The Wedding Ceremony

West Lodge Park Hotel holds a Civil Wedding Ceremony Licence and you may find it more convenient and relaxing to hold both your marriage ceremony and reception under the one roof.

Set in 35 acres of parklands, including a renowned arboretum, we have the perfect ingredients for both a civil wedding ceremony and reception alike. The facility to hold your wedding ceremony at West Lodge Park Hotel is normally offered throughout the year on any weekday and during the weekend between 8.00am and 6.00pm. Please note that all the declaratory and contracting words must be said by 5.59pm.

Our licence allows us to hold the ceremony in all of our function rooms, and their various capacities are shown below. No food or beverages may be served in these rooms one hour prior to the ceremony taking place – thereby complying with the legislation.

Music may be played prior and/or during the ceremony and the Registrar specifies that the nature of this music must be secular, suitable, seemly and dignified. Any query regarding specific musical items must be referred to the Registrar.
