Once you have chosen your venue and discussed your ceremony time and date with them you should ensure a Registrar is available before booking your venue.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

Following the government announcement, the holding of ceremonies is suspended from the 5 November until 2 December 2020 (inclusive). However, it is possible that restrictions may continue after this date. If you have a query about your ceremony please email ceremonies@northyorks,gov.uk. We are receiving a high number of enquiries so please understand if we are not able to answer your email as soon as we would like.


To book your register call our customer services team on 01609 780780.

Once your ceremony is booked, you will need to give Notice of Marriage/Civil Partnership - known as ‘Giving Notice’. You will need to make an appointment with the register office where you live (and pay council tax), and bring specific documents.

Please read the information on the check list carefully so that you have all the correct documents to complete your legal preliminaries. The check list provides a guide to ensure you have everything you need for your appointment. If you do not bring the right documents we will not be able to complete your notices.

You will need to pay a deposit to secure the booking. View current registration fees.
