How to do it


Select a venue

​Contact your chosen approved venue for their booking process. You are advised to make a provisional booking with the venue - but do not confirm that booking until you have booked a registrar.

Coronavirus update

Due to the increase in demand due to Covid-19, we are not currently taking telephone calls. We will be responding to general enquiries by email only.

For all general enquiries please contact us and we will try our best to respond within ten working days.

If you have submitted a ceremony enquiry form for a new booking we will contact you in order of receipt date to discuss availability and make your booking.

We are working with a large backlog of enquiries so please be patient and avoid completing multiple forms, as this only increases the backlog.

Make a ceremony enquiry


Confirm your registrar

The registration service ceremony team will contact you to confirm dates and times. If we are available, we will take a deposit over the phone and send you a contract.

Confirm your registrar


Review your contract details

​At time of booking a £100 deposit will be taken and payment of this forms acceptance to terms and conditions that will be sent to you via email once the booking has been completed. You should read the Terms and Conditions prior to making a booking to ensure acceptance when paying deposit.



Give your notices of marriage or civil partnership

​This is a legal requirement where you book an appointment to see a registrar with key documents of your identity. This must be done at least 1 month before a ceremony but can be up to 12 months ahead. There is a statutory fee to give notice of marriage. See our website if you are subject to immigration control.


Plan your wedding or civil partnership ceremony

Fill in the ceremony planning form by logging into your account that was created at time of booking. If you have forgotten the login details provided at the time of booking please contact the Registration Service.

This lets the registrars know your order of events for the ceremony. We recommend you submit the form 8 weeks before the ceremony to let us check there are no religious references in readings or music. About this time we will also contact you to take any outstanding balance of fees.

Do not be late!
Registrars have other ceremonies to attend and if you do not start on time they may have to postpone your ceremony.
