Your first step to holding a civil wedding is to give notice of intention to marry at your local Register Office. If Erasmus Darwin House is not in the district where you live, you will have to arrange the wedding dates with the Lichfield Register Office. There will be a separate charge for the Registrar.

A civil ceremony will usually last no more than 20 minutes, therefore rooms at Erasmus Darwin House are booked on a 3 hourly basis. This allows time for the arrival of your guests, the service, drinks and photography. Guests are asked to arrive no more than 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony.


The whole of Erasmus Darwin House is accessible to wheelchair users. Please let us know if you are expecting wheelchair users so that we can have staff on hand to assist if necessary.
