Civil Ceremony

The trend now is not to get married in a church or registry office, but at the venue of your reception usually a hotel. The obvious advantages to getting married in the same venue, as well as cost, is that it is a lot less stressful dealing with one organisation for the majority of the day. The setting is perfect at the The Jersey Farm Country Hotel and a number of rooms are on offer to hold the ceremony, separate to the reception room or in the same room. There are options for pre wedding drinks with canopes just to make the day last a little longer and make it even more special and grand.

To hold your wedding ceremony at The Jersey Farm Country Hotel there is a charge, which includes the chairs arranged as you require, artificial flower pedestals to decorate the room, decorative table for the service with fresh flower arrangement, use of ‘CD’ Music system and of course personal attention of our staff to help with arrangements on the day.
