“We’re going on honeymoon a few days after the ceremony and the airline/hotel has told us that if we bring a copy of our Marriage Certificate, they’ll upgrade us to First Class/The Presidential Suite. Can you give us a copy?”
This is a question I’ve been asked a few times, and unfortunately the answer is “No, not really, because I don’t issue it, the Registrar does, once you’ve returned the Marriage Schedule, which is what we sign on the day”. But there is good news.
At the rehearsal for their wedding at Prestonfield House tomorrow, Alex & Patrick, (who are extremely well organised) told me that the Registrar says that if they come in to the office with their signed Marriage Schedule, they’ll issue them with a Marriage Certificate and as many copies as they want to pay for there and then. So now you know – and so do I. Thanks Alex & Patrick – enjoy your honeymoon!
