Rotherham museum to be wedding venue

Have your say

Couples looking to tie the knot in Rotherham can now take their vows in Clifton Museum.

From Monday, the recently redecorated Dining Room in the museum will become a ceremony venue for Rotherham Registration Service.

In December alone, 23 couples have booked ceremonies in the Grade II-listed Georgian building.

Each couple will be allowed a maximum of 40 seated guests in the ground-floor room at the back of the house with views overlooking the park.

Louise Sennitt, superintendent registrar for Rotherham, described the new ceremony room as ‘stunning’.

“Clifton Park Museum is a charming building in its own right,” she added.

“But after redecoration the ceremony room looks really lovely. I am sure couples will think so too, especially as the building is surrounded by beautiful parkland, which is perfect for photographs, making the museum a wonderful venue for anyone wanting a ceremony.”
