The City Council provide a complimentary flower arrangement on the registrars table for a ceremony choosing colours that match the principal parties' outfits.
We will provide staff to assist the bridal party throughout the ceremony.
We can provide a CD player if a particular piece of music is to be played during the ceremony providing this is discussed and approved by the Registrar in advance.
The bridal car may use the City Council car park but there is strictly no parking for any guests.
No confetti is to be thrown in the Council House.
An ideal place to take wedding photographs could be either nearby Priory Park or Bishop's Palace Gardens, which are both surrounded by the City Walls and will provide a lovely setting for those memorable pictures.
