1. Civil Ceremonies

Our Mayfield Room is fully licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships...

This means that you can enjoy your entire wedding day in picturesque, comfortable surroundings without the stress of moving from venue to venue.

To arrange your ceremony at The Norfolk Arms you will need to contact the Superintendant Registrar at:

The Registry Office
Town Hall
Pinstone Street
Sheffield
S1 2HH

Telephone: 0114 203 9420

You should do this as soon as soon as you have provisionally booked our Mayfield Room.
Without the presence of the registrar there can not be a marriage, so booking early can save the disappointment of losing your choosen date.

To secure your date with us we will need to see your booking receipt from the registrar.

10. What to do next

Whether you wish to simply ask a few questions or go ahead and book your big day, our wedding co-ordinators will be able to guide you through what can be a very nerve-racking (and exciting!) time.

Your first meeting will normally be an informal chat for you to get to know each other, swap ideas and advise us of any requirements that you may already have.

A meeting with our wedding co-ordinator

If you have a date in mind we will check the availability and provisionally hold it for up to two weeks, after which a deposit will be required to formally book the date.

With the basic details in place the fun can really start! Some weddings require months or even years of planning, while others fall into place in a matter of weeks.
Whatever your needs, our wedding co-ordinator will be on hand to help you create your dream wedding.

      We reserve the right to set a minimum number of guests to be charged at the wedding. Approximate numbers must be confirmed at the time of booking.
