Weddings and Ceremonies 

The Registration Service is committed to ensuring we move to a position where we can safely increase guest numbers again as we know how important it is for couples marrying with us.  Since the previous update,  the service has worked hard to carry out a thorough review, ensuring all  health & safety considerations are taking into account as Havering Council still has a duty to keep staff and visitors safe.   We have also taken into account the change in risk as the current Covid19 infection rate is declining .  For that reason, the Registration Service is pleased to be able to increase its capacity at weddings & ceremonies from Friday 27 August 2021.  

The new capacity numbers are as follows: 



East & West Room


Hall & Orangery


All numbers above include, couple, bridal party, witnesses & guests.

* Workers are not included i.e. 2 Registrars & 1 Photographer

If you are booked in the East / West Room there may be an opportunity for you to upgrade to the hall if it is available, there is an additional cost to upgrade. If you would like to enquire about upgrading please call the bookings team on 01708 433155.

We can assure you that we will continue to monitor and review these guidelines on a regular basis throughout this pandemic, and should any changes take place and we are able to raise the numbers of guests attending a ceremony or function, we will of course make direct contact with you and update this page accordingly. At this stage we cannot guarantee this will happen before your event takes place. Until then, you should assume that the numbers permitted to attend your booking is as above.

Testing is an additional tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19
