Marriages, civil partnerships and celebratory services

How much will it cost?

The fee for entering a notice of marriage or civil partnership is £35 - £47 for each person. We take the fee when you book your appointment.

Fees charged at any of our approved venues vary, depending on the day of the week you choose.

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


All fees includes the issue of one certificate.
