Classic Ceremony

Our Classic ceremony, is a legal civil wedding, held in any of our ceremony rooms. You may invite guest numbers up to the capacity of your chosen ceremony room. The ceremony is suitable for those wanting a more traditional and sophisticated ceremony.

The ceremony is a little longer than our Simple Ceremony. However, it remains relatively effortless for you with little forward preparation required from you. We will just ask you to choose your legal vows and declarations. We take care of all of the other arrangements conducting an elegant ceremony for you.

The Classic Ceremony includes being escorted into the room and presented, a reading by your celebrant, exchange of legal vows and declarations, the presentation and exchange of rings and ring vows, the signing of the legal schedule with photo opportunities followed by a traditional Cornish reading.

The ceremony is accompanied by a selection of graceful music supplied by your ceremony registrars on your entrance to, and departure from your ceremony, as well as during the signing of your schedule.

You will choose a minimum of two of your special guests to act as your legal witnesses for the signing of the schedule, although you may include up to six witnesses if you prefer.

A Classic Ceremony can be held at any of our nine ceremony rooms located across Cornwall, each with an individual style: from traditional to contemporary.
