About the notice of intention
Each person wanting to marry has to give their own notice of intention to marry to the Superintendent Registrar in the district in which they reside. Both parties must have resided in a district in England or Wales for at least 7 whole days immediately prior to giving a Notice of Marriage.
This notice will then be displayed on the public notice board for 15 days, after which, provided all documentation has been received and cleared, an authority for your marriage to proceed will be issued. This notice can be given up to one year in advance of the date of your wedding.
If you live in different districts, notice must be given to the Superintendent Registrar in the district where you live.
You will be able to marry in any register office or approved premises in England or Wales irrespective of where you live, however if you intend to marry in a religious building that is not in the district where one or both of you live, you must be able to testify that this is your usual place of worship.
