Ceremonies

Weddings

At Westminster, we ensure that your wedding is a special occasion for everyone involved. With more than 140 world class venues to choose from, our exceptional team of registrars go above and beyond to make your dream day a reality. Whether you are planning a spectacular celebration or an intimate event, we can customise your ceremony to your taste as a couple.

Civil Partnership

Available to same-sex couples, your ceremony can take place across any of our renowned venues. It is our pleasure to adapt the ceremony to your exact requirements.

Renewal of Vows

Renewing your vows is an opportunity to reaffirm your commitment to each other in a personalised ceremony with your loved ones. This is a wonderful way to celebrate a special anniversary or a renewed commitment to one another. Additionally, a renewal of vows ceremony may be the right option for you if you were married abroad and would like a formal ceremony in the UK.

Naming ceremonies

A baby naming ceremony is a chance to welcome your child into the world and into your family, to announce their name, and to give family members and friends the honour of becoming their mentors or guardians in life. This is a non-religious civil ceremony which we can help you adapt to make it personal to you. Your ceremony can be held in any of our Westminster venues. 

I’m ready to start planning my celebration. Where do I start?

Take a look at our Guide to Getting Married.

In order to book your ceremony, you’ll need to know where you’d like it to take place. Browse our wide array of licensed venues.

We have carefully created a selection of options for your ceremony wording, exclusive to Westminster. Simply select your favourite, or use them as a template to write your own, unique script.

We believe that your ceremony should reflect your relationship. Once you’ve found your dream location, we’re here to help you design a celebration that’s intrinsically ‘you’.

Below we have outlined the many ways you can personalise your ceremony. Once you have booked your ceremony, just let us know any changes you’d like to make.

Vows

Your relationship is unique, and your ceremony should reflect this. Incorporate your personal style into the vows you share, or choose from our selection of scripts. 

Who to include

You are welcome to include your friends and family in your ceremony as much a you’d like. If you’d like us to include guest vows in your ceremony, or if you’d like your pets to take centre stage as ring bearer or guest of honour, we’d be happy to accommodate this.

Music & readings

If you want to walk down the aisle to a special number, we’d be happy to include your music choices into the service. You are also welcome to add readings to the ceremony. However, please be aware that any music or readings must be non-religious - just ask your registrar if you're unsure.

Meet your Registrar

We understand that you may want to meet the person who’ll be marrying you ahead of the day
of your ceremony. Wherever possible, we’d be happy to accommodate this. Again, just let your registrar know.
