    You will need to book a registra from the registry office in the area that your venue is in. You can provisionally book these as soon as you have your venue confirmed.

    You need to give notice to get married at your local registy office, if this is different to the area where you are getting married. You can do this upto 12 months in advance of the wedding and it costs £30 each. You just call up and make an appoinement, it was all very easy and only took approx 20 mins.

    You do have vows in a civil ceremony, but they are shorter than a church wedding, so you can having readings that people do in-between if you wish, although these cannot have any religious content. Your registra will run throught all of this with you though
