Llandudno Register Office.
Although in a building opened in 1902, the marriage room in the new Register Office in Lloyd Street,Llandudno,has been renovated.
The service was led by Superintendent Registrar for Aberconwy Dave Rees.
The new room had been decked out in cream with a red carpet,gold rimmed furniture,leather seats and an impressive fireplace.
The decor was sorted out with the help of Conwy's acting chief licensing officer Phil Rafferty who had acted with his wife Lesley as witnesses at the last,low key wedding at Conwy Register Office of a doctor and nurse.
Their wedding marked the end of 85 years of civil marriages in Conwy town.
And Dave Rees said: ``It was fitting that Phil Rafferty was actively involved in the last wedding of one era and the first wedding of a new era.
``The advantage of the new Register Office over the old one is that it has a larger and more opulent room.''
Dignitaries at the first wedding at Llandudno Register Office were Phil Rafferty,Conwy's licensing committee chairman Coun Philip Evans,Coun Dave Cowans, the cabinet member covering registration, Ward Coun Sylvia Barrett and Ken Finch,director of corporate finance and resources,and Gwenda Ells, the former Superintendent Registrar of Aberconwy.
