Wedding ceremonies can be flexible, personal and unique. Baddow Park perform all types of wedding ceremony.

If you’re planning to marry, the starting point of most weddings is for you to decide how you both want to get married. Wouldn’t it be great to start your married life with a wedding ceremony that really means something? To have the opportunity to tell your friends and family what your relationship means and why you are choosing to get married? Many of us are looking for a wedding that is personal, flexible and unique. Here we write about some of the types of wedding ceremony available.

Non Religious Civil Wedding Ceremonies

A civil wedding ceremony is simply a non-religious, legal marriage. It’s presided over by a legal official instead of a religious one. A civil ceremony allows couples to bring words, poems and music into the service (not religion). There are many wonderful and creative ways to make a civil wedding ceremony unique and very meaningful.

Inter-faith Wedding Ceremony

An Interfaith marriage closes the gap between different faiths and cultures and is a day for harmony. Keeping your interfaith wedding ceremony secular will allow the focus to be on you (rather than religion) as you say your vows. You can then bring aspects of your religious traditions in your reception. This approach can alleviate a lot of stress.

Same Sex Wedding Ceremony

Same-sex couples were legally entitled to marry in the UK from March 2014. The process is exactly the same as for heterosexual couples. You are granted the same rights as every single married couple in England & Wales (and now Scotland!). Since the change in law many couples have decided to convert their civil partnership into a marriage. The conversion is a very simple process involving one meeting with a superintendent registrar. Same sex wedding ceremonies have two venue options, either the register office or an approved venue of your choice.

Jewish Ceremonies

The Jewish wedding ceremony is a simple and beautiful service. It can be adapted or enjoyed in its original format. This allows you many ways to make the service your own and express your love for each other. A Jewish wedding ceremony can be performed at any time of day but cannot take place on The Sabbath (which is a Saturday)

Asian Wedding Ceremony

An Asian wedding ceremony can usually last for around three hours. They include a vast amount of rituals and special traditions. Symbolising the sacred union of the bride and groom, this ceremony also celebrates the coming together of two families. The families are heavily involved throughout the wedding.  They play key roles in many of the ceremonies and traditions. An Asian wedding ceremony is an extravagant and important affair.

Wedding Blessing

A wedding blessing is a non-legally binding ceremony. You can add a spiritual or personal aspect to symbolise your union. These are a few of the different types of wedding ceremony options you can choose from. Once you have decided on the type of ceremony, you can then begin to put your stamp on it.  Whether you write your own wedding vows or hold a special ritual, the team at Baddow Park House will work with you to ensure that your wedding ceremony is just as you envisaged it at our Country house wedding venue.
