Civil Ceremonies and Weddings at York Register Office

York Register Office

York's impressive register office is housed in an elegant grade II listed Georgian building. Set only a few hundred yards from the Gothic splendour of York Minster and city centre, it offers a superb setting for your special day.


Temporary relocation of York Register Office

Please note that due to refurbishment, York Register Office will be temporarily located at West Offices, between Sunday 7 January and Friday 9 March 2018. During this time:

Register office weddings will be conducted at West Offices
Bootham Suite ceremonies will be conducted at either the Mansion House or Bedern Hall (depending on the date)

Contact information for York Register Office will not change during the relocation.

When choosing a register office ceremony, the City of York Registration Service is thought to offer the best register office venue in the North of England - if not the whole country. Friendly, experienced staff ensure that couples are given all the help they need for a most memorable day.

The Bootham Suite provides a purpose-built setting which has been refurbished in a style sympathetic to the building's Georgian architecture. Couples have the choice of two room settings - either the intimate and less formal registrar's office which accommodates up to eight people or, for larger parties, a spacious reception room that seats 50 people comfortably with additional standing room. This can also be adapted to suit smaller parties and is entirely accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Tastefully decorated, the larger room combines classic style and furniture with modern technology. Features include a York stone floor with traditional red carpeted aisle and a glass roof and French windows opening out onto landscaped gardens providing the perfect backdrop for photographs.Most importantly, they can tailor your day to suit your needs.

Walk down the aisle to music of your choice, customise your ceremony with poems and readings or enrich the occasion by composing your own vows. Involve those most dear to you by having them give away the bride or bring forward the rings. They will happily personalise the format and content of the ceremony to suit you as long as any changes comply with the legal restrictions which do not allow any religious reference.
