Marriages & civil partnerships


While the Register Office is improving, we're the Civic Office.

From Monday 2nd October the Register Office will be relocating to Sutton Civic Office while a new marriage and conference room is built.

During this time, which we estimate to be up to 6 months, we will be holding registration appointments, statutory marriages (witness only) and citizenship ceremonies at the main Civic Office. Please read our Sutton council newsroom article for more information.

The legal waiting period for the issue of certificates, that permit a marriage or civil partnership to take place is 28 clear days (or may be extended to 70 days for those subject to immigration control). Please visit for further information.

When visiting us for the ceremony, please make sure you get to us with time to spare.
