Thinking of getting married?
If you have decided to be married by civil ceremony on Anglesey you can be assured of an individual and special ceremony tailored to your own requirements.
Within these pages you will find all the information you need to arrange your civil marriage in a Register Office or Approved Venue, how to give notice of marriage for a civil or religious marriage and how to arrange a Registrar to attend your religious marriage if necessary.
- If you are marrying in the Church of England or Church in Wales by Banns or Common Licence, you should contact your Vicar regarding any necessary legal preliminaries.
- If you are marrying in any other sort of church or chapel or by civil ceremony in a Register Office or approved venue, notice of marriage has to be given personally to your local Superintendent Registrar.
Both of you must have lived in a registration district in England or Wales for at least seven days immediately before giving notice at the Register Office.
- If you both live in the same district, you should both attend your local Register Office to give your notices of marriage.
- If you live in separate registration districts then each of you will need to give notice separately in your own area.
You can give notice of marriage up to twelve months in advance of your wedding day. Once you have both given notice, you must wait a further 28 clear days before the marriage can take place. Contact the Register Office for more advice as soon as you have decided to get married.
When giving notice of marriage in another district to get married at an approved premises on Anglesey please ensure that you inform the Registration Team at your district that the Anglesey registration district comes under ‘Ynys Môn’.
