Marriages and civil partnerships during the Covid-19 Tier 4 restrictions

Following the recent Government announcement, weddings and civil partnership ceremonies are unable to take place except in exceptional circumstances, for example, an urgent ceremony where one of those getting married is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or is to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery.

If you have any queries please contact this office on 0191 433 000 or email our ceremonies team at
