Outdoor ceremonies at approved premises

Some of our venues in Cheshire West and Chester offer the option of an outdoor ceremony. We have developed a comprehensive guide outlining the legal requirements so that you can tailor your ceremony to your personal preferences.

If you are planning on having an outdoor ceremony, please check with the venue where this will take place.
