Wedding breakfast in the Concert Hall including a splendid wedding cake

Our building lends itself very well to hosting both your ceremony and reception. We have three rooms which can be used for either ceremonies or receptions, depending on the size of your event.

The banqueting capacity of each room is:

  • Waterhouse Chamber 20
  • Victoria Hall 90
  • Concert Hall 200

The room layout and table plan will be discussed with you in the runup to your day. Our team can assist with adding place names, favours and other items to the tables. If you wish to have a top table this can be sized to your specific requirements.

You will need to contact the Register Office at Yeomanry House (telephone 0118 937 5120) to arrange for the Registrars to be present. You can provisionally book their attendance 12 months prior to your wedding date. Remember that without the Registrars your ceremony cannot take place. You need to contact them direct to arrange an appointment and to book your date.

Call us on 0118 937 3400 or email.
