Choosing your ceremony

Traditional Ceremony

A Traditional Ceremony is a simple, straightforward ceremony for you which would include all the traditional aspects of a Civil Ceremony.  The Ceremony lasts for 30 minutes and can either be held at a local Register Office or a Licenced Venue of your choice.

Enhanced Ceremony

This Ceremony has all the aspects of a Traditional Ceremony but you are able to add some personal touches.  You may wish to include readings or poems which you can read or include a member of your family or friends to say them for you.  The Ceremony lasts for 30 minutes and can be held at licenced venue of your choice.

Bespoke Ceremony

Our Bespoke package allows you to personalise your ceremony.  While there are legal requirements that have to be met within the ceremony we are able to create a ceremony that is tailor made for you.  You also have an option to have the legal requirements completed on a day prior to the ceremony.

Please discuss with the ceremony booking team your ideas.

These may include:-

  • The legal ceremony and registration
  • A longer ceremony time of 60 minutes
  • Option to hold the non-legal part of your ceremony in a part of the venue that is not approved e.g garden or terrace
  • Rehearsal with your ceremony officer prior to the ceremony
  • Commemorative certificate presented on your special day

Please note: It is the responsibility of the couple to agree any ceremony enhancements with the venue prior to the ceremony.

Please see our information leaflet below for all the information regarding the Bespoke Ceremonies.
