While we are in lockdown or Tier 4, weddings and civil partnerships will not be able to take place at Islington Town Hall or our venues.
At this point we do not know when lockdown or Tier 4 measures will be lifted. The Health Protection Regulations (2020) is enforceable until 31 March 2021, but lockdown could also be extended past this date.
The government have stated that 'weddings and civil partnership ceremonies should not take place except in exceptional circumstances, for example where one of those getting married is seriously ill and not expected to recover ('deathbed wedding') or due to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery.'
We will not be taking any new ceremony bookings while we reschedule couples whose ceremonies cannot take place as planned, so please check back to this page when London enters Tier 3 or lower.
We will not be open for notices of marriage or civil partnership until at least the end of February. Please check back to this page at that point for an update to this information.
Marriage and civil partnership law requires an in-person, face-to-face interview with a registrar to give notice, and so notice cannot be given by proxy, in writing, by video call, online or by any other method.
