Warrington is now under tier 4 restrictions, meaning that weddings and civil partnership ceremonies may only take place with up to 6 people present (including the couple). Anyone working is not included.

However, according to Government guidance, ceremonies should only take place in tier 4 areas in exceptional circumstances, for example, an urgent ceremony where one of those getting married or forming a civil partnership is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or is to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery.

If there is no exceptional reason for your ceremony to go ahead, it must be postponed until tier 4 restrictions are lifted.

Please call 01925 442762 or email registrars@warrington.gov.uk to discuss your ceremony.

Your marriage or civil partnership can't take place without registrars in attendance. There's an additional fee for the attendance of a registration team at an approved venue which is payable in addition to the fee charged by the venue itself.

Book a registrar to attend your ceremony at an approved premise.

As of 2nd December 2019, couples in an opposite sex relationship will be able to form a civil partnership, just as same sex couples can do now. For more information please visit www.gov.uk.
