Both the bride and groom are legally required to give a notice of marriage, in person, to a Superintendent Registrar at the register office in the area where each of them lives. A notice of marriage is a legal statement showing the bride and groom's personal and family details and the name of the marriage venue. The minimum period of residence prior to giving notice is seven days
Booking a Ceremony
If you wish to marry at Hempstead House then you will need to book the ceremony with us and we will then make the booking on line with the local register office. You will then receive a confirmation by email. Your date and time of marriage are guaranteed so don't worry that you need to confirm the availability of a Celebrant and Registrar before you book the venue. Once the register office has received your booking you will be sent a confirmation. An appointment will then be made for you to meet and discuss your arrangements with a member of their Ceremony Team, who will guide you through all the legal preliminaries to the wedding and make sure that these are successfully completed.
