Civil Ceremonies

Civil Ceremonies

We currently hold civil ceremonies at two of our venues.

Cressing Temple Barns

You can host your civil ceremony in the intimate oak panelled Registry Office Room for up to 36 guests. Find out more here:

If you would like to expand your guest list and enjoy reception drinks in our stunning Tudor walled garden, you can choose to marry in either the Wheat or Barley Barn. You can also choose to host your ceremony within the orchard in the walled garden, surrounding by the ambient atmosphere and trickling sounds of the centralised water feature in the Knot Garden.

Essex Records Office

Our Community Room, the Andre Room can host up to 36 guests for your Registry Office wedding. You can choose to upgrade the chairs with our dusky gold sashes for a small additional cost.

If you would like to feel like a movie star, you can make a grand entrance into our Spalding Room, which can seat up 140 guests.

Our Norden Room, accommodating up to 50 guests is an alternative for a light and airy atmosphere.
