Apply for a wedding or civil partnership venue licence

Any venue used for the carrying out of civil marriages and the registration of civil partnerships must be approved by Lambeth Council.

Reviewing applications

Approval will be granted if the venue satisfies the requirements and after considering any objections received and any other issues raised during the application process.

Conditions are usually imposed on approval. These will include a number of standard conditions, as well as any other conditions necessary to ensure that the premises remain suitable.

Approvals are valid for three years, and an application to renew an approval can be made up to 12 months before it expires.
