Champagne and canapes in a colourful garden, a tailor made feast with your friends and family – just some of the unique features that have made our hotel on of Carlisle’s most popular wedding venues.

We have a variety of rooms that are perfect for any size of wedding celebrations, from a wedding breakfast for 20 to an evening party for 150, and all our rooms have been granted a civil (wedding) licence to host civil ceremonies by Cumbria County Council.

Civil Ceremonies

We have a variety of rooms, including our beautiful outdoor. Gazebo which are perfect for any size of wedding celebration and all have been granted a civil licence.

As soon as you have made the decision to have a civil ceremony at The Crown Hotel, you must contact the Registrars Office. It is important to do this as soon as possible in order to secure the date (there is a fee for the Registrar’s services, which they will advise you accordingly).

The Crown Hotel is permitted to be the venue for non religious civil ceremonies, and as such, any music, readings, words, poetry or performance which form any part of the ceremony, must be secular. Flowers for the pew ends and registration table arrangement are included in the facilities charge.
