Priory Hall, Thomas Robinson and Approved Premises ceremonies

Confetti Cones

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.

Please read through the information and make 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 need to be paid for in full no later than three months before the ceremony day.

To make this easier you can pay for your ceremony, order any ceremony 'extras' and submit your choices online

You will need your unique ceremony reference number which is printed at the top right hand corner of our letters.

Celebrate the Royal Wedding with us...

We have introduced a new playlist for couples marrying in the Priory Suite or the Wollescote Suite. Just make a note on your choices form  that you would like our 'Royal Wedding Selection'

Our Royal Wedding Playlist:

As the guests assemble we will play Le Carnaval Des Animaux, Sicilienne (Arr. Hazell)and Apres Un Reve, Op. 7 No. 1  by cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason                           

For the Entrance we will play Eternal Source of Light Divine by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales

For the Signing of the register your guests will enjoy Stand By Me  sung by The Kingdom Choir and I Wanna Dance With Somebody  by Joey Stamper   (chosen because it was their 'first dance' song)

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 £35 or 50 cones for £65

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
