Essential first steps

Personalise your ceremony

A civil marriage ceremony cannot have any religious content but you can add your own promises to the legal wording of the vows and select a couple of readings to make the ceremony more meaningful to you.

You can select a suitably moving piece of music, likewise your first steps as a married couple present a great opportunity to add a little individuality to your ceremony with a stand out piece of music for your entrance.

Just remember to send your individual choices for the ceremony into the Register Office at least 30 days prior to your wedding for approval and don’t forget to pay your ceremony fee at least 4 weeks before the wedding.
