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:
