Marriages of same sex couples
Same sex marriage is due to come into effect in summer 2014. Westminster Register Office is very proud of the number of Civil Partnership ceremonies we have registered and the fact that we have at times been the top Civil Partnership Register office - registering the most Civil Partnerships in England and Wales.
If you are interested in having a same sex marriage and would like to be kept up to date on the implementation of Marriage of same sex couple then please contact us with your details. Alternatively if you would like to make a ceremony booking you are most welcome to do so, we will take your booking a Civil Partnership booking and inform of the requirements once the full details of same sex marriages are known.
