Marriage now possible in Elizabeth Castle

On the 1st of May this year the marriage law in Jersey changed. Previously civil marriage ceremonies were only held at the offices of the Superintendent Registrar. The change to the law allows couples to hold a civil ceremony in any registered venue.
The Jersey Heritage Trust was able to assign a particular room at our sites to hold civil ceremonies. Marriages are now possible for both residents and non-residents.

The Jersey Heritage Trust has registered the following sites:

Elizabeth Castle - the Governors' House
Hamptonne - a choice of a possible three rooms
Jersey Museum - the Victorian Drawing room at No. 9 Pier Road.

At all of these sites it is also possible to hold the wedding reception.

The Governor's House is the largest of the rooms to be registered and will accommodate approximately 60 guests. The rooms at Hamptonne are smaller; the largest is able to accommodate approximately 25 guests. The Victorian Drawing room is able to hold 12-15 guests.

We are now taking bookings for wedding ceremonies.

For further information about holding wedding ceremonies and/or receptions at Heritage Sites, please contact Anna Stevens marketing@jerseyheritagetrust.org
