Notices of marriage and civil partnership
We are currently experiencing an huge demand on our service for appointments.
Due to the demand, there is a considerable wait time for appointments. Please factor this in when booking your ceremony so that you will be able to give your notices within the statutory timeframe.
We will be rebooking those ceremonies that had to be postponed as a priority. All new bookings will be subject to availability later in the year.
We would like to thank you in advance for your co-operation and patience.
Please be aware any fresh notices are subject to the 28/70-day statutory waiting period and the statutory fee.
Couples subject to the referral scheme will need to be referred again if fresh notices are required.
All registrations will be by appointment only.
Ceremonies can take place with no legal limit of attendees. However, we are still taking reasonable steps to reduce the risks of transmission and maintaining a safe working environment.
At Feltham Lodge, all ceremonies will take place in the Garden Room which is our largest room.
The capacity for the Garden room is the couple, their two witnesses, one photographer and 14 guests. We are recommending visitors still wear masks and hand santise on arrival.
If you have booked an approved venue for your ceremony, please check the numbers they can accommodate.
Please check with your venue when they will reopen and the capacity they can accommodate.
If you have already postponed your ceremony and would like to reinstate/rebook it, please contact us by email as this will be the quickest way to reach us and for us to respond. Give your full names, place and date of original ceremony.
We will need to check your legal paperwork (if you had already given notice) to ensure it is still valid. Email us - email@example.com
Where exchanging of rings is required or desired for the solemnisation of the marriage or the formation of the civil partnership, hands should be washed before and after. The rings should be handled by as few people as possible.
Any certificates required would need to be ordered through the online ordering facility on our website. Certificates will be issued later and posted to the couple.
