Weddings and civil partnerships at approved venues

There are a range of venues in Middlesbrough that have been approved to hold marriage and civil partnership ceremonies. This provides the convenience of having the ceremony and wedding breakfast at one venue and at a more variable time, as ceremonies can be conducted outside of normal working days, such as Sundays and Bank Holidays, except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.

You must first check the availability of the venue, then contact the Register Office and confirm that Registration Officers will be available on your chosen day and time.
