Births, deaths, weddings and civil partnerships

Bromley registration service announcement

Following updates to government guidance on the coronavirus outbreak, The Bromley Register Office has adjusted some registration services as outlined below:

Death registrations

Registering a death during the coronavirus pandemic

Birth registrations

Registering a birth during the coronavirus pandemic

Wedding and civil partnership ceremonies

Further to the government announcement of 23 June, where the Prime Minister announced that religious and civil marriage ceremonies and civil partnership formations will be allowed to recommence in England if certain conditions around social distancing are met from 4 July -

In order to implement these new safety measures, we are planning to recommence our first ceremonies from 3 August at Bromley Civic Centre for couples who have those dates already booked.

Whilst we recognise the government has permitted a maximum number of 30 guests, we hope you understand that we will need to adapt this number to each of our ceremony rooms in order to maintain safety standards.

We are contacting couples by e-mail who have booked dates from 3 August and those who have opted to postpone their ceremonies from March onwards, to discuss the options available to them in date rotation of their original booking. If you are, or have been affected please look out for this correspondence from us, and reply back by e-mail with your preferred option. We will then confirm final details as soon as possible after that.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this very challenging period.

Future ceremonies

We are not taking any more bookings for 2020 until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you wish to book for 2021/2022, please complete the ceremony enquiry form.
