    Hi Everyone!

    Next week were making the call to the registry office and I dont really know how it works. I know at some point we do an interview and have to pay our fees, but what happens before that? What do I say in the phone call?

    Thanks in advance everyone

    I have my appointment on Monday :) When I rang up I just said I needed to book appointment to give notice and asked what ID I needed as I knew I would need extra as I have changed my name by deed poll I also checked when I pay fees which will be on the day and that was about it .
    So after call it's just getting money and ID ready :) x

    You need to have the registrar booked for the actual wedding before you can book to give notice, if that helps?

    We provisionally booked our wedding with the registrar that covered the district we got married in. We then gave notice by appointment at our local council offices. During this, we had to take ID (passports, birth certs etc) My (now) husband had to take his decree absolute. The gentleman then took about 5 minutes confirming all our details on his computer, then said we would receive the "authority to marry" form through the post in about 7-10 days. When that form came through, we then had to post it to the registrar who was marrying us, and this confirmed our wedding booking. Your wedding booking will only be provisional until this authority form is given to the registrar.

    I booked the provisional date with one registry office, and had to call the other one to get an appointment to give notice. Basically as said above, they will just take your details of where you will be getting married, the date and time, and then they will say that you will need to bring your birth certificate if you haven't got a passport, photo I.d (I.e. Driving license) and two things with your address on to confirm where you are living. You will also be paying the fee of £35 each at that same appointment.

    Just say you want to make an appointment to give notice. They will generally give you a list of what I'd you can bring. They'll ask your names, birthdays, address etc. They will also ask your fathers occupations, and if you and h2b are related (lol!)
