The where and how of getting married

By Kate

Documents and Charges (England and Wales)

Documents you will need to produce when giving notice to the superintendent registrar.

Firstly you will need to produce documents which confirm the use and spelling of your name, age, address and nationality.

Secondly, if you have been married before you will have to produce documents to prove you are free to marry, either your former spouse's death certificate or a divorce decree absolute stamped by the court.

In certain cases, especially if you are a foreign national, other documents may be required , but the registrar will advise you of this.


The charges vary according to whether you are being married at a register office or other approved premises or place of worship. There are nationally set fees for obtaining the certificate or license. Local authorities set the charges for the attendance of a registrar at a wedding at approved premises. There are also charges for use of the venue or place of worship.
