This is the most important part of your wedding day. We have three stunning rooms licensed for ceremonies. These beautiful rooms provide an elegant setting for this special time. The ceremony normally takes place in the same room as the wedding breakfast. On completion of the ceremony, our banqueting team will prepare the room for the meal while your photographer organises the photos and your guests are served reception drinks. The timing of this is crucial to the planning of the rest of the day. Before you book your time with the registrar, we advise you to meet our Wedding Team who will discuss the running order of your day to ensure all of your day runs seamlessly.
The maximum numbers for the ceremony are:
Music Room: 95 | Gilberts Restaurant: 60 | Drawing Room: 40
The booking of the ceremony is not something the hotel can undertake on your behalf. The above timings are guidelines only. Other timings are available and these are subject to the Registrar and hotel availability.
The hotel charges £200 for your civil ceremony, when booking a package.
You can bring your own choice of CDs to provide background music for your wedding or you may wish to hire a pianist to play the hotel’s grand piano.
Alternatively, we can provide a string quartet to provide additional style and elegance for the occasion. If you are using the Music Room for your event, the quartet will entertain your guests from the minstrels’ gallery and announce your grand entrance.
