The University of Hull has a licence to perform marriage ceremonies and civil partnerships in the Canham Turner building, which offers a choice of tastefully decorated rooms, creating the perfect setting for your service.

Your ceremony could be a simple or as lavish as you wish. You could include readings, recorded music, video or even a live pianist. Each union is unique and we'll help to build a ceremony that reflects you.

Following the ceremony, your photographer will escort you and your guests into the University's beautiful grounds and gardens for your wedding photographs.

Once you have decided on a date for your wedding contact us to make a provisional booking and then contact the Registrar direct to make the necessary arrangements for the ceremony. Guidance notes regarding the necessary formalities are available from the Superintendent Registrar's Office.
