Civil ceremonies

We would be delighted to welcome couples who would like to be married here at Kirkley Hall. The licence we have currently extends to all of our function rooms and terrace; however the law does not allow ceremonies in marquees or on the lawn.

One you have confirmed the date and time of your marriage at Kirkley Hall, you must contact the Ceremonies Co-ordination Team immediately to book a registrar to conduct the ceremony by calling: 01665 602870 or emailing: alnwickreg@northumberland.gov.uk

The Superintendent Registrar will then confirm whether they can attend and conduct the ceremony. You will then receive, within 7 days of your request, confirmation from the Registrar along with details of legal requirements and the fee to be paid.

A civil ceremony must have no religious connotations. A full set of restrictions and requirements are available on request from the Registrar.

You can find out more about the legal requirements for civil ceremonies on Northumberland County Council’s website or by contacting the Ceremonies Coordination Team.
