You can personalise your ceremony by writing your own vows, exchanging rings, add readings, you can even include your beloved pet on your big day, the list is endless.
Just one of the beautiful aisles you could be walking down…
Our approved venues have beautiful settings for outdoor ceremonies across the Borough.

The choice of a wedding venue is very personal and each venue has something different to offer. When this is combined with a Stockton-on-Tees ceremony it can provide a wonderful experience.

Once you have found the perfect place to hold your wedding ceremony and made tentative arrangements with the venue, contact our Ceremonies Team on 01642 527720 or email to ensure we have registrar availability on your preferred date and time.

We will invite you to a discussion appointment with a registrar who will offer guidance and suggestions before the day of your ceremony. The only proviso we have to make is that there is no religious meaning to your readings or music.
