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

tocidlac commented on Council tax and benefits:

At a time when I thought the Council was trying to save money I have received over the period of two weeks five communications from the `Shared Benefits Service` relating to `Claim Re-Assesed`, `Change in Income`, etc, all being many pages of incomprehensible figures taken to six decimal points. This culminates in a demand for unpaid Council Tax for the year of 67p, payable by Nov 15th, after which, Bailiffs perhaps? You couldn`t make it up. Continue reading 'Council tax and benefits' >
