Offering a choice of options for your wedding ceremony, you can hold your wedding ceremony in our Ballroom, oak-panelled dining room, library or even outside in our grounds (weather permitting on the day of course!). There are several set-ups you can have if you decide to hold your ceremony on the lawns - we can help arrange a variety of chairs and our talented florist can advice on floral delights to enhance the already beautiful setting (additional cost applies).
Following the news on the 15th March 2022, that outdoor civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies are becoming permanent in England and Wales, now is the perfect time to be booking your outdoor wedding ceremony!
Anyone holding a civil ceremony in a licensed venue can now be married outdoors. The permanent change to the law will allow for all venues licensed to hold civil marriage and partnership ceremonies to hold these ceremonies outside. Previously, couples needed to be under a permanent structure that was licensed for the ceremony to be legally binding.
This was originally a temporary measure in England and Wales to allow for larger guest numbers and reduced risk of transmission during the pandemic. It was due to be in place from July 2021 – April 2022. This permanent change will come in from 6th April 2022 and provide greater flexibility and choice for couples and for businesses in the wedding sector.
A decision will be made in conjunction with yourselves and the Superintendent Registrar by checking weather forecasts 24 hours prior to the ceremony, as to whether or not the ceremony can go ahead outdoors. This will also include taking into account the condition of the grounds which may have been affected by rain in the preceding days.
Should it not be possible to proceed outdoors, we will continue with plans for your ceremony to take place in the most suitable licensed room inside the hotel. This will be the Ballroom, Restaurant or Library (depending on your numbers). Chiavari style chairs (as shown below) can be hired at an additional cost.

We are able to host ceremonies on any day (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day). It is your responsibility to make a booking with the Superintendent Registrar. (Ceremony fees are payable separately to the Registrar). Ceremonies are held from 12:00 noon (Monday-Saturday) and from 2:00pm on Sunday.
We can arrange a wide selection of drinks for your guests on arrival, as a celebration drink after your ceremony and during the wedding breakfast. We have a number of different selections available or if you prefer, we can tailor a selection to suit your requirements. As the perfect accompaniment to your arrival / post-ceremony drinks we are pleased to offer a selection of canapés that can be served to your guests on the lawns whilst the photographs and formalities of the day are taking place.
Wedding breakfasts are prepared from the finest local produce and every care is taken to offer special dishes for those of your guests who are vegetarian or require a special diet.
