Arranging your wedding
legal wedding must be solemnised in a place that has been
sanctioned according to the law for the celebration of marriages,
preliminaries have been observed. Places where civil weddings
may take place can also be used for forming civil
fees vary depending on which venue is used.
For all marriages (except those taking place in the Church of
England or Church in Wales) legal preliminaries must take place at
a register office before the wedding takes place. Legal
preliminaries are also required for civil partnerships.
Formal notice of intention to marry or form a civil partnership
can be given up to 12 months beforehand but bookings for the actual
ceremony or civil partnership formation in Medway can be made
further in advance than this.
Further information about arranging your marriage or civil
partnership may be obtained from GOV.UK's Marriages
and civil partnerships.
Further information about planning a wedding at the Church of
England or Church in Wales may be obtained here from the Church of
England website or the Church in Wales
