Refunds and Cancellations

Reservation fees are non-refundable, and any change to the date, time or venue of a ceremony will incur a further non-refundable payment of the same amount.

Any ceremony cancelled in writing more than two months to the day in advance will receive a full refund upon request.

Any ceremony cancelled in writing between two months and up to eight days before the ceremony will receive a 50% refund upon request.

Any ceremony cancelled with fewer than 7 full day’s notice will not be refunded.

As a gesture of goodwill towards our customers, Warrington Registration Service has, where appropriate, waived fees for customers whose notice, marriage or civil partnership was affected by the C-19 pandemic. As of 1 September 2021, Warrington Registration Service will cease to waive any additional charges incurred because of the pandemic, and the statutory fee will be required for each notice of marriage attested.

Please note, cancellations made over the phone are not accepted in order to protect our couples from fraudulent or malicious cancellations. All cancellations should be made in writing to registrars@warrington.gov.uk.

Useful information about our fees

Our fees are reviewed every year in January, with any price changes coming into effect from April. Please note all ceremony bookings are subject to the discretion of the Superintendent Registrar. Though Warrington Register Office will always strive to accommodate your needs, not all days will be available for ceremonies.
