Venue approval for civil marriages and partnerships

We need to approve a premises before it can be used to hold a civil ceremony or wedding. The grant of approval will be valid for a minimum of three years.

Your premises will be inspected and your application will be put in a local newspaper.

It is a criminal offence to carry out unapproved activities and, if convicted, you could be given a £5,000 fine.
