Classic - Timeless - Stunning

Your Wedding Ceremony

This is the ceremonial part at the start of every wedding, and is usually in the form of a Civil Ceremony, Civil Partnership, or marriage and is the legal part of the wedding, officiated by the registrars, and can be held in a choice of FIVE licensed ceremony spaces to suit your wedding style or theme.

You may also opt for a humanist ceremony using a celebrant rather than a registrar, which allows for a ceremony on the lawn.
These are not legal ceremonies, therefore you would need to arrange the legal paperwork separately.
