Register a building as an approved venue

As a result of the current COVID-19 'lockdown restrictions', venue licenses will remain as presently held, however at their expiry, a four year licence will be provided at the cost of the three year licence.

Hotels and venues can be licensed for a three year period within the Borough of Telford & Wrekin, through the Council Registration team, to hold 'secular' weddings, Civil Partnerships, baby naming and renewal of vows ceremonies.

To gain approval, the proprietor or trustee of the venue should apply to us for permission.

You should read through the guidance notes carefully before submitting your application.

The approval will be valid for 3 years.

You can apply to renew your licence if it expires within a calendar year.
