Civil Wedding Ceremonies

Moor Hall Hotel is the perfect venue for your civil ceremony. We are a licensed civil partnership and civil ceremony venue in Sutton Coldfield and ceremonies can be performed in our delightful Charter Suite, or you can choose to have your ceremony outside in our stunning Sunken Garden.

Our country house hotel is located just north of Birmingham and set at the end of a long tree-lined drive in delightful surroundings with sweeping lawns, landscaped gardens and our historic sunken garden. Our 83 bedroomed hotel also makes a stunning backdrop for your wedding photographs.

Moor Hall Hotel is a popular choice for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships in the Midlands and our newly refurbished Charter Suite has a luxurious contemporary feel that provides the perfect setting for your ceremony for up to 180 guests. We also now offer a semi-exclusive venue for our weddings – ask our Weddings Team for more information.

The first step in arranging a civil marriage or partnership is to provisionally reserve a date and time for your ceremony with us. You will then be issued with an Approval Holder’s letter, which should be taken to the Birmingham Register Office to make a booking for Registrar staff to attend. Our Weddings Team are always on hand to advise every step of the way.

The Sunken Garden

Our historic Sunken Garden has been approved for Marriage and Civil Partnership ceremonies, making it the ideal outdoor civil ceremony venue.

The Sunken Garden at Moor Hall is a woodland, fairy tale setting for your outdoor civil ceremony. The path to the Sunken Garden is lined with verbena and standard roses throughout the summer; and at the entrance stands a magnolia tree, which in springtime is in full bloom. Seasonal shrubbery borders and walls, built using stones from old local buildings, surround the Sunken Garden, along with woodlands with yew and hazel trees, making it a striking setting.

The wedding party will walk the woodland pathway around the back of the Sunken Garden to make a grand entrance at the top of the double staircase, which sits above a beautiful stone grotto.

The Sunken Garden can seat up to 200 guests for the marriage or civil partnership ceremony, and the couple will exchange vows under the classical stone archway which inside is hides two grottos.
