Normal services will resume on Wednesday 2 January 2019.


You will need to book the Registrars from Blackpool Registration Service to officiate at your wedding, civil partnership, naming or renewal of vows ceremony if you are holding your ceremony at any of the following venues:

  • The Wedding Chapel (formerly Festival House)
  • Blackpool Town Hall
  • An approved venue in Blackpool
  • A non-conformist religious building such as Roman Catholic, Methodist, United Reformed but not Church of England, where the church does not have an approved person


The fee is £40 to provisionally book your chosen venue, date and time. The fee is non-refundable and is a separate fee to those you will pay for the Registrars to attend your ceremony. View our current fees for Marriage and Civil Partnership and Naming and Renewal of Vows fees. 

When to make the booking

From the 2nd January 2019, you can make a booking up to two years before the date of your ceremony, for example, if you wish to marry on 22 May 2021, you can provisionally book your ceremony with us on 22 May 2019.


You may also be able to book your chosen approved venue or religious building more than a year in advance of your ceremony date.
