The Mayoral Room

The Mayoral Room

The Mayoral Room is a popular choice because of its grand, yet intimate, atmosphere.

It has beautiful paintings of some former Bristol mayors such as Richard Lane and John Noble and an ornate fireplace.

Capacity and social distancing measures

Because of coronavirus (COVID-19), we'll only allow a maximum of 20 guests plus the couple in the room for the ceremony.

Make sure that:

  • your guests sit in accordance to seating plan which is in line with government social distancing guidelines
  • you only move around the building in accordance with signage and floor markings
  • you arrive 20 minutes before scheduled ceremony time as you'll have your ceremony interview together

Your guests  must remain outside the register office until they're invited into the ceremony room.

Photographs will be permitted after the ceremony inside the ceremony room and outside the Register Office. No photographs permitted elsewhere in the Register Office.

You can find more details on how to plan for the ceremony and what rules you should follow on the COVID-19: Guidance for small marriages and civil partnerships (GOV.UK).
