Marriage Registration in UK without Notice

I have heard that there is Marriage Registration Office that one could just
walk in and have a Marriage registered, somewhere in Central England. Can
anyone please confirm this and give the link for any information.

Re: Marriage Registration in UK without Notice

What do you mean by registered? Is this just a recognition of a marriage which took place outside of the UK?

Re: Marriage Registration in UK without Notice

We just registered and we had to be resident for seven consecutive periods of 24 hours (so essentially nine days including the days of arrival and registration. You then register at the register office local to that address (not the address where you will marry) at least 28 days before the wedding.

The residence needs to be continuously at the same house, so no nipping off on a trip with overnights in different places.

Im 99.6% sure there's no quicky alternative in England, at least.

Re: Marriage Registration in UK without Notice

Maybe you are thinking of Gretna Green and various other Scottish border villages/towns. I don't know what the conditions are but I'm sure you could Google it.

Gretna Green used to be famous for quick marriages but the law has changed. It is just over the Scottish Border.

Nixi was quicker...

That's peanuts compared to the divorce costs when you realize you got married too hastily
