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 was re-arranged at the same venue to a date outside the validity period of your notice due to cancellation during the national lockdown March – June 2020 or second national lockdown 5th November – 2nd December 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, 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.

Please note, the registration service will only be making notice of marriage or civil partnership bookings for those ceremonies intended to be taking place within the next three months.

If your ceremony has been affected by the lockdown effective from 5th January 2021 the Registration Team will contact you directly to reschedule this and any subsequent notice appointment you may have booked.

If you are getting married in a district outside of Rotherham but have a notice appointment booked with us, please use the contact form below to discuss rescheduling this if necessary.
