Civil ceremonies & partnerships

If you are thinking of getting married within the Hotel, our Connaught Suite is licensed for 60 guests and the Prince Albert Suite is licensed for 180 guests for a ceremony. These numbers should include the registrars and Bride & Groom.

The Prince Albert Suite is our largest licensed civil ceremony room and air conditioned, whilst The Connaught offers air conditioning and natural daylight and both can be laid out to a plan to suit your needs. We will be happy to hold a date for you on a provisional basis for 14 days, while you decide if the Hotel is suitable for your plans.

The cost to hire the Connaught Suite is dependant on our availability and the time of year with rates from £500 including chair covers and a red carpet, or from £600 for the Prince Albert Suite. Please ask for a firm quote when enquiring.

Registrar’s fees apply, and need to be paid directly to the registrars.
