Giving notice of a Civil Partnership ceremony

Please note: We are not currently taking bookings for any ceremonies. We are postponing notice of marriage and civil partnership appointments until further notice.

We are experiencing an unprecedented number of enquiries. We completely understand, but ask that customers remain patient. Please be assured we will respond to enquiries as soon as we can, but there will inevitably be a delay. To postpone or rearrange a ceremony already booked with the registration team please email:

The registration of a civil partnership takes place when both of you sign the civil partnership schedule in the presence of two witnesses and the Registrar. If you wish to, you can incorporate your registration into a ceremony.
