Fees

Here's a run down of what it will cost to have registrars officiate at your marriage or civil partnership ceremony in Norfolk.

For most people the fee will be £35 per person. For some non-EEA nationals who are subject to immigration control the fee is £47 per person. Use our easy online form to check your fees, as well as what documents you need to bring with you to the appointment and where you need to go.

If you live out of county we'll phone you to take your outstanding fee when we've received confirmation that you've given notice at your local registration office.
