Renfrewshire Council

Coronavirus restrictions and civil partnerships

We are now able to hold civil partnership ceremonies again at the Marriage Suite in Renfrewshire House, Cotton Street, Paisley. Johnstone and Renfrew Town Hall are still closed.

Wedding ceremonies and civil partnership registrations can take place with a maximum capacity of 5 people (including the couple, the witnesses and the person conducting the ceremony, 6 if an interpreter is required), with social distancing in place.  

Face coverings must be worn by those attending a wedding or civil partnership, except for the couple and the person conducting the ceremony.

Travel to a wedding or civil partnership ceremony is exempt from Scottish Government travel restrictions.


Register a civil partnership

To book a civil partnership registration in Renfrewshire, call our Customer Contact Centre on 0300 300 0310. 

One of our customer service advisers will then take you through the process of booking a civil partnership registration.

To confirm your booking, you will be asked to pay a non-refundable deposit. You can book up to one year in advance.

The civil partnership notice forms, documents, and fees must be returned no earlier than 3 months before the civil partnership registration and no later than 29 days before the civil partnership registration.

An appointment will be made for you to come the Customer Service centre and hand over the necessary forms, documents and fees.
