Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM)

I will give you the Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) form for you to complete, this needs to be completed and lodged with me at least one month and one day prior to the ceremony.

Mr & Mrs Jones

When the NOIM is completed and signed by myself, I would require a deposit as this then forms a commitment from me that I will not book any other wedding on that day that may coincide with your special day. So it is best to do this as soon as possible.
