Solihull waives wedding notice renewal fees

Solihull Council has announced it is waiving wedding and civil partnership notice renewal fees for couples whose notices have expired during Covid-19.

Solihull Council’s Cabinet Member for Stronger and Safer Communities, Cllr Alison Rolf, said: “Over the last four months, many couples have had to cope with the heartache of cancelled and postponed ceremonies. As we start holding weddings and civil partnerships again we’re finding that on top of everything else they have had to contend with, many have notices that have expired.

“Having considered all the options we decided that the fairest thing to do was to waive the renewal fees. We recognise that this has been a very stressful time for couples who either had arranged or were in the process of arranging their ‘Big Day’. Renewal fees are usually £35 per person so it’s not much in the grand scheme of things but this is at least one less thing for couples to worry about.”

Couples whose notices have expired will be contacted automatically by staff at the Register Office. If either person lives outside of Solihull they need to check with their local register office to see if they are waiving the fees or not.
