Marriage and civil partnerships

Changes to registration services

To keep customers and staff safe during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and to use our limited resources in the best way possible we have made changes to our registration services. Our current priority is arranging and providing death registrations, birth registrations and responding to enquiries about ceremonies that have already been booked with our registrars.

We are now accepting new bookings for ceremonies. To book, postpone or rearrange a ceremony already booked with the registration team please email:


The fee for a marriage or civil partnership varies. It depends on where or if you choose to have your ceremony.
