Please note

Where VAT is chargeable, the fees shown above will be inclusive of VAT at the current rate.

Our ceremony fees are set on a 2 year rolling basis and implemented from the 1 April each year.  Statutory fees will be increased in line with statute changes.  All fees are set in line with council policy each year and are therefore subject to change.  Customers are required to pay the fee due at 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.  

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