Further to the Prime Ministers announcement of 22 September which introduced further measures to suppress the COVID-19 virus.
These mean that from 28 September in England all weddings, civil partnership ceremonies and any associated receptions will be restricted to 15 people. It has been clarified that this maximum number includes all those attending, including the couple, witnesses and guests. However anyone working, for example officiants (registrars), photographers, security, staff employed by the venue, third-party suppliers or catering staff are not included.
The Government has announced that weddings and civil partnerships can take place from 4 July 2020. There are very tight restrictions on these and we are only allowed to conduct a very basic ceremony including just the legal words, plus exchange of rings (optional) and signing of the register. There cannot be any entrance/exit processions, readings, personal vows or other enhancements. In our rooms we have the following capacities to allow for social distancing:
- Midsomer Court, Beaconsfield and John Hampden Room, Aylesbury 10 people plus 2 registrars
- Disraeli Room, Beaconsfield (now weekends only) 4 people plus 2 registrars.
This figure includes couple, children/babies, photographers etc.
Please note that we are now fully booked in October so are unable to bring any bookings forward or make new bookings.
We are now taking new bookings from 1 November 2020 onwards and will be reviewing this as and when we are able to do so.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these times.
