Your Wedding Ceremony at the King Arthur Hotel

Avalon is an approved venue for Civil Marriages and Civil Partnerships. The wedding ceremony take place at the far end of room allowing the guests to look out onto the patio and gardens.

We can host wedding ceremonies for up to 140 guests.

Ceremonies can be personalised with readings and music of the couples own choice, providing that these comply with the registrar’s requirements.

After the wedding ceremony the newly weds can lead their guests to a drinks reception in our courtyard and enjoy our picturesque gardens.


“Our wedding day was the best day of our lives it wouldn’t have been the same if it had been anywhere else,
we can definitely predict that The King Arthur is going to be the place to get married”

The Ceremony & The Registrar

With effect from 1st October 2013, the Swansea Registration Service has changed its booking procedures  for Civil Marriages and Civil Partnership Ceremonies. Couples are now able to secure a booking up to two years in advance of their chosen date. All details relating to the solemnisation of ceremonies will be discussed with the registrar. Certain legal requirements will need to be discussed with the registrar and complied with. This will take place between yourselves and the registrar. The King Arthur Hotel takes no responsibility for the organisation of the service and will accept no responsibility for any charges incurred between yourselves and the registrar.


The ceremony must be a civil service, any readings, music or words which form part of the ceremony must be non-religious. No food or beverage may be consumed in the ceremony one and half hours before, during and after the ceremony. The staff at the Swansea Register Office are available to offer advice and assistance on both Civil Ceremonies and Civil Partnership Ceremonies.  For more information go their website.
