Fees and charges for registrations and related services

All fees for services requiring an appointment, including statutory services, are taken in the form of a non-refundable booking fee. Full fee is retained if the customer does not advise us with two working days’ notice of non-attendance at the appointment. Ceremony attendance fees are always fully refundable.
