Weddings and civil partnerships at the Bandstand
Poor weather conditions
The Bandstand is an outdoor venue and as such ceremonies can be affected by poor weather.
Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate you and your wedding party in your chosen seating preferences, there will be occasions when – due to weather conditions – the customary “theatre-style” arrangement of chairs will not be possible. We will then revert to a “circle-fashion” arrangement with the registrars table in the middle. This is to ensure the essential protection of the marriage register and other legal documents.
In very poor weather conditions, the café option will be used in line with Bandstand and registrars terms and conditions. Our aim is to ensure you all have a perfect day whilst adhering to the statutory restrictions of your legal ceremony. This decision will be made by the Seafronts Facilities Assistant on the day of the wedding. The Seafronts Facilities Assistant will inform you if the wedding is to be moved into the cafe prior to it taking place.
