Useful information about our fees

Our fees are reviewed every year in January, with any price changes coming into effect in April.  Full payment for ceremonies taking place from 1 April 2020 will not be accepted until any new prices have been set. Your Registrar will explain this to you in more detail at the point of booking.

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.
