This takes place usually the evening before the wedding and the two witnesses to the marriage must attend.

The legal requirement to make the declaration that you are not in any way related to each other by kindred or affinity is made in front of these two witnesses and the clergy person solemnising the marriage.

A full rehearsal of the service will take place so that you can then relax on your big day and enjoy yourself.

A couple must produce a Marriage Registration Form (MRF) to the marriage solemniser before a marriage can take place.
