CIVIL CEREMONIES

Civil Ceremonies 2017-10-28T20:35:30+00:00

In 1995 Slepe Hall Hotel was one of the first venues to gain a license to hold civil weddings. Since then, we have grown to be a popular venue for civil ceremonies all year round. We are also now able to offer a choice of four rooms for your ceremony; The Cromwell Room, The Brasserie Restaurant, The Library or the Brunel Suite.

As of 1st January 2003, we are pleased to be able to offer Civil Ceremonies on a Sunday and some bank holidays throughout the year.

THE CROMWELL ROOM CEREMONY

This old school room makes a lovely setting for a wedding ceremony for up to 60 people. The timber panelled room offers a traditional style with a modern twist. The Cromwell Room has it’s own private entrance for guests from the car park and can also be accessed from within the hotel – either paths ideal for the use of the Bride when ready to enter.

The room will hold up to 60 seated guests including the Bride & Groom, registrars and photographer. Hire Cost £200

The Brasserie can hold for 70 seated guests at the ceremony including the Bride & Groom, registrars and photographer. Hire Cost £300.

THE BRUNEL SUITE CEREMONY

In July 2011 Slepe Hall Hotel became licensed to hold wedding ceremonies in the Brunel Suite for 250 guests. Our main function suite offers superb facilities for a totally self-contained room and can be set out in a multitude of designs. The Brunel ‘Suite benefits from its own entrance doors lending itself ideal for the arrival of the wedding party and of course the Bride’s entrance.After the ceremony has been hosted and while you are having your photographs taken we will transform the room into your dining room. This room has its own cloakrooms and a super bar, which means after your wedding breakfast we can transform the room again into your own nightclub to party the night away.

The room can accommodate up to 250 guests seated for the ceremony, although it may be partitioned for smaller parties. This number includes the Bride & Groom, registrars and your photographer. Hire Cost £500.
