Civil Ceremonies – 2018/2019

The Castle Hotel has been granted approval to be used for civil ceremonies. Marriage in the presence of the Superintendent Registrar may take place in our Tudor Suite, a magnificent carved oak-panelled room and Wedgwood Suite, a room full of natural light with a beautiful ornate ceiling. We can accommodate up to 150 guests for a civil ceremony and seated wedding breakfast and up to 250 for an evening party.

There is no mystique to a civil ceremony but there are certain rules and regulations that must be adhered to which we can guide you through, please note that the registrars say on any issue is final.

The law allows couples to marry on any day of the year, including Christmas Day, and any time between the hours of 8am and 6pm. Please note that this will always be dependant on the availability of the registrar as well as the hotel. At the moment Lichfield registry office will marry people in Tamworth up until late afternoon.

The advantage of holding your ceremony within the hotel is that although not a religious ceremony there are many refinements and special touches that cannot be performed in a Registry Office. If you would like to adopt some of the traditions from a church ceremony such as the bride being given away, the playing of non-religious music or an approved reading, these can also be accommodated.

Please be aware that the hotel can only perform civil ceremonies on the condition that they are followed by a reception held in the hotel. Please see our tariff page for prices. If you are having a civil ceremony without a formal sit down meal to follow it is important to consider what you have planned for you and your guests prior to an evening celebration starting. We are happy to help and advise you on this, as it is very important.

Lichfield registry office look after civil ceremonies at the hotel, their number is 0300 111 8001. It is your responsibility to book and liaise with the registrar.
