Locations that are suitable for holding civil wedding ceremonies are referred to as “civil wedding venues.” There are no stipulations for a particular faith, and the establishment has no connections with churches or other places of worship. The couple can have their wedding at any location that has been authorised for civil marriages and partnerships. This ensures that they will be able to wed in a setting that does not require them to use any religious symbols during the ceremony, such as Bibles or crosses.
The couple can choose the kind of ceremony they want, ranging from a civil partnership to a civil marriage to a same-sex marriage, and many others, depending on what they want for their special day.
Where can a Civil Wedding Take Place?

- Any private location that is appropriate for a private civil ceremony, such as a luxurious villa
- A Meeting House, if one or both of the partners are members of a society or are connected to the group in some other way, such as by regularly attending meetings
- The residence of one of the spouses if that partner is unable to leave their home due to circumstances such as being bedridden or incarcerated, for instance in jail.
