The ceremony

A civil marriage ceremony does not have any religious content, but you can add individual touches like non-religious music and extra readings to the legal wording. You can also video the ceremony.

A Civil Partnership is legally formed by the signing of the civil partnership schedule. Couples who wish to make arrangements for a non-religious ceremony can contact us.
