It’s not by chance that the unique and independent little company:Ceremony NorthWest is based in the creative little town, Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire. And it’s not by chance that we’ve been building strong connections with Canal St, Manchester.

Lita and Carol at Ceremony NorthWest are working with other local creative artisans in Hebden Bridge, Manchester and Liverpool…across the North West, to launch a fantastic Civil Partnership / Gay Wedding Fayre next spring 2012.
Did you know that your venue of choice need not have a license when you have your ceremony with an Independent Celebrant?
You simply do the legal bit of your Civil Union with the regisrty office…takes about 20 minutes…the day or the moring before…and then you are free to have the ceremony of your choice at the venue of your choice! Now that’s something they don’t tell you!
Of course, we, at Ceremony NorthWest always love to visit you to plan your ceremony wherever you want it to take place…indoors, at home, in a marquee in your garden, in a boat, up a hill, in a yurt or tipi, among the bluebells in Spring, the meadows in Summer, in forrests in Autumn, on snowy mountains in Winter…..in another country even…wherever your imagination takes you… but also take a moment to think about holding your ceremony here…with us… here in the Calder Valleys…

Then carry on along this route to reach Saltaire, model workers village designed by mill owner Titus Salt and on to Bradford, birthplace of the Bradford Labour Union after the 1890 Manningham Mills strike as a result of wage cuts.
In December 1890, the strike gave a new impetus to Trade Unionism and a reinvigorated hope for independent political action. As a consequence, the Bradford Labour Union was established. This in turn led to the founding of the Independent Labour Party in 1893…
