Your choices for your ceremony

Once you have both given 'notice' at your local register office(s) we will confirm your booking with us in writing and send you an information pack outlining the choices and options available to help you to personalise your ceremony and make your day extra special.

Once you have read through the information and made your selections the 'choices form needs to be completed and returned to Priory Hall as soon as possible, and no later than three months before your ceremony so that we can prepare your ceremony in advance.

Ceremonies must be paid for in full no later than three months before the ceremony day. To make this easier you will shortly be able to complete your choices form and make the payment on-line. You will also be able to request and pay for any of our ceremony 'extras' on this form.

Confetti Cones

Ceremony 'Extras'...

Confetti Cones

Why not add that extra special touch?

Confetti Cones are available for Priory Hall and Thomas Robinson ceremonies:

25 cones for £30 or 50 cones for £55

As your guests exit the ceremony room they can help themselves to a cone full of confetti to shower the happy couple with. Our cones are filled with gorgeous Shropshire flower petals. All of our petals are 100% natural, eco-friendly and biodegradable, just like blossom off the tree! They are all completely natural in colour so no dyes are ever added.

Made from ivory parchment paper, our cones are personalised to show your names and the date of your ceremony

Marriage order of service and certificate

Order of ceremony leaflets

Why not enhance your ceremony with an order of ceremony leaflet handed to your guests as they arrive; only £20 for 25 leaflets or £25 for 50 leaflets

Printed on a quality soft gold coloured parchment paper, the order of ceremony leaflet will inform your guests of the music being played and will enable them to follow the ceremony as it progresses

Historical facts about Priory Hall, Priory Park and the ancient St’ James Ruins or Thomas Robinson Building are printed on the reverse telling your guests about your chosen wedding venue

Please order at the time of returning your choices forms.

This stationery will be produced as shown based on your selection of music. No further amendments can be offered.

Commemorative certificates

Souvenir certificates to commemorate any event are available from Priory Hall for £5. Commemorative certificates are presented after the signing of the register making a perfect ‘keepsake’ for the happy couple, parents, bridesmaids or best man.

Printed on a soft gold coloured bordered parchment paper the certificate is presented in a textured, gold foil stamped presentation folder.

Signed by the couple, their witnesses and registrars, the personalised wording captures the details of the day.

Complete the application form when applying for a certificate and return it with your completed choices forms. Don't forget to include the payment! Please note commemorative certificates are not legal documents and cannot be used as proof of identity.

Capture your moment on DVD!

Couples holding their ceremony at Priory Hall or the Thomas Robinson Building can have their ceremony recorded straight to DVD from our cameras in the Priory Suite, the Castle Suite and the Wollescote Suite. We burn the live footage onto a DVD for you to take away with you on the day. You can be watching the moment you say 'I do' at your wedding reception with your friends and family. It take a few minutes for us to do this following your ceremony so by the time you have had your photographs in the park we will have the DVD ready for you.

Broadcast your ceremony live on the internet

Our web cams are now available to book for your ceremony in the Priory Suite, the Castle Suite and the Wollescote Suite. Couples can choose to invite friends and family unable to attend the ceremony to share in their special day and watch as their vows are exchanged live on the internet.
