Approved Venues for Civil Weddings and Civil Partnership Registrations within Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council


Civil Weddings and Civil Partnership Registrations can take place in an approved venue which has been licensed to hold wedding ceremonies and civil partnership registrations, subject to the availability of a Registrar.  

If you are planning on getting married or having a civil partnership registration you can make a provisional booking.  Easter to October is our busiest season and Fridays and Saturdays are particularly popular days.

You are recommended to provisionally book a registrar as early as possible to secure the date and time.

It is very important that you check the availability of a Registrar for the day of your ceremony and your chosen location, before you pay a deposit with the venue. Once you have completed this, you will be given an AP1 form by the venue. This should then be filled in and returned, along with your notice forms and the other documents needed to get married or form a civil partnership, to Lisburn Registration Office. Appointment required from 1st April 2019.
