Ceremonies in East Sussex

Let's Get Personal

Have your day, your way!

It is important to us that you have the ceremony you want and there are a number of ways that you can personalise your ceremony.

Readings: You can include readings or poetry that can be read either by one of your guests, you or your Celebrant.

Personal Vows: What's more personal than writing your own vows? Being able to tell your partner exactly what they mean to you

           (personal vows will be said in addition to the legal vows)

Music: Why not have your favourite songs included in your ceremony. Music is usually played at the following times:

    • Entrance of Bride/Groom/Couple
    • Signing of the register/schedule
    • Exit of couple

If your ceremony is taking place at a Register Office you will need to provide the music and nominate one of your guests to play this during the ceremony. If your ceremony is taking place anywhere else, please discuss your music options with your venue. Alternatively, you may opt to have live musicians play during your ceremony.

Please note that the law does not allow religious content to be included in civil marriage or civil partnership ceremonies. 

To include your personal additions we ask that you complete the relevant Ceremony Options Form and send to us at least one month before your ceremony. Please do not complete this until you have Given Notice. 


Choose where and when you celebrate

Special Location: East Sussex has over 90 magnificent venues, which are licensed for marriages and civil partnerships. However if your chosen venue isn't licensed, no problem. We can conduct ceremonies at any suitable location* in East Sussex. Take a look at Weddings with a difference for further information.
