Civil Ceremonies

From the quiet intimacy of the Red Dining Room to the natural, open-air setting of the Rose Arbour, there are several locations in and around Friars Court licenced for the celebration of marriage ceremonies; there is no obligation to have the reception here too although the majority of couples do.

Ceremony hire covers 3 hours: an hour before the service for guests to gather; the hour during which the ceremony takes place and the remaining time for drinks, socialising and photographs. The hire also covers all the variously-sized locations making it easier to move the ceremony should numbers, preference or the weather make that neccessary. Currently, the licenced indoor locations are: the Garden Room, Old Laundry, Red Dining Room, Stone Barn and Entrance Hall; Friars Court is also one of few venues in the county offering a truly 'outdoor' wedding in the Summer House, Entrance Porch and, of course, the very popular Rose Arbour.
