Marriage and civil partnerships

Information about marriages, civil partnerships, renewal of vows, ceremony options, venues, ceremony fees.

COVID-19 Update

Marriage and civil partnership ceremonies are being postponed in line with the Prime Minister's announcement and the government's continued guidelines.

Notices of marriage and civil partnership will be deferred until we are through the current pandemic period.

Applications to reduce the waiting period for marriages or civil partnerships will no longer be processed. 

Registration staff has made contact with couples initially affected by the government’s social distancing policy. The service will continue to contact couples to advise them of their options in the immediate term and this will continue until the government advises that the full service can resume

All existing email enquiries, are being contacted as soon as possible. Ceremony bookings for 2021 and beyond are being taken by email and our address is registration.service@eastriding.gov.uk.

The service appreciates the difficult situation faced by couples and venues, locally, nationally and internationally during these uncertain times and are doing their best to be as flexible as possible.

The service will be returning enquiries in order of the date received but we acknowledge our reduced staffing level could delay this process.
