Hi, iv just been made really confused. We have just booked the appointment to give our notice in and paid the £35 each but where does the rest of the money that we was told about go and when and how do we receive the licence. I'm sorry if this is a blonde question.
When you go for you appointment to give notice, you pay the rest of the money then. You will receive your license straight after your wedding service on the day.
When we went to give notice, we received a letter to stated when the rest of the money needed paying.. And the license, do you mean marriage certificate? You'll get that as soon as you marry
You usually pay the registrar fees 8 weeks before the wedding x
You give notice, then a certain amount of weeks before the wedding you pay the remainder x
the money you pay for your notice is a separate fee x our registrar is £500 but we had to pay £80 for notice fees x
It’s to register your marriage which goes into a National database like births and deaths.
It pays for the venue and 2 legal officiants and certificate
You get the license on the day or marriage
Gave notice two months ago, we paid the remainder of the fee excluding the £35 notice fee each on the day we gave notice, and by licence I presume you mean the certificate which you get straight after your wedding ceremony on the day
Ask your registrar rather than fb 😂😂
It's £70 for the notice, the actual registrar fee is different depending on what you're having and where, mine is £57 😊
BTW I was really confused at first too, sometimes they don't explain things well do they 😂🤔
When I got married, I collected the license from the registry office of the borough that we got married in after the 28 day notice period. They should contact you to let you know when it’s ready. And then you get the marriage certificate after the ceremony (that the bit that you sign on the day).
Unless you are talking about a special licence, to get married out of area, for example, you dont get anything. You have paid for the paperwork to be done. Then you will pay for the registrar and room hire and marriage certificate, which you will get after the ceremony or you will have to collect, depending on how many you choose to buy xx
I paid £30 for the registrar to reserve our date. Then £35pp notice fee. This puts your name up on the wall for anyone to object to for a specific amount of time. As I'm getting married at a venue I have another appointment where I have to pay £480 for the registrar to come to the venue, perform the ceremony, do the paperwork for all of it and provide us with a marriage licence. Its blooming expensive. Would be cheaper to get married at the registry office and have a celebrant do a mini ceremony but it's not what we wanted x
Ho, I am also a little confused. I am getting married 29th August 2021 in my hometown of Sheffield. Looking on the website for booking a registrar, it saus £500 for a bank holiday (we are getting married on bank holiday Sunday), £60 non refundable deposit, it then says that this is on top of any other fees, plis £11 for the certificate on the day.
So does this mean, we pay £60 deposit plus £500 then for the certificate? I am only just looking into this as we are wanting to book them soon! Haha why do they make it so confusing lol xxx
And dont forget if anyone has children together before they get married,you then need to register them again and pay for new birth certificates as the old one will be void x
You pay the rest at your notice appointment, and you recieve your certificate at your wedding
My fiance dealt with all of that but £500 sounds like a worrying figure. Is that only if you marry elsewhere? We are doing the legal bit in the registry office and then having a wedding blessing at our venue. I'm sure he said it was only in the £200 region all in, we like to pay things in full, can't be faffing around with deposits and last payment dates.
It’s £35 each for us to give our notice. Then you pay the registrar about 8 weeks before when you go and talk about your vowels etc, my registrar cost is £545
Your notice and registrar fees are 2 different things. I live in Plymouth but am getting married in Newquay. I had to give notice at Plymouth and pay £35 each. I then had to book the registrar with the registry office closest to where I’m getting married. We pay them around £500 (I can’t remember exactly) to conduct the ceremony and then £10 extra per certificate.
When you give notice they display it at your local office for 30 days so people can object if they want, then if you are getting married elsewhere it also goes to that office. From the day those 30 days are up you can legally get married for up to a year after.
My costs were £70 for registration then a further £205 for Registrar services at a hotel (that was on their list of appropriate venues).
