Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn - Isle of Anglesey County Council

Marriage and civil partnerships

If you have decided to be married by civil ceremony on Anglesey you can be assured of an individual and special ceremony tailored to your own requirements.

Notices of marriage and civil partnerships

You will need to give formal notice to ensure that you are legally free to marry or form a civil partnership.

Your notices will usually be given at your local register office in the area where you live, but there are some exceptions, such as:

  • if you live outside Wales or England, please contact us for advice on where and when to give notice
  • if you are a foreign national, please contact us for advice on where and when to give notice 

You must give notice at least 28 days before the date of your ceremony and you must know where you are getting married.

This can increase to 70 days depending on your immigration status.

For this reason, we advise you give your notices at least 3 months before your ceremony.

The formal notice will be displayed on a public notice board in the area where you have given your notice. If you give notice in Anglesey it will be displayed at The Register Office, Llangefni. Anglesey registration district comes under ‘Ynys Môn’.

At the end of the notice period, the Registration Service will then prepare your schedule, the document that gives you legal authority to marry or enter into a civil partnership.

Church in Wales and Church of England

If you are marrying in the Church of England or Church in Wales by Banns or Common Licence, you should contact your vicar regarding any necessary legal preliminaries.

Chapel, civil ceremonies and other churches

If you are marrying in any other sort of church or chapel or by civil ceremony in a Register Office or approved venue, notice of marriage has to be given personally to your local Superintendent Registrar.

Civil partnerships

Any couple that registers a civil partnership has the same rights as a married couple in areas like tax, social security, inheritance and workplace benefits.

Getting registered in Wales and England?

  • Get advice and information from Direct Gov.
  • Decide where you want to register. For instance, at a register office or an approved venue like a hotel.
  • Fix the date, but check that a registrar can attend if you have chosen an approved venue.
  • Arrange to give notice of your intention to register to the registration authority where each of you live.
  • You each have to give notice at least 28 clear days before the date for registering.
  • Get registered. Sign the legal document in front of the registrar and your two witnesses.


When you go to the Register Office you will be asked to produce certain documents, depending on your personal circumstances. These documents should be original documents not photocopies, and may include:

  • valid passport
  • birth certificate

  • evidence of any change of name (such as Deed Poll/Statutory Declaration)
  • decree absolute of divorce
  • death certificate of late wife or husband
  • prior to 1983 a person born in the UK obtained British Citizenship automatically. For a person born after 1st January 1983 the nationality is dependent on the nationality  of the parents.
