Book your ceremony at Sandwell Register Office

You can book your wedding or civil partnership ceremony at Sandwell Register Office any day of the week (except for Christmas Day and Good Friday).

Room hire costs

We have two rooms available for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies.

The Register Office ceremony room costs £49 to hire Monday to Friday or Saturday morning. Seating capacity including the happy couple is 16 people.

The Sandwell Suite holds up to 85 guests:

  • Monday to Thursday - £254
  • Fridays, weekends and Bank Holidays - £354.

Other venues

You can also get married at other venues in Sandwell, including hotels and West Bromwich Albion Football Club.

Giving notice

All couples getting married at the Register Office, and at all venues other than a Church of England church, must give Notice of Marriage.

Booking your ceremony

If you have a date in mind for holding your wedding or civil partnership at Sandwell Register Office, you can book it up to two years in advance.

A holding fee of £50 is payable when you book your ceremony - this is a separate fee and does not form part of a deposit. It is also non-refundable.

How to pay

For the register office ceremony room, the hire fee of £49 is payable in advance, when you either give notice, or provisionally book your ceremony.

For the Sandwell Suite, the room hire fee must be paid at least four weeks before your ceremony.

Payments can be made by card (in person or over the phone) cash or cheque.

Cancellation fee

Please note, once fees have been paid in full, if you wish to cancel your ceremony without re-booking we will only refund 50% of the room hire cost.

If you cancel within three weeks of the ceremony date then no refund will be payable.
