Marriage and Civil Partnerships - Notices

Resuming services

The Register Offices at Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are open for notices of marriage. 

We have made contact with couples who were booked in prior to the service being suspended and are now prioritising appointments for those with ceremonies within the next 6 weeks. If your ceremony is not for some time, we may not offer you an appointment at this time. 

There are new processes in place for appointments. When we book you in for an appointment you will receive an email with advice on these new processes, please make sure you read it before you arrive.
