Looking at Getting Married in Medway

Check if you can get Married

You can get married in England and Wales if you're:

  • 18 or over

  • not already married or in a civil partnership

  • not closely related

For more details visit Medway Registry Office webpage.

Plan your ceremony

You must decide where to have your marriage or civil partnership ceremony before ‘giving notice’.

To give notice, you’ll sign a legal statement at your local register office saying you intend to get married or form a civil partnership. This must include details of the final venue for your ceremony.

You must hold your ceremony within 12 months of ‘giving notice’.

Giving notice

Before you marry or enter into a civil partnership, it is a legal requirement that both of you must give notice at the register office in the district where you live.

You must arrange a date and venue for your ceremony before you can book an appointment to give notice.

Appointments are available from 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday.

Alternatively, you can book by calling Medway Register Office on 01634 338 899 or emailing [email protected].
