Magnolia Room

How much will it cost?

A booking fee of £60.00 is payable to book any ceremony or civil partnership signing. The fee confirms the date, time and place of your ceremony or civil partnership signing and does not come off the final balance. It is a good idea to be really sure about your choice, as moving your booking will mean an amendment fee of £35.00 will be charged.

Please remember that your legal notices of marriage or civil partnership will cost £35.00 each, which you will need to factor into your budget as well as the ceremony/signing fee.

The fee for a marriage or civil partnership ceremony is due at least three months prior to the ceremony. If the ceremony is booked less than three months ahead, the ceremony fee will be due at the time of giving notice. The fee includes two marriage or civil partnership certificates.

The fee for a Naming or Renewal of Vows ceremony is due at least three months before the ceremony date or at the time of booking if the ceremony is in less than three months time. An additional fee of £40 (to increase in 2021) per child is payable for naming ceremonies for more than one child. VAT is included for celebratory ceremonies.
