Need some help my passport is due in March and I’m getting married in November I’m wanting it in my new name but just wondering how difficult it is to renew a fully out of date passport or would you just get a new one in your soon to be old name

Hi you need to have new forms from the post office. You can have a note from your registrar confirming that you are getting married then you can have your new passport in your new name :)

Hi You can get a passport up 2 3 months before your wedding date in your new name but the start date on your passport will be from the date of you wedding. I'm doing this my passport runs out in Sept n my wedding is in October. All you need to do is copy your old passports details onto the form and send it off with the forms. xx

As above have said you can get it in your new name 3 months in advance, big question is will you need it before then? Mine ran out this month, I marry in september but I need it in the next few months for a holiday, a dbs check and to give notice of marriage, so replaced it anyway.
