Marriages and civil partnerships

Marriages and civil partnerships COVID update

Getting married outdoors

Couples may now choose to marry/form their Civil Partnerships outdoors at Approved Premises within Bath and North East Somerset. Please contact your chosen venue for more information. 

Changing ceremony dates or venues

Contact the register office for any of the following reasons:

  • If you change your ceremony date (free of charge with us).
  • If you have cancelled your venue (you must also let the register office know to cancel your registrars).
  • If your notice of marriage or civil partnership expires before your new ceremony date (book an appointment at your local register office to give fresh notices - notices are valid for a year after the date you gave your notice).
  • To apply to reduce the waiting period (if needed).

We're also still taking new bookings for ceremonies in the future.
