Why choose John Lewis Wedding Insurance?

John Lewis Wedding Insurance: providing protection for civil partnership ceremonies and receptions.

Ever since the Civil Partnership Act came into being in 2004 same-sex couples have been able to formalise their relationships in the UK. Celebrating a civil partnership involves the same level of expense and emotional investment as a wedding. As such, it needs the same level of protection, which is where John Lewis Wedding Insurance can help.

Why choose John Lewis Wedding Insurance for your civil partnership?


The special details can all be covered including your wedding cake, wedding flowers, wedding rings and whatever formal attire you choose to wear for your civil partnership.


If the couple or member of the close family or wedding party fall ill and the civil partnership ceremony needs to be cancelled or rearranged, we can cover the costs if it is inappropriate to continue the ceremony and it is not due to a pre-existing medical condition.


We'll cover civil partnership ceremonies and receptions in the UK and if optional Overseas Wedding cover is selected, abroad too.


If a supplier goes bust or fails to turn up, we'll reimburse you for irrecoverable deposits and additional cost in arranging alternative equivalent suppliers.


Whatever size reception you plan to celebrate your civil partnership with, our Wedding Insurance may be able to cover it. We provide six levels of cover ranging from £10,000 to £100,000. 

Did you know?

If you decide to celebrate your civil partnership with a ceremony or reception abroad, John Lewis Wedding Insurance can cover that too. Please ask us for more details of our Overseas Wedding Cover option.
