On the day


There are probably other couples using the facilities on the same day, so to keep the ceremony room looking tidy, please ensure that your guests wait until they are outside before they throw confetti. If possible please use bio degradable confetti.

Party poppers and spray string should not be used. Please check with registration staff as some local restrictions apply.

Photographers and Video

Videos can be taken at any point before, during and after the ceremony provided that it does not interrupt the proceedings.

Please inform the registration staff so that the cameraman can be directed to a suitable position. Your guests are welcome to take photographs before and after the ceremony, but the ”official” photographer should speak to registration staff to agree mutually acceptable points at which photographs can be taken during the ceremony.

You can arrange to take photographs of your special day in and around the Castle Complex, including inside the unique historical locations of the Great Hall and Queen Eleanor’s Garden by gaining prior permission, there may be a fee payable. Please contact the Great Hall team on: 01962 846476, email, or message us on Facebook.

Please note the main door to the Great Hall is a public access/exit and this entrance cannot be blocked at any time.
