Hi trying to find a nice registry office to get married very cheaply next year! We are in Lancashire but could travel to tie it in with holiday, would only be small approx 6 adults 3 kids
So far found Harrogate and Kendal registry offices look nice grin

Bakewell any good?

You can get married at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park now. Beautiful!

Ooh I'll have a look! I think the fees for the reg attending the sculpture park plus the parks fees will make it too costly hmm but I'll have a peek!

Warwick has lovely gardens. The room itself is a little dated though.

There's some lovely buildings in the Cotswolds. Stroud, Cheltenham, Cirencester or Moreton-in-the-marsh?

Barrow in Furness?

Or Alnwick and Berwick are both lovely offices up in Northumberland.

Was going to say Harrogate but I see you've already gotit on your list. Went to a lovely wedding there a few years ago.

Harrogate registry office is lovely (I got married there so might be a tad biased).

You can have lovely pictures taken outside on the stray and there are plenty of nice places for lunch afterwards if that's what you're planning

Oakham Castle?

Great Malvern is lovely and set in a beautiful park with lake, etc. Good for a holiday too smile

Cheltenham registry office is not nice(60's concrete at its worst!)
LIncoln is nice and Bath.

bluemagpie Wed 16-Oct-13 17:55:37

Hmm, maybe I was thinking of Gloucester or somewhere then!

Glasgow's is the former Italian Consulate. All fancy with statues etc dotted around.

Bath is lovely - we got married there.

neverlookback Wed 16-Oct-13 18:57:43

Wow thanks they all sound lovely! Will start to look at them all now!

MudCity Wed 16-Oct-13 19:23:22

Carlisle or Brighton would be my choice. Good luck!

cockington court ..Devon

I see wanda beat me to it - Cheltenham reg office is one of the worst Ive ever seen.

Definitely not Gloucester, registry office is not nice there either.

I got married at Kendal Registry Office!

Loved the dusty pink on the walls and I thought it had a very "war time" vibe. The free car park outside was a big plus for the guests. My photos turned out lovely. (I just wish that on the day I took a photo of the outside but I forgot to ask the photographer or one of the guests for one) sad

Congratulations thanks

Heartlands in Cornwall. It's an innovation centre with an old mine turned into a museum. They have a lovely modern ceremony room, beautiful grounds and a lovely free park for the children.

GuyMartinsSideburns Wed 16-Oct-13 20:27:33

We got married in Bath too smile Bath is beautiful

Glad makemineabacardi agrees-Cheltenham ought to havea nice registry office but it really doesn't!
