Book a notice appointment

If your appointment was cancelled due to Coronavirus, then you will be contacted to arrange a new appointment.

Once you have planned your ceremony, you must book an appointment to give us notice of your intention to get married or form a civil partnership.

Notices are venue specific and only valid for 12 months – this means you will not be able to make an appointment more than 12 months ahead of your ceremony date.

You must observe social distancing rules when you attend your appointment.

Book an appointment

You and your partner will need to attend the appointment. This means you will have to book a double appointment if you both live in Croydon, or if you are attending us as a Designated Office for non-EEA nationals.

Choose whether you want a civil partnership or marriage notice appointment by using the form.
