In order to protect all parties, guests and staff, ceremonies at St George’s Hall during COVID-19 restrictions have been designed to comply with government guidelines.
England has now been placed into a national lockdown, effective from Tuesday 5 January 2021. The rules state that weddings and civil partnership ceremonies should only take place in exceptional circumstances with up to six people present (for example, an urgent marriage where one of those getting married is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or is to undergo debilitating treatment or life-changing surgery). If these circumstances apply to you, please contact Liverpool Register Office’s ceremonies team on 0151 233 3004 or [email protected] to discuss.
If your marriage or civil partnership is due to go ahead during the latest national lockdown and exceptional circumstances do not apply, please contact the ceremonies team using the above details to discuss rearranging your ceremony to an alternative date in the future.

*Please note, the above information is for ceremonies booked directly through Liverpool Register Office. If you have booked a ceremony/wedding through the Liverpool City Halls wedding team, then you can find all of the latest info regarding cancellations and date changes here.
Finally, we’d like to take a moment to empathise with the situation of all couples who have been frustrated in their attempts to get hitched since the pandemic began. We really feel your struggle and, as has always been the case since the first lockdown, we will keep you updated with any changes as and when the government makes them. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
If you are hoping to plan your wedding once the restrictions are lifted and normal service resumes, see what we usually have to offer below.
