The Welsh Parliament has published its own recovery document https://gov.wales/unlocking-our-society-and-economy-continuing-conversation.
This document uses a traffic light system. Within the “relaxing and special occasions” category, it states that “weddings and other events with limited capacity and physical distancing” are in the amber section.
We do not know when we will move into the amber section and when we do, we do not know:
- The Locations where ceremonies will be permitted
- How many guests this will include
- If there will be any other restrictions or conditions
- When we will be able to take legal Notices of Marriage
We are not as yet able to provide advice on any of these aspects until we receive further information from The Welsh Government. We sincerely apologise for the uncertainty and we will update our webpage as soon as we have further information.

The rooms which are used in the register Office are not designated as marriage venues for the duration of the ceremony.
You can discuss renewing your marriage vows ceremony by contacting Blaenau Gwent Register Office. The Register Office is at Bedwellty House. Find location, parking details and register office opening times.
