- If you make a ceremony booking for August 2020 and have not already give 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: Marriage and civil partnership law requires that a notice must be a face-to-face interview before a registrar in person. Notices cannot be given by proxy, by post, in writing, by video call, online or by any other method.
How to give notice
You will need to book a notice of intention to marry (notice) appointment with your local registry office. This may be in Camden if you are a resident or in another borough if you live elsewhere.
Before this appointment you must know the venue and have an idea of when you would like to get married. You cannot give notice more than one year in advance of your ceremony.
A notice of marriage or civil partnership is a legal statement which you must sign. Once completed, it will be available on our public notice boards for 28 days.
This is a legal requirement and once notice has been given you must wait at least 29 days before the marriage or civil partnership can take place. This could be extended to 71 days depending on your immigration status.
We would advise you give notice at least 3 months before your ceremony if possible. Notices are valid for one year.
Please note: Camden Registration Service will be cashless from 17th February 2020. All major Debit and Credit cards are accepted apart from American Express.
