You must make an appointment with Lambeth Register Office to give notice of your marriage or civil partnership.

Do it online

What you need to know...

See Getting married or entering into a civil partnership for information on what documents to bring to your appointment.

Congratulations!

Now you have made the decision to marry or enter into a civil partnership, it’s time to get your all-important certificates.

Save time and money!

There will be instances where you and your partner will be asked to provide a marriage or civil partnership certificate, so why not save time and money and get them at the time of registration where you can purchase them for £4 each. After this time they will increase to £10. That’s a 60% discount!

We recommend a minimum of 5 certificates that you will need for a number of different reasons which include:

  • Opening a joint bank account
  • Mortgages / property holdings
  • Life insurance / assurance polices
  • Changing your name
  • Renewing of vows
  • If you decide to adopt a child
  • Applying for probate
  • Making a will
  • Applying for visas if you decide to move abroad
  • Divorce proceedings
  • Family tree records
