To purchase a commemorative marriage certificate, a silver (25th), ruby (40th), golden (50th), or diamond (60th) wedding anniversary, visit the website of the General Register Office (GRO).
The actual wedding facts are printed on a custom-designed certificate and displayed in a presentation box.
You must place your order at least ten working days ahead of time. If you don’t have a GRO index reference number, it will take longer. To utilize this service, you’ll need a debit or credit card.
Other ways to apply for a Commemorative Marriage Certificate
Call the General Register Office to order a certificate by phone. If you supply the GRO index reference number, certificates are £39; otherwise, they are £42.
