By law notice has to be given to the registrar in the three month period before the date of your marriage and no later than 29 days before it. You will need to complete paperwork and pay fees.
If you are having a religious or belief marriage ceremony the registrar will issue your Marriage Schedule to you seven days before your marriage. This must be collected in person by one of the parties of the marriage.
If you are having a civil marriage ceremony then the registrar will bring your Marriage Schedule to your ceremony for signature and will subsequently register your marriage.
