Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

During the Government Covid roadmap, there are changes on how ceremonies may take place. At this time we are prioritising those couples who need to postpone their ceremony due to current restrictions. 

We are now accepting new bookings for ceremony dates. Please be aware that due to availability dates this summer may already have limited availability. We will ensure that as part of the booking you are given enough time to give Notice to Marry.

If you wish to contact us please email ceremonies@northyorks.gov.uk and include your venue, date of ceremony and booking reference in the subject line. We will respond to your email as soon as possible, but please be advised that we are very busy at this time.

Changes to marriage registration from 4 May 2021

New marriage legislation means that the way a marriage is registered in England and Wales will change from 4 May 2021. You will no longer sign a marriage register or be given a marriage certificate during the ceremony, instead you will sign a Marriage Schedule.
