We are currently unable to undertake any ceremonies

We are currently unable to undertake any ceremonies in line with the Prime Minister’s announcement on the 23rd March 2020.
We will contact you as soon as possible as we are dealing with ceremonies booked in priority order. If you are trying to contact us about a ceremony, please email ceremonies@gloucestershire.gov.uk.
We will not be able to amend ceremonies to a new date or take new bookings until we have been informed that the restriction on Civil Marriage and Partnership Ceremonies has been lifted. 
Please continue to review this page for further updates and confirmation for when we can resume new ceremony bookings and amendments.

Ceremony rehearsal

To help your ceremony run more smoothly on the day we offer a rehearsal which will take place at your venue a few days before your ceremony date.

We are happy to offer ceremony rehearsals, for an additional fee.

The rehearsal should be a quick, easy and straightforward process and will help your ceremony run more smoothly on the day – as well as, hopefully, help with the nerves!

The rehearsal will take place at your venue in the days leading up to your ceremony.

We will endeavour to allocate the same Registration Officer who is conducting your actual ceremony but, unfortunately, this cannot always be guaranteed.

You won’t be practising the entire ceremony itself, you should save that excitement for the day – instead you will be concentrating on who needs to stand where and practice the walking in and walking out. The Registration Officer will answer any questions, run through the process, confirm where the special additional touches will take place and make additional notes on the script all in readiness for your ceremony.
