The Register Office in Bath is proud to offer a range of non-statutory ceremonies which enable people to celebrate important aspects of their lives with their family and friends.

The non-statutory ceremonies are available in any of our ceremony rooms in the Guildhall and at any of our Approved Premises. Alternatively, we can perform a commitment ceremony in a private home or other venue.

Naming Ceremonies

Naming Ceremonies offer a non-religious alternative to Christenings.

The ceremony is an opportunity to welcome your new arrival into the family and make promises of commitment involving family and friends in a unique celebration.

Commitment Ceremonies

These ceremonies are intended for adult couples, of any gender, who wish to celebrate their commitment to each without entering into a legal marriage or civil partnership. They are ideal for couples who cannot marry for legal reasons or for those who simply do not wish to marry/form a civil partnership.

Commitment ceremonies are non-statutory; in other words, they carry no legal status but provide a wonderful occasion for family and friends to gather together and show support to a committed couple.

Renewal Ceremonies

Renewals of Marriage or Civil Partnership Vows Ceremonies provide a unique platform for couples who wish to restate their commitment to one another.

Maybe you want to celebrate a landmark wedding anniversary with a special ceremony. Or maybe you had a small wedding and now have the time and money to celebrate it again? Whatever the reason we can make your special day even more memorable.
