Rye Town Council


Since 1998, Rye Town Hall has been an approved venue for weddings – and is now able to offer civil partnership, commitment, renewal of marriage vows and baby naming ceremonies.

The elegant Council Chamber – formerly used also as a courtroom – provides a unique and historic setting for such an important day. Where else would the Town Crier be on hand to welcome guests and ‘cry’ the union from the steps of the Town Hall?

The charge for the use of both the venue and Town Crier for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies is Mon-Fri - £325; Sat - £350; Sun/Public Holiday - £375. However, there is a separate fee payable to the Registrars (t 01424 726530). Please remember that you must book your ceremony with both the Registry Office and the Town Hall!
