Weddings and Civil Ceremonies


Steeped in history, the Palace of Westminster provides a unique setting for a wedding celebration. The House of Commons has two venues licensed for Civil Marriages and Civil Partnerships.

Celebrate with up to 150 guests in the grandeur of the Members' Dining Room overlooking the River Thames, or with up to 60 guests in the beautiful oak panelled Jubilee Room. Both venues are licensed with Westminster Council for civil ceremonies.

There is a charge of £2,000 + VAT for the Members' Dining Room and £1,000 + VAT for the Jubilee Room. Ceremonies can take place between 10:30 and 16:30 on Saturdays with the latest booking being 16:00. Both venues are wheelchair accessible.

Contact Westminster Register Office on 020 7641 7500 once a provisional booking for your ceremony has been made in order to check their availability.

The Register Office accepts provisional bookings and will also allow you to give formal notice of your ceremony up to 12 months before the day.
