Religious Marriages

Many of Historic Chapels Trust buildings chapels are registered for religious marriages. They make great settings for weddings and for ceremonial events. We offer marriages according to the tradition of the building - see the list above - and register your marriage on the spot, as in any church wedding.

Civil Ceremonies

However if you prefer a civil ceremony we offer a fine venue for blessings, celebrations and handfastings after you complete your legal ceremony at a registry office, giving you the best of both worlds. Under UK law we cannot offer civil ceremonies at any of our buildings, as they are registered as places of worship.
