How and when to give notice of intent

Once you’ve booked your ceremony, it’s important to give notice of intention to marry or enter into civil partnership at the latest 29 days before the date of your ceremony (71 days before if either of you is subject to immigration control). Notice must be given by both of you in person at your local register office. If either of you is subject to immigration control, you can give notice at Kensington and Chelsea Register Office regardless of where you live in England and Wales.

What do I need to know

What documents do I need?

When you attend your appointment to give notice of intention, you must each bring the following documents with you:

  • Your valid, original passport
  • Your immigration status document (if applicable)
  • A recent passport sized photograph each, if either of you is subject to immigration control
  • Proof of address in one of the following formats: a bank statement dated within the last month; a utility bill dated within the last three months; a council tax statement dated within the last year
  • If either of you has been married or in a civil partnership before, proof of how this ended e.g. your decree absolute of divorce or dissolution (or foreign equivalent); or death certificate of your former spouse and your last marriage / civil partnership certificate.

The statutory fee for giving notice is £35 per person, payable at the time of booking the appointment.  There is an additional Home Office statutory referral fee of £24 for those subject to immigration control (payable at the appointment).  There is also a statutory fee of £75 for clearance of foreign divorces or dissolutions (payable at the appointment).

All documents must be originals.  Any documents not in English must be accompanied by a third party translation into English on which the translator certifies that it is a true and accurate translation of the original document seen by them.  

Each person who does not speak English must attend the appointment with an interpreter.

Once you’ve given notice of intention, we ask you to pay the ceremony attendance fee for your ceremony and submit your ceremony choices form, so that we can ensure everything ready for our big day and your ceremony will be tailored to your exact wishes.

Legal requirements

You must both give notice of intention to marry or enter civil partnership at the latest 29 days before the date of your ceremony (71 days if either of you is subject to immigration control).

If you are both not subject to immigration control, you must give notice at your local register office.

If either of you is subject to immigration control, you can give notice at the Kensington and Chelsea Register Office regardless of where you live in England or Wales. Book an appointment.

If either of you doesn’t live in England or Wales, you will need to return to an address in England or Wales for eight days before giving notice.

Alternative arrangements are in place for those living in Scotland, Isle of Man, Jersey or Guernsey and its dependencies – please contact us at registrars@rbkc.gov.uk for further information.

Your notices are valid for one year after you have given notice, only for the people and venue specified.  If you change your venue, you would need to give notice afresh.  If your notices expire, you would need to give notice again.

Advice if residing abroad

In order to get married or have a civil partnership in England or Wales, the law requires you both to be resident in England or Wales. Resident means both of you having been at one address in England or Wales for at least eight days immediately prior to the date of your appointment to give notice of intention to marry or enter into civil partnership.

Therefore, if one or both of you are residing abroad, you will need to return to England or Wales for at least eight days in order to give notice of intention to marry or enter into civil partnership. Your marriage or civil partnership can proceed 29 days after you give notice (sometimes 71 days if either of you is a non-EEA national). After having given notice, you are both free to travel again before the date of your marriage or civil partnership. Your marriage authorities or civil partnership schedule is valid for one year from the date that you gave notice, for your chosen venue only. It is therefore your choice whether you remain in the UK after you’ve given notice until your ceremony, or whether you prefer to leave the UK to return later in the year for the ceremony itself. 

Registrars cannot give immigration advice. Please note however that for non-EEA/Swiss nationals, you must ensure that you have the relevant visa for marriage or civil partnership before entering the UK ideally to give notice and definitely for the ceremony itself. If you don’t have indefinite leave to remain or diplomatic immunity, this would usually be a fiancé visa (for a non-EEA national residing abroad joining an EEA/Swiss partner in the UK or non-EEA/Swiss person with settled status in the UK) or a marriage visitor visa (if both of you are entering the UK solely for your marriage or civil partnership and will leave the UK again immediately afterwards). Both of these visas are usually valid for six months from the date of application, so if you obtain these visas to give notice and are planning to leave the UK after you give notice, make sure you return for your ceremony before the visa’s expiry. For more information visit the GOV.UK website.

We regret that there are no exceptions to this rule, even if you are a British citizen living abroad. You cannot give notice from abroad such as at a British embassy – this includes from Ireland or Northern Ireland. Special legal arrangements are in place if one of you is usually resident in Scotland, Isle of Man, Jersey or Guernsey and its dependencies; in these cases, please contact us at registrars@rbkc.gov.uk for further information.

Converting a Civil Partnership into a Marriage

The Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 provides for couples currently in a civil partnership to be able to convert this into a marriage. 

If you wish to convert your civil partnership to marriage you will only be able to do so if your civil partnership took place in England or Wales (or overseas in a British consulate or armed forces base where it was registered according to the laws of England and Wales) on or after Monday 5 December 2005, and as long as your civil partnership has not been dissolved.

There are two different types of Civil Partnership conversions: a one stage procedure and a two stage procedure.

 Stage 1Stage 2
Procedure

The one stage procedure is when you have a ‘conversion’ appointment in which the ‘conversion declaration’ is prepared and signed. There is no ceremony as part of Stage 1 however you may opt to say an official ‘Declaration Wording’ to each other if you so wish.

The two stage procedure is when you have a ‘conversion’ appointment in which the ‘conversion declaration’ is prepared. On a subsequent date you then attend an approved venue where you sign the conversion declaration and have a non-legal Conversion Ceremony to celebrate your new status.

Cost

£45 plus £11 per certificate

£27, plus cost of ceremony, plus £11 per certificate

 

  • You may attend your ‘conversion’ appointment in a Register Office of your choice and this Register Office does not have to be the same one in which your civil partnership took place. This means that even if your civil partnership did not take place within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea you will still be able to have your conversion here.
  • When you attend your ‘conversion’ appointment both of you will need to be present and to bring with you your passports, proof of your addresses and your legal civil partnership certificate. During this appointment the ‘conversion declaration’ will be prepared for signing.
  • Your civil partnership becomes a marriage when both of you sign the ‘conversion declaration’. This declaration confirms that you have not dissolved your civil partnership and that you both wish to convert your civil partnership into a marriage.
  • Once you have signed your ‘conversion declaration’ your marriage will be deemed to have existed since the date of your civil partnership.
  • Please note that a conversion is not a marriage ceremony, although you will be issued with a marriage certificate to confirm that your civil partnership has been converted into a marriage. If you choose the Stage 2 procedure you will be able to have a ceremony as part of your celebrations where you may say words to each other and exchange rings.
  • If you are using the Stage 1 procedure you will be issued your marriage certificates at the end of your ‘conversion’ appointment.
  • If you are using the Stage 2 procedure your marriage certificates will be available for you to collect from the Kensington and Chelsea Register Office on the next working day.
