Notice appointments

These appointments are running in the town halls as normal in a COVID safe way.

Due to the volume of deferred appointments during the pandemic, our registrars are contacting couples with imminent ceremony bookings first, to arrange an appointment. We are able to offer appointments to those couples hoping to hold their ceremony this year. For those couples with ceremony bookings for next year, we ask for your patience as there are a lot of couples for us to see. Please keep checking this page for further updates.

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, and following government regulations, we have strict measures in place, for customers and staff, that must be adhered to at all times, to ensure everyone's safety.

If you, or any members of your household have, or start to display, symptoms or self-isolate prior to this appointment, please contact us to cancel it.

In order to avoid any unnecessary risks, we are limiting the number of people who can attend notice of marriage/civil partnership appointments to the parties required to give their notice of marriage/civil partnership.

Please maintain the recommended 2 metre distance at all times during your visit and use the hand sanitiser upon entry and when leaving the building. A member of staff will direct you to a designated waiting area from which the Registrar conducting your appointment will collect you and then escort you to the interview room. Please note that there will be limited access to toilet facilities.

We have installed Perspex screens in all our interview rooms and we will be carrying out a thorough cleaning process in between our appointments.

To minimise any risks of transmission of the virus, we are asking customers to make the relevant payment at the time of booking. We cannot take any payments during appointments. We also ask that customers submit any other ceremony enquiries they may have, prior to, or during their appointment, in the usual way (email/telephone).

Once your appointment has concluded, the Registrar will direct you out of the building.
