  • For register office ceremonies, only your 2 witnesses are able to attend, with no other guests.
  • For venue ceremonies, please contact the venue and ensure they will be open on the day of the ceremony and check any revised rules they may have, including the number of guests permitted, which must be by invitation only.
  • Please be advised that all our advice may be subject to change without notice
