Places to say I do

Gloucestershire is a beautiful county, offering a range of different ceremony venues. Your special ceremony can take place in a registration office or an approved venue; the choice is yours.

As well as our four registration offices throughout Gloucestershire, we offer a wide range of approved venues including castles, luxurious hotels, manor houses and Cotswold stone barns — there is something for everyone.

Search our list of approved venues and registration offices to find your perfect ceremony venue.

Please note, the grant of a civil ceremony licence to a venue is not an endorsement of their services but confirmation that the venue is suitable for the conduct of marriage ceremonies and civil partnerships in line with the requirements of the Marriage Act 1949 and the Civil Partnership Act 2004.
