24th June Ceremony Update

Well, it's official. We’ve received the clarity we sought from the Registrar General and can now confirm to you that Civil Marriage and Civil Partnership Ceremonies CAN take place in the Register Office and Approved Premises in Cheshire East from the 4th July 2020.

We are so so excited and expect you are too. You may recall that when the Prime Minister made his announcement yesterday he stated a maximum number of 30 people would be permitted for a ceremony (including couple, two registrars and any other suppliers). This is of course taking into consideration the social distancing still required to keep this virus at bay.

Our team is now in the process of contacting couples who have a ceremony booked in Cheshire East in the next few weeks, so if this is you, we will be in touch very soon.

We have maintained all the way through this pandemic that as long as your venue is open and government restrictions allow, then we will be there to help you tie the knot. It's now, finally, so nice to be able to say with certainty that this is getting closer. If your ceremony is at the Register Office or Mayors Reception Room, Silk Room or Mayors Parlour we will contact you to advise you of maximum numbers for these rooms taking into consideration social distancing guidelines. If your ceremony is at one of our Approved Premises, please contact them to chat through your options and next steps.

This is such fantastic news for so many people, but we also realise that this may not be the news that some of our couples were hoping the Prime Minister would announce either. Remember, our team is here to help. If you are looking to postpone your ceremony please contact our team on ceremonysupport@cheshireeast.gov.uk stating names, date and venue in the subject line of your email, and one of our team will get back to you asap.

Now there is more certainty and you are looking to make a new booking for an Approved Premise please speak with them first, provisionally book your date there and then email our team on ceremonysupport@cheshireeast.gov.uk and we can check our availability.

If you are looking to make a new booking for the Register Office, Mayors Reception Room or Silk Room please email our team on ceremonysupport@cheshireeast.gov.uk and we can check our availability. Please note due to bookings already in the diary, our next availability for these rooms is September 2020.

Have a fabulous Sunny Wednesday and as always, if we hear anything else – we’ll let you know.

With love

Your Ceremony x
