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! 

If you have chosen to get married or have a non statutory ceremony within Coventry we appreciate that you will have a lot of questions about your special day.

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 and everything you have ever hoped for.

By booking an appointment with our Ceremony Co-ordinator you can have your own bespoke ceremony that is unique to you as a couple, no two relationships are the same so no two weddings should be. Whilst choosing to have a bespoke ceremony with us you have the chance to make it your own whilst still having a legal marriage.


If you have your ceremony in the Black Prince Room or licensed venue in Coventry you will have the choice of a classic ceremony or the opportunity to create a bespoke ceremony and enhance it with other options. If you choose the bespoke ceremony, we would like to offer you a personal service with our ceremony co-ordinator.  

Choosing a bespoke ceremony ensures you will receive the perfect ceremony tailored to you both. 

This enhanced service will include where applicable; 

  • A meeting with the ceremony co-ordinator to discuss your requirements for your special day
  • The choice of having someone give you away as part of your ceremony (one or both of you)
  • Including your story in your words to describe the journey to your special day
  • A choice of alternative exchanging of ring pledges
  • A choice of alternative promises to make to each other
  • The choice to write and include your own personally written ring pledge and promise 
  • The opportunity to receive a copy of your prepared script to check and keep as a keepsake of your special day
  • Help to complete your questionnaire and order any of our bespoke ceremony stationery including order of the day, reading cards, confetti etc.
  • A step by step guide to what will happen throughout the ceremony
  • Select music of your choice allowing you to choose songs or music that is special to you both
  • Include up to three readings from our booklet or of your own choice giving you the opportunity to ask family or friends to be a part of your ceremony
  • The opportunity to include a sand ceremony
  • The opportunity to include a unity candle ceremony
  • The opportunity to include a handfasting
  • A personal service from the ceremony co-ordinator who will be able to put you at ease and answer any questions you may have so you can relax and enjoy your special day!

The cost of the appointment will be £50 which will be payable at the time of booking and will be non-refundable.  

If you would like to take advantage of this bespoke service, book a convenient appointment with the ceremony co-coordinator including Saturdays (subject to availability). Please note your appointment cannot be made more than six months before and no later than 28 days prior to your ceremony.

If you would prefer a classic ceremony please complete and return your questionnaire to the ceremony co-ordinator at Coventry Register Office, Cheylesmore Manor House, Manor House Drive, Coventry, CV1 2ND.
