Top 6 Reasons to Have an Intimate Wedding Ceremony at Civic Hotel

Your ‘happily ever after’ awaits

Over the past year, Surrey’s event and wedding industry has faced many challenges. With all the uncertainty, rescheduling, and guest list shuffling, a new trend has emerged: intimate wedding ceremonies. Yes, you read that right. Couples are starting to focus on the most important part of a wedding… which is celebrating you and your partner’s love. We’ve highlighted a few reasons why Civic Hotel is your venue for intimate wedding ceremonies in Surrey.

Top 5 Reasons to have an intimate wedding ceremony at Civic Hotel

1. Choose your guest list stress-free

With an intimate ceremony, couples are excited about their big day without the added worry of the safety of their loved ones. Celebrate with up to ten people in person. Civic Hotel offers audiovisual capabilities so you can livestream your vows to your friends and family at home.

2. Save money

It is no surprise that the bigger the guest list, the more expensive the wedding. Intimate weddings are a cost-effective way to share your love without jeopardizing the special moments. Besides, with the money you save, maybe you can plan an extra fun honeymoon in the future 😉

3. Design your own personalized wedding

Your wedding is all about you, your dreams, and your love. That means you can keep the traditional rituals like a champagne toast and cake-cutting but skip the garter and bouquet toss. You decide.

4. Don’t wait to tie the knot

Remember how many weddings moved from 2020 to 2021…. and now those very weddings are moving to 2022 (ahhhh!). Time is precious and we want you to be able to tie the knot on your timeline.

5. Beautiful wedding venue and event spaces

We transformed one of our event spaces into an intimate wedding ceremony. You’ll see stunning décor provided by wedding specialists from A Day to Remember, like seat-covered chairs, a beautiful ceremony arch, and a bouquet that is already aisle ready. Want to customize your own? See our other event spaces and ballrooms on our website.

6. Professional event team 

Civic Hotel’s dedicated team of experts is here to help you every step of the way. Following guidance from local health authorities and the Marriott Cleanliness Council, we have enhanced our hotel protocols and will navigate all of the public health orders so you can focus on your big day. All the happy couple needs to do is show up with their officiant, photographer, and closest friends and family members – we’ll take care of the rest!
