Before you can get married or register your civil partnership, you must both give notice in person at your local register office, regardless of where you are holding your ceremony. If you live in Leeds you will need to make an appointment.
If you are a foreign national from outside the European Union or are marrying or forming a civil partnership with a foreign national from outside the European Union you must read the relevant section below.
Documents you must provide
We will need to see evidence of your name, age, nationality, immigration status, address, and, if you have been married before, your marital status.
