- Venue Overview
Mayor’s Reception Room
The imposing Town Hall was built in traditional Victorian style in 1887 and offers a high standard of accommodation to everyone attending a ceremony.
The front entrance with its wide stone steps under a magnificent portico leads into the pillared entrance hall where a warm welcome awaits you.
The circular Mayor’s Reception Room with its beautiful domed ceiling and original features is on the first floor in the bell tower and is decorated in sumptuous reds and gold. The patterned floor has been recently restored and the room refurbished to a high standard and to beautiful effect. Always enhanced with arrangements of flowers, the room will accommodate a maximum of 30 -35, mainly standing, and is particularly well suited to the smaller, more intimate wedding party.
It is approached by a grand oak panelled staircase with a stunning stained-glass window on the half landing which provides an excellent backdrop for your special wedding photographs.
For those of you who have difficulties managing the stairs there is a small lift which offers access to the first floor, but can only accommodate small non-motorised wheelchairs.
The Court Room
The Court Room is situated on the ground floor of the Victorian Town Hall; entered via the stone steps and through the pillared hall way displaying its original terrazzo flooring. Once in the Court Room, which is carpeted in blue and cream with blue curtains, you will see the two elaborate chandeliers. The seating for 60 guests is arranged with a central aisle, which allows for the bridal party to process in a traditional manner, to the dais where the ceremony takes place. On the dais are seats for the bride and groom with two pedestals of silk and dried flowers and the registrar’s table where the register is signed and photographs taken.
Please note that this room is not available at all times, generally only on Fridays and Saturdays.
