Book a registrar for your ceremony

Coronavirus Update

National Lockdown: Camden Register Office is offering face to face appointments for Birth Registrations, and Notices of Marriage and Civil Partnership. Death Registrations continue to be via telephone. Ceremonies are unable to take place unless the circumstances are exceptional. This will be reviewed when the government announces plans to end the National Lockdown measures. If your ceremony is affected we will contact you.  

Please visit our Citizenship page for more information on Citizenship Services.

Visitors: Entrance to our offices is by appointment only, and due to the current government regulations you are required to wear a face covering upon entering our offices.

Please note the following:

  • Tavistock House ceremonies will now take place in the Tavistock Suite ONLY. ‘Social distancing’ requirements mean we ask that you bring no more than 9 guests (including witnesses and excluding yourselves). 
     
  • Temporary Tavistock Suite Fees: 
    Monday-Wednesday (9am-before 4pm) £170 
    Thursday-Friday (9am-before 4pm) £195 
    Saturday (9am-4pm) £285
     
  • The Edwin Room and the Silver Birch room will not be used for ceremonies until March 2021 at the earliest. This will be reviewed based on government and health and safety advice. If you book the Edwin or Silver birch Rooms then you will automatically be upgraded to the Tavistock Suite with no extra charge.
     
  • All approved venue ceremonies should go ahead as planned from only if the venue is covid secure. Please check with your venue. 
     
  • Notice of Marriage, Civil Partnership, or Certificate of Non-impediment for marriage abroad can be given from 3rd August 2020. 
     
  • If you make a ceremony booking and have not already given your notice of marriage/civil partnership, we may not be able to take your notice of marriage/civil partnership, due to the likely high demand for services, thus being unable to observe the legal 28 days’ notice period for your ceremony to go ahead.
     
  • Please note any bookings made maybe subject to change in observing government guidelines on social distancing. If you have to postpone a current booking, please email: tietheknot@camden.gov.uk  and any updates will be posted on this website. 

Please see government guidance on small marriages and civil partnerships. 

How to book a registrar for your ceremony

For your marriage or civil partnership, two registrars will need to be in attendance. Once you have selected your venue and confirmed the date is available for booking, your next action is to contact the registrars to ensure they are available on the day.

Follow the link below on how to book a registrar and it will also show their availability.

Please note that booking to give notice and paying your registrars to attend your chosen wedding venue are two separate payments.
