You will then be issued with an Approval Holder’s letter, which should be taken to the Birmingham Register office in order to make a booking for Registrar staff to attend.

Outdoor Ceremonies

For Civil Ceremonies of up to 180 guests*

The Sunken Garden at Moor Hall is a woodland, fairy tale setting for your outdoor civil ceremony. The path to the Sunken Garden is lined with verbena and standard roses throughout the summer; and at the entrance stands a magnolia tree, which in springtime is in full bloom. Seasonal shrubbery borders and walls, built using stones from old local buildings, surround the Sunken Garden, along with woodlands with yew and hazel trees, making it a striking setting.

The wedding party will walk the woodland pathway around the back of the Sunken Garden to make a grand entrance at the top of the double staircase, which sits above a beautiful stone grotto.

The Sunken Garden can seat up to 180 guests for the marriage or civil partnership ceremony, and the couple will exchange vows under the classical stone archway which hides two grottos.

You can choose to have an outdoor wedding when you book your civil ceremony or partnership at Moor Hall or add it on at anytime on the run up to your big day. We always have the outdoor furniture onsite, ready to setup for your ceremony. On the morning of your wedding day, it will depend on the weather on the day if the ceremony will be performed outside, and the final decision is with the Registrar.

Room Hire Charge:

£800 in 2021 | £900 in 2022 | £1,000 in 2023

We understand that it may be stressful not knowing if the weather will be fine for your outdoor wedding at Moor Hall. However, we will have the stunning Charter Suite prepared for an indoor ceremony if the weather doesn’t hold.
