Licensed venues for marriages and civil partnerships


There are a number of premises in County Durham which are registered as places where civil marriage ceremonies and civil partnership ceremonies can be held. You can find a full list on this page.

Weddings and civil partnerships are able to proceed in our register offices from 2 December, but numbers are restricted. If you have a wedding ceremony booked in a church, hotel or other venue, please contact them directly if you have any queries or require further information. Wedding receptions are not permitted so please contact your venue should you have a reception booked.

All naming ceremonies and non-statutory celebrations are still suspended. Email any queries you have to theceremonyteam@durham.gov.uk.

You can order birth, death, marriage and civil partnership certificates online or over the phone.

Church/faith weddings

Many people wish to have a church or faith wedding. If you wish to do this you should contact the minister in the registration district where you live. We do not hold comprehensive information on local churches and places of worship.
