Marriages / Civil Ceremonies


Covid Update - Ceremonies

Further to the government announcement on 4 January 2021, all ceremonies during the current lockdown period have been cancelled (if you have a ceremony with us during this period you will be contacted shortly).

Weddings and civil partnership ceremonies must only take place with up to 6 people. Anyone working is not included. These should only take place in exceptional circumstances, for example, an urgent marriage where one of those getting married is seriously ill and not expected to recover or is to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery.

Guidance will change periodically, and we plan to update our guidance as and when any changes are published. We look forward to helping prepare for your special day and thank you for your continued support and patience.

Renewal of Marriage Vows

A ceremony to perhaps celebrate your first wedding anniversary, 10 Years, Silver or Golden Anniversary… or just because you want to!

One of our Celebrant Registrars will perform a Renewal of Vows ceremony in almost any venue of your choice. It does not need to be a Licensed Venue. You can follow the format of a traditional wedding ceremony or enhance your ceremony in any way you wish. This can involve your family and friends, including those who were with you on your wedding day, remembering all those moments in life that will make your day forever special. Our Celebrant Registrar will meet you, discuss options, listen to your ideas and, together with you, will make it happen.

Come and talk to one of our Celebrant Registrars about the various options possible to make your special day a reality.
