Celebrate in Herefordshire - Page 8

Approved venues This will follow a similar format to ceremonies in a Register Office. Two Registration Officers will attend your ceremony. One Registration Officer is responsible for ensuring that all the information entered into the marriage register is correct on the day. He or she will see you and your partner in private to check the details which will be recorded in the register and on your marriage certificate. You may indicate whether you wish to be seen together or separately. The second Registration Officer will be conducting the ceremony. Both Registration Officers will be happy to answer any last minute questions you may have about the ceremony. The fee for a ceremony in an Approved Venue is due not less than four weeks before the day of your ceremony. Approved Venues often provide the perfect setting, including stately homes, historic buildings and first class hotels. They may offer various arrangements for your wedding party and the ceremony may be as simple or as complex as you wish. Many of the buildings are set amidst landscapes and beautiful gardens in which to have your photographs taken. The events organiser in each of the venues will be delighted to discuss the various arrangements that can be made to make your day extra special. To arrange a wedding at an Approved Venue, you must first contact the venue of your choice to make a provisional arrangement. Then contact the Register Office to ensure that the Registration Officers are able to attend your marriage on the date and time of your choice. Details of your notice of marriage can be given to you at that time. all photos - www.anneparkerphotography.co.uk 7
