There are two options when renting an estate. Some homeowners prefer to rent their homes with outside only access while others allow inside and outside access. The degree of inside access depends on the individual estate. Hours vary for setup, however most wedding and event professionals will want to start at 9 am. This saves our clients additional labor costs since they will have more time to setup.
Estates are not rented by the hour.
Homeowners understand that some vendors will need access the night before for the lighting installation which includes a lighting test (this usually takes 6-8 hours). For a special effect, tents can be rented at an additional cost. An additional setup day is required.
On an event day, the rental company will need access in the morning to place all of the rentals and then the other vendors will follow.
If the party or ceremony starts around 4 PM and ends around 10 PM or 11 PM, then the strike will occur the following day. This is to ensure that the surrounding neighbors are not disturbed.
A normal strike takes six or eight hours and it can take longer
for larger productions.
Having an estate wedding can cost 30-40% more since everything is a la carte.
However, if you do have a flexible budget and this is your dream – we can assist you.
Our company requires security and insurance at all of our events to ensure that our clients have a great experience and so does the homeowner.
In addition, to mansion rentals, we can produce events at private estates and venues in Southern California, the US and abroad.
