Civil Partnerships

COVID-19 Update

Civil Partnerships

  • Can take place indoors with six people in attendance (this includes the couple, two witnesses and the officiant).  The social distancing rules must be adhered to.
  • Can take place in the person’s home, in a hospital or at a registration office if one of the parties is terminally ill with six people in attendance (this includes the couple, two witnesses and the Registrar/ Humanist Celebrant).  The social distancing rules must be adhered to.
  • Can take place outdoors with thirty people in attendance (this includes the couple, two witnesses and the Registrar/ Humanist Celebrant) in attendance as long the location has been licensed by the council as an approved place.  Couples will need to contact the registration office in the district the civil partnership is to take place in order to discuss the suitability of the location for the civil partnership and the action that may be required.  The social distancing rules must be adhered to.

Currently, outdoor arrangements have been put in place for the registration offices in Enniskillen (Enniskillen Castle) and Omagh (The Grange Park), which are within the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council area.

Making Arrangements

If you are planning to have a registrar officiate at your ceremony it is important to plan ahead and make early arrangements to help ensure you secure the date and time of your choice.

Your day is special to you and important to us…………..

A Civil Ceremony, conducted by a Registrar from Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, provides you with the opportunity to tailor the Ceremony and make it personal to you, ensuring it’s a day to remember.  Family members and/or friends are encouraged to take an active part in your Ceremony which helps to create that personal touch. You may include live music, poems, readings, additional personal vows and remembrance candles, which will make the Ceremony unique to you both.

 

Our fees start from £163.00, please see the price list attached.
