Intimate Jury Room Wedding
The Jury Room was the perfect venue for us, with just 16 participants and guests. The Oak panelled walls adorned with the portraits of past City dignitaries created a historic feeling to the proceedings, while the ceremony was relaxed and intimate. The booking procedure was easy and the staff were friendly and helpful, so we can recommend the Guildhall for your Civil Ceremony.Sent on 22/06/2018
