A civil marriage is a secular (non-religious) ceremony that is conducted and registered by a Registrar.

The ceremony cannot have any religious content, but individual touches can be added such as non-religious music and readings.

We make a commitment to ensure that we will do all we can to make your special day a happy and memorable occasion.
