Ceremonies at licensed venues

Ceremonies such as marriages, civil partnerships, renewal of vows and baby naming can be held at one of our many venues which have been licensed for that purpose. This includes hotels, stately homes, bars, restaurants, museums, football grounds and historic buildings. See our Licensed venues document (PDF 175KB) for the full list. If you have any questions, contact us by email or on 0113 222 4408.
