Book a ceremony

Your booking is subject to our terms and conditions and cancellation policy.

Your ceremony booking

Your marriage or civil partnership ceremony booking is provisional until such time as you have given your notices and completed the legal preliminaries.

If you have booked The Mayor’s Parlour or The Grand Chamber online you should await confirmation from us that the room is available on your chosen day, before finalising your arrangements. We will confirm within two working days of your online booking.

  • A non-refundable booking fee of £58.30 is required at the time of booking.
  • Any outstanding balance is due no later than 2 months before the ceremony. If your booking is within two months the full fee is payable at the time of booking.
  • Any changes to your booking will incur an administrative fee.
  • The Register Office reserves the right to cancel a ceremony if payment has not been received.
