Registration and Celebratory Service
Following the most recent guidance from the Government, East Riding Registration Service will not be able to attend ceremonies until further notice.
Some exceptions will apply, such as an urgent marriage/civil partnership where one of the couple is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or is to undergo debilitating treatment or life-saving surgery. In these circumstances, medical evidence from a GP will be required.
The service will be working through bookings in date order and would ask that all couples bear with us as we progress with this.
All existing email enquiries will be responded to as soon as possible although ceremony bookings are being taken via email:
The service appreciates the difficult situation faced by couples and venues, locally and nationally during these uncertain times and are doing their best to be as flexible as possible.
We would like to thank you for your understanding.
Following the announcement by the Government for a third lockdown guidelines mean that no civil marriages or civil partnerships can take place at this time.
Exceptions can be made for an urgent marriage where one of the couple is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or is to undergo debilitating or life-changing surgery. Medical evidence will be required.
Once we are out of this present lockdown and become aware of any new Government guidance on the number of people able to attend ceremonies or any changes to the COVID-19 safety rules we will contact imminent couples to inform them of these important facts.
In the meantime, registration officers will still be working with couples who have the opportunity to rearrange, stay with their original date or move their booking to a new date.
It is important that couples check their email address they have supplied to us in regards to their bookings and check their spam cache regularly so they can access any information as soon as possible.
The email address for East Riding Registration Services is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are still able to take certain notices of marriage and couples will be able to contact the office on (01482) 393600 to make appointments to give notice for marriage and civil partnerships.
We do ask for couples’ patience and understanding again as we cope with a changing priority for so many of them.
