Book a registrar

Check whether a registrar is available for your marriage, civil partnership, renewal of vows or naming ceremony.

If you would like to book a registrar for 2021 or beyond please use this form or call us. We will happily take your booking.

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are not taking any marriage or civil partnership bookings for 2020 until restrictions are lifted and we are able to take notices of intent - we do not know when this will be.

We are sorry for any upset this may cause, but hope you understand the importance of protecting everyone’s wellbeing.

Once you have chosen your venue and provisionally booked it, you need to check if an appropriate registrar is available to conduct the ceremony.

Complete our online ceremony enquiry form and we will contact you to confirm the booking and ask for payment.

We recommend booking your ceremony as soon as you can in order to secure the date and time you want. You are able to book as far in advance as you would like. Dates cannot be reserved as payment is required in full at the time of booking.

Ceremony enquiry form

Alternatively, you can phone: 01243 642122.

You can find our terms and conditions of ceremony bookings and the cost of booking a registrar on our ceremony fees page.

Once you have booked your venue and registrar you need to book an appointment to give notice.

It is a legal requirement that both you and your partner give notice of the marriage at your local register office.
