We will set up the area for the ceremony, provide a meeting room for the registrar and two tables and chairs for the registrars in the room chosen for the ceremony.

The registrar will arrive approximately 45/30 minutes before your ceremony. A short interview is conducted with the bride and groom separately in a private room.

The Registrars will make an additional charge to come out to the venue on the day. Please contact Gloucestershire Registration Service on 01242 532455 or log on to to find out more details.

It is mindful to note that the date and time of your ceremony needs to be agreed with them at the same time as booking the barn
