Updated - 18 September 2020
The online booking system for new ceremony bookings was relaunched on the website on 26 August.
We immediately realised there was a problem with the system which meant the bookings made by couples weren’t being successfully completed. The booking system was then removed from the website.
This was not the fault of any couple trying to book and was purely due to the high number of couples accessing the system who were understandably trying to book the registrars for their ceremony.
To counteract this, we will be staggering new bookings by date of ceremony. This will hopefully ease the traffic to the system and allow couples to book the registrars for their ceremony without experiencing technical difficulties.
Ceremony bookings for 2023 will not be available until early January 2021.
The online booking system will open up in the afternoons and dates are subject to change.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused and are hopeful that the measures put in place will prevent the initial technical issues from reoccurring.
Due to the suspension of ceremonies from March 2020 – July 2020 there is understandably limited availability on some Saturdays in summer 2021. We continue to work on our diaries so that we can accommodate as many ceremonies as possible.
Please note that the online booking 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. Please do not email asking for a time that is not showing on the system as we are unable to accommodate this for you.
Once you have selected your venue, date and time please proceed 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 period of time, go back into the system and try again.
