Who can enter into a civil partnership?

Any couple can choose between a traditional marriage and a civil partnership. A civil partnership gives a couple similar legal rights to a married couple.

People decide to enter into a civil partnership instead of getting married for various reasons. Some people have already been married and don’t wish to marry again. This can be for personal or religious reasons. Some people object to marriage for patriarchal reasons. Whereas marriages are based around vows, couples in a civil partnership need to sign a civil partnership document.

At The George Hotel, we have two elegant licensed rooms that can be used for your civil ceremony. As you can hold both your ceremony and reception at our hotel, you don’t need to worry about getting from one venue to another. Everything can be carried out right here.
