Civil partnerships

Civil Partnerships are a way of giving adult same-sex couples the opportunity to enter into a binding commitment to each other.

Couples are required to give notice of intention to register at a local authority registration office.  Civil Partnership notice forms  may be obtained from any Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages in Scotland or you can download notices from www.gro-scotland.gov.uk

The ceremony can take the form of simply signing the register in front of the registrar and two witnesses, or the couple can opt for a ceremony designed to meet their wishes.

Ceremonies can be held within a registration office or at a venue agreed between the couple and the Registrar. If you want to discuss your ideas further we are happy to assist you.
