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 the 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
    • 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 during your ceremony.

Readings, vows and music choices must be submitted to the ceremonies team at least one month before your ceremony. Ensure you have completed a ceremony options form.

Please note that your legal ceremony cannot include any religious content.

Other ways to personalise your ceremony further:

  • Special Location: East Sussex has over 100 magnificent venues, which are licensed for marriages and civil partnerships. However if your chosen venue or location is not licensed, this is no problem. We can conduct ceremonies at any suitable location in East Sussex.

           Take a look at Weddings with a difference for further information.

  • Ceremony under the stars: you may like the idea of saying your vows in the moonlight. Ceremonies in East Sussex offers ceremonies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Please note there may be an additional charge for particular times and days. See our fees for further information.
