Statutory Marriage Registration (No Ceremony)

Step 4 – from 19 July 2021:

  • Safety, and maintaining the level of public services we can offer are our priorities.
  • Registrars will wear a face covering.
  • We’re requiring all visitors to East Sussex County Council buildings, including our Register Offices, to continue to wear a face covering in public areas and ceremony rooms (unless exempt).
  • We urge all people attending wedding ceremonies at which we officiate, in any venue, to continue to wear a face covering (unless exempt).

The simplest marriage ceremony available is the Statutory Marriage Registration. These registrations accommodate you, your partner and two witnesses only. You will need to arrange your own witnesses, East Sussex Registration is unable to provide witnesses for you.

Statutory Marriage Registrations take place in an office at Crowborough Register Office on the second Tuesday of each month. It is not possible to personalise these ceremonies or to bring extra guests, including children. 

The fee for a Statutory Marriage Registration is £74.

This includes the attendance of the Registrar, two statutory certificates and one commemorative certificate.

Certain legal preliminaries must be completed before you are able to marry, for further information see Giving Notice.

To book a Statutory Marriage Registration call the Ceremonies Hub on 0345 60 80 198.

Arranging a ceremony will require you to share some personal information with us. Refer to our Privacy Notice for details about how and why we use your data.
