We are temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic but are very much hoping that we will be permitted to open for viewings soon.

The ceremony at the Temple was beyond words
The day was wonderful and the ceremony at the Temple was beyond words. I should like to say a huge thank you to the Duty Manager, Ian. He was so helpful both before the ceremony, and in the days afterwards when I called to collect some things that had been left. We had a couple of hiccoughs along the way, (caused by the closure of roads around the rugby stadium), but this all contributed to making the day memorable. Would you please pass on Laura, Matthew's and my thanks to the young man who looked after the bar and to Ian - who helped to make the day very special. With many thanks

We can't recommend Temple of Peace enough
We wanted a unique wedding that we could make feel as 'us' as possible and avoid the barns and stately homes that wouldn't have felt right. We absolutely got something truly special by picking Temple of Peace for our wedding and we can't recommend them enough.

Thank you for such a fabulous day getting married at the Temple of Peace! The hall looked absolutely glorious, and all of our guests commented on how beautiful everything was. Thank you for all your help in the weeks leading up to the day, we couldn't have asked for more- in the end everything went off without a hitch and I couldn't stop smiling all day.
