Fees

Fees are reviewed each year on 1 April and any charges made are applicable to the year the ceremony takes place, not when the fees are paid.

We can only take bookings up to two years ahead of your ceremony. If you would like your ceremony to take place after this, please make a booking within two years of your ceremony.

If the date of your ceremony is more than four months ahead, you will have the option to save the date of your ceremony or pay the full cost of the ceremony.

If you are booking a wedding you will not receive your marriage paperwork until notice of intention to marry has taken place.

If you choose to save the date of your ceremony, there will be a charge of £75.00 (Cheylesmore Manor House) or £100.00 (Approved Venue) to be paid as a deposit, and the remaining cost of your ceremony will need to be paid no later than three months before the date of your ceremony.

You will need a debit or credit card to make your booking request.

Fees

An amendment fee (your save the date fee) will be charged for each alteration made to the date or time of your ceremony. 

Any consideration for a correction to a marriage entry/certificate will incur a fee of £75 by your local register office or £90 if the documents need to be sent to the Registrar General for consideration. These fees can be paid by debit/credit card.
