A step by step guide to the perfect wedding at Bignell Park Hotel...

Step 1

Book your venue with the manager of the approved premises of your choice, deciding date and time of your wedding ceremony.

Step 2

The manager of your venue will give you details of how and when to contact the Superintendent Registrar (who will advise you on the legal preliminaries to your marriage, and organise and conduct the ceremony) and the Registrar who will legally register your marriage.

Step 3

Book the registration staff to conduct your ceremony by immediately telephoning the Superintendent Registrar of the district which the premises come under, to ensure they are available to conduct your ceremony. The manager of the premises of your choice will put you in contact with the appropriate office.

Registrar Telephone Number: +44 (0) 845 129 5900
Fax: +44 (0) 1865 815 534
Email: bicester.registrar@oxforshire.gov.uk
Opening Hours: Monday - Friday 9.00am - 4.30pm

Please remember that you must have registration staff to be able to get married.

Step 4

Make an appointment with the Superintendent Registrar of your district to complete the legal documentation of the marriage. Timing is crucial at this point, and you will be given either a provisional booking form which gives you full details or advice at the time of the booking the registration staff in Step 3.

Step 5

Just before the wedding, arrange an appointment with the S.R. who is conducting your marriage to finalise the details of your ceremony. Music, poetry and additional vows are all things that you may wish to consider.
