Public Buildings and Register office Wedding Venues

They may not be your first thought, but Public Buildings and Registry Offices can be outstanding wedding venues. They offer a number of surprising advantages – they can be in the very centre of your town or city, often have ample parking and are remarkably cost-effective. The range and scope of Public Buildings and Registry Offices is from listed buildings in landscaped grounds through to modern eco-friendly spaces in the heart of buzzing locations. Some are even buildings that you couldn’t ever enter for any other reason, such as closed libraries and private chapels.

Each building has to meet a set of criteria to be licensed, which means that whether you choose a town hall or a swimming pool, a college refectory, or a castle, a famous club or a pier, you can be confident that all listed public buildings and registry offices are going to meet the standards for your wedding. That makes it easy to go ahead and plan your perfect day!
