Licensing of approved venues
This approval is to allow for the solemnisation of civil marriages, civil partnerships, civil reaffirmation of marriage vows and civil naming ceremonies at the approved venue. The approval is valid for three years and can be applied for via our application form attached to this page. It's important that you contact the registration service prior to the submission of the application form to discuss the potential application.
A fee is payable for the application, which isn't refundable in the event of an unsuccessful application. Registration of a religious building has a different process - find out more using the related link on this page.
