How to arrange a ceremony

List of venues for civil ceremonies in Suffolk and fees and how to book a registrar and photos of Suffolk County Council ceremony rooms.

Civil ceremonies can be held at any of our registration offices or approved venues. Approved venues are private buildings that we have licensed to hold ceremonies conducted by our registrars.

Please note that it is not possible to include any animals (other than assistance pets) in ceremonies at either registration offices or approved venues.

Fees

Each approved venue is covered by a specific register office. Pick a register office to find out which approved venues it covers:

Find a list of Suffolk Registration Offices showing their contact details and opening times.

If you have booked one of our ceremony rooms we will organise a registrar for you.

You need to book a registrar to perform a ceremony at any of our approved venues. You can book your ceremony as far in advance as you wish.

It's your responsibility to ensure you have booked your venue for the same time and date that you have booked the registrar.

You can book a registrar by contacting the register office that serves your chosen venue.

Our ceremonies leaflet has details about the cost of booking registrars for approved venues.
