Please note: Due to current pandemic restrictions and the latest Government Roadmap Lockdown Rollout and the guidance for wedding ceremonies and civil partnership these may be subject to further extensions and changes, therefore the number of guests allowed may be affected.  Please see below the latest Government Roadmap Rollout Guidance for ceremonies 2021:

From 17th May - 30 guests can attend, including the bridal couple and guests (including children and babies) *

* Please note that the Shire Hall is currently only allowing 11 guests, plus the 2 Registrars, the bridal couple and our Wedding Officer, so 15 people in total, this is to enable us to safely distance guests with the space available in the Chamber Room and therefore only half of the guests as stated in the Government Roadmap Rollout. 

From 21st June - Ceremonies to resume to normal with the Shire Hall capacity of 64 guests plus the bridal couple, two Registrars and Woodbridge Town Council Wedding Officer a total of 69.

We have a cleaning process and risk assessment in place for every wedding that takes place which ensures we adhere to latest Government guidelines.
