Leicester Guildhall

Afternoon of Saturday 5th February 2011

We will be exchanging our vows at the Guildhall, Leicester.

Leicester is very privileged in having one of the best preserved timber framed halls in the country, dating back six hundred years. The Guildhall has had many uses and lives. The Great Hall itself was built in about 1390 as a meeting place for the Guild of Corpus Christi (a small but powerful group of businessman and gentry).

The Great Hall was often used as a courtroom and a jury Room was created above the Mayor's Parlour. The Guildhall was also used regularly for theatrical performances, banquets and civic events.

If you are joining us for the ceremony, we hope you enjoy exploring the Guildhall and its beautiful surroundings.

Hotel Maiyango

Evening of Saturday 5th February 2011

We will be holding our reception at Hotel Maiyango. Please note this is not the restaurant, at street level, but the hotel, which is accessible via a lift to the right of the restaurant entrance. 

The reception will be held in the Glass Bar and Gallery. The Maiyango Glass Bar is situated on the 3rd floor of the building overlooking Leicester Cathedral spire and the rooftops of High Street. The floor to ceiling glass windows provide the perfect setting to enjoy these spectacular views. The outside terrace is an ideal location to look out over the city. 

Food will be served at the reception - please let us know if you have any food allergies or dietary requirements.
