A romantic, chandelier-lit room for your special day.

Venue information

COVID-19 update: Ceremonies can resume from Monday 29 March with a maximum of six people in the wedding party (the couple and four guests). The two witnesses and a photographer (if required) must be included in your guest numbers. It is expected that from Monday 12 April this number will increase to the couple and ten guests.

This will be priced as the Warnham Room. In order to keep everyone safe during the pandemic, ceremonies in this room will be kept simple. We will allocate the most suitable room for your ceremony.

During this period, please bring your own device and speakers to play your chosen music. Please ask your guests to wear face coverings, unless they are exempt from wearing one. The couple do not need to wear a face covering.

The numbers permitted in this room will not increase until social distancing is relaxed, which is expected on 21 June 2021. After this date it is likely that numbers permitted will increase, but will be subject to a full WSCC risk assessment as well as any national guidance and is unlikely to return to pre-pandemic levels this Summer.

Situated on the first floor, this room is furnished with 17th century artefacts. A sunny south-facing room, it is popular with many couples for its chandeliers and pretty wallpaper.

Although a larger room, it can perfectly accommodate any sized ceremony and is normally ideal for 20-40 guests.

Additional information

  • The room can be booked on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, subject to availability.

Where parking is not possible onsite, there are local pay and display car parks for guests in Orchard Street, Northgate and the multi-storey on Avenue de Chartres.
  • The room will be set up for the largest ceremony that day. For example, a wedding with 20 guests could have seating for 40.
