Marriages and civil partnerships

Bromley registration service announcement

Covid-19 pandemic

Wedding and civil partnership ceremonies in Tier 4 have been postponed. They will only take place in exceptional circumstances such as:

  • a serious illness not expected to recover, or
  • undergoing debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery.

In these circumstances, please contact us at registrars@bromley.gov.uk outlining the reasons why a marriage or civil partnership needs to take place as a matter of urgency. 

In light of the tier 4 restrictions, we will not be taking any new bookings as we are exceptionally busy dealing with rescheduling couples whose ceremonies cannot take place as planned, so please check back to this page when the tier for London changes.

Those who have a ceremony booked with us will be contacted as soon as possible and in date order.

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