So we booked our Venue just before Xmas (Ahhhhhh). Now what? I assumed we would have to go to townhall to make sure a registar is available on that day or give notice of the marriage or something, but when we checked it said you have to do it no earlier than a year before the wedding date... is that right? Seems abit tight for someone like me who wants to get it done asap. How does this all work? Xxxx
Hi It is right but you can see the registrar to make a provisional booking to make sure the date is free :)
Ive booked mine and that's for 22.6.19 x
Contact your registrar to make a provisional booking. Then once it is a year until the date you can give notice of marriage. Your local council website should have all the information on it.
Timescales vary from council to council. It is common that they wont take any bookings for ceremonies more than a year before you wedding (although some councils do allow you to provisionally book, but not a lot of them). Your notice of marriage is only valid for a year, therefore you can only do this up to 12 months before your wedding :)
I can't book my notice of marriage (thats a year before), but i can book my date and time (deposit only), as i called about my wedding for 2020 and was shocked when she said i could do it then and there... safe to say i said i would call back haha
