Civil Ceremony Rates

Civil Ceremonies

There are eight areas currently licensed for Civil Marriages:

Inside Locations (fire officer's limit)

  1. Entrance Hall (maximum 15 guests)
  2. Red Dining Room (maximum 20 guests)
  3. Winterhalter Conservatory (maximum 20 guests)
  4. Garden Room (maximum 80 guests)
  5. Stone Barn (maximum 150 guests)

Outside Locations (unlimited numbers)

  1. Entrance Porch
  2. Rose Arbour
  3. Swedish Summerhouse

N.B. Whilst Friars Court has licensed outdoor ceremony areas the registrars stipulate that an indoor location must be available in case of wet weather. The Garden Room should always be available the ‘short notice’ back-up plan whereas the Stone Barn may not be. If a ceremony is to be conducted in the Garden Room but numbers exceed the fire officer’s limit, some guests will have to stand outside. Silver Pear Weddings recommends hire of a ‘marquee extension’ to ensure adequate cover for all guests.

Civil Ceremony Only Hire covers use of the ceremony location and grounds for a maximim a 3 hour period. For legal reasons hire commences 1 hour before the Ceremony. The registrars will not permit food or drink within the licenced area before the ceremony.

N.B. On Saturdays during the peak season months from May to August restrictions on ceremony and hire timings will apply. Please enquire.
