Be the first one to tell everyone about the experience you’ve had with this supplier.
Our stunning Main Hall has all the grandeur you’d expect of a Regency building – beautiful high ceilings, stained glass windows, period features and an irresistible sense of space and light – all of which combine to give your ceremony a real ‘WOW’ factor.
The Main Hall can seat up to 200 guests and with an entrance through the impressive columned facade you will be the stars in your very own love story.
Weddings of up to 60 guests can be held in our Mayor’s Parlour. With huge sash windows offering glimpses of the River Tamar and a feature fireplace, this is the idyllic space for a more intimate ceremony.
Adjacent to the Guildhall is Devonport Column with a viewing platform at 124feet – one of the highest public viewing points in the city – offering spectacular vistas towards Dartmoor and out to sea…and a great view of your guests on the Plaza below, toasting your nuptials with a glass of bubbly.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
On of our previous weddings used Golden Syrup tins and other knick-knacks that you can find in your cupboard on their tables for flowers.
