How to book your wedding

A step-by-step guide to getting married.

Your Suffolk wedding guide from start to finish

Agree on a date
This could be an anniversary or a meaningful date to both of you. If you don't have a set date in mind, think about the season you would like to have your wedding instead.
Find your venue
This could be one of our six Register Offices across Suffolk, an approved venue or even at your home! View your venue if possible, and when you've found 'the one', book a provisional date.
Book your wedding with us
Contact us as soon as possible after your provisional booking to ensure our celebrants are available on your chosen date and time to conduct your wedding.
Book your team of suppliers
This could range from bridal wear, floristry, music, catering to hair and makeup. Some approved venues may be able to give you recommendations.
Give notice of marriage
You will need to do this at a Register Office at least 29 days before your wedding.
Meet your assigned celebrant and discuss your ideas
If you are getting married at an approved venue, at home or at an unlicensed venue or if you have an Enhanced Register Office ceremony, we like to offer you a free online planning meeting. Your celebrant will contact you to arrange a meeting.
