Guide: Plan a marriage or civil partnership
You can get married or form a civil partnership if you are:
- 16 or over (but you will need permission from your parents or guardians if you’re under 18)
- free to marry, or form a civil partnership (single, divorced or widowed)
- not closely related
This guide will take you through the steps you need to follow involving first choosing your venue, then booking a registrar to conduct your ceremony and then giving your notice to marry or form a civil partnership – this bit is very important!
You can also find out how much your ceremony might cost and what will happen on the day.
