Towcester Registration Office

Book an appointment

Registration Offices are open from Monday to Friday by appointment only.


Marriage and civil partnerships

Enquire about a marriage ceremony or civil partnership ceremony.

We now offer a smaller, more intimate ceremony at the Forum in Towcester to accommodate the couple, 2 witnesses and 6 guests (total 10 - children to be included in this number, photographer/videographer not to be included).

This ceremony provides a more cost effective alternative to an enhanced ceremony. This is called a ‘Simple Ceremony’ – The Forum Towcester. A ‘Simple Ceremony’ takes place in the Civic Room and cannot take place in any other rooms within the building. 

This service is available Monday to Friday (not available Saturday, Sunday or bank holidays). Costs for this can be found on our ceremony fees page. 

Naming ceremony or renewal of vows

Enquire about a naming ceremony or renewal of vows.
