Weddings and civil ceremonies

Getting married at the Windsor Guildhall

Wedding at Guildhall

The Windsor Guildhall provides a truly unique setting in the heart of Windsor for your special day. 

We are a popular choice for those planning smaller, intimate ‘micro weddings’ of 15 guests or less but we can seat up to 100 guests in our Council Chamber for ceremonies, drinks receptions and sit-down meals.

The ceremony can be personalized with your own special vows, readings, poetry and music. You are also welcome to dress the room with your choice of flowers. 

Our central location means that you can opt to combine a Guildhall ceremony with other local hotels, restaurants or even river cruises. 

Weddings and civil partnerships can take place all year-round Monday-Saturday between 11am-3.30pm. Sunday and Bank Holiday weddings are available on request. 

Getting married in 2022

Our flexible approach to weddings means that we have continued to host many ceremonies throughout the pandemic, despite the coronavirus restrictions. 

We are currently taking bookings for 2022 and beyond. We host weddings 12 months of the year, and our events team will work with you to help you create a day to remember.

There are discounts available on Guildhall room hire for midweek ceremonies and for Royal Borough residents with a valid Advantage Card
