Book Your Wedding at the Click of a Mouse


Booking your dream wedding in Cheshire East just got even easier.

Prospective brides and grooms can now set a date as soon as they find their ideal venue, thanks to Cheshire East Council.

In a move believed to be a first for a UK local authority, the Registration Service is providing all premises licensed for civil marriage and civil partnership with internet access to its ceremony diaries.

It means that couples can see at a glance which dates registrars are available, enabling them to make a reservation at the same time as booking their venue.

Councillor Rachel Bailey, Cabinet member with responsibility for safer and stronger communities, said: “The majority of ‘show rounds’ to couples at approved premises – particularly hotels and stately homes – take place during evenings or at weekends.

“Understandably, couples who have often travelled many miles to find their ideal venue can find it frustrating to discover they are unable to fully confirm their reservation until the next working day.

“Linking venues with our Registration Service software is a small change but one which is sure to make the wedding booking process considerably faster and more straightforward.”

Andrew Foster, assistant conference and events manager at Crewe Hall, said: “For the venue to reserve the services of the Registration Service would give peace of mind to the couple to know that all aspects of their special day are reserved for them.

“This would alleviate any problems regarding unavailable dates and reduces the problem of any unexpected date changes.”

Training is now under way to ensure that staff at licensed venues are familiar with the software by autumn, traditionally the peak season for ceremony bookings.

Each year registrars conduct approximately 1,500 ceremonies in 69 approved venues within Cheshire East, ranging from exclusive boutique hotels and restaurants to castles and stately homes.
