Wedded bliss with our guide to getting married in Kirklees

Getting married, wedding checklist

If you’re thinking about tying the knot, whatever ceremony you have in mind, head over to our Weddings and Civil Partnerships website for a comprehensive guide to your perfect celebrations, whatever your style or budget.

You might have already bought the matching ties and wedding bands, thought about the colour scheme and flower decorations but it’s important to remember the legal requirements too.

Notice of marriage

It is a legal requirement to give notice of the intention to marry or form a civil partnership. Couples are required to give at least 28 days’ notice, but not more than 12 months. In the district they live in regardless of where the ceremony will take place in England. Kirklees residents can book notice appointments online.
