Please not that due to Covid-19, numbers of guests in the rooms may have to be reduced and some rooms may not be available, depending on the government and public health advice at the time of the ceremony.

At this time, we are not taking bookings for the Mayor’s Parlour or the Richmond Room as they are not able to be used due to their size or the way they are accessed. We are also unable to use the balcony above the Council Chamber for these reasons.

It is possible that any ceremony may still need to be rescheduled while Covid-19 is present in the population, or moved date, time or room to ensure safety at the venue, or due to reasons outside registrar’s control, such as staff sickness or local lockdown.

We will communicate any restrictions or changes to usual policy to you nearer the date of your ceremony, and you will be able to move your ceremony if you wish to at that point.
