Arrange a marriage or civil partnership

Notice of marriage/civil partnership fee

The notice of marriage and civil partnership fee of £35 per person is payable to the Superintendent Registrar at the register office in the district in which you reside.

This is a non-refundable statutory fee and will be payable at the time the notice appointment is made.

If you gave notice of marriage or civil partnership and your ceremony has been re-arranged at the same venue to a date outside the validity period of your notice due to COVID-19, you will not be required to pay the statutory fee again.

If you gave a notice of marriage or civil partnership and this has been re-arranged to a new date at a different venue to originally planned, you will be required to pay the statutory notice fees again for the new venue. The only exception to this is where a change in venue has been necessitated by the original venue ceasing trading as a result of COVID-19.

You will be asked to remove at the appropriate point in the appointment to verify your identity. See the guidance on face coverings here
