Registry Services



Since the 29th April 2017 the Falkland Islands has recognised marriage and civil partnership for same sex couples.  The law was passed with overwhelming political and public support and the unions of same sex couples are now afforded the same status in law as unions between different sex couples. 

On the 20th November 2017 the first same sex marriage took place at Christina Bay, a beautiful location situated near Cape Pembroke and within sight of the famous Pembroke Lighthouse. 

 The Falkland Islands recognises that all couples should have equal rights.  For this reason both marriage and civil partnership are available to all couples, whether same sex or different sex allowing couples to be able to express their love and commitment in the manner that they choose.
