Ceremony guidance

Tournerbury is licensed to hold civil ceremonies.   We have 3 locations on site where licensed ceremonies may take place.  Our beautiful log cabin is licensed and is complemented by the "Deck of Love" which is able to seat up 250 guests to watch your ceremony under the cover of a fully weatherproof stretch tent.  The deck is open at the sides so that you can have that 'outside' feel to your ceremony surrounded by the woodland area with views to the sea through the trees.  Alternatively you can hold your ceremony in our Victorian gazebo with guests seated on the lawns to watch.  Finally, for a really intimate settting you can even hold your ceremony inside Woods Cottage. Please contact the local Registrars team at the Hampshire Registration Service on 0845 6035637 to discuss booking Registrars for your ceremony at Tournerbury.

We are also happy for you to create your own personal ceremony or maybe incorporate a humanist type ceremony into your special day.  There are various location options for these types of ceremony including all of the above as well as a beautiful spot directly overlooking Chichester Harbour with direct water access.

Church ceremonies
There are a number of churches located on Hayling Island and all are within easy reach of Tournerbury.  Please contact the churches directly to find out if you are able to marry there.
