Civil Ceremonies at The PunchBowl Inn

There are so many wonderful ways you can get married nowadays and a Civil Marriage Ceremony is one of those where your Wedding Day takes place at the same venue.

You will need to contact the Registry Office on 01302 364922 who will provide you with available dates of the Registrar who will perform the ceremony, along with details of their fees and available dates.

Once you know the Registrars availability then check back with us to find a suitable date. You will then be invited to meet our co-ordinators when you can discuss the finer details of your day.

The function suite can accomodate 80 guests and the library 30, for Civil Ceremonies.


A room will be provided at The Punchbowl Inn for your Civil Ceremony. We will arrange the seating plan for you and flowers for the suite.

The Registrar will require a private meeting with the Groom 30 minutes before and the Bride 20 minutes before the ceremony. Please do not worry about this meeting as our Punchbowl Inn management team will be with you throughout your special day. You will require two witnesses, these can be family or friends provided they are over 16 years of age.

Before, during and after your Civil Ceremony at The Punchbowl Inn, a selection of music of your choice can be used, please deliver these to us before your special day.

Note that religious content is not permitted at your Civil Ceremony.
