Ceremony Rooms

The Sandwell Suite and the Highfields Room have recently been refurbished and both rooms overlook our beautiful gardens and have the benefit of sash windows.  The Garden Room is our new ceremony suite overlooking the gardens and will be available for ceremonies from 1 May 2023. Photographs can be taken in the gardens both before and after your ceremony. 

We would be delighted to show you around our ceremony rooms so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you wish to arrange this.  The Garden Room will be available to view from 6 April 2023.

In the Sandwell Suite and Garden Room we offer additional services to include:

A live webcast of your ceremony: £49

A USB Copy of the webcast in presentation case: £53

Visual tributes with up to 25 photographs played on a loop:  £43

Visual tribute of up to 25 photographs which is professionally edited and set to music:  £74

We provide music in the Garden Room, Highfields Room and Sandwell Suite which is played through a sound system which adds to the overall ambience of the ceremony.

We want to ensure that all couples holding a ceremony at Highfields House have a wonderful event and we will work with you to ensure that your ceremony holds lasting memories of the day and is just as you wanted it to be.

The ceremony - pre-ceremony interview

We will ask the couple to arrive 15 minutes in advance of the ceremony time to complete the pre-ceremony interview.  Once this is completed all guests will be invited into the ceremony room and once seated will start your ceremony.

Your ceremony

The registrars will have discussed the ceremony format with you prior to the date of the ceremony.

If you have any questions about ceremonies, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to provide further information on what we can offer and discuss your requirements.

Giving notice

All couples getting married at the Register Office, and at all venues other than a Church of England church, must give Notice of Marriage.

Booking your ceremony

If you have a date in mind for your wedding or civil partnership, you can reserve the date up to two years in advance.  The cost for this is £65.00 and gives you peace of mind that the date is reserved for your ceremony.  (The fee to save the date is non-refundable and is an additional charge to the cost of room hire).

How to pay

For the Register Office ceremony room or for the Highfields Room, the hire fee is payable either at your notice appointment (if given at Sandwell Register Office) or the day after you give notice (if given at any other Register Office).  

For the Sandwell Suite, the room hire fee must be paid at three months before your ceremony.

Payments can be made by card or cheque. (Cash payments can also be taken if required but we would appreciate card payment where possible)

Cancellation fee

Please note, once fees have been paid in full, if you wish to cancel your ceremony without re-booking we will only refund 50% of the room hire cost.

If you cancel within three weeks of the ceremony date then no refund will be payable.

If you need to change the date of your wedding once it is booked, there will be a £40 charge.

Other venues

You can also get married at other venues in Sandwell, including hotels and West Bromwich Albion Football Club.
