A Civil Partnership is a legal relationship which can be registered by two people who aren't related to each other.
Civil partnerships are available to both same-sex couples and opposite-sex couples.
Registering a civil partnership will give your relationship legal recognition. This will give you added legal rights, as well as responsibilities.
It is important to note that in order for a Celebrant led Civil Partnership to be legal, then you must also arrange to meet with a Registrar on a separate occasion. This can simply be the couple and with their two witnesses.
