At Poundon House, you can have a Civil Ceremony followed by a Blessing. The Civil Ceremony is conducted within the Dining Room, Yellow Room or Reception Marquee, and we can seat up to 250 guests for a Civil Ceremony using the Terrace for additional seating. This makes a fantastic Outdoor Ceremony. (Outdoor civil ceremonies can only be held from May till the end of September due to rules from the registrars)
The Terrace can also be used for Asian Blessings, and can easily hold a Mandap, for example. It’s great to be able to hold both your Ceremonies at the same venue.
If you are interested in holding a Civil Ceremony and Blessing at the house, please make sure that the Civil Ceremony is conducted before any other Blessings, and that you discuss your plans for your day to the Registrars. They are there to help you and will do everything they can to make sure that you have the best day possible. However, the Civil Ceremony is a legal ceremony and there are conditions that have to be adhered to.
Please also note that with the licensed rooms for ceremonies the maximum capacity for the ceremony has to include the two registrars and the responsible person from the venue. So the dining rooms capacity is 80, which allows for 77 guests inc. yourselves. For the yellow room the capacity is 50, allowing 47 guests including yourselves. If you need any further information or help please speak to us for guidance.
Over the years we have held many Asian Weddings and celebrations here at Poundon House, and we feel we are the ideal venue for more. We have experience of holding Sikh weddings, Hindu Weddings, Nikah’s, Walima’s, mixed faith marriages and more.
