Bespoke ceremonies

Our Ceremony Team will do their best to make you feel comfortable during your ceremony from the moment you step into the building until the second that you leave! 

You have chosen to have your Ceremony within Coventry and we know you will have a lot of questions and plans for your special day. At the Coventry Register Office, we are proud to have a Ceremony Team dedicated to make your Ceremony as perfect as we possibly can.

If you have your ceremony in the Black Prince Room, The Queen Isabella Room at Cheylesmore Manor House, or a  licensed venue in Coventry you have the choice of a Classic Ceremony or take the opportunity to create your own Bespoke Ceremony

Book an appointment with our experienced Ceremony Co-ordinator who will meet with you for an hour in our Ceremony Suites at Cheylesmore Manor House. The Ceremony Coordinator will talk you through your ceremony, answer any questions and personalise your ceremony with you; No two relationships are the same and no two weddings should be.  

We will do everything we can to make your special day run as smoothly as possible, from your first enquiry to the day itself.  Our aim is to make your day perfect, everything you have ever hoped & planned for.

If you choose our Bespoke enhanced service, you will have a choice of the options below & if you have your own ideas and additional requests, we will do our very best to accommodate 

This enhanced service will include:  

  • An hour’s meeting with our Ceremony Co-ordinator to discuss your requirements and ideas and create your special day
  • A step-by-step guide to what will happen throughout the ceremony.
  • If you are being escorted up the aisle you can choose to include your escort further by asking them to give you away as part of your ceremony (one or both of you)
  • Including ‘’Your Story’’ in your own words to describe the journey to your special day
  • A choice of exchanging of ring pledges

Our Ceremony Co-ordinator will look after your order from design to print for you and arrange for Order of Day and Confetti to be placed in your ceremony room in Cheylesmore Manor House or to be delivered to your Venue on the day. 
  • Up to three readings (Black Prince Room & Licenced Venue) one reading (Queen Isabella Room). Choose from our booklet or a verse or lyric which means something to you both. This gives you the opportunity to ask family or friends to be a part of your ceremony
