Wedding Ceremony Venue:The Guildhalladd to shortlist

Wedding Ceremony Venue

The Guildhall

The Guildhall


Guildhall Cottage,
Church Street,
Lyme Regis,


The main body of the building, including the Mayor’s Parlour, was built in 1887 on the site of the town’s lock-up.

With stunning views across the sea towards Charmouth and West Bay merely a few feet outside the Guildhall, some may argue it to be the perfect backdrop for any wedding photography. We hope that you choose to share your special day with us and we look forward to welcoming you to Lyme Regis. Please note that hire of the Guildhall is separate from any legal arrangements or charges made by the Registrars.

How to book your civil marriage or partnership ceremony

Please ensure that the registrars from Dorset County Council are available for your chosen date.
Please complete the Guildhall booking form and return to us with a deposit of 10% of the cost of hiring the Guildhall. Once we have received your form, we will confirm your booking and an invoice for the final amount will be forwarded to you one month before your ceremony.

Your civil marriage or partnership is a very important day and we would like to help in any way we can to make the day special and to run smoothly. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do.

Music and readings

You are welcome to add music or readings to your ceremony. Both must be of a nonreligious nature and approved before the ceremony day. Readings are arranged with the registrars and music with Lyme Regis Town Council. Recorded music must be on CD and sent to us at least one week before the ceremony so that we can check it with our sound system.


The full hire fee will be payable unless the office is notified at least 48 hours before the date of the ceremony.
