2. Choose and provisionally book your venue

From country houses to nature reserves, intimate Register Office ceremonies to seaside locations, with over 126 approved venues and six Register Offices across the county we can offer you the perfect venue for your big day .

And if you prefer to get married at home or at a venue that is currently not licensed, we can cater for this, too.

Please make a provisional booking with your chosen venue, then contact us to check our ceremony teams are available on the day.

3. Book your ceremony

Please call the Register Office assigned to your venue to book your ceremony. Your chosen venue can advise you which office to call. We can only arrange ceremonies by phone.

At the time of booking we'll ask for the date and time of your ceremony, the venue and your contact details. We also take a 50% non-refundable deposit of the ceremony fee to secure your booking.

We are also going to advise you regarding the legal preliminaries, Notice of Marriage or Notice of Civil Partnership. And of course our experienced team members can answer any further questions you may have.
