during your visit please leave immediately and follow Government stay at home guidance.
  • Please make use of the hand sanitising facilities available at the entrance.
  • Wash or sanitise your hands frequently while visiting Homme, either thoroughly for 20 seconds with running water and soap, or with hand sanitiser ensuring that all parts of the hands are covered. Please use the hand sanitiser provided before and after using the loo facilities.
  • It is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering inside, but suggested when using the loo facilities.
  • Please be sensitive about social distancing with other guests and those working at the wedding.
  • If you exhibit COVID-19 symptoms within 2 weeks of visiting Homme please get in touch to notify us.

NHS Test & Trace

We are advised to keep a record of guests attending weddings at Homme and contact numbers in the event they should be required for NHS Test & Trace. The details will be stored securely for 21 days prior to deletion.

There will also be a QR code available on arrival to check in using the NHS Test & Trace app if you would like to do so on arrival for the wedding.

Overnight Guests

In addition to the above measures, we would be very grateful if you would help us with the following:

  • Please strip your own bed linen. Please place all the bed linen inside one laundry bag provided and all the towels within a separate laundry bag provided. These bags are in the wardrobe of your bedroom.
  • Please place any recyclable waste in the recycling crate in the top kitchen (main house) or ground floor kitchen (Coach House) and tie up the bin liner in your bedroom.
  • Please leave a window open in your bedroom to ventilate it at the end of your stay.
  • Unless otherwise agreed, please check out on time by 12pm so that we have sufficient time to clean, disinfect and prepare the bedrooms for subsequent guests.

We encourage guests to use their private bathroom rather than the communal loo facilities wherever possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to Homme, and hope you will enjoy your stay with us.


At Homme we will continue to collect contact details for NHS Test & Trace, and are also asking all visitors to confirm at least double vaccination and a negative lateral flow test result within 72 hours of their arrival for the event (providing time for a follow up PCR test should a positive result be returned).

We would be very grateful if all members of your team visiting Homme in preparation for or on the wedding day could provide their details and complete the COVID declaration below. A QR code will also be available on arrival to check in using the NHS Test & Trace app.

We are conscious that you will be adapting your working practices based on latest Government guidance, including the requirement to wear face coverings in most indoor spaces. Don’t hesitate to contact us before your visit if you would like to discuss COVID-19 measures or any other aspect of your contribution towards the event. We look forward to welcoming you to Homme.
