North Lincolnshire Council

Ceremony rooms at the Civic Centre

Our delightful wedding and civil partnership venue is a calm oasis in today’s busy life.

The registration offices and two ceremony rooms are situated on the first floor of the Civic Centre on Ashby Road, Scunthorpe. The Council Chamber, on the ground floor, is also licensed for ceremonies.

We offer people a wide choice for civil ceremonies, with the magnificent gardens of Central Park as a stunning backdrop for your photographs. Scunthorpe Lions donated a beautiful arbour for wedding couples to use for photographs.

We have four ceremony rooms:

  • North Lincolnshire Register Office has a capacity of four people (couple plus two witnesses). This room is ideal for couples who wish to have a quick and simple ceremony, for example those getting married abroad who wish to complete the legal preliminaries in the UK first.
  • The Garden Room has a capacity of 20 people. This air-conditioned room is tastefully decorated in shades of duck egg blue, cream and stone and is ideal for smaller groups.
  • You can also hold your ceremony in the Civic Suite. This beautiful, air-conditioned room has a capacity of 60 people. This room follows the duck egg blue, stone and aqua colour theme and provides a stylish, contemporary setting for your special day.
  • For those who wish to invite a larger number of guests, we offer the unusual surroundings of the Council Chamber. The Chamber has ground floor seating and a balcony. This is available on Saturdays only and has a capacity of 120.

All the ceremony rooms have the facility to play your personal choice of music in either CD format, USB or by phone connected by AUX cable or Bluetooth.

You can view our Image Gallery of the ceremony rooms here.

The downstairs reception area acts as a meeting area for guests and family to meet prior to the ceremony.

The offices have lift access and the ceremony rooms have hearing loop systems ensuring the service is fully accessible to disabled visitors.

There are ample public car parking areas outside the Civic Centre, at The Pods and also in Central Park. There are designated disabled car parking spaces at the main entrance to the building.

We hold ceremonies in the Register Office on the first Wednesday of every month between 9am and 12pm. Ceremonies in the Garden Room or Civic Suite are available Monday to Saturday between 10am and 4pm. Ceremonies in the Council Chamber are held on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.

The Register Office is easily served by public transport and quite close to Scunthorpe town centre with its many amenities.
