The notice period for submitting your Marriage Notice increased on 1 March 2015 to a minimum of 29 days, this is due to The Immigration Act 2014. As soon as notice has been entered, you will get written confirmation of your booking assuring you of our attendance at your ceremony. We checked the registrar was offered before booking the venue, then produced a provisional booking of the registrar. The gear should be battery operated, as neither the nearby authority nor the Registrar undertake to offer any power source or accept responsibility for any harm or loss to any gear while on the premises.
Once you have selected your venue, book your registrar as quickly as doable, even if it is a few years in advance of your ceremony. Prior to the ceremony you will be asked to full a questionnaire and return it to us so that the Registrar performing the ceremony has all of the required data. Wedding or civil partnership registrations are held mid week Monday to Wednesday in our Northampton, Wellingborough and Kettering offices subject to availability.
You can only give notice at a register office if you have lived in the registration district for at least the previous 7 days and have proof of venue booking at least 28 days prior to your ceremony. Contact the registrar in the district where your wedding will take location and ask them. When you arrive prior to the ceremony, you will be greeted by the Registrar for a brief meeting.
Our provisional booking service permits you to reserve a time slot for the Superintendent Registrar and Registrar to conduct your ceremony, up to two years in advance.
