Civil partnership ceremonies
There are lots of additional ways to make your ceremony personal.
Our Registrars can help you choose the perfect ceremony for your special day.
If you would prefer not to have a ceremony there is a simple administration route for registering a civil partnership.
You can make an appointment to visit the registration office to confirm your details and sign the civil partnership schedule in front of 2 witnesses and a registrar.
You may wish to make a promise to one another, you can write your own to make the meaning more personal, or have a look at our examples here
The exchange of rings is a tradition that has been practiced for many years but it is not a compulsory part of the ceremony.
Couples can also exchange gifts if they prefer or they do not need to exchange anything.
Some examples to inspire you and help make your day more personal and special to you.
The Registrar can include as part of your ceremony a thank you to those who have travelled from away for attending or someone who has helped with the all the arrangements.
