@Gemma_Leigh:  I had pretty much the same gap and it worked out fine. I put a list of local bars, museums, coffee shops, zoo, etc. on the wedding program that we handed out at the ceremony. It’s a pretty common Catholic ceremony problem (not sure if youre having a Catholic ceremony or not), so I think a lot of people are familiar with it, none of my guests seemed to mind!

I have been to weddings with a larger gap between ceremony and reception. 

In some of those cases the guests were invited to the mother of the grooms house for a luncheon and in other cases guests were given refreshments at the chapel site after the ceremony. You could also always invite them to the gardens or wherever you have having your phots taken and provide refreshments for them there.
