We may provide you with the option of having a civil wedding ceremony, a handfasting, or even a blessing with your own personal vows. The arrangement of the venue is quite adaptable, and it may be themed in the color and design of your choosing. There are several options for hosting a wedding at the top of Glastonbury Tor, including town hall, church, or some other suitable location.
The tor is a popular place for weddings because of its unique setting. The summit area is open all year round, while the lower slopes are covered in spring with bluebells and early flowers such as rhododendrons. In summer, the upper parts become a meadow while the lower areas are green with oak trees and bushes. Winter visitors can see for miles across Somerset and into Dorset, with hills, valleys, and villages all laid out before them. Even if it's not exactly what you were expecting, the atmosphere at a Glastonbury Tor wedding makes it special.
There are a number of reasons why getting married at the top of Glastonbury Tor is a good idea. First of all, there is always going to be a lot of people around to watch you say "I do". Second, it gives your marriage license extra significance because it marks you out as being equal members of the community who deserve the same rights as everyone else. And finally, it's an experience that you will never forget!
A marriage or civil partnership ceremony can take place on the river, however owing to licensing requirements, this would be confined to one of our static vessels (i.e. a non-sailing boat). You may have chosen the ideal location for your wedding ceremony, but you need assistance selecting your wedding breakfast or evening party site. We recommend contacting several venues to compare prices and styles of services before making your decision.
The only requirement for a marriage ceremony on board a vessel is that it must be licensed as a restaurant by the local authority. This means that you will need to apply for a license from Richmond Council to use their premises as a venue for your wedding. If you are planning to hold your ceremony outside Richmond then there are other authorities in England and Wales who issue licenses for marriages held on land. They include counties, cities, towns and villages. The cost of applying for a license with these bodies varies depending on the size of the ceremony.
Marriages on board a sailing ship are not permitted under English law. However, if you are married abroad and want to convert your marriage into an English civil partnership then such ceremonies are available at British embassies and high commissions around the world.
There are many beautiful locations within Richmond where you could hold your ceremony. Our website includes links to all the important information you need about marrying here. There is also a list of recommended wedding vendors near the end of this article.
We are fully suited to produce a fantastic and memorable day for you, thanks to our extensive expertise organizing some of the area's most stunning events. Civil Wedding Licences are available at Hercules Hall, the Tudor Room, and Castell Deudraeth. There is also a dedicated wedding co-ordinator who can help with ideas and planning.
You can marry on Portmeirion itself, or anywhere within 30 miles including Llandudno, Harlech, Portmadoc, Beddgelert and Porthmadog. If you choose to marry elsewhere, we will provide transport for your guests to and from the other locations.
You can choose between traditional vows in front of only family and friends, or a more informal service with just you and your partner in attendance. We can also arrange a service with music played during the reading of the prayers.
The law allows for marriages to be valid for as long as you want them to be. A couple can divorce themselves from their marriage by signing a form which is then sent to the registrar's office. The process takes about six weeks to complete.
