Same Sex Marriages

After a civil ceremony we offer a fine venue for blessings, celebrations and handfastings after you complete your legal ceremony at a registry office, giving you the best of both worlds. Under UK law we cannot offer civil ceremonies at any of HCT buildings, as they are registered as places of worship.

Some Historic Chapels Trust buildings chapels are registered for religious marriages - see above. We offer marriages according to the tradition of the building  and register your marriage on the spot, as in any church wedding.
