    Just over £100 and that included extra to have it in "chambers" at Town Hall rather than the small registry office :D

    Its a beautiful room where the council meets - all old fashioned - except for the unexpected twist that each seat has a button connected to a voting panel which lights up "In favour", "undecided" or "against" - good job no one pressed one

    The registry office for us was £37 iirc, & it was £30 each to the local council for the license, so a total of just under £100 :D

    I think it's about £100 - £150 here. I don't know personally, but I was talking to a girl at the mums and baby group who said it was about that much. I was surprised actually, thought it would be a lot more.

    were having a civil ceremony but at a country inn. it think its about 350 to get the registrar to come to the venue. our whole wedding is costing about £1k as we decided against the sit down meal and just having a buffet and party in the private barn. and the cost of dresses and decorations and some fizzy.

    My OH and I are going to have a look round the local register office tonight and hopefully book our wedding, its £30 each for notice to get the license and from £65-£105 (rough guess memories crap at mo!) for the registry office depending what day of the week you do it on, we're hoping for a Saturday which is £95 (I think) but the charges go up each year on the 31st of March and I think vary slightly from area to area so best to ring your local office and find out!

    yep £100 up here too, got married at south queensferry edinburgh, the registry office is a lovely 16c building with a huge bay window overlooking the forth rail bridge...bargain!

    The rest of it inc honeymoon etc came to about £2k, we had a sit down meal for about 25 (those who came to the wedding) and a traditional scottish piss up for a further 60 in the evening.

    I can honestly say i had everything i wanted, 3 bridesmaids, a convoy of classic minis as wedding cars, and everyone i loved there.

    Ended up sliding down the bannister at the hotel in my wedding dress. Friends helped out with cakes, photography etc and we used our wedding music, first dance last dance, music from the meal and put them onto CD's as our favours...as they were such good tunes! put them in a double CD case with a blank CD at the back for people to burn their photos and send them to us as we could not afford the photographers!! ended up with loads!

    Got married on a Friday too, which helped with costs!
