Civil partnership registration and ceremonies

Civil partnerships

Since December 2005 same sex couples in permanent relationships have had the opportunity to have their relationship recognised in law. 

The Civil Partnership Act 2004 created a new legal relationship of civil partners. This provides couples with parity of treatment in a wide range of legal matters with couples who enter into marriage. 

There is a formal court based process for dissolution of a partnership. 

Bromley Register Office offers the choice of a simple registration of your partnership or the registration included in a celebratory ceremony. The ceremony can take place at the Civic Centre or at any of our licensed venues in Bromley.
