Our Cotton Room, filled with natural light, is fully licensed for civil ceremonies and looks stunning whatever your chosen theme. Accommodating up to 150 guests for your civil ceremony, with the option of reclaimed cinema seats, traditional chivari’s or modern ghost chairs, the choice is yours for all of your guests.
