Ceremonies in gazebos
Bexley have gained a reputation as two of the premier
places in the country to celebrate your special day.
Many of the venues licensed by the council have gazebos or other
permanent garden structures where Kentish ceremonies can be
celebrated. On a summer's afternoon these provide a wonderful
Any gazebo or garden structure must be seemly and dignified and
- Be permanent and immovable.
- Have a brick, stone or concrete base and a roof supported by
brick, stone, concrete or wood pillars or walls (may have trellis
or other decoration between pillars).
- Have electric power and light.
- Be big enough to ideally accommodate a minimum of 4
persons plus table and chairs.
Ceremonies in gazebos and other garden structures are normally
limited to the period between 1 April and 30 September when the
weather is likely to be fine.
However, given the uncertainty of the English climate - even in
the Garden of England - if the weather is bad a ceremony may have
to take place inside the venue.
Couples and venues therefore do need to consider a "wet weather"
contingency plan. Unfortunately other temporary structures such as
marquees cannot currently be licensed.
