Civil Ceremonies

At The Grand Hotel we have 3 licensed wedding venues, from the elegant Princes Room for up to 120 guests to the gorgeous Arundel Room, or the wood panelled Dukes Room for smaller celebrations.

We have our excellent and popular wedding or civil partnership packages which include the Imperial Reception, our Vintage Reception and the Prestige Cuvee Reception, available. However, we also appreciate you may want to make your wedding or civil partnership personal to your party, which is why we have come up with a few ideas of our own below.
