Registrar fees

There is a non-refundable booking fee of £55.00 for civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies. This must be paid within 14 days of making a booking. If paying by cheque, make it payable to Midlothian Council. Credit and debit cards also acceptable.

If you decide to cancel the ceremony after lodging all the paperwork with the registration office, we will only refund the cost of the marriage certificate.
