Whatever you choose, whether it is an intimate ceremony with just yourselves and two witnesses, a small family gathering or a grand celebration we will be happy to help you make the day the one of your dreams.

Whether your ceremony is held in the Register Office, one of our approved premises, a church or other religious building you need to be aware of the formalities required.

  • you will need to make sure you have the correct documents when you attend and if in any doubt contact us for advice
