Frome Town Hall Wedding August 2020

We are delighted to announce the return of weddings at Frome Town Hall.  Civil ceremonies are returning to the historic building following a 46 year break!

Weddings and civil ceremonies

Working with Somerset Registration Services, the Town Hall has been granted a wedding licence and can now be used as a registry office.

Marriages and civil partnerships are available and can be designed to suit individual requirements to ensure the day will be unique as those using the space. These ceremonies are non-religious in nature and couples are able to personalise the special occasion by choosing music and creating their own bespoke vows.

Your ceremony

There are two options to choose from depending on your ceremony requirements. Due to Covid restrictions ceremonies may look a little different and will be conducted in line with the latest social distancing requirements. You can read more about the steps we’re taking to make sure you will feel comfortable and confident on your special day and how we will look after you and your guests in our Staying Safe – Weddings at Frome Town Hall guide.

  • For smaller, more intimate weddings, there is the Emma Sheppard Room which can hold up to ten guests currently.
  • There is also the elegant Council Chamber which can currently seat up to 15 guests so more family and friends can enjoy your big day should you need it.

Wedding table set upExtras

Each couple has an hour for their ceremony and to take photographs in the beautiful and historic venue.

As the Town Hall also has its own premises licence if desired (and once Covid restrictions allow), couples and their guests can enjoy a glass of celebratory fizz – just let us know.

Should you book the final ceremony of the day, you will also be able to hire the Council Chamber if you wish your reception to be held at the venue.

Baby naming ceremonies

The Town Hall can also be used to celebrate and welcome your child into their family with a baby naming ceremony. It’s a non-religious alternative to a christening ceremony, and a great opportunity for friends and family to come together and celebrate the new addition to a family – new babies, extended families with step-children, adopted families, fostered children. The ceremony can be tailored to your needs and can include music and readings.
