Marriages And Civil Partnerships - Weddings
We are exceptionally busy for bookings at present, and we currently have no availability for bookings in our ceremony rooms until after 1 November 2021.
We try to respond to all enquiries within 10 working days. Please do not send emails to chase a response as these add to our backlog and delay our ability to respond promptly.
Numbers in our ceremony rooms
We can accommodate our usual numbers in each of the ceremony rooms. Please see the table below for the numbers.
Requests to bring more guests than the room allows will not be permitted, so please make sure you that you only invite the number of guests appropriate for each room limit.
Staff will not discuss requests to increase numbers and will not tolerate rude or aggressive behaviour. If you are dissatisfied with the decisions made, then you will be directed to the feedback link on our website.

Staff have been working hard to accommodate ceremonies where people have had to reschedule. If your ceremony was cancelled due to lockdown, we're happy to rearrange this for you.
Please note that if you reschedule your ceremony to a time when there has been a fee increase, you will be asked to pay the fee that is current at the time of the ceremony.
Everyone attending the wedding, apart from the bride or groom , should wear a face covering. Those delivering a reading at the ceremony can remove their covering whilst they are reading.
We're receiving a significant number of enquiries so please contact us by email because we need to deal with ceremonies in date order.
Please include your ceremony date and venue when emailing us.
