Give Notice

Covid-19 Information. You must read before booking and attending our office.

Getting married abroad?

Giving Notice is the legally required process of you and your partner notifying your local community of your intent to marry or form a civil partnership.

It is an interview, where both of you will be asked questions about yourself and your partner.

You will sign a legal declaration, from which your information will be taken and displayed on our public notice board for 28 full days. You will be free to marry from day 29 onwards. (In some cases this period may be longer.)

Before you book your appointment you should first make sure you are fully prepared for your marriage / civil partnership journey.

Our office at Tavistock House has step free access via a lift. 

The rules on giving notice have changed, as a result of The UK's exit from the EU. 

A ‘relevant national’ is a British Citizen, an Irish Citizen or a person of any nationality who has been granted EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) status (either settled or pre-settled or has a pending application for that status submitted before the end of July 2021).

If either of you is a 'non-relevant national', one or both of the parties giving notice will have to reside in the district of Camden in order for us to take your notice. If both parties to the notice don’t live in Camden we cannot take your notice. Please check this before booking your notice appointment.
