Weddings/Civil Partnerships

Getting married or forming your civil partnership in Monmouthshire

The first decision to be made when planning your wedding or civil partnership is where you would like to hold your ceremony. You can choose from:

  • the register office in Usk
  • one of our approved venues
  • or a church or registered building

You may not form a civil partnership in church.

Register Office

The Register Office is situated at Rhadyr, Usk. You may marry or form your civil partnership in the company of up to six guests. It would be the basic legal requirements only.

If you have more than six guests or you wish to personalise the ceremony, we can also offer The Old Parlour at Usk; for the bride and groom and up to thirty guests.

More information is available on:

As of 13 March 2014 the Marriages (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 comes into force, enabling couples of the same sex to marry (as opposed to forming a Civil Partnership) For more information please see

Apologies that you had an unnecessary rush - we are constantly updating timetables but unfortunately on this occasion the holiday time for this session was not updated due to an administrative error. This has now been amended. Continue reading 'Swimming timetables' >

emmab86 commented on Swimming timetables:

The Caldicot swimming timetable stated that the public swim finished at 1pm the other day, so my husband rushed to take my son there only to be told that the session ended at 4pm when he got there. I can think of several other occasions when the timetables have been inaccurate. What's the point in having them if staff cant be bothered to update them!? Continue reading 'Swimming timetables' >
