Although most legal restrictions have been lifted, the Government has advised us to consider COVID-19 risks and introduce measures to manage and reduce those risks. This is to protect ourselves and others around us.
The number of attendees is determined by how many people the venue or space can safely accommodate. Please contact your venue to find out their numbers and any covid site specific requirements.
In the Register Office ceremony rooms at Huddersfield and Dewsbury Town Hall, the total number of guests allowed is 30.
These appointments are running in the town halls as normal in a COVID-safe way.
New marriage legislation means that the way a marriage is registered in England and Wales changed from 4 May 2021. You can no longer sign a marriage register or be given a marriage certificate during the ceremony. Instead you will sign a Marriage Schedule. This is a one-page document which contains the details of both people getting married which are needed to register a marriage. This applies to all marriages - both civil and religious.
The Marriage Schedule will be provided by the Superintendent Registrar in the registration district of your marriage and will contain all the details required to complete a marriage registration.
In addition to father details, other details can be recorded, like mother or step-parent.
Each person is still required to give Notice of Marriage and the marriage ceremony remains the same. It is only the way that a marriage is registered that has changed.
Please do not forget that our friendly staff are here to help. We are always happy to answer any questions and support you through the entire process. We want to ensure that your ceremony is personal to you and just how you always imagined it would be!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our ceremony very special indeed. You were always so helpful and professional. Lisa, you made sure Terry didn't marry Elizabeth and somehow, you managed to fit his name on the marriage certificate. We had a perfect day and such an intimate and personal ceremony. Thank you all!Jenny and Terry Pemberton McDonald
