Couples tying the knot in Hounslow will have a picturesque setting at the new register office at Feltham Lodge .

The historic building, which dates back to the 1800s, has magnificent gardens providing the perfect backdrop for people getting married, having a civil partnership or renewing their vows from this summer.

Following months of refurbishment works, while retaining its Victorian features, there will be larger rooms to cater for both bigger services as well as more intimate services, with a choice of three reception rooms.

Registrars are settling into their new home on Harlington Road West, Feltham , the former home of Age UK, with the move taking place over the next few weeks from their current building next to the Civic Centre in Lampton Road which has been sold for housing as the council moves to a smaller HQ closer to Hounslow town centre.

All citizenship and nationality services are now taking place at The Lodge, with the registration service for births, deaths and marriages moving over from May 23.

The move is planned to be completed by May 31, with marriage ceremonies starting from June 1.

Susan Hayter, head of registration and nationality services, said: “We’re delighted to be a part of this exciting time in the history of Hounslow council’s registration and nationality service.

“Registration is the cornerstone of our society and all of us, at some time in our lives has the need to visit our service. Moving to The Lodge will enable us to expand the service and offer more choices to our residents and customers.”
