“There were so many stunning options for photos… we have some amazing shots to help us remember our day”
We have a number of rooms and outside spaces that are licensed to hold your Civil Ceremony or wedding reception… or both!
Have a read through the descriptions below, and click here to view the full floor plans.
With its polished wooden floors and ornate cornicing, the Hall has a grand, yet simple beauty about it. The spiral staircase is perfect for the bride who wants to make an entrance and ‘wow’ her awaiting guests below. The Hall is an impressive setting for your reception, your ceremony or for indoor guest seating if you chose to exchange your vows outside under the Portico.

The dramatic arched windows create a stunning backdrop for your wedding ceremony, whilst the ornate fireplace and décor gives the room a distinguished, yet intimate feel. Or, if you’re inviting lots of small folk to your celebrations, fill it with toys and let the little ones play happily while parents party!

For the ultimate in intimate outdoor romance, say ‘I do’ under the grand central Portico. If the weather’s on our side, your guests can be seated outside to watch your magic moment, or, if there’s a chill in the air, they can take their places in the warmth of the Hall.
