Any parent or legal guardian of the child is welcome to arrange one of these ceremonies. They can be held in the historic Cheylesmore Manor House building or any other venue that has a licence to perform marriages.

If you are interested in arranging one of these ceremonies and would like to book a ceremony coordinator appointment with our Ceremony Coordinator then please complete the online contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
