Milton Keynes registration service fees

All fees are set in line with council policy each year and are, therefore, subject to change. 

Statutory fees will be increased in line with statute changes.

Our ceremony fees are set on a two year rolling basis and implemented from 1 April each year. 

Customers are required to pay the fee due at the time of booking / delivery of a service, for example a ceremony taking place on 2 April will incur the new fee for that year regardless of when it was booked and ceremony fees are taken, in full, at the time of booking. 

Please visit our terms and conditions for further details about charges, increases, booking fees, deposits and refunds.
