Civil Ceremonies & Partnerships

We would be delighted to host your intimate civil wedding ceremony in Westport. From 100 - 300 guests we are the perfect setting for your wedding day, civil ceremony and reception.  With a wealth of experience, our wedding team will create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for you & your guests. 
  • Our wedding venue is fully registered to provide the most stunning facilities for your Civil Ceremony or Civil Partnership in Westport.  The use of the Lakeview Room for Civil Ceremonies, Partnerships and Blessings is available for hire to create this truly memorable day.
  • On your wedding day, you will walk down the aisle while overlooking our 7 acres of woodlands and Westport House.  With your family and friends around you, this is the perfect, romantic setting to capture those memories by the lakeside.


In order to hold a civil ceremony at our wedding venue you are required to:

  • Contact the local Registrar regarding available dates and intended arrangements.
  • Contact the hotel to check availability in conjunction with the Registrar.
  • Once approval has been granted you can proceed with the arrangements for the ceremony.



Lakeview Room

Our Lakeview Room can cater for 60- 200 guests for an intimate civil ceremony or partnership. The room offers an abundance of natural daylight from our full length windows overlooking our beautiful landscaped woodland. We dress the room with floral arrangements and traditional red carpet at the entrance to the room, creating a warm and elegant ambience for your civil ceremony.

Outdoor Ceremonies

With our 7 acres of landscaped gardens we have the perfect outdoor location for your special day.  As of July 14th 2014 the Civil Marriage Bill now states that civil ceremonies can take place outside.  Whether it's a marquee or something more intimate on our decking overlooking Westport House, we have exceptional grounds to suit all your needs.

Mulberry Suite

After your service guests will be invited downstairs to our Mulberry Suite for the reception.  This stunning suite, with its own private entrance, again offers beautiful natural light and patio doors which lead out to a private area with a stunning gazebo feature.
