The Civil Partnership Act 2004 allows same-sex couples to make a formal, legal commitment to each other by forming a Civil Partnership.
Essex County Council certified and approved Stock Brook Country Club to be used as a venue for the solemnization of Civil Marriages under the Marriage Act 1994, Marriages (Approved Premises) Regulations 1995 on 1st October 1999. At each marriage ceremony a Superintendent Registrar and Registrar must be in attendance. The civil partnership couple must each give Notice of their intended civil partnership in the Registration District in which they live; notice cannot be given more than one year in advance or later than 15 days before the date of the civil partnership. In addition, you are advised that civil partnership ceremonies must contain no religious content. Any readings, words or performance prior to or during any part of the ceremony must be secular and require approval in advance from the Superintendent Registrar at Brentwood Register Office.
Stock Brook Country Club also offers commitment ceremonies for couples of any agenda wishing to celebrate their commitment to each other without getting married or registering for a civil partnership. Please call or contact us here for more details.
