Ceremony fees

The fees and charges for services from Gloucestershire Registration Services are reviewed yearly and may be subject to change. 

Booking Fee: A non-refundable booking fee of £50 must be paid to secure a booking (please note this booking fee cannot be paid by cheque). 

Payment of balance of fees: The balance must be paid 2 months before the date of your ceremony. In the case of bookings made within 2 months of the proposed date full payment will be required at the time of booking.

Amendment fee:  Please note that a fee of £40 will be charged for any changes to the date, time or venue of your ceremony or £60 if the amendment is made within 2 weeks or less of the ceremony date. Please note that if you change your venue you will also need to give notice again at the cost of £35 per person.  We are unable to postpone a ceremony and you will either need to cancel or make an amendment to the booking. 

Cancellation: All cancellations must be confirmed in writing. Please read our Terms & Conditions.

You may wish to consider taking out an appropriate insurance policy in case your ceremony has to be cancelled or postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.
