6th July 2020: We are pleased to announce that with the latest government guidance for small marriages and civil partnerships in place, we are taking bookings for smaller wedding ceremonies at West Lodge Park hotel. Following the 1m+ social distancing with additional measures, our lovely function rooms are available with a maximum capacity of 24 guests, to include the couple and registrars.
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.
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.
Licensed capacities set out in a theatre style for each room for wedding ceremonies:
|John Evelyn Suite||80|
|John Evelyn Room||70|
|John Evelyn Conservatory||10|
|Edward Beale Room||35|
|King Charles Room||35|
For the ceremony to be held at West Lodge Park Hotel the charge is £375.00 which covers the special licence fee paid by the hotel.
The hire of the function room is at an additional cost. However if you are to hold your wedding reception at the hotel the cost of the licensing fee and room hire for the ceremony is £500.00 altogether.
Please note that West Lodge Park Hotel is not responsible for booking or paying the Registrars. The prospective bride and groom must do this direct.
The Registrar is available seven days a week, including bank holidays. To arrange a civil ceremony you need to contact:

All couples are legally required to give notice of marriage to the Superintendent Registrar in the District in which they live 28 clear days before the day of their wedding.
