Love & Marriage
What is a civil wedding or ceremony? – It is where the marriage ceremony is conducted by a local council official called a registrar at an approved venue, rather than by a vicar or priest in a church. Pendrell Hall is an approved civil wedding location, licensed for both civil weddings and civil partnerships.
The registrar has to receive an ‘authority’ for your marriage, which can only be obtained by giving a notice of marriage, which you must do at your local register office at least 15 days before the wedding. Just as with a church wedding you need to select two people to witness the marriage and sign the marriage register during the ceremony.
A civil marriage ceremony cannot have any religious content but you can arrange for individual touches such as non-religious music and readings to be added to the legal wording.
Pendrell Hall’s Event Managers will be able to suggest a number of beautiful, romantic readings and provide the microphone audio enhancement ensuring that your guests hear every word.
Music During your Ceremony
It is said that music is the gateway to the soul, by choosing a civil wedding you have the option to choose music that really speaks to you. The Bride’s entrance is a pivotal moment and you can select a suitably moving piece of music, likewise your first steps as man and wife present a great opportunity to add a little individuality to your ceremony with a stand out piece of music.
Providing it is has no religious content you can choose the music you like. Perhaps you’ll book Steelasophical to play in the bay window for the ceremony, or make a playlist on their iPod which they can play for you.
Designed and built to host sophisticated and fabulous parties, The Ballroom at Pendrell Hall is an absolutely spectacular setting for your Wedding Breakfast.
Perhaps one of the most confusing phrases used, the Wedding Breakfast is a delicious celebratory meal enjoyed by the Bride and Groom and their daytime guests following the drinks reception and photographs. It’s also the ideal time for the much-awaited wedding speeches.
The Ballroom is spectacular; the cool blues and crisp whites throughout, complement any wedding theme and the stunning mirrors add a touch of glamour.
With a couple of personal touches, a great soundtrack playing in the background and some delicious food and drink served effortlessly by our professional staff, your guests will have fond memories of your wedding breakfast for many months to come.
Make a Grand Entrance
For the Bride and Groom, entering The Ballroom to the uproarious applause of friends and family is one of the highlights of the day, it is such a joyful moment and for many, it is the first time they see their vision complete; all the table centrepieces, decorations, favours, flowers and guests, in place and looking resplendent!
The Ballroom positively glows, gleaming rays of light beam down from the extraordinarily decorative stained-glass skylights, so large they account for almost a third of the entire ceiling area.
As the sun sets, these stunning skylights are enhanced with an array of changing coloured lights to help create the perfect party atmosphere for your wedding reception and evening entertainment.
