Registration Staff will be delighted to help you with your marriage formalities.

Legal requirements

To marry in Northern Ireland, you and your partner must be:

• aged 18 or above on the day of your wedding (consent is needed if either of you is aged 16 or 17)
• unrelated to one another in a way that would prevent you from getting married
• free to marry, for example, neither of you is already a civil partner or legally married
• of a different sex
capable of understanding the nature of a marriage ceremony and of agreeing to marriage.

To make sure both parties meet these criteria, you must each  complete a marriage notice form, and supply the other necessary documents needed to get married, before your ceremony can take place. These should be returned to the Registrar’s office in the district where you plan to marry.  Please contact us if you have difficulty coming into our office with your marriage notice forms and documents.
