Register office weddings and civil partnerships

Liverpool Register Office is situated within St George's Hall, set in the heart of Liverpool's cultural quarter. It is widely regarded as one of the finest Neo-Classical buildings in the world and is a Grade I listed building.

Built in the early 1800s as a space for music festivals and the civil and crown courts, the hall has always been at the heart of community life in the city.


The venue

The Register Office has three beautifully decorated ceremony rooms at the hall. The wood panelled Grand Jury Room can accommodate up to 70 people and the Sefton Room, overlooking St John's Gardens,  up to 50 people.

If you would prefer a more intimate ceremony the Rose Room will seat up to 4 guests.
