Order marriage certificates


Delivery of certificate orders may be delayed due to reduced postal services.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

You can buy copies of marriage certificates for marriages registered in East Sussex, excluding Brighton & Hove.

If you are marrying in a Church or other licensed religious premises, your certificates will be issued up to 7 days after your marriage schedule has been returned to the register office.

If your certificate order is urgent, we recommend using our ‘Next Day Service’ as detailed below.
