Marriages, civil partnerships and celebratory services

How much will it cost?

The fee for entering a notice of marriage or civil partnership is £35 for each person. We take the fee at the time of your appointment.

The marriage fee at a registration service ceremony room depends on:

  • the maximum capacity of the room
  • the day of the week you choose

If you decide to marry in an approved venue such as a hotel, then you must then check with the superintendent registrar that registration officers will be available on that day and at that time.

  • Saturday - £509 * for marriages
