Your guide to weddings, blessings and receptions at our historic attractions.
Some of our venues are available for small wedding ceremonies but unfortunately, many of our sites do not meet the required criteria to host a civil ceremony. They are however suited for a blessing or reception.
None of our venues are currently licensed for civil ceremonies. You can however make a one off application to register a site specifically for your ceremony. To find out more about the application process click the link below.
