What is a 
Twilight Wedding?

No, it’s not a wedding filled with vampires and teenage romance. With civil ceremonies available until as late as 6pm, seven days a week, did you know you can book a wedding with an alluring twist?

A twilight wedding under the candlelit gaze of your family and friends is perfect for couples wanting to steer away from traditional wedding formalities.

Warm winter evenings & cool summer nights

Starting at sunset, a twilight wedding is popular during the Autumn and Winter months but is also a good option if you want to avoid the peak heat of the days in Summer.

Relaxed, romantic and magical, it allows couples to get creative with lighting and enjoy a more intimate ceremony before dancing the night away at your reception.
