Can you really have a beautiful, meaningful and personal Wedding Ceremony or Civil Partnership wherever you want and whenever you want it?
Yes you can - with Cumbria Ceremonies! 

Yes you can - with Cumbria Ceremonies!Y
  We want your wedding or civil partnership ceremony to be unique and special, incorporating your individual personalities. We will help you to create a spectacular day for you, your friends and family to remember.
 
You choose where and what time to hold 
your Ceremony, so you can be at the top 
of a hill, in a lovely venue, at home, or in 
any place with special meaning to you.
The  legal part takes 20 minutes in your 
local registry office with two witnesses 
either on the morning of, or a day or so 
before your Ceremony.
 
You can have your ceremony at one of
the many beautiful licensed premises or you can select a venue that isn't licensed, creating a huge range of possibilities. There are many beauty spots to choose from in Furness and The Lakes.

 
You will first have to give your registrar notice that you intend to marry, then make arrangements with the registrar for the date and time of your registration as soon as possible.
 
Meanwhile, we will meet to discuss all that you want for your ceremony on the day.
 
At Cumbria Ceremonies the emphasis is on freedom of choice. If desired, we can offer a variety of symbolic extras which can be incorporated such as unity-candles, sand and roses. Above all, we believe ceremonies should be fun, memorable and personal and we encourage creativity.

Together we will create your dream ceremony, be it traditional or a more contemporary alternative.
