Hi.

 

Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to help with this.

 

 

Do you mean a Magistrates Court?

 

 

People would not marry in a Magistrates Court although that will probably be next as people seem to think they sort out their relationships in a Magistrates Court when it sits in a domestic violence capacity.

So where can they get married - I thought a magistrate court could do that. They want to be married on the 22nd March 2014 and it was difficult to find a church for them to be married. As unfortunately they do not attend a church.

Thank you.

You do not need a magistrates court.

They need the local office of the registrar of births deaths and marriages.

They do have to book an appointment and there is a procedure to go through.

The closest to the Docklands area is Tower Hamlets here
