For those of you who have chosen to hold a civil ceremony we have two fabulous rooms to choose from. We are licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies in both the Guardroom and Ballroom.
The Guardroom, traditionally the grand entrance to the Castle, has high ceilings and open fires on either side. The walls are adorned with a fine display of military treasures providing an impressive but romantic setting for your nuptials. The grand staircase descends two floors and makes for a dramatic entrance by the bride with guests looking on in wonder. The Guard Room is licensed for up to 100 guests.
The Ballroom has floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows, ornate chandeliers and Gothic archways, creating an elegant, fairytale setting for your ceremony. The room is modelled on Lincoln Cathedral and is licensed for up to 120 guests.
With such high ceilings it is also the perfect setting for Asian ceremonies – having the capacity for a splendid Mundup and grand entrance for the bride and groom.
The marquee comes into it’s own for the larger wedding party with the flexibility required to create the day of your dreams.
We welcome all faiths, religions and civil partnerships at Belvoir and have conducted many types of ceremonies over the years.
The best way to decide which is the location for you is to let us show you around in person. Contact us on 01476 871031 firstname.lastname@example.org
