Book a civil ceremony

How to book

We offer three types of civil ceremony:

  • Enhanced
  • Standard
  • Legal

For ceremonies at a licensed venue or registered building you can book more than a year in advance.

For ceremonies at a registration office, you can book up to a year in advance. You must book at least 29 days before your ceremony.

Do not book anything else for your ceremony until we have confirmed that a registration team is available.
