Are you and your partner making it official? Then you’ll need the perfect London venue to host your civil partnership celebration. Perhaps you’re planning an intimate event with your nearest and dearest, or maybe you’re organising a huge party so all your friends and family can be there. Aim to secure your civil ceremony venue as soon as possible (especially if you’re looking to invite more than 80 guests) because the most popular spaces book out up to one year in advance. Add glamour to your event by holding your civil partnership celebration somewhere special, like a banquet hall or ultra modern city centre hotel, or choose a unique space that'll get your guests talking, like a garden, museum or historic home.

Civil Ceremony ideas


Some expert tips for organizing your civil ceremony:

  • allocate the bulk of your budget to venue hire, catering and drink, and entertainment

  • choose the date of the celebration carefully – sometimes it’s cheaper to book the venue midweek

  • consider whether to provide a dress code (like black tie, formal or fancy dress). You may also want to host a themed ceremony. In that case, think about a venue that suits the mood. How about country house wedding venue for a Downton Abbey-themed celebration or a railway arch for a more industrial feel?

  • plan early and with your purpose in mind because it's those personal touches that'll have your guests talking for years to come


Things to consider when hiring a space for your event:

  • whether you want to have the civil ceremony and reception in the same venue

  • whether it’s important to you to hire a venue with gay staff members or owners

  • the best seating arrangement for your needs

  • the venue's cancellation policy

  • see if the venue works with any recommended suppliers, like caterers

  • check the civil ceremony venue’s location and see whether it’s convenient for the guests to get there
