Customer information – Coronavirus update
Until further notice you will not be able to book appointments to give notice of marriage or civil partnerships. We have also suspended provisional ceremony bookings and final ceremony payments at this time, following government advice.
Giving notice of marriage or civil partnership
The following information relates to marriages or civil partnerships in England and Wales providing both parties:
- are over the age of 18
- are British, EU or Swiss nationals
- usually reside in England or Wales
If either party is a national from a country outside of the EU you will need to read the additional information for non EU nationals.
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.
