Registration services ceremony options

What type of  marriage and civil partnership ceremonies are there available?

We offer three standard ceremonies, the bronze, silver and gold. These
ceremonies are all delivered to a high standard and allow some enhancements within the standard time slot provided. There are options for readings, exchange of rings and the formal ‘giving away’ of the bride or one partner. The bronze ceremony is the shortest of the 3 standard ceremonies the silver ceremony script has more of a modern twist to it, whilst the gold is more traditionally worded.

We also offer a platinum ceremony which attracts an additional fee. The platinum
service ensures that, whenever possible a dedicated registrar will be allocated to you and work with you to piece together your very own bespoke ceremony. You will receive a commemorative copy of your personal ceremony, order of the ceremony, a verse book and in the case of a marriage an information DVD.

We welcome the involvement of family and friends through delivery of poetry or readings and would be happy to offer advice or make suggestions.

What is a celebratory ceremony?

A celebratory ceremony may follow the legal registration of a marriage/formation
of a civil partnership. At the moment the law states that registrations and formations must take place within approved venues. By carrying out the legal registration or formation beforehand we can then conduct the celebratory ceremony in a non approved premise such as a private home or a marquee. These ceremonies can also be carried out outside of the legal hours for marriage or civil partnership, offering more flexibility.
