Civil ceremony venues and licences

All venues that want to be able to hold civil marriage or civil partnership ceremonies must be licensed to do this and these are called approved venues or premises.

When you’re booking a venue it’s your responsibility to make sure that the venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies.

You’ll need to book your ceremony directly with the venue and you’ll also need to book and pay for a registrar to conduct your wedding ceremony or civil partnership ceremony.
