Civil ceremonies with Tower Hamlets Register Office


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.
