Weddings and Civil Partnerships COVID-19

From 19 July the rules for weddings, civil partnership ceremonies and receptions will change. There will no longer be a maximum number-cap for attendees.

However, as COVID infection numbers in Solihull continue to rise, we are urging people to wear face coverings when attending a ceremony and continue with COVID-safety measures.

For the most up to date COVID-19 guidance for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies visit the Gov.UK website.

The Register Office is only open for pre-booked appointments.

We have approved the following venues for marriage, civil partnerships, renewal of vows, commitment and naming ceremonies.

Please check with your chosen venue that your ceremony date falls within the period of their license. We cannot be held liable for a booking made with a venue after their license has expired.

Registrar availability

If you choose an approved venue you will require a registrar to perform the ceremony. It’s important that you check registrar availability before paying a deposit to your chosen venue.
