If having hundreds of guests is not your cup of tea and you decided to have a smaller ceremony at your local register office with just a close circle of family and friends then hopefully you’ll find this information useful.

The Register Office currently offers 2 packages: Standard Service and Premium Service. Standard wedding ceremonies are held at the Civic Office in Waterdale on Wednesdays only. This is for small ceremonies for the bride and groom and 2 witnesses only.


The Great Kitchen or the Priory Suite

Among a few more benefits, the Premium Service offers wedding ceremonies at the Great Kitchen and the Priory Suite. The Great Kitchen holds 40 guests and has access to a secluded courtyard for photographs, and the Priory Suite holds 50 guests. More details on the council’s website, link at the bottom of the page.
