The big day has arrived. This is what you and your guests can expect before, during and after the ceremony.
To make sure everything goes to plan and without any hitches, it is important that you and your guests arrive at least 15 minutes before the time of your ceremony. If you are late, we may not be able to proceed.
Remember to make allowances for getting to the Civic Centre, parking and traffic delays, especially if there are events on at Wembley Stadium or Wembley Arena. You may want to check and make your guests aware of this in advance.
If you have decided not to see each other before the ceremony and requested separate entrances, you will be interviewed individually, if you have not requested separate entrances, you will be interviewed together.
The Registrar will check that the details recorded onto the marriage of or civil partnership schedule are correct. We will then need to speak to your witnesses to check their full names and signatures. We will also organise the music at this time.
After these checks have been made, we can then proceed with your ceremony.
