Guidance for couples wishing to hold civil ceremonies on approved premises
1. Having confirmed the date and time of your ceremony at the approved premises, the couple are advised to contact the Ceremony Management Team for Cambridgeshire (covering Cambridge, Fenland, Huntingdon, and Ely):
Ceremony Management Team
Cambridge Register Office
Cambridge CB3 0AP
Telephone: 03450451363 (9.00am – 4.00pm Monday to Friday)
2. You will need to confirm with the Ceremony Management Team that a registrar can attend to conduct the ceremony on the day and time in question. This can be done up to 12 months in advance of the ceremony.
3. You will then receive written confirmation within 7 days. This will outline the date and place at which you need to give the legal notice of your intention to marry, the documents you need to produce and the fee to be paid.
A ceremony which takes place at approved premises has no religious connotations. The Registrar who performs the ceremony will outline the manner in which it will be conducted. You should discuss with them, in advance, the way you wish to personalise the ceremony.
The onus is on you to make sure that all legal requirements have been satisfied, and that the Registrar who will be conducting the ceremony, has the relevant authorities in their possession well in advance of the ceremony.
