Final "I do" said at Pageant House in Warwick

Leamington Editorial 4th Dec, 2023   0

THE FINAL”I do” has been said at Pageant House in Warwick.

Warwickshire County Council’s Registration Service held its final marriage ceremony there at the end of November, marking the end of nearly half a century of service.

Leamington based couple Hannah and Alexander were the final couple to tie the knot at 11am on Tuesday November 21, with the ceremony overseen by the longest-serving registrar Sue Lloyd, who joined the service in 1984.

Records show that Pageant House has been in use by Warwickshire’s Registration Service since 1974, with the ceremony room seeing thousands of weddings over the last five decades.




The building takes its name from the Warwick Pageant of 1906, as the then mayor of Warwick loaned the house to the organisers of the pageant.

Earlier this year the registration service licenced and launched newly refurbished ceremony rooms at St John’s House in Warwick.


WCC spokesperson Coun Yousef Dahmash said:  “The very happy occasion of Hannah and Alexander’s marriage does mark the end of an era as the final wedding to be held at Pageant House after nearly half a century as a ceremony room in Warwick.

“I’m pleased that we have now licensed St John’s House as a ceremony venue, it is a building that is steeped in history and is just one of the many venues available across Warwickshire.

“I hope that Hannah and Alexander treasure the memories of their special day, which have been made that extra bit more memorable as the final ceremony at Pageant House and wish them every happiness for their married life together.”
