Ceremonies

At Alcott we don’t have a civil ceremony licence, but ceremonies take place with a Wedding Celebrant and they are stunning. You can have your ceremony in the great outdoors opposite the picturesque lakes, in between trees, in front of your chosen structure or inside the structure. Some couples have hired a separate yurt for their ceremony and then used the space later on for kids’ cinema room or chill out area.

What is a Celebrant led Wedding Ceremony?

A Celebrant will craft, write, personalise and tailor your ceremony to reflect your style and personalities.

It gives you the freedom to have a ceremony that is more in line with what you want as a couple, not abide by expectations, and not be driven by the limitations of a legal structure and content.

You can include guests, incorporate faith, embrace symbolic ritual & gestures, set the tone and make your day memorable for all of the right reasons.

Is a Celebrant led wedding legally binding?

Offering an unofficial ceremony on site with our renowned celebrant, or the flexibility to choose your own celebrant, personalisation is key. Due to the UK’S legalities that civil ceremonies need to be under a permanent structure, Alcott is not licensed; a registrar’s office will fulfil the legal side of the marriage for a small fee. This opens the door to a whole world of opportunities. If you would like something more formal, situated just outside the beautiful village of Alvechurch, there are many options for a church/ civil ceremony, allowing you to celebrate the perfect day with your nearest and dearest.

Testimonial
Helen & Joe

Alcott Farm was the first and only venue we looked at before booking our big day! There are lots of amazing things about Lucy and this beautiful venue, but one of the best is that Alcott Weddings gives you a blank canvas to create your perfect day. Lucy is super organised and thinks of absolutely everything, which was a huge help in putting everything together. She has several fabulous trusted suppliers to choose from and plenty of contacts for anything you might want to add to your day. It was ideal to have a choice of suppliers that all came highly recommended, without being too restricted.

Lucy was there every step of the way to help us plan our day and it couldn’t have gone more perfectly. We’re so glad we chose Alcott Farm and we’d highly recommend it to anyone who wants a personalised wedding day in a stunning setting with spot-on suppliers who really know their stuff. Thanks so much Lucy and everyone in the Alcott Weddings team!

Going to start with the amazing venue; we had the most amazing day. Two years in the planning with the calmest, friendliest, and the most organised person in charge. We got to live out the crazy vision we had planned. Festivals all over the country cancelled. Not our Wedfest! With an amazing team we went ahead and lived our dream. Cutting, sucking and siphoning rain water with dad”s hose pipes, constant tipi checks, we had our dream day. With a surprise pizza delivery to our lodge to end our night.. Nothing is too much to ask even in a week of full bridezilla mode.

Throughout 2 days of severe weather warnings, we lived our dream and started married life, without a hitch. Complete calmness, professionalism and friendliness. The wind did not curtail our day and we loved every second of it. Guests have commented about how unique and perfect it was. We love love loved it.

Thank you Lucy and the team, we are forever indebted to you.
