Service update 5 July

Brighton and Hove registration service is delighted to announce that we are now able to resume ceremonies for marriage and civil partnership. All ceremonies at Brighton Town Hall will take place in our beautifully redecorated Regency Room, where we can safely welcome a wedding party of 10 people distanced at 2 metres.

We realise that this will come as good news to many couples, yet will be disappointing to those who had looked forward to a larger celebration. Our policy remains in place on postponing ceremonies to a later date, which we offer free of charge into a similar ceremony slot. We will review restrictions along with any easing in government advice. Our priority is keeping our customers, staff and the wider community safe.

To enable us to maintain a safe and secure environment ceremony times will be further apart than usual and we may have to change the time of some ceremonies slightly to allow for this. We will always offer the nearest time to the original slot, and apologise for any inconvenience.

We are currently prioritising the rebooking of ceremonies that were cancelled during lockdown, but we hope to be in a position to open our diary to new bookings for 2020 by the end of July. Please visit our website for updates. We are currently taking bookings for 2021 and beyond.

If your ceremony is taking place at an approved venue, please refer to them for guidance

Our ceremony team looks forward to seeing you.
