It is very important for you and your guests to
arrive at least 15 minutes earlier than the time
of your marriage or civil partnership. In some
cases the Superintendent Registrar will advise
you to attend earlier.
This will allow you both to be seen (either
together or separately) by the Registrar before
the ceremony and for your guests to be seated.
You may find it helpful to appoint an ‘usher’ who
can liaise with the Registrar to co-ordinate this.
It is important that you and your guests are on
time, as the Registrar will have other weddings
to attend on the same day.
If you are unable to attend for any reason
please telephone the Superintendent
Registrar as soon as possible and confirm
any cancellations in writing.

simply see your ceremony as just another
‘legal affair’. Our experienced team guide over

to say to each other as you exchange your
rings, you may also write your own vows if you
prefer. Don’t worry about having to learn or
remember the words, our registrars will lead
you through them step by step.

are readings, candle lighting or making family
promises. Please visit our website for more

ceremony. At the Register Office at St George’s
Hall we are able to offer you your own choice
