If you'd like to make a booking for a marriage ceremony, please contact one of our register offices.
If you've already booked a civil partnership ceremony with us but would now like to change this booking to a marriage ceremony, please contact the office where you made your original booking and the staff will be happy to discuss what you need to do next.
Unfortunately, same-sex couples cannot yet get married in British consulates, armed forces bases overseas or military chapels.
Civil partnership ceremonies
Civil partnership ceremonies are still available but only to same-sex couples.
Conversions and couples already in an existing legal relationship
If you wish to do so, you can convert your civil partnership into a marriage.
Although it may be possible to do so in the future, you can't yet convert your legal gender within a marriage and stay married.
Your local register office will aim to answer any questions you may have regarding marriage or civil partnerships.
