Book a civil marriage or partnership ceremony 

Decide on a venue

Would like your ceremony to take place in a ceremonies suite, in one of our Registration offices, or at another venue in North Ayrshire?

Choose a date and time

Check the availability of your preferred date and time with your Registrar and your chosen venue. Do this well in advance especially for popular locations and times of year. Please note: no civil marriages or partnerships are carried out on 25, 26 December or 1, 2 January.

What happens next?

Your Registrar/Civil Celebrant will contact you approximately 3 months prior to your ceremony to invite you to discuss your ceremony plan. We believe that your ceremony is unique and should reflect your individual tastes and personality. You may wish to consider ways to make your ceremony unique such as personal promises/vows, music and recitals/readings. Our Readings suitable for Civil Ceremonies booklet (PDF, 557kb) contains some suggestions.

We will assist you to ensure your day is as you always dreamt it would be.
