We were really looked after at the Town Hall when we had our wedding ceremony there in November. The team were really helpful in helping us prepare all the little details of the ceremony, from music and flowers, to the legalities and timings. On the actual day we were both so nervous, more than we had anticipated, but the staff put us at ease and were really helpful throughout. All of our guests commented on the beautiful Council Chamber where we got married – it had all the unique beauty of a church wedding but without the religious connotations, plus a really intimate setting for our 65 guests. A day we will never forget!”
