Ceremonies

​Covid-19 Update

Current Bookings

In light of government instruction all ceremonies are cancelled over the next 3 weeks.  Our team are working hard to contact you to reschedule.

We have over the last week contacted all those with ceremonies booked up to and including the 5th July 2020 recommending you reschedule your ceremony. You can do this by sending an email to ceremonies@wakefield.gov.uk Again our team are working hard to contact people in date order and we promise we will be in touch as soon as we can.

All customers have the choice to cancel or amend their ceremony to a later date (no earlier than 6th July 2020) at no additional charge. Ceremonies will not be rescheduled to a date prior to your booking. Requests must be submitted by email to ceremonies@wakefield.gov.uk (please put the date of your current booking and venue in the title of the email) and your request will be dealt with in date of ceremony order. Please do not telephone the office as you will be asked by our advisors to email.

New Bookings

Bookings will not be taken for ceremonies intended to take place before 6th July 2020. Should you wish to make a booking after this date please use our online booking form. Bookings will not be taken by telephone.

Notice of marriage or civil partnership appointments

Unfortunately you are unable to attend to give your notice of marriage or civil partnership. Please contact the office and your details will be added to our contact list so that when we are in a position to book your appointment we can contact you to make the necessary arrangements.

We appreciate that this is a very difficult time for all of our customers and can promise you we are working extremely hard to deal with all requests.
