In Winchester Guildhall

We’re totally in love with the beautiful spaces we have here at the Guildhall and we’re very proud to be able to offer the newly-weds of Hampshire (and beyond) a beautiful place to take their vows. In fact, we’ve decided to expand our nuptial offering, based on feedback we’ve received from our brilliant couples.

            We love how artistic, diverse and creative our city is – we want to give our couples the opportunity to express their own unique flair, in their own special way.

At twilight, we wed…


Ever looked across the beautiful Winchester city-scape at sunset? We have – and let us assure you, it’s beautiful. So beautiful that we’re offering couples our stunning spaces in the evening. For ceremonies up until 7pm, the Guildhall is the perfect, cost-effective place to capture those golden hour and sunset photos. You could even step into the fairy-tale Abbey Gardens for that extra special glow. If you’re not looking to spend on a full day affair, we can provide the magic for less.

            This is your wedding, your rules! For fancy feet and dancing shoes, a twilight ceremony makes the most of the evening. It’s easy to organise and can take place on a day of your choosing. Perhaps you’d like to skip on the traditional sit down wedding-breakfast and get straight into the party? Maybe you’d prefer a street-food, festival vibe? Perhaps you’re just looking for a relaxed and simple affair that doesn’t cost the earth?
