Where to give Notice
Notices must be given at a Register Office in the county you live in, even if you're getting married in a different county. It doesn't have to be your nearest office, you can attend any Register Office. Suffolk residents can book their appointment via the button below.
When to give Notice
Notices have to be given a minimum of 29 days prior to your ceremony, otherwise your wedding won't go ahead. Ideally aim to give Notice around 3 months prior to your wedding.
Who needs to attend
Both you and your partner have to give Notice, ideally together at the same appointment. If your partner doesn't attend the same appointment, they have to give Notice separately another day. Notice appointments are in person.
The fee for Notice of marriage or Civil Partnership is £42 per person, £84 per couple. Additional fees may apply.
