Flowers Suite

The Flowers Suite is available for enhanced marriage ceremonies and civil partnership formations for the couple and up to a total of 60 people, this number includes children and your witnesses.    

A couple can either be seen together, or separately, on arrival and readings and additional elements can be included, such as music or additional vows or promises.  A ceremony checklist will be attached to your confirmation email, please complete this and return it to us at registrars@milton-keynes.gov.uk approximately two weeks before your ceremony is due to take place. 

Any music you would like to be played should, ideally, be on a cd.  If you have a specific track which you would like to be played as you make your entrance, please ensure that this is track one on the cd, we will start the music playing at track two while your guests are being seated and the pre-ceremony interviews are taking place.  Ideally the cd should contain around 20 minutes of music.
