New Wedding Opportunities


Couples planning their wedding or civil partnership can now enjoy the ceremony in some of the stunning gardens of Cheshire East’s licensed hotels or stately homes.

Cheshire East Council has granted permission for the proceedings to be held outside in response to the many requests the registration service receives every year.

After the ceremony the couples will be required to retire to a room inside the venue to exchange legal vows. This is because legislation requires that the legally-binding words of a ceremony are spoken within a room approved for marriage or civil partnerships.

It is hoped that this new option will help hoteliers and other licence holders attract more couples to Cheshire East venues.

Initially the ceremonies will be offered between the months of April and October.

Councillor Rachel Bailey, Cabinet member with responsibility for safer and stronger communities, said: “This decision will give people greater choice of where they hold their marriage or civil partnership ceremony and I am certain that this will be a popular move.

“Initial feedback from licence holders has been very positive and businesses are excited about offering this new facility.

“Many of our stately homes and hotels have beautiful gardens and I am sure they will provide a spectacular setting for weddings and civil partnerships.”
