Useful Contacts

Biggin Village Hall For Evening Receptions

The village hall in Biggin by Hartington is modern and well equipped and has been used on many occasions for evening functions if you choose to have a daytime wedding at Biggin Hall.  We are able to offer bar and catering facilities for your evening function if you wish.


We have worked with the following florists to dress the hall for ceremonies:  Absolutely Fabulous, based in Ashbourne who can be reached on 01335 346111 and the Green Pavilion Florists who are based in Buxton and are on 01298 77309

Cakes, Photography and Stationery

For cakes, photography, printing and stationery we have used a number of suppliers, so please get in touch with us to discuss on 01298 84451.

Registration of Marriages

The first point of contact should be with our local Registrar at Bakewell - 01629 535261 -  as bookings can only be made through that office.

All arrangements with the Registrar’s Office are entirely the responsibility of the engaged couple, and it is vitally important that they complete all necessary matters within the time scales required by the Registrar’s Office, and to the Registrar’s entire satisfaction.

An important element of the procedure is the formal interview of the bride & groom prior to the ceremony to check that details are unchanged; the registrar requires a private room to be set aside for 30 minutes prior to the ceremony with a table & two chairs: this is normally the table situated directly outside the upper Bridal bedroom.

Hired Furniture, Marquees etc.

We are happy for you to arrange to hire in items such as marquees for your wedding. Any hired or brought in goods, in particular chairs, tables and marquees cannot be delivered prior to the hire period, and must be collected by the end of the hire period.  This is especially important to plan for if your hire starts on or finishes on a bank holiday as hire companies may find it difficult to collect or deliver on a bank holiday. 

If this is a part of your plans then sitting and discussing it with our dedicated wedding coordinator should help you to iron out the details. 

Event Insurance

A legal requirement that is not to be overlooked!  Event insurance for Public Liability is compulsory and must be paid for with the initial deposit.  Talk to us about arranging cover for this for you to make sure you are covered.
