Organising a wedding with Bracknell Forest Register Office

The staff at the register office are an enthusiastic team who will work with you to ensure your ceremony is exactly as you want it and carried out in accordance with law.

We can offer everything from a very simple and short ceremony in the blue room, to a full ceremony in the ceremonial room with extra vows and readings, and everything in between. Due to the size of the room, the only enhancement possible in the blue room is the standard extra vows.

You can find out more about our venues on the venues for civil marriages and partnerships page.

What do I need to do?

Firstly, you need to decide when and where you would like to get married or form a civil partnership. If the venue is within Bracknell Forest, please contact the register office.

Once you have booked your ceremony, you will need to give notice which involves a meeting with the registrar in the area where you live. You can find out more on our giving notice page. Once you have both given your notices, your booking will become secured.

Personalising your ceremony

At the time of booking, we will send you our ceremony choices leaflets. These will help to explain how the ceremony can be personalised. We can't amend the actual ceremony very much, as a lot is required by law, but you can decide which words you wish to use, and there are other enhancements available for ceremonies not held in the blue room.
