How exciting. After all our efforts preparing the Assembly Rooms and getting the word out there about our refurbishments and ability to cater to large and small weddings, we have booked our first wedding! In fact, TWO on the same day – May 31st 2024.

We will be announcing more and more of our bookings (as we have had quite a few) for the first month of January 2024.

How many people get engaged over Christmas in the UK?

In the UK, Christmas Day is so popular. Approximately 25% of couples get engaged in December! Many of those who married in 2022, when asked, said that Christmas Day was their engagement day.

Christmas has earned its reputation as the season of proposals, with a notable spike in engagement happenings. According to a survey conducted by The Knot, a leading wedding planning platform, a staggering 19% of couples get engaged during the holiday season, making it the most popular time of the year for proposals

We are so pleased to have lots of couples through the doors at our WEDDING OPEN DAY on January 28th and from our OPEN DAY on January 14th.

We look forward to welcoming our new couples and chatting with them about their details in the coming months.

Choosing a wedding ceremony venue is a difficult thing. Here a the Council House, we have everything: exclusivity, sheltered, historic, beautiful, central and beautiful.

What should I do after choosing a wedding ceremony venue?

UKBRIDE and websites like this have a great forum of information that can help with planning. Here is one to do with “what to do next”.

  • Check legal requirements regarding marriage certificates and other requirements such as Banns/Notice
  • Set a realistic budget, and decide between yourselves and parents who will pay for what
  • Choose your Maid/Matron of Honour, Best Man and other attendants (make sure they’re available and willing)
  • Compile a provisional guest list to get a rough idea of numbers
  • Discuss ceremony and reception venue options and arrange to view them

This should be a good start!
