Giving Notice of Marriage and Legal Requirements You must give notice of your intention to marry before you can marry in a registration office, approved premise, church or chapel in England and Wales (other than a Church of England where you may have banns called). Each person wanting to marry has to give their own notice of intention to marry to the Superintendent Registrar or nominated deputy in the area in which they reside. This is a legal requirement and failure to give notice will result in the ceremony not being able to take place. Both parties must have resided in a district in England or Wales for at least 7 whole days immediately prior to giving a Notice of Marriage. The legal notice waiting period is at least 28 days before the ceremony. A notice period of 70 days may be needed if either of the parties is not an EEA national. Your local registration office will be pleased to advise you further. During the waiting period your notice will go on public display at our Register Office and at the end of the waiting period your authorities for marriage will be issued. You will still be able to marry in any register office or approved premise in England or Wales irrespective of where you live, and your notice can still be taken up to one year in advance of the date of your wedding. A fee is charged for each notice given. If either you or your partner is subject to immigration control then each of you need to give Notice of Marriage at a designated registration office.
