Conversion of Civil Partnerships
“In December 2005 it became legal for same sex couples, to cement their relationships with a legal and binding contract known as a Civil Partnership. This document has to be signed and witnessed in front of a Registrar.”

That covers the legal requirements, now let us get down to how you want your special day to be. I can hold your Civil Partnership ceremony in your home or garden, or a local hall, a Hotel, it will be your choice, and the venue does not have to be licensed for marriage. The ceremony can be the same day as your Registry Office signing or at a later date to suit you and your guests.
If you want to make your Civil Partnership celebrations unique to you please look at all of the information and suggestions provided on the Civil Weddings page. As your Wedding Celebrant I can help you create a bespoke and memorable wedding ceremony of your dreams.
If you prefer not to do the legal bit at the Register office, you can just have a Commitment Ceremony, this type of service however has no legal standing, but can be a beautiful option if you are not able to comply with the legal requirements for a Civil Partnership.
Again please feel free to call or email me if anything you need to know is not covered by my Website.
