Registry Office Wedding Fair

By Shirley Ludford On Sunday 5th February 2017

Couples planning to tie the knot can discover on Sunday 26th February all they need to know about having the perfect wedding day during the Swindon Register Office Wedding Fayre, which follows last year’s highly successful inaugural event.

The free-to-enter event at the Civic Offices in Euclid Street from 11am to 3pm features tours of the Register Office’s three stunning wedding ceremony rooms, a wedding fashion show and the chance to win a free wedding ceremony in the venue’s Garden Room.

More than 30 local businesses will be promoting the wedding-related services they offer, including florists, bridal shops and cake-makers.

Adults attending will be offered a free glass of bubbly, and a discounted deposit price of £25 from £40 is on offer for those who book a wedding ceremony date with the venue on the day. 

Expert staff will be on hand to discuss specifics for couples’ wedding days, including anything to do with wedding law. 

The three ceremony rooms that visitors can tour are:

  • The Garden Room, which overlooks the Civic Rose Garden, accommodates up to 85 people
  • The Juno Room, which also overlooks the Civic Rose Garden, accommodates up to 20 people
  • The Registrar’s Office, which can accommodate the happy couple and up to four guests

The Register Office will also be showcasing their new service which will allow couples to complete the legal marriage at the register office followed by a ceremony at any location of their choice. 

Mamie Beasant, Swindon Borough Council’s Superintendent Registrar, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming people to the Wedding Fayre and showing couples the three wonderful ceremony rooms that we have at the Register Office which they could use. People can also speak to a host of local businesses who will be at the fayre giving information about the wedding services they offer. My expert staff will also be available to answer any questions about weddings. We know just how important wedding days are for everybody and one of the aims of the fayre is to show off the fantastic facilities that we offer, as well as giving our expert advice to couples.”

Cllr David Renard, Swindon Borough Council Leader, added: “Last year’s event was a huge success and I would encourage anyone who may be planning a wedding, or just wants to learn more about this great service, to come along and see how the Register Office can contribute to that special day.”
