Civil Partnership News

The Government announced on 2 October 2018 that Civil Partnerships are to be extended to heterosexual couples as well as same-sex couples. This hasn’t yet been made law, as they will need to consult on details around legal and financial rights. No timetable has been announced, and changes will be made as soon as there is a suitable opportunity to change the law. If you have any specific enquiries, you can contact the Government Equalities Office on geo.correspondence@geo.gov.uk or 0300 200 3343.
You can read more about Civil Partnerships in our recent blog “What Is A Civil Partnership”, and in our More Information pages.
We’ll update this section as the Government release further information.

Marriages & Partnerships

Here at Somerset Registration Service, we officiate at around 3000 civil ceremonies across Somerset and North Somerset every year. We are here to guide you through the process of getting married or forming a civil partnership.

In this section you’ll find our step by step guide to giving notice that will help you through the legal preliminaries, and links to book an appointment online at your local registration office. We’ve put together a comprehensive guide to help you plan your wedding or partnership, from what music and readings you can use, to whether you can get married in a garden or include your children in the ceremony.

You’ll also find downloadable guidance for basic and full ceremonies, along with the pre-ceremony check forms for you to let us know what details to include on the day. If you can’t find the answer to your question, just get in touch with the team and we can add it to our guide.
