The Prime Minister has announced that from 4 July, religious and civil marriage ceremonies and civil partnership formations will be allowed to recommence in England if certain conditions around social distancing are met.

We are currently awaiting further guidance on the conditions and social distancing measures that need to be met to enable us to start rescheduling and take new ceremony bookings. As soon as the guidance is received, we will be in contact with couples and we will update this page and social media.

We will be undertaking Notice of Marriage appointments week commencing 6 July 2020. Priority will be given to couples whose authorities will expire by 4 July.

If your authorities have expired between 25 March to 4 July, we will be contacting you directly to offer new Notice of Marriage appointments free of charge to those who live in Wolverhampton.

Those couples who live outside of Wolverhampton should contact their local register office to find out what arrangements they have put in place.
