- are British or Irish nationals
- usually reside in England or Wales
- have European Union settled status, pre-settled status, or have a pending EUSS application submitted before 1st June 2021, and can provide a relevant Share Code from the Home Office.

A notice of marriage is a signed legal statement that is displayed on the register office notice board for 28 days. You cannot get married or form a civil partnership without giving notice.
