Marriages and Civil Partnerships at the Swansea Bay Ceremony Rooms, Civic Centre

The Civic Centre is located on the seafront promenade with stunning views over the spectacular Swansea Bay.

Outside the marriage rooms we have a garden with a courtyard and wedding arbour and our patio is on lawns overlooking the beach. This offers an excellent backdrop for your photographs after your ceremony.

We have two attractive ceremony rooms at the Civic Centre. The larger room can accommodate up to 70 people and the smaller room up to 40 people. There is also a CD music system in each room. You are welcome to bring your own choice of music to personalise your ceremony. 

A civil marriage/civil partnership ceremony cannot have any religious content. You can add individual touches such as non-religious music and readings to your ceremony.

We also have a statutory Register Office for those couples who want to complete the legal elements of a marriage/civil partnership ceremony only. This is a small room where couples are accompanied by two witnesses only.

Booking your ceremony

These rooms are available from Monday to Friday in the morning and afternoon and Saturday mornings. The statutory Register Office is available from Monday to Thursday only. Provisional bookings can be taken up to two years before your ceremony by emailing registrars@swansea.gov.uk.

Please note that your booking stays provisional until you have given your notice of marriage or civil partnership within the statutory timescales.
