Best Western Danby Lodge Hotel is an approved venue for civil ceremonies.
Please find below some helpful information in relation to organizing your civil ceremony.
You may already be aware that there is a requirement to give 3 months notification to a Registrar. If you wish to be married in a venue other than the Registry Office, it is necessary for you to contact the registry office for the area in which the venue is located in order that the ceremony may be approved.
A civil ceremony can be held in a Registry Office or some other venue that is approved by a Registrar. A Registrar will also have to be available to solemnise the marriage.
If you want to get married in a venue other than the Registry Office you should contact the Registry Office for the district the venue is located in to arrange to have it approved. This may involve the Registrar inspecting the venue.
Venues such as marquees, private dwellings or the open air are not acceptable. The Guidelines for Marriage Venues are available on the General Registrar’s website. To ensure the venue is approved in time for your wedding you should arrange for the approval well in advance of notifying the Registrar.
There will be an additional fee to the Registrar for a civil ceremony held in a venue other than a Registry Office and Civil Ceremonies can only be held Monday to Friday.
