Your Ceremony

The bride/partner may wish to be escorted into the marriage room or the bride & groom or partners may enter the room together, separately or with their guests. 

The Registrar will discuss these arrangements with you.

If you are being married at one of our registration offices and you choose to arrive separately, the bride/partner should arrive 5 to 10 minutes prior to the marriage. The groom/partner should arrive 15 minutes prior to the ceremony.

Time is not allocated for the bride to be ‘traditionally late’, as arrangements for other marriage parties have to be taken into consideration.

Any parties arriving late may result in their ceremony being rearranged for another time.
