Marriages and civil partnerships: Booking and fees

You will need to book the registration staff before committing yourself to a date and time for a marriage or civil partnership.

How to book the registration staff

To book registration staff for a marriage or civil partnership at an Approved Premises, you will need to contact Rhyl register office.

You will have to pay a provisional booking fee which is non-refundable and noon-transferable if you cancel or alter arrangements. The provisional booking fee is £30 for a marriage in the register office or a place of worship, and £120 for a marriage in an Approved Premises. This will be taken off the full fee if there is no change. 

Priority Service

If you would like to book our registration staff more than 12 months in advance of your marriage or civil partnership, then you can use our priority service.

How much does the priority service cost?

The priority service costs £75.

This optional priority service payment is non-refundable and will not be deducted from the final fee due.
