Civil Wedding Ceremony Venue
Here at Hillscourt we have several suitable rooms in which to hold your Civil Ceremony. This means that we can cater for a small intimate group or a large congregation of up to a maximum of 100 guests, depending upon your individual requirements. Each room could be laid out with a centre aisle, so the Bride can be escorted into the room. Your guests will be seated before the ceremony begins. You may organise your own ushers if you wish. Food or drink will not be allowed in the room.
There is the facility for music of your choice to be played. This is usually for the Bride's Arrival, Signing of the Register and the Bride and Groom's Departure. Any music played must be secular in nature, with no religious content.
Our Civil Ceremony package includes the following:
- Suitable size room for the ceremony
- Pre-wedding ceremony consultations with our experienced staff
- Room for the bride if required
- Some floral display
- Photographer access
Once a date has been reserved, you will need to contact the Registrar; this is your responsibility. The fees for the ceremony are paid direct to Worcestershire Registration Service.
The Registrar will arrive at the centre approximately 45 minutes before the ceremony. Both the Bride and Groom will need to be seen separately by the Registrar before the ceremony can commence. The content of each ceremony must be agreed by the Registrar.
There will be a room hire charge of £500 for Civil Ceremonies. This will be payable as a non-refundable deposit paid at the time of booking, in addition to the deposit for the Reception.
