The move is part of an effort by council chiefs to 'improve services' and offer more photo opportunities and better facilities to budding brides and grooms on the their big day.

Mike Lawrence, cabinet member for communities for the authority, spoke to the Mail about the plans.

He said: "Staffordshire County Council are always looking at ways of improving our services to residents and delivering them more cost effectively within the community.

"As part of this, the registration office currently in High Street will be moving to Burton Library.

The move is planned for October time.

"Couples who have already booked and confirmed a ceremony at the High Street venue will still be able to get married there, but are also being offered the opportunity to choose the new library venue should they wish to do so.

"The new location offers many photo opportunities and a contemporary Ceremony Room.

"The office in High Street is currently a shared building with other organisations.

"These will remain when the Registration office moves out and other organisations will be moving in to make best use of the building."

The site has seen been the site for thousands of marriages over the years.

Memorable weddings have included brides arriving in tanks and one couple being whisked off to their reception in a replica ECTO 1 vehicle from Ghostbusters.
