Information For Exeter Historic Guildhall

The guildhall is such a unique place to hold your Ceremony, with stained glass windows, chandeliers and lots of other amazing features, it really gives the wow factor.

Over 800 years of history …

The Guildhall is situated in the heart of Exeter, and has become an unmistakable piece of Exeter’s history. Having received royalty and dignitaries, your wedding can now be added to the list!

With rooms filled with Exeter’s storied past, the Guildhall’s grandeur and elegance make the ideal setting for weddings and civil partnerships. As you walk through the large oak doors and into the lavish Great Hall, with its majestic brass chandelier and intricate panelling, your ceremony will have an unbridled air of romance.

The Great Hall is ideal for large bridal parties, and can accommodate up to 75 guests to see you say ‘I do’, where Lord Mayors have been elected; Members of Parliament have been chosen and Honorary Aldermen were appointed. However, if you are in search of a more intimate affair, why not walk down the aisle of the Jury Room. Able to accommodate up to 35 guests, it is the perfect marriage of intimacy and opulence, still giving a regal ambience while allowing you to be surrounded by only your very nearest and dearest.

What’s more, once you’ve exchanged vows, the Guildhall has countless breath-taking backdrops for your wedding photos. Truly the ideal location for you to host your wedding ceremony. From tying the knot to renewing your vows you have come to the right venue. So why not add your special day to the record books.

Intimate Jury Room Wedding
The Jury Room was the perfect venue for us, with just 16 participants and guests. The Oak panelled walls adorned with the portraits of past City dignitaries created a historic feeling to the proceedings, while the ceremony was relaxed and intimate. The booking procedure was easy and the staff were friendly and helpful, so we can recommend the Guildhall for your Civil Ceremony.

We had a wonderful wedding at the Guildhall back in 2015. Can't believe it was two years ago! The staff were really nice and very accommodating. The tour was enjoyed very much by all the guests. A very special place and a venue I would recommend. Thank you to all at the Guildhall for helping make our day very special!
