Yet another friend is having problems with this. He and his partner of 15 years have decided that they wish to wed. We are to be witnesses at a very private wedding because his family do not approve of his choice ( a lovely lass, but he is quite well-heeled and she isn't).

He and she own a house in our village in E. Yorks.. Her name is on the deeds. He also has a house in Dorset, but spent most of last year living up here (he's a Yorkshireman by birth and wants to marry in Yorkshire). She has a house (rented) in Dorset and works down there most of the time.

He has asked at Bridlington and been told that she has to register in Dorset (doesn't want to because it could affect her tenancy - complex). I say that all she has to do is arrive here and register as a resident, stay here for a few weeks, get married and then they can resume their 'in-between' life. The Registrars are being really stroppy. He is 68 (divorced for 20 years), she is 53 (widowed). Am I right, because they are getting fed-up of the complexities and wondering whether not to bother - but there are things like inheritance tax......

In Corby, it's not a Register or a Registry, it's a Registration Office.

I've just typed Bridlington Registry Office into the search bar and up it came. A whole section on it, plus a list of registry offices in the country. It appears that there are several correct ways of referring to this office including Registration, Register etc., so everyone should be happy. :)

If I can get the gilding on the deckle-edged slate slabs done and delivered on time, your invitations will all be sent from China on the swiftest cargo-steamer available. Thanks again everyone.

The woman on the phone was still being awkward when they rang again on Friday, so our friends informed her that it was just 7 days residency and what paperwork they needed. She said they were wrong, they said they had legal advice! Anyway they got an appointment with the actual registrar who is quite happy that they qualified legally.
