Converting a civil partnership to a marriage

1 May 2018

Since the introduction of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013, it is now possible to convert an existing Civil Partnership that has been registered, according to the law of England and Wales, into a marriage.

The conversion itself is a simple legal process but you can include a celebratory ceremony if you choose.  Your conversion ceremony can take place at any of our main registration offices.  The celebratory ceremony can be held at one of our approved venues.
