Civil Weddings

We are registered for Civil Weddings and should you choose this option, just imagine the simplicity of holding your Marriage Ceremony and Reception in the same Place.

With a choice of two rooms we can accommodate a small intimate service for 35 guests or a larger service for 130 guests and for that little bit extra we are pleased to offer complimentary white damask chair covers for the Bride and Groom during the wedding ceremony together with a white ring pillow.

We will require the minimum of one hour to change the room around for the Wedding Breakfast (depending on the number of guests), during this time we invite you to have your photographs taken, and your guests can partake in refreshments.

Should you decide to hold your ceremony at the Whitcliffe Hotel please check that the date and room are available. Make a provisional reservation and before confirming, contact the Superintendent Registrar to establish they are available for your chosen date and time.
