    Hullo folks, can anyone help? I know you have to get your notices of marriage within a year of the big day... But where would we get them from?

    OH and I are hoping to get married at a venue just outside of our local councils area... Can we still give notice at our local registry office? Even if the registrar will be from a different office? Or does the notice have to be given at the office the registrar is coming from?

    Sorry if that's a silly question! X

    Notice of marraige has to be given in the borough you live in :)

    I took this from a website ...

    *Notice of Marriage is the completion of official forms before the Superintendent Registrar.

    It is a legal requirement that a Notice of Marriage is given separately by each person to be married.

    The notice must be given personally to the Superintendent Registrar of the district where they usually reside, preferably on the same day. If you live in a different district to the person that you are marrying, you must give notice at the Registration Office in your district.

    Before you can give Notice of Marriage you must meet certain conditions.

    You must both have lived in any district in England or Wales for seven days before the date you give Notice of Marriage.

    It does not matter if either of you moves to a different address once you have given notice.

    For a civil ceremony the marriage can take place either in the Registration Office where you have given notice, or any Registration Office of your choice, or approved venue.

    For a religious ceremony you usually can only marry in a church in the district where one, or both of you live.

    You can marry in a church outside your district of residence if either of you usually worship in the building or set up residency within the district.

    Notice of Marriage can be given for a Church of England marriage, but only in lieu of banns being called. Please check with your local Superintendent Registrar about this.

    Arrangements for the date and time of the wedding must be made with the building/church where the marriage is to take place. A Registrar or appointed person must be present.

    Once you have given notice, you must wait 15 clear days before the marriage can take place. The notice is publicly displayed in the Registration Office for this period.

    An authority must be issued for each person after the 15 clear days has elapsed. If you marry outside the district where you have given notice, the authorities must be collected as these are the legal documents allowing the marriage to take place.

    You must give the authorities to the Superintendent Registrar/Minister of the district/church where the marriage is to take place. Authorities are valid for 12 months from the date you give notice.

    A fee is charged for each notice to be given. Contact your local Registration Office for the current fees.

    DOCUMENTS YOU WILL NEED

    When you give Notice of Marriage, the following documents should be produced. All documents must be original, the Registrar cannot accept photocopies.

    Current valid passport or full birth certificate.
    Any one of the following:

    NHS medical card, utility bill, rent or council tax document, as proof of residence.
    Persons from abroad, outside the E.A.A, are required to produce a passport together with Home Office approval to marry in this country.
    Persons under 18 years of age must submit written consent from the appropriate parent/ guardian/authority.

    The Superintendent Registrar has forms for this purpose.

    Widowers or widows must produce proof of death of their former spouse, eg, death certificate certified by a Registrar.

    Divorced persons must produce a decree absolute bearing an original court seal. If the divorce took place in a foreign country, the original document must be produced and, if applicable, an English translation. (Some foreign divorces require clearance from the Registrar General and the Superintendent Registrar can arrange this)

    If a name has been changed by deed poll or statutory declaration then these documents should be produced.

    A fee is payable to give each notice.*
