Guys and Girls. Looking for some advice on the best approach for my upcomign Civil Partnership. After 14 years myself and my partner are biting the bullet and going to have a Civil Partnership this year.
We are hoping to have it on a Friday 3rd August as it is our 15 year anniversary on that day and we went to our local HSE office to find out what the procedure was. Anyway they only preform the ceremony in that office on a Wednesday. They also told us that they could preform the ceremony in a hotel on Friday 10th August but had no availability on Friday 3rd August.
The hotel we were looking at does not have availability on Aug 10th. So thinking outside the box we were looking at the idea of having a small ceremony in the HSE Office on the Wednesday (room only holds 14 people) and then having a blessing on Friday 3rd August (our anniversary) in a marquee in our back garden. We are lucky that by living in the country we have the space for a large marquee and we could have a party and not be disturbing the neighbours.
So this is where you guys come in. Do you know of anybody that preforms blessings or is there a website where I can see if somebody was available?
We still MIGHT have the ceremony in a hotel if the marquee idea becomes too expensive but either way we are probably going to have to go down the route of doing the legal stuff in the HSE office and then have somebody do the blessing on the 3rd Aug.
