Beaconsfield Old Town Registration Office - Wedding Venue
Our office set in the beautiful and character-filled Old Town area of Beaconsfield and is in a conservation area, with a green across the road. Originally built as a police station in 1870, it retains many interesting features including four prison cells. Outside the courtyard is planted and there is an arbour where photographs can be taken. More recently, the building has been used as a film set but now provides an attractive backdrop for your special day.
We have two attractive ceremony rooms for you to choose from, The Disraeli Room and Midsomer Court which can hold a maximum of 25 and 60 people respectively. Please note these numbers include the couple and the two Registrars and cannot be exceeded due to fire regulations. Full details are given below and you are welcome to come and have a look at each room on one of our Open Days. There is no need to book in advance.
Maximum number: 25
Days available: All week, including weekends and Bank Holidays
The Disraeli room has undergone extensive refurbishment and the original features have been exposed. It has a high vaulted ceiling which is wood panelled with intricate carving. The old and the new have been brought together to create an intimate feel and ambience (flowers and tablecloth for decoration only).
The Disraeli room is on the ground floor and is wheelchair accessible.
Maximum number: 60 (this includes some standing)
Days available: Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays
A former magistrates' court and film set, the accommodation has been decorated to create a modern, bright and airy feel.
The accommodation is all ground floor level and has good access and a large comfortable waiting area. It is wheelchair accessible, is fitted with a hearing loop, and offers free WiFi access.
More information can be found in our brochure Celebrate in Buckinghamshire.
