Book the registrar

Updated - 20 August 2021

Please read the information on this page before you complete your booking.

Due to the large volume of ceremonies that were postponed and rescheduled because of the pandemic our availability for new ceremony bookings to take place in 2021 has been affected. Please read the information under the headings below for more details.

If there is a reason why you need a ceremony urgently then please contact us, such as where one of the couple is seriously ill and not expected to recover, or where one of the couple needs to be in a legal partnership for other reasons, such as military deployment.

Please bear with us and we will respond to your enquiry soon.

As a reminder, you must give notice at least 28 days before the ceremony.

Small ceremonies in working offices (early bird ceremonies)

Due to the large volume of enquiries and the backlog caused by the pandemic we are temporarily pausing new booking enquiries for our small ceremonies held in working offices in Gt Yarmouth, King’s Lynn and Norwich.

We will begin receiving enquiries for these ceremonies from 4 October 2021. If you submit an enquiry form before this date we will ask you to resubmit after 4 October 2021.

Please note that once we commence new booking enquiries we expect the earliest availability for these ceremonies to be Autumn 2022. Depending on your circumstances you may find it beneficial to consider holding a ceremony in one of our dedicated ceremony rooms instead.

As stated above, if there is a reason why you urgently need a small office ceremony, such as where one of the couple is seriously ill and not expected to recover then please contact us.

Norwich Castle and other ceremony rooms

You can book a ceremony at Norwich Castle and at some of our other ceremony rooms such as The Vancouver Suite in our King's Lynn registration office using our online booking system.

The system shows all available dates and times for ceremonies. If the time you are looking to book is not showing it’s because there is no availability. You will need to choose another available time or date.

Approved venue bookings

The system shows all available dates and times for ceremonies. If the time you are looking to book is not showing it’s because there is no availability. You will need to choose another available time or date.

Once you have selected your venue, date and time please go ahead and confirm your booking. If you click the back button at any point, your ceremony may show as unavailable when you go to select it again. If this happens please wait for a little while, go back into the system and try again.

This booking is just for the registrars to attend your ceremony, it is not a booking for the venue as well. You must speak to your chosen venue first to discuss their availability and fees, then make sure a registrar will be available before you confirm the booking with your venue.

We are accepting bookings until the end of 2023. If you are wanting to book a ceremony for 2024 please revisit the website in early 2022 when the diaries for 2024 will be open.

We look forward to receiving your booking and helping you celebrate in Norfolk.
