Civil ceremonies

Choose the perfect venue for your ceremony from the eight rooms on offer at Edes House.

The perfect venue

Edes House in Chichester, is a Grade 1 listed building dating back to 1696. We have five licensed ceremony rooms, ranging in size from the small intimate ceremony for up to 16, up to our Richmond Room which seats 80.

Guests can arrive via the grand front entrance and there is a lovely welcoming foyer where they can congregate.

Our stewards will be on hand throughout the ceremony to ensure your wedding runs smoothly. 

Ceremony room prices

Prices vary, according to when you decide to hold your ceremony, as well as the size of the room you choose. Prices up until 2018 range from £500-£950.

Ceremony hire is for two hours, which is ideal if you already have a reception venue arranged. It allows for half an hour before the ceremony for your guests to arrive and be seated, and for yourselves to meet the registrars.

The ceremony usually takes just under half an hour, leaving you an hour after the ceremony for photos, drinks, canapés or afternoon tea - the choice is yours.
