THE CEREMONY

help and advice on planning your ceremony.

Planning your ceremony

To help plan your ceremony you will be provided with a Choices Booklet containing a selection of promises and readings you can include in your ceremony.
Immediately before the ceremony the Registrar will meet with you both in private, (you can be seen separately if you prefer and request so in advance) to establish the details to be recorded in the marriage or civil partnership register.

Civil marriages and civil partnerships are conducted in English. However, if either of the parties is unable to speak or understand English an interpreter must be present. We can discuss your requirements when you book your ceremony.

If you have hearing problems, you may need to have an interpreter or lip speaker at the ceremony. The registrar will be able to provide more information when you book your ceremony.
