Weddings and Ceremonies at Approved Premises

Weddings and Ceremonies at Approved Premises

All approved premises for marriage and civil partnership have selected rooms that are licensed for the civil ceremony to take place in. The license dictates the maximum number of people the room can accommodate so please discuss this directly with your chosen venue. The maximum number of persons does include the couple, two witnesses and all guests inclusive of babies and children.  

Photography and some live music are permitted. Please discuss any live music requests with the Registration Team prior to your ceremony.
