Approved venues

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is pleased to be able to offer a range of different venues for civil ceremonies. Some of our venues can offer facilities for parties of over 100 people whilst others are more suitable for smaller, intimate ceremonies.

Once you have contacted the venue of your choice to ascertain their availability, it is then vitally important that you contact this office and confirm that Registration Officers will be available on your chosen day and time.

One of the advantages in choosing a Royal Borough approved venue for your marriage or civil partnership registration is that you may customise your ceremony with readings and music and take your time, ensuring that not only yourselves but your guests can relax and enjoy the experience.

This extra time also allows you and your partner to be interviewed (a legal requirement) separately by the Registrar prior to the ceremony. This means that the first time you see each other will be when you stand side by side to take your vows thus maintaining an important tradition.

If you are planning on getting married or forming a civil partnership at any one of our approved venues for civil ceremonies your booking will be subject to a non-refundable booking fee. There will also be additional fees to pay for the attendance of the Registrars at your ceremony. These additional fees must be paid no later than four weeks before the ceremony.

It is now possible for us to conduct your civil ceremony after 6pm and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is pleased to be able to offer two evening ceremony times on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 6pm and 7.30pm. However, please be aware that there is an additional £100 Evening Fee payable for any ceremony booked from 6pm onwards.

See below for a list of the current approved venues.

The costs of an Approved Venue marriage or civil partnership registration are as follows:

Fee up to 31 March 2015 from 1 April 2015
Non-refundable booking fee £125 £125
Attendance fee (weekday) £350 £375
Attendance fee (Saturday) £450 £475
Attendance fee (Sunday or Bank Holiday) £575 £600
Evening fee £100 £100
Certificates £4 £4

Ceremonies may be conducted in an Approve Venue every day including Sundays and Bank Holidays.

The non-refundable booking fee is payable when you book the date of your ceremony. The fee for the attendance of the Registrars at your ceremony must be paid no later than four weeks before the ceremony.

If you wish to be married or form a civil partnership at one of the approved venues, or need further information, please visit the Register Office, or contact us by telephone on 020 7361 4100 or by email at: chelsea.registeroffice@rbkc.gov.uk.
