    Holy [email protected] really? I live in Scotland and the cost for a humanist wedding is £390 (in 2015).

    My sister got married in her local church for just £100.

    This is one of the reasons we chose to go to the registry office as it was going to be £495 for the registrar to come to our chosen venue :(

    we originally chose registry office cos it was going to be **GULP** £700 just to have the registrar walk next door to the corn exchange where they are licensed.......i mean really!!?? Then theres all the wedding fees on top.....
    Weve now ended up booking a church at £421 - but as its not in our parish have to pay another £36 for the "priviledge" of having someone read our banns at a local church!
    Does anyone actually go to church and sit there to listen incase they hear the name of someone they know intending to marry ? I mean surely as its all over bookface as soon as your engaged if you were hiding another wife/husband someone would have cottoned on and wouldnt wait until that bit in the ceremony?! lol

    Oh... and I have to pay £34 on top of that for my Banns certificate! ..... I do live in West Sussex on the South Coast, I generally think things are way more expensive here. It is A very lovely and pretty church.... and it holds a lot of family memories for me as we have had several family and close friend weddings there... Plus I've been Godmother twice there too, but still............ I cant help but think they are very money orientated! xx

    not everyone is charging it ...YET apparently. Wigan council don't yet, but we only had to give notice to them. Lancashire Council DO, and it's them that charged us just for the initial phone call

    What caught me ore by suprise was having to pay the whole lot there and then, just assumed it would be a deposit system like everywhere else! Apparently they had to change it as people were paying deposits then not confirming nearer the time so registrars were going out unnecessarily.

    I know it's ridiculous! I was shocked when I found out how much it costs our registrar is costing £500, with a £50 booking fee!! I couldn't believe it was so expensive. I also can't believe the different prices between different registrars you would think it would be the same fee for every where! X

    You have to pay booking fee's as well? Yikes. Our Humanist is just telling us to either pay at some point on the run up to the ceremony or if we like on the day.

    In my area fees depend on days such as bank hols and where you are getting married such as it's cheaper in the registry office rather than getting married in an hotel however it's cheaper rates when they will be coming to our cathedral which will be £84 however we will need to pay £35 each for notice of marriage and we will paying some money to cathedral to do ceremony :)

    Mines £419 and it just will keep going up every April! Ridiculous! And you'd think there'd be a same price across the board but no, every council charges differently .... Councils must have millions stashed away!
