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.
