A civil ceremony is a legally binding marriage ceremony with no religious elements. Many couples opt for a civil ceremony as it allows them to really personalise their day with their own choice of music, readings and even vows.
The Granary is licensed for civil ceremonies in both the Fawsley Suite (seating up to 80) and the Barn (seating up to 200).
Ceremonies are booked and performed by a certified registrar and it is the responsibility of the couple to arrange this as soon as you have booked a provisional date with us in order to secure your desired ceremony date and time. Bookings are taken up to 2 years in advance and can be made online at:
You can also contact Northamptonshire Registration Services on 0300 126 1000. Please note there is a separate fee payable to the Registration Service.
For further information about civil ceremonies the Northamptonshire Registration Services FAQ page is very helpful.
