Civil ceremonies with Tower Hamlets Register Office

Welcome to Tower Hamlets Registration Service at St Georges Town Hall

Happily Ever After




Introduction Welcome to the Tower Hamlets Registration Service. We are in the heart of the East End and are known for having the best of London in one borough. Our register office is located in St Georges Town Hall, Shadwell, with several historic landmarks nearby such as the iconic Cable Street Mural on the side of our building. Tower Hamlets is a vibrant and exciting part of the East End of London. This guide will take you on a journey from the beginning point of the booking of your ceremony, onto to the legal requirements, and right through to the day of your ceremony.

Within this guide you can find all the information on our celebratory services offered here in Tower Hamlets. Whether you decide to have your ceremony at St Georges Town Hall, at one of our approved venues, or in a place of worship, we will be delighted to assist you. Our ceremonies are unique and tailored to our couple’s needs, as we want you to have your ceremony, your way; some choose to keep it very small and have just two witnesses, whilst others wish to be surrounded by family and friends.



Cho�ing and b�king your Venue

You must first decide where and when you wish to get married or have a civil partnership. For ceremonies in England and Wales you have the choice of register offices, licensed approved premises, and places of religious worship or you may decide that you wish to be married abroad. You may choose to have your marriage or civil partnership celebration at any Register Office or Licensed Approved Premises in England and Wales. Please note for any ceremony you will need to plan with the venue in advance to ensure that the date you would like is available. You may wish to have a religious ceremony in a Church of England or Church of Wales, you should speak to the vicar about arrangements. For religious ceremonies of any other denomination please speak to the appropriate person at your religious building. This could be a priest, Iman, Minister, Rabbi, or Authorised person to discuss your requirements before contacting your local register office to complete legal preliminaries. For ceremonies abroad please contact the register office via email with your contact details, and we will advise you further.



Notices of Marriage and Civil Partnerships


This is a legal requirement which must be completed at least 29 days prior to the ceremony. In certain cases, depending on your immigration status, this may be extended to 71 days. Therefore, we advise that wherever possible you give notice at least three - six months prior to your ceremony. You can only give notice after you’ve finalised your date and location. A notice of marriage is valid only for the venue named on the notice. While it may be possible to alter the date of your marriage, a change of location would require a fresh notice and fee. Please make sure that you have selected and checked availability for both the venue for your ceremony and registrars before placing your notices of marriage.

Sometimes people may get confused between marriage and civil partnership, thinking that civil partnership is the same as a civil marriage. Please ensure you know the difference between a marriage and civil partnership before making a booking.

Please check by visiting the government website: marriage-and-civil-partnership-in-england-and-wales Both parties must make an appointment at the register office to give their legal notice of intention to marry or intention to enter a civil partnership. Please refer to our website for the requirements.


Our ceremony suites


Our ceremony suites are housed within the recently renovated St Georges Town Hall, a listed building dating back to 1860. The ceremony suites at St Georges Town Hall vary in size and style. As you enter our building you will see centre stage is a beautiful staircase for those must have photographs. The Tower Suite The Tower Suite is the largest of the three rooms set in the historic St Georges Town Hall. It is located on the first floor, an elegant room decorated in a traditional style; the room has dark wooden panelling and

features a flower arch and adorned walls. The room can accommodate 200 guests, and there is a large aisle for couples to make their grand entrance. The Tower Suite also has a dressing room for couples wishing to make those final finishing touches before they make their grand entrance.






The Hamlet Suite The Hamlet Suite is a smaller, more contemporary ceremony room, also located on the first floor. It accommodates 20 guests and can be made smaller for more intimate ceremonies accommodating up to 10 guests. It has a fun element to it, with a neon light sign confirming your Happily Ever After. Behind the signing table there is a backdrop flower picture frame for more of those celebratory photographs.

Cho�ing the type of ceremony


It would be our privilege to manage and attend your ceremony and we want to ensure that your ceremony is tailored to your needs. We would be delighted to be part of your celebrations and will guide you through your choice of ceremony. Most importantly, we want you to have a fabulous ceremony in Tower Hamlets and create lifelong memories; ones that you will recall in years to come with family and friends, with unique little details that made your ceremony so special and personal to you as a couple. There are four types of ceremonies here in Tower Hamlets, the enhanced ceremony, the simple ceremony, the registration only ceremony, and the register office ceremony.




The Enhanced Ceremony Choosing the enhanced ceremony option is a wonderful way to personalise your ceremony. You may wish to include a grand entrance; you will need to decide who will accompany you. You could walk in together or with your parents, some couples have a whole entourage, bridesmaids, grooms’ men and page boys, the choice is yours. There may be special pieces of music that are important to you and remind you of key events as a couple. You can choose pieces of music to accompany you down the aisle, signing the legal paperwork, and at the close of ceremony. You may have friends or family that are musically talented, you could have a live singer or musicians playing. Readings are also a wonderful way to further enhance your ceremony, and to involve family and friends in the celebrations. You may have a favourite poem or a passage of prose, you would like to include, or the reader may decide to write some words. Will you exchange rings or gifts, who will present the rings/ gifts? At this point in the ceremony, you will say your vows, or make promises to one another. You could write your own vows or have the enhanced ceremony option. Please note readings and music cannot contain religious content, our ceremonies team will be happy to advise you further.

Simple ceremony Some couples opt for the simple ceremony, which is still a short ceremony however you have the option to exchange rings and include music chosen by us. Our most popular option, it allows you to celebrate your way without the pressure of organising a larger celebration, so you can focus on you. Registration only ceremony There is also a registration only ceremony, this is often a preferred choice wherein the couple are having a blessing later. Please note this is a very short ceremony with the legal words only, there is no music, no vows, and no readings. Register office ceremony The register office ceremony is our most basic option, the ceremony is very short with the legal words only and no embellishments. The register office room has limited availability, and two witnesses only can attend. Please refer to our website to view all ceremony options, here you will find more detailed information, including the number of guests that can attend.

“We really appreciated the way you’ve handled the ceremony and the occasional crying and particularly how you’ve always been up for a laugh, while at the same time maintaining the order and the solemnity due in such an occasion. Also, not sure if the li�le speech you did about what a civil partnership should mean for the parties was part of a standard protocol or if you made it up, but it was beautiful.”
