Coronavirus restrictions and civil partnerships

Couples do not need to wear face coverings during civil partnership ceremonies.

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.

Civil partnership fees

We have a range of facilities available in Renfrewshire for your civil partnership registration or ceremony. The fees vary, with a venue to suit every need and budget. All our premises are smoke free.
