Organising Your Day
Once you have decided to marry at Rodbaston Hall, we will put you in contact with the Local Registrar who will conduct the ceremony for you.
To check their availability please contact;
Staffordshire Registration Service on 0300 111 8001
The registrar has to receive an ‘authority’ for your marriage, which can only be obtained by giving a notice of marriage, which you must do at your local register office at least 15 days before the wedding. Just as with a church wedding you need to select two people to witness the marriage and sign the marriage register during the ceremony.
A civil marriage ceremony cannot have any religious content but you can arrange for individual touches such as non-religious music and readings to be added to the legal wording.
When choosing a civil wedding you have the option to choose music that really speaks to you. The Bride’s entrance is a pivotal moment and you can select a suitably moving piece of music, likewise your first steps as man and wife present a great opportunity to add a little individuality to your ceremony with a stand out piece of music.
Providing it is has no religious content you can choose the music you like. Perhaps you’ll book a String Quartet to play during the ceremony and reception or make a playlist on your iPod which we can pipe through our music system.
The options are there to really make your marriage ceremony meaningful to you as a couple. Once you’ve reserved a date at Rodbaston Hall the next step would be to contact the Local Registrar.
You can contact the registrar’s office directly on 0300 111 8001
