About Us

We are proud to be a part of over 3000 civil ceremonies in Somerset and North Somerset every year, joining together happy couples from the South West and beyond.

Welcome to Somerset Weddings

Welcome to Somerset Weddings – the dedicated wedding home of Somerset Registration Service, part of Somerset County Council. We officiate at civil ceremonies in our own offices and at approved venues across Somerset and North Somerset. We are here to guide you through the legal process of getting married or forming a civil partnership. We also provide a range of other services such as vow renewal ceremonies, naming ceremonies, citizenship ceremonies, replacement certificates and registration of births and deaths. Visit the main Somerset County Council site for more details.

We offer simple ceremonies for couples with two witnesses at 6 district offices. We also host larger weddings in our Taunton, Yeovil and Weston super Mare venues, and at over 110 licensed premises across the county. Click here to view ceremony charges at all our locations.

The Old Municipal Buildings, Taunton

Our stunning wedding venue is right in the historic heart of Taunton. The Grade II listed building dates from 1522 and is bounded by Castle Green and Taunton Castle to the rear, making it a gorgeous location for wedding photographs. The Tudor Hall is a magnificent room holding up to 100 people. The Vivary Room is equally grand but holds a more intimate 40 guests. It’s located on the first floor, and is accessible via our beautiful oak staircase or a lift. We are surrounded by an array of restaurants and pubs that make perfect reception venues for your post-ceremony celebrations. The Tudor Hall is available from Monday to Saturday, while the Vivary is used for ceremonies on Fridays and Saturdays.

Abbey Manor, Yeovil

This Grade 1 listed 15th Century manor house is the ideal venue for South Somerset weddings. A hidden gem near central Yeovil, it is the perfect blend of historic elegance and urban location. Beautiful stone walls and period features add an element of medieval romance, making your day even more magical. Two different rooms are available on selected Saturdays through the year. Ceremonies are held in a Register Office-style format, meaning couples book an hour long slot. The Plucknett suite is located upstairs so is unsuitable for guests with impaired mobility. Please speak to the team to discuss your needs.

The Town Hall, Weston Super Mare

With magnificent Victorian architecture, and situated a stone’s throw from the seafront, The Town Hall is a grand venue that’s perfect for smaller wedding parties. The Old Council Chamber, full of charming period features, seats up to 60. The Hutton Suite has a modern feel and holds up to 40 people.

Frome Town Hall

The historic Town Hall in Frome is available on selected Saturdays through the year. A fantastic venue for registration office style ceremonies in Mendip, and close to Bath and Wiltshire, we’re delighted to be able to host ceremonies in this beautiful building. The Council Chamber can hold parties of up to 100, while the Emma Sheppard Meeting Room is more intimate and can host ceremonies for up to 30. The final booking of the day can even opt to hire the venue for a celebrations in to the evening. Do check the Frome Town Hall website for available dates, or to discuss evening venue hire.
