Coronavirus Advice

Update 14/05/20

There’s still a lot of confusion surrounding ceremonies. Here’s a brief summary of the current position. Please follow the link to our blog post for more in depth advice, or follow us on Facebook for regular news.

  • We can’t currently hold any ceremonies at all, extending to the end of May at least.
  • Our diary is closed to all new bookings and postponements of future ceremonies. We are working on rebooking all ceremonies missed during the lockdown, and are contacting couples directly by phone to do this.
  • The government have suggested small ceremonies may be allowed at some point from June 1st, but this is not guaranteed and depends on whether the virus is being contained.
  • We can’t currently take Notice of Marriage appointments. Once we can offer this service, priority will be given to couples with imminent ceremonies.
  • Our payment terms have been extended, so there is no need to get in touch to pay for your ceremony at this time.


If you would prefer to cancel your ceremony for now and receive a refund, please email us using the subject header “Ceremony Cancellation Request – COVID19”. For the time being, these will be the only ceremony-related queries that we will be responding to as our inbox is not being fully monitored. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. 

 
We will continue to update the information on Facebook and our website as we receive new guidance.
Please – be patient, stay safe, stay healthy, and we will be here to help you celebrate as soon as we can.

In this section you’ll find our step by step guide to giving notice that will help you through the legal preliminaries, and links to book an appointment online at your local registration office. We’ve put together a comprehensive guide to help you plan your wedding or partnership, from what music and readings you can use, to whether you can get married in a garden or include your children in the ceremony.

You’ll also find downloadable guidance for basic and full ceremonies, along with the pre-ceremony check forms for you to let us know what details to include on the day. If you can’t find the answer to your question, just get in touch with the team and we can add it to our guide.
