Following the announcement by the Prime Minister all ceremonies are now suspended until people movement and social gathering restrictions are lifted. We appreciate how disappointing this we will be for our couples and we will do our very best to help you through this difficult time. Please can you email your request for changes to your booking to . If you could include your full name, address, date of birth, telephone number along with the date time and venue you have booked, we will then call you back.

Cockington Court is dealing with immediate weddings to the end of April, and rest assured, we will be in contact with you should your wedding day be affected after this date.

We are no longer available on telephone but you can email if you have a wedding in April. This date will be changed accordingly.


Please note: Important information from the registrars - Notice of marriage is only valid for the venue named on the notice.
