Book a Registrar for your ceremony

All civil weddings and civil partnerships must be attended by a Superintendent Registrar and a Registrar in the district where the ceremony will take place.  If your ceremony is at an approved venue in Liverpool or Liverpool Register Office, this will be the district of Liverpool.

How to book

Our provisional booking service allows you to reserve a time slot for the Superintendent Registrar and Registrar to conduct your ceremony, up to two years in advance.

Booking fees

A provisional booking reservation fee of £25 is payable at the time of booking. 

Applications can be paid for by a credit or debit card. Please note that this fee is non-refundable and it does not form part of the ceremony fee.

Confirmation of bookings

We aim to respond to your provisional booking application within two working days by email. We will check your request against the time slots available for your chosen venue.  If the time slot is not available we will contact you to offer the nearest alternative. 

Please note that your provisional booking simply retains a time slot for a registrar to attend your ceremony. Your marriage/civil partnership cannot take place until your notices have been given.
