Civil Ceremony


Civil wedding venues - The advantage of a civil ceremony is that it can be completely tailor-made to suit your taste and personality. The only issue is that there is a lot of choice, so you'll need to be more organised than if you were simply getting married in your local church.

There are many reasons why you might choose a civil wedding. Perhaps you have no religious beliefs, maybe you're getting married for the second time -- or maybe you just want to get married somewhere a bit different.

Wherever it is held, a civil ceremony:

  • Will contain no religious elements
  • Is conducted by the superintendent registrar or deputy and registered by the registrar
  • Can take place in a register office or a licensed venue after 8am and before 6pm, subject to staffing arrangements
  • The service can last from between 10 and 30 minutes.

The usual proof of your name, age, marital status, address, occupation and nationality is required.
