Approved premises licence
If you would like to apply for your venue to become an approved premises for weddings and other ceremonies, you can fill in an application form. Please make sure you read the The General Register Office approved premise regulations before you apply to make sure that your venue is suitable for a licence.
To help promote our beautiful Gloucestershire venues we have developed a dedicated ceremonies web site, Celebrate with us, and our licenced venues are invited to register their details. Registration is free and simple just follow the guidance on our help page.
'Celebrate with us' is aimed at helping people plan their ceremonies in Gloucestershire - it offers help and advice on ceremonies ranging from weddings & civil partnerships to naming and citizenship ceremonies. In addition, it will be a valuable resource for people looking for suitable ceremony venues.
Ceremonies can only be booked for venues who have been granted a licence to hold civil ceremonies.
