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.

Civil partnership conversions

If you wish to convert your civil partnership to a marriage you will be able to do so at any one of Gloucestershire’s Registration Offices.

It should be noted that the conversion process is not a marriage ceremony, it’s more like a commitment ceremony. You must see the Registration Officer here at the Registration Office where you will be required to provide proof that you are currently in a civil partnership and that it has not been dissolved.

Once you’ve met with the Registration Officer you may sign the conversion declaration there and then, or you may choose to complete the legal process as part of a non statutory celebratory conversion ceremony in one of our Approved Venues, so as to share the occasion with your family and friends

Once you have signed the conversion declaration you will be issued with a marriage certificate to prove that your civil partnership has been converted into a marriage.
