Fees

Northamptonshire Registration Service fees - valid from 1 September 2017 to 31 March 2018.

Notes

We take ceremony bookings up to 2 years ahead. Where a booking is made in one financial year and the ceremony is in another, any fee increase will be passed on to customers.

All payments should be made by debit or credit card.

The balance of a ceremony fee is payable either at the time of booking or by 8 weeks prior to the date of the ceremony, whichever is the nearest date to the day of the ceremony. The ceremony fee includes the statutory fee for one certificate.

A deposit is taken at the time of booking some services.

All fees taken are subject to our cancellation policy in our terms and conditions.
