Plan your ceremony

Once you’ve chosen your venue it’s important that you book a registrar for your ceremony and give your notice of marriage or civil partnership.

There are certain legal things that have to happen on the day of your ceremony.

You can use our community venue ceremony plan (Word 36 KB) to make your special day go smoothly.

You need to fill this in and email it to at least 10 weeks before your ceremony.
