Convert a civil partnership into a marriage
Following the introduction of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act, you can now convert your civil partnership into a marriage.
A simple conversion can take place at any of our main registration offices, or you can have a celebration and a ceremony at one of our approved venues on the Celebrate in Essex site.
You’ll need to book an appointment at the register office to sign a conversion into marriage declaration.
You’ll need to bring:
- your original civil partnership certificate
- proof of identity
- £11 for a marriage certificate
- £45 to convert your civil partnership
- £27 for an appointment, if you have a ceremony
