Every Register Office has a weekday morning upon which they do ‘simple signing’ for Weddings. Each Register Office will call it something different. You will have to pay £35 each to ‘Publish the Banns of Marriage’, which is an archaic English thing we do…
You will then need to book to have a dimple ceremony of about 15 minutes with 2 witnesses on a weekday morning in a Register Office. You will sign some documents and pay about £135. THAT’S IT!
This gives you complete freedom to work with a Celebrant to make sure that you get EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT and you can marry anywhere you like….
You book with the Registrar, you book with me for the date you have and we go from there.
