You don’t have to give notice if you’re getting married in a Church of England church, unless one or both of you are foreign nationals subject to immigration control.
If you live in Birmingham and wish to get married in a different venue, you must first give notice of your intention to marry at least 29 days before the ceremony.
To give notice you will need to have booked the venue for your ceremony. Possible places to get married include:
- The Ceremony Suite at the Birmingham Register Office
- an approved premise
- legally registered religious buildings.
If you want to get married abroad, contact the country’s embassy in the UK. They will tell you which documents you need. Please also see Gov.UK’s guidance on getting married abroad.
