Opposite sex civil partnership in Camden

The introduction of opposite sex civil partnerships is an historic occasion, and Camden Council’s Registrar Service were honoured to undertake ceremonies for eight couples on Tuesday 31 December.

The Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Act, which received Royal Assent on 26 March 2019, contains provisions for regulations to be made to extend eligibility for forming a Civil Partnership to opposite sex couples.

We are proud of Camden’s reputation of being an inclusive borough that is open to all and welcome the opportunity to undertake civil partnerships for opposite sex couples. Our registration team is delighted to offer this service and we are advising all interested couples to contact Camden’s register office.
Councillor Richard Olszewski, Cabinet Member for Finance & Transformation
