Becoming an approved venue

To become an approved venue, you need to identify a specific room or rooms where weddings or civil partnerships will take place. This must be part of the building, not in the open air or under a marquee.

We must be happy that the premises are ‘seemly and dignified’ and that they will be regularly available for marriages or civil partnerships.

The premises must have all the necessary fire and safety provisions required by us.

More information can be found on the government web pages about approval of premises for civil marriage or civil partnership.

To apply, email registrars@iow.gov.uk.
