Fees


  • A “ceremony” is either a civil marriage or a civil partnership.
  • The fee includes the cost of the Registrars attending the ceremony and preparing the paperwork beforehand.
  • Prices are correct for the 2022/23 financial year but subject to review/change.  Fees change each year and you will be required to pay the fee applicable to the date of your ceremony.
  • One certificate is included in the cost unless stated otherwise.
  • Terms and conditions apply.
  • Fees are for Leicestershire Registration Service only.
  • The couple are responsible for booking Registrars for their ceremony at a venue – venues are never responsible for booking ceremony Registrars.  It is vital that you call us and book your date and time before finalising arrangements with your venue.

Ceremony in the Register Office

Wednesday mornings – £46

  • By law, we must have at least one room in the county where legal ceremonies can be performed and at the price of £46 (plus the certificate fee) – this designated room is known as the Register Office. Our Register Office is located within Glenfield Registration Office.  The room is an office and whilst it is decorated as a ceremony room, it is also a working office and contains a desk and computer. We offer ceremonies on a Wednesday morning only and are very popular so any requests for this room must be made promptly in order to avoid disappointment.

  • A non-refundable booking fee of £25 will be taken. This will be deducted from your final balance.
