Couples planning to tie the knot can find out about getting married or registering a civil partnership at Priory Hall at an open day next month.
Dudley Registrars are holding the wedding show on Saturday 14 March, which will include the chance to take a look around the Grade-II listed hall and enjoy a bridal fashion show.
Last year more than 500 people attended the event, which provides the perfect chance to view the grade II-listed venue and its surroundings in Priory Park. The park features the old Priory ruins and is overlooked by Dudley Castle.
Visitors can attend a demonstration ‘sand ceremony’, where the happy couple pour different coloured sand into a frame to create a keepsake to symbolise the merging of two individuals into a blended pair. Children of the couple can also take part in the ritual, showing the coming together of families.
There will also be demonstration weddings and exhibitors such as flower, dress, photography and ceremony car providers.
This year’s Dudley event will also include a free prize draw, worth £400 for anyone attending the event to win a Priory Suite wedding at Priory Hall. Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for procurement, transformation and commercialisation, said:
"We are holding one of our popular wedding open day events at Priory Hall, which give couples the ideal chance to look around this perfect venue and get inspiration for their own big day.
"Couples can also take part in our wedding free prize draw to be in with the chance to win their own dream wedding."
The open day will run from 10am to 3pm. For more information call 01384 815373.
