Civil Ceremonies

Ceremonies can be held on any day of the year with the exception of Christmas Day & Boxing Day.
Please contact the registrars directly to check their availability. You will need to have a ceremony time booked & confirmed with the relevant officiant before confirming your day with us. We always recommend a ceremony time of 2.30pm, this will allow guests time to travel and have some lunch before arriving. However your time is completely up to you.

Dorney Court is set within beautiful manicured gardens which is a breath taking location to say I do! If you wish to use the lawns for your ceremony you will need to book the DIAMOND PACKAGE directly with the registrars.

On the day, depending on weather will depend if the Garden ceremony can take place. If weather is increment or lawns damp we will revert to your plan B option as provided by yourself within your planning document.
