If you are having a marriage or civil ceremony in a Church of England or Wales, you may be asked to give notice at your local register office.
If you are having a ceremony in a church other than a Church of England or Wales, you must give notice at your local register office. The church must be your usual place of worship if you wish to have your ceremony there.
