Just book a weekend getaway at your favourite country bolthole (not sure where to find one? There are plenty of absolute gems to look at over at www.canopyandstars.co.uk) then look for the nearest register office in Wales et voila – super relaxed wedding vibes incoming!
How do I get married in a registry office?
Well. If you’re considering getting married in Wales, you will need to start by giving 28 days notice BEFORE the big day. In plain English, to ‘give notice’ simply means that you are making your intention to get married official by signing a legal document at your chosen register office, it’s that simple. And once the declaration is signed, you then have 12 whole months to plan your perfect day. If you’re keen to get hitched or elope way faster than that – you can totally plan a legal elopement or small wedding in Wales in just under a month and for a fraction of the cost involved with more traditional weddings.
How much does it cost to get married in a registry office in England and Wales?
Great question! Not that much actually! Fees for most of the basic ceremonies start at £46 (some – like the Town Hall in Llandudno for example – give you the option to upgrade to a nicer/bigger room for a bit more dollar) plus around £11 for the marriage certificate. The Registry Office in Mold is actually quite pretty and has plenty of beautiful natural light streaming through big bay windows in the ceremony room.
Having your wedding in a country pub
It’s where this beautiful spring wedding took place, followed by a super relaxed family gathering at The Mulberry In in Llwynmawr, on the outskirts of Glyn Ceiriog. No formal seating plans, easy flowing wedding cocktails, and a tasty meal shared with family members in the midst of the most glorious Welsh countryside.
For a stressfree wedding day full of joy, nature & love you really can’t get wrong with a relaxed registry office wedding in Wales followed by a reception in a pub.
