Registrar  & Clergy

It is the responsibility of the couple to seek the services of the Registrar and or Clergy for your special day at Hengrave Hall. Please do speak to a member of the events team if you need any clarification on the booking of these or any advice.

Bury St Edmunds Registry Office

You need to book a Registrar to officiate all Civil Ceremonies at Hengrave Hall (outside ceremony, Banqueting Hall, Dining Room & Library are all registered). If you are wishing to marry within the Church of St John Lateran, you will require a Register in addition to the clergy (a residency requirement will be needed).
