Whether you are planning an small intimate family affair or a grand society event, Ox Pasture Hall Hotel is the perfect setting for your civil partnership wedding ceremony.

Same-sex marriage is legal in the United Kingdom. The legislation to allow same-sex marriage in England and Wales was passed by the Parliament of the United Kingdom in July 2013 and came into force on 13 March 2014, and the first same-sex marriages took place on 29 March 2014.

The law also allows for those couples in a civil partnership the option to convert this to a marriage if they chose. This option came into effect on 10 December 2014. There are two options available to couples - the "standard (one stage) procedure" and the "two stage" procedure. Information is available from the Scarborough and North Yorkshire County Council Registrars.
