The Marriage Hall is the designated location by law to perform marriages; however they can also be performed at other locations such as at the beach a hotel or restaurant.

Head of the Civil Registry Department Leona Romeo-Marlin said that she would like to especially thank Rosemary Lejuez for her wonderful work in coordinating the renovation of the hall.

Marriages have been performed at the hall located at Soualiga Road #6 for more than 20-years. The remodelled hall can accommodate up to 24 persons, with another six to eight standing in the back of the hall.

Of the 189 marriages performed in 2009, 96 took place in the marriage hall. In 2010, 218 marriages were performed of which 115 took place in the marriage hall.

The renovations were carried out in March and April and entailed changing the carpet, all chairs were recovered, retiling of the floor, repainting, and improved lighting with a chandelier.

The windows have been tinted and additional accessories have been added throughout the hall to give it that professional and inviting look.
