We offer Commitment Ceremonies for adult couples of any gender who wish to celebrate their commitment to each other without undergoing a marriage or civil partnership. These ceremonies carry no legal status.
At Southend, the Jubilee Room and the Victoria Room are ideal venues for holding a Commitment Ceremony. Please contact the Register Office for full details of cost and availability.
The ceremony is conducted by a Celebrant, who will meet with the couple prior to the actual occasion to offer advice. The Celebrant will treat any details relating to the ceremony with the strictest confidence.
The occasion can be shared with family and friends, or the ceremony can be held in private without guests.
To make an enquiry please use the online Provisional Booking Form for Commitment Ceremonies/Renewal of Vows.
