Register office weddings

If you simply want to do 'the legal bits', or you're holding a celebratory ceremony at a venue that isn't approved, then you can get married in the register office with the celebrant registrars and two witnesses.

This ceremony includes the register office as your venue and the attendance of Celebrant Registrars. For this ceremony type, when giving notice of marriage, please state Kirklees Register Office, Dewsbury, as your venue. Register office weddings are only available at Dewsbury Town Hall.
