Marriage and civil partnerships

COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) information

Update 14 June 2021

Maximum number of ceremony attendees in the Register Office’s Wrekin Suite to remain at 30.

Following the recent update in COVID-19 restrictions from Government from 21 June 2021, there will no longer be a maximum number cap for attendees set out in law. Instead, the number of attendees at weddings, civil partnerships and receptions will be determined by how many people the venue or space can safely accommodate with social distancing measures in place. This will be based on the COVID-19 risk assessment of the venue or outdoor space, and the measures put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19.

For ceremonies taking place in the Wrekin Suite at Telford & Wrekin Register Office the maximum number of people allowed to attend remains at 30, to allow for safe social distancing to take place. This includes the couple, witnesses, all guests, and children of any age. It does not include anyone who is working, such as the registrars, or a photographer.

Please email should you have any further queries and staff will endeavour to respond back within 5 working days. As soon as we receive further guidance, we will post an update on our COVID-19 page.
