Has anyone sent off for their new passport before their wedding?

I've got the form and our registrar has completed her half but I don't know if I sign my half in my maiden name or married name? I'm guessing he declaration needs to be in married name as this is the one that'll be on file?

    I've not long had my new passport back ready for honeymoon the day after the wedding- took me ages to find the advice online (and on an old forum chat on here).... but it worked fine and I had my new passport within a week!

    So the form that the registrar/ vicar signs is completed in your maiden name (i.e. MIss xxx xxx). The dearation box on the form you print out is what will be your married signature (I practised a bit first as wanted to "design" a new one!). 


    Hope thats helps!


    ps - if for any reason photos have to be countersigned then there is an additional wording for that that is on government passport website- I didn't have to get photos countersigbed luckily. It will tell you if you do on the declaration form.

    I will be going on honeymoon one week after we marry and was told I can still use my current (maiden name) that correct? Or do I have to change it to what my married name will become?

    Yeah you can. Basically the name the holiday is booked in and the passport have to match whether thats maiden or married name x
