Civil and Marriage Ceremony Locations Lake District Broadoaks Luxury Country House Hotel

Ceremony & Wedding Meal Locations

Licensed Areas at Broadoaks

In England, each area where weddings are held must have its own license and for this reason only designated ‘Wedding’ locations can be used to hold the ceremony. All ceremonies at Broadoaks are performed by a registrar and this style of ceremony is often referred to as a civil ceremony.

Like religious ceremonies weddings performed in this way are very special the main difference is that these ceremonies do not and cannot involve any religious elements. If a religious ceremony is important to you then please refer to the local churches section as shown on our web site.

Here at Broadoaks we have the following areas available for your civil ceremony:

Cermony Areas


1. The Upper Lawn at Broadoaks (max capacity 100)

The upper lawn at Broadoaks has amazing views across to lake Windermere in the distance as well as the surrounding valleys. This fine green is our grounds man David’s pride and joy (although he does get a little distressed when helicopters land on it!)

2. Marquees on the lower lawn (max capacity 120)

If you are interested in having your wedding in a Marquee then we are able to offer this option on one of our lower greens.


Please note: Whilst a preference for an outdoor wedding can be made, we will always agree an alternative Plan B for the day just in case the weather is not as good as we all hoped.



1. The William Morris Music Room at Broadoaks (max capacity 40)

The music room at Broadoaks is a beautiful room that oozes charm and character, build onto the house in 1905 as a music room for old Dr Charles it boasts a vaulted ceiling and traditional oak panelled walls. For weddings the furniture can be moved about to create a mini aisle, the baby grand in the corner of the room can also be used by our local pianist to fill the room with music for a grand entrance.

Local Churches

For religious ceremonies there are several local churches where your ceremony could be arranged. Whilst you would still need to contact the local registrar to arrange the paperwork for your wedding, you would also need to speak to the church direct to arrange the wedding service for the day.

Couples wishing to hold their wedding at one of the local churches are likely to require transport from Broadoaks to the church. We have a range of useful contacts for this which can be found under the ‘plan your wedding’ section of the website.
